The notorious and formerly funny movie director Woody Allen is apparently frustrated with the cumbersome operations of American democracy too.
The one-time-father-now-husband-of-his-daughter tells the Spanish-language magazine La Vanguardia that the United States' Democratic Smoker-in-Chief could accomplish a whole lot more from his White House if he didn't have so many disorderly, annoying people objecting, distracting and criticizing him all the time.
Malcolm's post, it should be noted, had absolutely nothing to do with smoking.
It's one thing to criticize the president or his administration for the things they do and say; that's obviously fair game. But Malcolm's treatment of Obama and, particularly, Vice President BIden is nothing more than childish name-calling, completely lacking in substance or reason. The only thing more odd than the LA Times' sanctioning this petty little sniping would be if any of Malcolm's readers find his tedious taunts amusing.
(Oh, also: Woody Allen was never the father of his current wife. That's just a lie.)
