65% of Americans Give Evidence that Universal Suffrage…

…may have been a huge mistake.

I do, however, have to give serious props to President Obama for this:

During a May visit to the White House by the actor Will Smith and his family, Obama was quizzed by Smith’s 13-year-old son, Jaden, about the possibility of extraterrestrial life. In an interview with the BBC, Smith recounted Obama’s reaction to his son:

“OK, I can neither confirm or deny the existence of extraterrestrials,” Obama reportedly said from the White House Situation Room. “But I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting, and if there would have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room.”

That is *exactly* the Mess With People’s Heads answer I would give if I were the President. High comedic fives, Mr. President!

    Funny, but “invasion by aliens” doesn’t make my list of issues I’m deciding to vote on.

  • victor

    I guess if the role of the President in such an invasion is to request permission to be clear or imploring the aliens to make no mistakes, we’ve got the right guy for the job in office right now.

      Victor, you just made my day times a thousand.

    That is so hilarious I almost forgot that nobody in the media has ever asked the first black president why 65% of all abortions are against 13% of the population.

    • ds

      Could it be because that would be a stupid racist question, perhaps? Hey, you’re black, why do so many black women get abortions?

    He would have been golfing but SOMEONE would have been in that room discussing it. Seriousl, great answer, Barry.

  • Andy, Bad Person

    Yikes. On a lighthearted Yahoo article, the very first comment is a shot at Trig Palin. You just can’t make up the insanity.

      Unfortunately what we’ve got now is less Emperor Kahless and more President Morgan Clark.

  • chris-WRIT

    To be fair, the apparent “bankrupt the world” strategy could be an intentional deterrent to alien invasion.

    I mean, if earths resources are gone, then why would anyone want to invade us???

    Gotta think outside the box people!

      The problem is, for somebody with sufficiently advanced technology the Earth’s resources aren’t gone. Every atom of every element that has ever been on Earth, aside from an orbital junkyard and a few small space probes that mass in the tens of tons combined- is still on Earth. Theoretically, with enough energy and small enough resolution on the atomic manipulating microscopes, it can all be reassembled into whatever form we need it to be in.

      If the culture collapses in the great die-off of the Baby Boomer generation, one of my planned retirement businesses is garbage mining. The plastic alone, which can be ground up and used to feed bacteria to manufacture biodiesel, is a gold mine.

    But the Mormon God *is* an Alien who lives near the planet Kolob! How could Obama possibly be more prepared than Romney?
