Role Playing

All the links I've seen concerning Barack Obama's remark in re: Morgan Freeman characterize it as a "slip" or a "gaffe," but it's clearly a joke, and a pretty funny one, too.

Oh, what horrendous boner. That's bound to offend absolutely nobody.

The gall, the arrogance, does he REALLY think he's God? I'm reminded of the mockmentory (Sinal Tap-like, forgot the name) in which the guitarist said, "Jimmy Page wrote Stairway to Heaven when he was 27, I could play it when I was 12--I think that says something. Only, Obama was in on his own joke.

what exactly is the slip and/or gaffe? the only thing i saw that stood out to me when i checked that link was the phrase "the obamas" when it looked like the only two black people in the photo were barack and condoleeza rice.

is that the slip that you are showing here, dr frank?
