David Lynch, creator of the cult-hit comic strip, The Angriest Dog in the World, announced yesterday that President Obama has won the annual Angriest Man in the World award for threatening to punch out John McCain behind the White House utility shed.
The fracas, in which the President reprised his by now familiar persona of the offended man, began when the two Senators expressed their candid views on Susan Rice, the current US Ambassador to the UN. Mrs. Rice lied to the American people about Benghazi, the two Senators agreed, when she informed Americans on five Sunday talk shows that the attack in Libya was the result of a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muslim video.
"Let them come after me," Obama responded minutes later, clearly angry, and leaving no doubt that he had been offended once again by the suggestion that his team would "play politics" with foreign policy and security issues.
Lynch noted that the heated exchange and the challenge issued by Obama to the two Senators, brought him back to the playground, earning nostalgia points and sealing the President's victory.
Elsewhere, AP, also reporting on the award, quoted a representative of the Black Panther party as supporting the President's emotional defense of his team, even if "some white geezer ass" had to be whipped in the process.
