Since we cannot watch the pregame, here is the Obama lineup:
CF – Poor Union Worker
2B – People with no Food in Their Refrigerator
LF – 64 Prescription Drugs a day Wal-Mart Worker
1B – Swing State Governors
3B – Tax Cuts for $250,000… oops, I mean $200,000 and under
SS – Joltin’ Joe Biden
C – Los Angels Times
RF – Kansas Values (obtained growing up in Indonesia and Hawaii)
DH/ P – Karl Marx
Off the bench (literally) – Ohio ACORN voters
In the bullpen warming up: Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid.
The US press has repeatedly rehearsed Mr Obama’s extraordinary odyssey, but the other side of the family’s American experience has only been revealed in parts. Just across town from where Mr Obama made history as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, some of his closest blood relatives have confronted the harshness of immigrant life in America.
They would know, right?!
