Watching the movie Thor made me really, really glad that the leaders of our nation don't wear crazy headgear.
If Obama wore a helmet like Thor's dad, Odin, I don't think I could focus on what he was saying because I'd be too distracted. Obama'd be like "I have a great plan for this country..." and I'd be like "Whatever, dude. I can't take you seriously with that helmet on." It wouldn't be very practical. But on the flip-side, it'd be nice to know that our president is that much more protected, that he's even wearing protective headgear. Maybe it's not such a bad plan after all. And Anthony Hopkins makes it look pretty studly.
Obama should consider getting a gold eyepatch, too - just for the intimidation factor.
