    President Obama Has No Idea What Year It Is

    This is how President Obama signed the guestbook at Westminster Abbey earlier today, where he got a tour from the Very Reverend Dr. John Hall and laid a wreath on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.

    It is a great privilege to commemorate our common heritage, and common sacrifice.

    24 May 2008

    It was really nice until he got the date wrong by three years. Granted, 2008 was a great year for him, and we might try to live it for as long as possible, too, if we were him. Also, though, he may have had a stroke.

    I reckon he had more than just one Guiness. Breakfast of champions.

    And why can't he just write it like a normal human being. May 24, 2008

    24 May 2008 is how I'd do it. I think that's a pretty standard format across the government.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Yeah. You know, funny things is, most of us picked up the habit of 24 May, 11 in the service, and I know damned good and well he didn't pick it up in the service. Kinda strange for a civilian.

    I do it, but my parents and much of my family are from former British Colonies, where that's the standard way of marking dates.

    Don't know what his excuse is.

    So in the service, you're taught to use the more common/international date system?
    I always wondered why my grandpa had put a date on a photograph as "22 April 1945" even though he was an American. Makes me question some of his other photo dates, like one that's "8-5-73". Makes me wonder if it's August 5th, or May 8th, 1973.
