Why Obama's Bowling Would've Lost Dr. King's Support


This is a joke, right? And a stupid, racist one too!


As one who wrote about the Obama's less than perfect bowling technique, I was amazed at those who tried to treat these accounts as some sort of dark metaphor for ... well, what? The man is clearly a jock; it just so happens that basketball not ten pins is his game. I wrote about it as one of many theater of the absurd moments on the trail. If the candidate takes it in good humor, which he most certainly did, it's just a fun moment, a brief light shining on the essential absurdity of the whole enterprise of campaigning for president.

Anyway, this send-up was amusing.
