Obama said ASS. Who Cares?

He said “ass”. *giggle giggle snort snort*

I was rereading the story about the Gloucestor Dragon’s (who rumour has it have reversed their “win by 5 goals and you lose” ASSinine rule. I mean next thing you know they would fail kids who get more than 5 marks higher than the clASS average. So back on topic. In that post I said “ASS whooping”.

Well it has dawned on me that ASS is not a word we should worry about. It’s a very commonly used word in society and very acceptable and I think the fact that the President got a bit of flack for it from both the left and right wing media is ridiculASS. I mean anyone who watched “That 70’s Show”, one of my favourite sitcoms, knows Red Foreman would say the word ASS almost every episode. “Get your ASS in the car”, “Do it or I’ll kick your ASS.”, etc.

Even George Carlin, going back decades did a bit about the 7 words you can’t say on television. ASS was not one of the 7 words.

So the verdict is? ASS gets a pASS.

    He might have said, kiss a donkey or kick a mule.

    It’s a matter of being presidential. I think people are getting nervous that they elected an inexperienced lightwieght and he keeps giving them reason to believe that.

    You’re right taken alone the word “ass” is no big deal but taken in context with his “beer summit” his over sensitivity to critcism and numerous other slightly unpresidential mannerisms Obama using the word “ass” could concern some people.

    Huckabee bleeped it when he covered it on fox, that was funnier than the actual word.
