Do you remember that one BDSM joke that Abraham Lincoln made that one time? And what about John Kennedy's hilarious masturbation one-liner? And then obviously there's that classic wooden dildo joke that Teddy Roosevelt is so famous for.
Well, last night at a fundraiser in Los Angeles, Barack Obama joined that hallowed group of presidential filth-talkers by making a joke about the First Lady's blowjob techniques…
He warmed up with some jokes about the first lady's appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show. "Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well," he said, after saying that she's taken some criticism on her technique "because she doesn’t go all the way down" – a line that he let hang, naughtily, provoking laughter from the crowd.
I don't know about you, but I am not comfortable with this, and I hope it isn't seen as some sort of precedent for acceptable presidential behavior. Harmless as a double entendre like this might be, it sets us on a slippery slope from which I'd just as soon stay well away.
Think about it. Do you actually want to hear Mitt Romney talking about his and his wife's private snuggling habits? And why exactly does likely-VP choice Rob Portman do such a good impersonation of a chicken? Do you really want to know?
