When George W. Bush took office, we were still downshifting after the Monica Lewinsky (and other associated) scandals during the Clinton administration. There were quite a few Americans who were glad there was a change in leadership. About that time, I remember my father laughing at a cartoon of Bush and Vice President Cheney ordering at a restaurant. Bush asks the waitress if he could have a "quickie" and she berated him about how the country expected him to be different than his predecessor and how women were not objects subject to the whims of powerful men. This went on for several panels before the waitress stormed off.
Without looking up from his menu, Cheney informed the president the word is pronounced, "quiche."
It wasn't the type of humor my dad usually laughed at, but he said he liked this one because subtextually it was pointing out Bush didn't have the scandals Clinton had, but he certainly had his flaws too - aside from The War on Terror, mispronunciations were a hallmark of W's presidency.
Taking a page from that cartoon, I paired together a couple aspects of the world today and got this. The president may use his narrow vocabulary a little too often, but he isn't so far gone that he'll insult the international games while North and South Korea are making nice. In fact, at this point, he hasn't said much of anything about the games, which is a nice contrast to his comments in 2012.
