Holy crap! Did you guys hear about this Kanye West fellow? Apparently, he had been hitting the liquor a little hard prior to strolling down the red carpet at the Mtv Video Awards. Better yet, I guess he kept hitting the liquor during the show and got up in arms when this girl named Taylor Swift won an award for best female video or something. Apparently, this Kanye fellow went completely out of character (most likely fueled by the alcohol...we can't all just puke in a trash can and go quietly into the night), and he lost his shit. Jumping onto the stage, he shoved Swift out of the way and told everyone that Beyonce should have won the award.
This was big news, and then Patrick Swayze died and reminded us all how much we loved Red Dawn. Now, get up here and piss in the radiator!
Anyway, yeah, so Kanye was vilified the world over because he dared to speak his mind. That's what America's about. Okay, so maybe the forum in which he chose to speak wasn't the best means of getting his message out. Isn't that what Twitter is for? Bitching about something you don't like?
The funniest part of this whole thing, I thought, was when someone caught President Obama saying "He's a jackass" over the whole Kanye affair. Congratulations, Mr. President! You've finally found something all Americans can agree on! Ironically (based on the previous paragraph), this was reported through Twitter! Ah, there's the main reason for Twitter: reporting on verbal Presidential gaffes.
Anyway, what President Obama should have done was to go a more classic route. Had he uttered the following instead of going the "jackass" route (no matter how true it is), he could have had people applauding his verbal aplomb all the while they're scratching their heads saying "What the hell did he just say?"
Pronounced: "Kwon-doh poh-day-case tay ray-ghee ay-ore-oom fay-kay-roont?"
The other funny line that came out of this was someone (I think Katy Perry) "tweeted" that it was like Kanye had stepped on a kitten. That made me laugh, because of the mental image. But really, which is worse? Kanye stepping of a figurative kitten, or all the kittens that God kills when all the middle-age loser country music fans are masturbating to Taylor Swift's video? Exactly.
 "I see"
