Jerry Seinfeld's latest web episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee features not a comedian but a president. Seinfeld and President Obama tool around in a 1963 Corvette Stingray, though, as the Washington Post notes, Obama never leaves the White House grounds. They spend most of their time talking about what it's like to adjust to life as president, and NPR picks out this response from Obama: "Bad stuff, or stupid stuff, is happening constantly, right?" he says. "So you have to be able to just make fun of a lot of that, like: 'That was even dumber and more annoying than usual.' That's when cursing is really useful." Gawker, however, likes his answer to Seinfeld's question about how many world leaders are "completely out of their mind." Responds Obama: "A pretty sizable percentage."
