Exactly...

Obama is Spock: It's quite logical | Salon

Quote:
In a September 2008 broadcast of the popular NPR show "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me," guest Leonard Nimoy recalled a recent encounter with a fan.

"About a year and a half ago, I was at a political event," Nimoy recalled. "One of our current campaigners for the office of president of the United States saw me--and as he approached, he gave me the Vulcan hand signal."

You can practically hear Nimoy's eyebrow raise. "It was not John McCain."
His manner of speaking isn't so unlike Nimoy's, come to think of it...

Republican party leader Rush also had an intelligent comment to add:

Quote:
The president makes $400,000 a year. Now, according to Kelly O'Donnell, he's been hoarding his money. But now he felt like maybe the economy was coming back enough that he could leave the White House and the $100-a-pound Kobe beef, and go out and get a burger with Plugs Biden at a burger joint? And this is a sign the economy's coming back? This makes me want to puke. This makes me want to throw up.
(They went to a burger joint where burgers go for 7 bucks, for those who like truthiness)

Is it only in Germany where McDonald's puts mustard on the hamburgers? Or is the dijon mustard (jammy) the issue?

Yes, it's the fanciness of the $1.79 Dijon mustard that offends Hannity.

Eh, Hannity didn't seem offended to me in the clip. There was a mildly snotty, needling undertone to it, but he didn't act shocked.

it's also, by far, the best burger joint in the DC-area. Ray's Hellburger is the hamburger-only spin-off restaurant of Ray's The Steaks, where you can get an amazing steak, and both are less than a 15 minute walk from my house.

no reservations accepted at either, and people happily wait an hour or more for a table.

because they're elitists.

rush limbaugh =

like seriously, dont they have better things to talk about than Obama eating a burger? like has Rush ever made some good points about policy with legitimate arguments to back it up and intelligent statements without personally attacking anyone? ... I havent heard any at least.

and the way that between him and hannity that "liberal" is like some sort of swear word. They talk about liberals almost like the way the nazi's talked about the Jews. It is a different point of view, not a curse word or insult.

they seem to believe that anyone who has a difference of opinion or another view point is instantly a bad person. if they opened up their minds to what other people thought and had to say, they might learn something. I learn a lot from both conservatives and liberal, and I try to treat both sides with RESPECT no matter how much I disagree with their point of view.

I guess Grey Poupon dug their own grave marketing themselves that way, huh? At least in terms of what it's apparently now PC for public figures to admit to eating. But that was in the 80s, when it was cool to be a haughty rich guy...
