Barack Obama's Diary: I am surrounded by imbeciles

Dear Diary: Sheesh! On days like today it seems that I can't get no respect. While I was conducting a bold and muscular air attack against militant Islamists in Syria, I made the error of saluting two Marines at the foot of the steps of my Marine One chopper, with a Styrofoam cup of tea still in my  hand. The howls of outrage on social media must have been audible from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli. The whole business was more embarrassing even than  Joe Biden's bizarre attempt to take over the Oval Office by disguising himself as a war vet and leaping over the White  House fence while Michelle and I were en route to Camp David. I am surrounded by imbeciles. [ECS]
