Obama: "Here I come to save the day!"

Obama's inept response to Syria has me channeling comedians.

First, I flashbacked to Steve Martin's classic 'Let's get small' after hearing John Kerry promise an "unbelievably small" military action.

Then I thought the one thing Barack Obama must do to make his televised address to the nation complete is wear his bomber jacket, drag out a record player, and do the late great Andy Kaufman's 'Mighty Mouse' bit lip-synching ♪♫ "Here I come to save the day!"

And on Dennis Miller's radio show, I heard caller 'Brian from Indiana' suggest that Obama use the Benny Hill Theme Music as an intro into his speech. Yeah, that should just about cover it!

More comedians begin piling on. I always said comedically-speaking, Obama is one target-rich environment.
"President Obama needs your help starting World War III! Find out how you can help!"
