Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he's gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
He bowled a 129, the president said.
"That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically.
It's "like the Special Olympics or something," the president said.Did that make it to broadcast, I wonder? Goodness knows that had a Republican said it, the tidal wave of (self-)righteous indignation would be immediate and it would be all over the media.
Perhaps this is a Democratic tradition; Al Gore referred once to "the extra chromosome right wing."
