Obasketball


If you want to be President, you’ve got to have a mean jump shot:

(H/T Marc Ambinder).

Of course, it’s not beating the point guard of the Bobcats at HORSE, but it’s something. Just one question: what would CNN be saying if he missed? I can almost see it now: “This is a HUGE gaffe by Obama, thinking that he can play, when he can’t even make an open three. Very damaging… Why is he distracting voters from the issues?”

YouTube also has old school Obamastketball/Obamaball/Obasketball for your viewing pleasure.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
