YOUNG MAN WITH A HORN:

The One

It was good up until the final voiceover.

"is he ready to lead"?

C'mon. Should've been "how stupid does he think the American people are?" or "is he friggin kidding?" or "whiskey, tango, foxtrot!" or "what a schmuck" or . . . well you get the idea.

Agreed. Pretty weak ending.

Well, it's not a "fun" ending, but I like how it ends with a serious question. Sure we can have a nice laugh, but all kidding aside, etc. If they'd just gone for a zinger, it might have come off as too frivolous and smartass.

It's August 1st, everything is frivolous.

Obama IS frivilous, as is his whole campaign.

When you're fed material by the man himself demonstrating what a doofus he is, it's a mistake to even bring up the question of leadership. And asking is he "ready" implies that at some point this total lightweight will in fact be ready to lead. Mistake.

You either let the statements hang in the air for the audience to recognize them for what they are, or you cut to the chase and point out that these are the statements of a colossal goof who has no business running for dogcatcher let alone POTUS.
