Obama and Brooks

HATS OFF

Commander in Chief Barack Obama catches Garth Brooks making off with the presidential spittoon during one of those moments you wonder why neither of them is busy trying to save the economy. Brooks was presented with the "Grammy on the Hill Award" for his leadership in advancing the rights of music makers, while El Jefe was given his 2007 Grammy for best spoken word album for his book The Audacity of Hope. Meanwhile, we're neither audacious nor hopeful.
