Ram Jam from the top rope!

At Politico, a short post about Obama’s thoughts on cable news:

I’ve used this analogy before, it feels like WWF wrestling. Everybody’s got their role to play. I know a lot of these guys. And if Pat Buchanan is having a conversation with Chris Matthews or talking to Keith Olbermann, everybody’s got their set pieces and, so, I don’t feel as if I’m learning anything from the debate.

The typically even-handed, intellectual sentiment we’ve come to expect from the President. But when I saw the headline:

I thought it said “Obama: I like WWF wrestling.” Now, I’m from South Carolina originally, and live in North Carolina now, so I have a bit of an emotional connection to “sports entertainment.” So when I misread this headline, my little redneck heart fluttered like it did when I first saw Stacy Keibler.

But I should have known it was too good to be true. You see, the WWF doesn’t exist anymore. It’s the WWE now. The WWF is something different.
