President Rimmer

So this afternoon I read Jim Geraghty's posts about Obama promising to sit down and have tea with Achmadinejad despite the regime's wholesale election fraud and slaughter of protesters (that second linked post is particularly disturbing). Then I was looking up some quotes from Red Dwarf, and found the following:
Rimmer: Look, just because it's an armor-plated alien killing machine that salivates unspeakable slobber, doesn't mean it's a bad person. What we've got to do is get it round a table, and put together a solution package, perhaps over tea and biscuits.

So I looked up the scene, and holy crap, O really is Rimmer (the guy with the metal H on his head, for those of you unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is Red Dwarf):

Scary shit.

Obama probably wants to know how Ahmadinejad pulled it off. I can easily imagine the same damn thing happening here in 2010 or 2012, if the election results might not be to Obama's liking.

Nothing would get his goat more than having a Republican congress for the last two years of this (first and hopefully last) term, and the thought of LOSING in 2012 probably makes his stomach turn.
