The opening salvo in the Most Important H-O-R-S-E Game of All Time was fired a few hours ago by Barack Obama. Obama, meeting with troops in Kuwait, launched a deep-but-not-quite-three-point-shot from the right side and drained it. MSNBC has the video to prove it:
While some might argue that the contest is unfair because Obama is an avid basketball player — going so far as to emulate Vlade Divac’s workout routine — the counter-argument is that John McCain has more experience with the sport since he was alive when it was first invented!
In any case, it’s your shot, McCain.
Note: In the interest of fair-and-balanced reporting, we present the infamous video of one of Obama’s lesser athletic achievements after the jump.
