"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

India Removes Coconuts to Keep Obama Safe

India has embarked upon a campaign to save Obama from the embarrassment of coconut induced head injury. Well, I know I feel better.

"While President Obama may have taken one on the jaw in Tuesday’s elections, officials in India are seeing to it he doesn’t take one on the head during his upcoming visit.

"City officials in Mumbai have ordered the removal of all the coconuts from the trees around a museum dedicated to Gandhi for fear one could come loose and fall on the President’s head.

"'We told the authorities to remove the dry coconuts from trees near the building,' Meghshyam Ajgaonkar, executive secretary of the museum, told the BBC. 'Why take a chance?'

"'They were ripe and they were falling on the road, so we requested our local office to remove them - it was part of a regular clean-up,' he said.

"Ajgaonkar acknowledged that the timing of the coconut round up was affected by Obama's visit, The Wall Street Journal reported.

"Every year, people are injured and even killed in India by falling coconuts."

Alright, now no one should take the following comment as wishing harm on Obama or something, but would it not be one the weirdest things in the world for a president (any president) to be killed by a falling coconut in India? Can you even imagine the conspiracy theories?
