The State of the Unicorn - O-6bama the Great Black Hope

Obama is the like a great farm team player being promoted to the majors.  All the scouts (the MSM) raved about his long ball and opposing pitchers (Clinton, McCain) refused to challenge him.  Now we are late in the game (his first year) and there is no pitching around him. 

So what happens ? 

He steps up to the plate twice (Virginia and New Jersey) and strikes out in 3 pitches.  

Just a couple bad at bats all the pundits proclaim. 

In the field at the bottom half of the inning 2 simple ground balls (Copenhagen x 2) bounce thru his legs for errors. 

Those balls must have hit a rock proclaim the pundits.

Now later in the game with the bases loaded and 2 outs Obama again steps up to the plate (State of the Union/Unicorn).  Everyone just knows Obama will choke up on the bat and punch a single thru the infield to score the winning runs.  Everybody is certain because Obama is such a smart player and he got smoked the last two times up on three straight pitches.

So what does this brilliant player do ?  He must have learned a lesson from his last at bat ?

Three pitches later and three flailing swings later Obama strikes out badly chasing three balls in the dirt.

Gee, maybe those original scouts (the MSM) saw Obama hit some dying quail singles in the minors and thought they saw line drives.  Maybe his fly outs were always against the wind and the scouts were sure he's hit them out of the park in the majors.

All I see is that he is big talking (I've got game) rookie who chokes EVERY SINGLE TIME the pressure has been on him in the majors.  His excuses are all valid reasons for a player not to perform except that no other player has ever had ALL of those things go wrong at the same time in the history of the game. 

It appears he may have gotten his Rookie of the Year picture taken even before the season began and now he'll lucky to finish the season as a starter.
