George Weigel has an interesting little observation at NRO on the recent instances of Barack Obama getting involved in various contests:
Copenhagen (2), Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusetts . . .. . . and now Kentucky:
1) Tuesday morning: Undefeated Kentucky is #1 in NCAA men's hoops.
2) Later Tuesday: President Obama calls Calipari, schmoozes super-freshman John Wall, and thanks team for Haiti relief fundraising.
3) Tuesday night: Kentucky loses to unranked South Carolina for first loss.Memo to Saints and Colts: Decline all phone calls from White House switchboard.
I hope Obama campaigns far and wide for the Democrats this year!
There's my two cents.
PS – I just couldn't resist…!
