A Half-Glass-Full Mentality

I like comedy. A lot. I laughed at this;

“And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I’m sorry it’s the case, and I’ll work hard to try to elevate it. So the idea that somehow I was trying to needle the Democrats, it’s just – gosh, it’s probably Texas. Who knows what it is. But I’m not that good at pronouncing words anyway, Juan.”

and this;

“think that the vice president is a person reflecting a half-glass-full mentality, and that is he’s been able to look at – as have I, and I hope other Americans have – the fact that the tyrant was removed, 12 million people voted, there is an Iraqi constitution in place that is a model for – and unique for the Middle East.”

But in the midst of such mirth I ask you this; does the fact that the head of state, of what is certainly the most dangerous rogue state in the world, happens to have such obvious comedic sensibilities mitigate the dilemma one bit?
