A Bowling Challenge To President Obama

Last night, President Barack Obama appeared on Jay Leno's Tonight Show and proceeded to open his mouth and insert his foot. He said:
Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.

He bowled a 129, the president said.

“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.

It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.
That just oozes class, President Obama.

Today comes word that Kolan McConiughey has challenged Obama to a bowling tournament. Kolan has an average of 266. He has three perfect games to his credit.

Did I mention that he's also a Special Olympian.

I look forward to seeing how Obama plays this one, given that he's in a no-win situation. Kolan will likely get himself a trip to the White House, but this is all a sideshow when there's real work to be done by the White House.

And that wasn't even the dumbest thing Obama said in his appearance. He believed that Tim Geithner was doing a good job.

Keep in mind that Obama had plenty of time to appear on Jay Leno and fill out his NCAA tournament brackets, but apparently didn't find the time to make sure that his Administration complied with TARP oversight laws. It's all about the priorities.

Of course, today Obama is looking to top yesterday's stupidity with a video love note to the Iranian government, which continues its nuclear weapons program and which sponsored the Syrian nuclear program that Israel destroyed in an airstrike:
