Barack Obama Has Terrible Taste in Movies


Over at Daily Intel, they've discovered the unlikely source for Barack Obama's catchy catchphrase about red states and blue states: Robin Williams's 2006 comedian-becomes-president turkey Man of the Year. If you're gonna steal a line from a movie, why that movie? We would expect better from a guy who claims to love The Wire.

We fully expect Vulture hero Mike Huckabee to start screaming "I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!" in upcoming debates.
