Coach K Stuffs Obama

I laughed when I heard about this story from the AP this morning regarding what legendary Duke Blue Devils Mens Basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski said about Obama’s picks:

“Somebody said that we’re not in President Obama’s Final Four, and as much as I respect what he’s doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets.”

I won’t wreck on Obama for doing brackets, or picking Duke to lose relatively early, but Coach K has a point — Obama should tone it down and stay focused on important issues rather than go on ESPN for fun during this crisis (for full disclosure, Coach K likely didn’t vote for Obama).  Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t care, but these aren’t normal circumstances (and I didn’t vote for the guy either!). Think of it this way:  we weren’t that enthused about Dubya’s NASCAR picks while the bombs were dropping on Mazar-e-Sharif, were we?  Was ESPN in the White House ready to prevent George from choking on that pretzel?  I don’t believe so.

In related news, John McCain has the same Final Four as Obama.  No comment.
