So President Intercepted decides to give Bob Dylan a Medal of Freedom. And as appalled as I am about that because it cheapens that particular award forever, it is within his purview. Additionally, putting it in the following context, it actually makes sense:
1) Obama was really into pot in high school (aka choom in Hawaii). To the point of thanking the 'Choom Gang' in his high school yearbook. To developing new and novel ways of smoking dope, such as in a car with the windows up to maximize buzz.
2) Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize for doing absolutely nothing (and actually becoming one of the more war-mongering presidents, regardless of the international law he seeks to give sovereignty here in the US). So after seeing one of the premier and (previously) most prestigious awards in the world come to naught, he has no real frame of reference.
Speaking of war-mongering, does anyone NOT think that he's kept Syria on hold, policy-wise, until just before the election in order to get a ratings-bounce??
