That was utterly glorious.
After receiving no reaction from the assembled reporters, Obama added, "Because a giant spider is protecting this chamber full of precious jewels, just like Congress is protecting its…. God, how are you people not seeing this?"
"How am I supposed to effectively lead this nation when [attorney general nominee Eric] Holder has to stop the meeting and ask what the story of Taurus using the black lotus powder to kill the five guard lions has to do with increasing broadband Internet connections nationwide?" Obama said while vigorously rubbing his temples.
But this is the absolute jewel:
"There is always a way, if the desire be coupled with courage."
Obama should totally make a point of slipping in REH quotes in his campaign speeches, Crom knows there are plenty of awesome ones out there.
"Mr. President, do you have anything to say to America's enemies?""Show me my foes, and I'll cleave their skulls to the teeth!"
"Mr. President, what is your stance on Wicca's acknowledgment as a religion by Congress, and subsequent attacks by critics who deem it devil-worship and black magic?""If they are black magicians, how will they suffer you to harry them? If they are not, there is no evil in them. Crom's devils! Let men worship what gods they will."
"Mr. President, do you have a response to Arnold Schwarzenegger's disparaging remarks about your physique?"
"Did you deem yourself strong, because you were able to twist the heads off civilized folk, poor weaklings with muscles like rotten string? Hell! Break the neck of a wild Cimmerian bull before you call yourself strong. I did that, before I was a full-grown man, like this!"
*breaks reporter's neck*
