Well, at least President Obama got the day right.

It looks like we have a textbook case of presidential brain fade.

In signing the guest book at Westminster Abbey during his state visit to Great Britain, President Obama dated his message "24 May 2008."

Now, most of us have had the experience of writing the prior year's date when writing a check? But being a whole three years off? That's a little different.

Still, it's an exhausting job being president of these 57 states. So maybe we should give him a break.
