For the first time in his presidency, Barack Obama has done something for which he has my genuine gratitude. Following a fund-raiser in Austin, TX, the wind picked up while the Obamas were boarding Air Force One. The First Wookie's skirt threatened to rise, and Obama threw himself on a grenade: he put his hands on the Wookie's carrier-deck derriere to protect all Americans -- heck, the entire wired world -- from a sight no one should have to see.
President Obama, I know that I have called you a liar, a psychopath, a narcissist, an idiot, a coward, a manipulative little twit, a loser, a waste of oxygen -- well, the list is too long to repeat, and I meant every word of it. But, honestly, man to man, you went the extra mile on that one, and I, for one, salute your courage in the face of a very ugly situation.
