I have, like, no earthly idea what you’re talking about

Y’all seen this, right?

Q. Mr. President, music is one of our largest exports the country has. Currently, every country in the world — except China, Iran, North Korea, Rwanda and the United States — pay a statutory royalty to the performing artists for radio and television air play. Would your administration consider changing our laws to align it with the rest of the world?

THE PRESIDENT: Help. (Laughter.) Maybe you’ve never had a President say this — I have, like, no earthly idea what you’re talking about. (Laughter and applause.) Sounds like we’re keeping interesting company, you know? (Laughter.)

Look, I’ll give you the old classic: contact my office, will you? (Laughter.) I really don’t — I’m totally out of my lane. I like listening to country music, if that helps. (Laughter.)

Sheesh. (Hat tip – hypebot.)

Update, 13/8/07: Hey, and now there’s a video! (Thanks Daniel)

  1. *groans* If the cunt doesn’t blow up the world by January 20, 2009 (when he’s finally kicked to the curb–thank YOU Constitution) you can’t imagine what a relief it will be for a good chunk of us Americans to not only not have to bear the brunt of his appalling Administration’s policies anymore but that, no matter *who* the next President is, the English language, the beautiful expressive English language, won’t have to suffer the same fate as Iraq in this vile man’s hands. Erm, throat? Larynx?
