At least Obama did better than President Lyndon Johnson in 1967.  Egotistical LBJ gave Pius VI a bust of himself!  The surprised Pope mumbled something in Italian.  One translator said he heard, “Jesus! Who the fuck is this supposed to be?”

Every day you wake up is a good morning – unless you’re driving a train and it’s crashing.
