Presidential perk turned into a bummer

(Continued)

As president, I wouldn’t have any trouble telling Putin to keep his shirt on, or banging heads together to get my agenda passed by Congress.

But if the job means I would have to leave the Baseball Hall of Fame in the middle of Abbott and Costello’s classic “Who’s On First” routine because there might be a crisis somewhere in the Balkans, forget about it.

I don’t want to be president.
