Barack Obama: Lessons Learned When Meeting the Troops in Iraq

Barack Obama: Lessons Learned When Meeting the Troops in Iraq
Obama is clearly learning on the job. By next year he'll show up in flat-fronts.

BEFORE (July 2008)

1. PDA
2. Bracelet
3. Posing with Charles Atlas (suffers in a "97 lb. weakling" kind of way by comparison)
AFTER (April 2009)

1. Leave PDA at home; no text message important enough to reply to while meeting the troops
2. If you must wear jewelry, stick with nipple rings or other stuff hidden beneath clothes
3. Always pose with Bravo Company, Pygmy Battalion

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
