MR. LENO: Now, are they going to put a basketball — I imagine the bowling alley has been just burned and closed down.
MR. OBAMA: No, no. I have been practicing all — (laughter.)
MR. LENO: Really? Really?
MR. OBAMA: I bowled a 129. (Laughter and applause.)
MR. LENO: No, that’s very good. Yes. That’s very good, Mr. President.
MR. OBAMA: It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something. (Laughter.)
MR. LENO: No, that’s very good.
MR. OBAMA: No, listen, I’m making progress on the bowling, yes.
The first appearance by a sitting president on “The Tonight Show” may well end up being the last.
President Obama, in his taping with Jay Leno Thursday afternoon, attempted to yuk it up with the funnyman, and ended up insulting the disabled.
Allow me to ask, what the hell is a sitting president doing on Jay Leno in the first place?
Instead, how about comparing your miserable bowling with having your administration driving the country into the ditch? Perhaps you mean, like er, it’s like having Congressmen put in loopholes on the bailouts and then demonizing AIG and scapegoating Libby? And how about staying in Washington instead of flying a 12-hr round trip for the occasion?
AJ Stratta lets it rip:
Yeah, what a joke. The economy is in shambles and the politically connected rich are getting million dollar bonuses from struggling tax payers and our President is bombing out on Leno. Yeah, there’s ‘change’ for you. Insult the hurting kids as you rob their families of their wealth. Our President is a real piece of work.

The President’s brain f**t is also timely: Hugh Hewitt reminds us that
Saturday, btw, is World Down Syndrome Awareness Day. March 21st was chosen for its numerical representation–3/21–being symbolic of the third “bonus” copy of the 21st chromosome, which is the genetic cause of Down syndrome. This discovery was made 50 years ago by Jerome Lejeune.
Let’s support the Special Olympics, a non-profit which will most likely be affected by Obama’s end to charitable tax exemptions.
