Mission Accomplished

Bush the Lesser gets hammered regularly for his failings, so I think it is only fair to credit him when he executes the duties of his office successfully. Yesterday, he honored the 2007 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox with a visit to the White House. Yes, it’s not an official presidential duty, one spelled out in the Constitution. But it’s a traditional duty, one that does hold meaning, and besides, the Constitution isn’t exactly Bush the Lesser’s strong point anyway.

At right you see the president looking up at David Ortiz, holding the World Series trophy, while Daisuke Matsuzaka looks on. You know what’s unusual about this picture? Here we have Bush the Lesser hanging out with two foreign nationals, and all of them are genuinely happy about it.

Congratulations again to the Red Sox!

This time of year is a busy one for me. High school seniors are waiting to hear back about their college applications. College seniors are sending out resumes or waiting to hear from law/medical/graduate schools. Academic job searches are in full swing. Baseball players are trying to win jobs in spring training. And then there’s tax season. Some people, in these stressful times, turn to prayer. Others, well, they try different things...

All that is a way of saying I may not have as much time to spend here in the blogworld over the next several weeks. But don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere. And I will still answer your questions and keep tabs on how Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama fare versus each other and John Sidney McCain III.

interesting to think what other tactics people might turn to instead of prayer :)

You're known to engage in competitive sports yourself.

You mean this? (Your link didn't work for me.)

If you look closely you'll see that he cheated. He played left-handed. Not that I object, of course, just pointing it out.

Can't win 'em all. Still worth trying.

You lost to a Muppet.

Bush loves baseball. If only they had let him be Baseball Commissioner back when he wanted that job, we wouldn't have been stuck with him as President.

Mauigirl - Interesting. I'm not a big fan of Bud Selig, but maybe that's two things he's done right for baseball. (The other being centralizing all internet revenue and then developing it competently, which has done more to far reduce revenue disparity than years of hand-wringing and trashing the game.) Then again, baseball has always been better than the men who run it, and has been run by far worse than Bush the Lesser. I am not confident that the first statement is true of the United States.
