Or rather, Texas — in the form of local reporter Brad Watson — messes with him. Here’s the obligatory clip for the benefit of the three readers who haven’t already seen it today on Drudge or at the Blaze. Most of the media buzz is devoted to O’s peevish parting shot about letting him finish, but the exchange about the Space Shuttle is what had me guffawing. Watch as the atmosphere in the room transforms before your very eyes. Ah well — you know how cranky old people can be.

Considering how Trump sailed to the top of the polls based on confrontationalism towards Obama and little else, I assume Watson’s now our frontrunner for vice president. Exit question: If The One’s written off Texas, why did he bother giving an interview to a local station?
