Irony: Obama urges Burma to adopt system where law is stronger than any leader

Oh, yes, he did. President Obama said that in Burma yesterday. He also said this.

Stop! Our knees hurt from slapping them in fits of giggles! Could he possibly have said that with a straight face? Hey, Obama isn’t just a leader, though. He’s a Sun-God, what with being the “light and the future” and all. Totally different. Putting law above leaders is just for pesky mortals and stuff.

Maybe you need to run roughshod over the law, to find out what’s in the law?

Twitter users call him out on this “practice what you preach” irony, and rightfully so.
