Obama Insults the Disabled on the Tonight Show?: Say It Ain't So!

I think Obama needs to think about getting a full 8 hours of sleep before going on national television. This is a Bush level verbal gaff.

Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he's gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
He bowled a 129, the president said.

"That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically.

It's "like the Special Olympics or something," the president said.

When asked about the remark, the White House said the president did not intend to offend.

I can picture Jay Leno saying "comedy is hard isn't it?" after that line meets with some steely silence.
