If you need a hearty weekend laugh, try and get through the first two sentences of David Ignatius’s column at the Washington Post without your Friday afternoon beverage of choice coming out your nose:

President Obama looked almost relieved after Tuesday’s election blowout. A man who has been perhaps the least political president in modern U.S. history doesn’t have to worry about elections anymore.

That’s funny. Of course there’s always a slim chance the pro-Obama auto correct that comes pre-installed on many media laptops changed “most” to “least,” but that’s unlikely to have been necessary in this case.

Ignatius gave readers no time to recover from that before continuing the comedy riff at the top of the second paragraph:

Let’s take Obama at his word: Looking at foreign policy, what’s his agenda for the next two years? For a weakened president, what would amount to a good finish, and what changes should Obama make to achieve that outcome?

Or maybe let’s not.

A question for Ignatius if I may:
