That Fox video that has been making the rounds doesn’t show the result of Obama’s nancyboy whiff at the All Star Game, last night.
Young Nick from The West Coast Outpost found a better clip, and juxtaposed it with President Bush’s masterful first pitch at the 2001 World Series:
Nick’s Obama FailBlog submission is here.
I also hear that Obama, who claims to be a longtime White Sox fan mispronounced, Comiskey Park, which it goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: Bush would have been pummeled relentlessly if he had done that. And if he had done that, it wouldn’t have been after claiming he was a “longtime fan”, because a longtime fan would know how to pronounce the name of the park. That’s something I would do, (mispronounce the name) but guess what? I ain’t a White Sox fan.
And another avowed longtime baseball fan who really isn’t?:
Judge Sotomayor, in her testimony yesterday, asserted that “Few judges could claim they love baseball more than I do” and that she “grew up … watching baseball.” But a March 28, 1995, story in USA Today, titled “U.S. District judge not a baseball fan,” stated that Sotomayor “grew up a few miles from Yankee Stadium but says she knows little about the sport.” And yesterday she said that “many residents of Washington, D.C. have asked me to look at the Senators” as her new team. But as even a casual baseball fan would know, the D.C. team is the Nationals, not the Senators.
Sure, she’s been B.S-ing her way through her hearings, but who expected a totally unnecessary whopper about baseball? I guess once you’re knee deep in the bull, it’s hard to wade out of it…
