After the Triumph of "The View," President Obama Joins Bill Alexander Painting Holiday Mountain on PBS

What did the president know about Snooki and when did he know it?

That was the headline out of President Obama's appearance on "The View" Thursday morning when he flubbed a little pop-culture quiz posed by the hosts.

"Do you know that Lindsay Lohan is in jail?" asked Joy Behar. "I actually knew that," POTUS responded.

"Does Mel Gibson need anger management?" Obama hemmed and hawed. "Uhhh... Let me answer the Afghanistan question!... I haven't seen a Mel Gibson movie in a while."

Joy Behar went in for the kill: "Should Snooki run as mayor of Wasilla?"

"I got to admit," Obama said, "I don't know who Snooki is."

Oh, reeeaaalllly? Because not three months ago, at the White House Correspondent's Association Dinner, he seemed to know all about the stars of "Jersey Shore," when he joked that "the following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax... Snooki,. . ." Hope and Change! Wait for another UnPrecedented Appearance by the First Playah on PBS! Bill Alexander and the Mighty Brush!
