That Fat Lip Might Give Obama Some Street Cred (Lib's hardcore metrosexual fantasy)
NPR ^ | Saturday, November 27, 2010 | Scott Simon

Posted on 11/27/2010 10:23:34 AM PST by kristinn

Just three weeks after getting a shellacking in the midterm elections, President Obama got a fat lip.

The president played basketball yesterday with some friends in the gym of the Fort McNair Army Base, and reportedly took an elbow in the mouth from an opposing player who went up for a shot.

It took 12 stitches to close The First Fat Lip, if you please. I'm not sure that Joe Frazier needed 12 stitches after the Thrilla in Manila, though the White House stressed that a smaller filament was used, which increases the number of stitches, but leaves a smaller scar.

I wonder if having a larger scar wouldn't actually fortify President Obama's profile, as he contends with Kim Jong Il, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Vladimir Putin. Imagine a president with a gnarly, vivid scar telling the rulers of China, "Nice country ya' got here. I'd hate to see something happen to it if you didn't stop foolin' around with the value of your currency. Know what I mean?"

As recent presidential injuries go, President Obama's is almost valiant. His immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush, famously choked on a pretzel. President Bill Clinton tore a tendon stumbling on the steps of Greg Norman's house after a round of golf.

But an elbow in the chops is a battle ribbon in basketball. Mediocre players don't have to worry about their dental work. An elbow is given to aggressive players who swing their own sharp limbs to grab a ball or push off a defender, although the White House stressed that the president was elbowed inadvertently.

Yes, I’m sure that our foreign enemies are going to be terrified of the American boy-president who hurt his lip playing games like your average teenager.

Gimme a break... this is really a stretch.

Hmmmm.....street cred, eh?

Sounds a little profile-y to me. Racist even.

Somebody ping The Secret Service. Sounds to me like Scott Simon is wishing harm upon Ubama.

You are correct about the Klinton episode.

And when did Bush choke on a pretzel. No one remembers that.

"Lib's hardcore metrosexual fantasy"

When relayed and popularized by someone it becomes their metro sexual fantasy.

Uhm. In street cred, Obama was beaten like a bitch.

Only a liberal can turn getting elbowed in the face as a good thing.

Now Obama has a fat lip to go with his fat head. I literally have not been able to look at this imposter. It infuriates me that he is on TV every single day.

He is a disgrace to the nation. But now I eagerly await a glimpse of him. I would bet that he won’t be on the screen until his lip has healed. He is way too egotistical to allow himself to be seen with his lip stitched. It would be wonderful if they just stitched his pie hole shut , period.

If the Won cuts himself shaving, will that make him more manly?

I mean, cuts himself shaving his face, not his legs...

Man, I love watching these people melt down...

Yeah, yeah I know. 0's a real man!

No matter how I try to envision this injury, I keep thinking that it would have to look quite a bit like a hemorrhoid.

And when did Bush choke on a pretzel.

It was when he was teaching grade school children to snort cocaine, and he was notified that an Airliner had crashed into one of the Twin Towers. He picked up a pretzel instead of the hotline phone, and tried to swallow it whole, causing him to choke, which led to him not responding to the situation on 9/11 instantly.

At least that's what I read in the New York Times. Or what I remember.
