Not to dwell too much on politics, but the first two notes by Al Kamen on George W. Bush's knowledge of sports vs. current events are pretty telling. In the first note, Tony Tavarez (the president of the Nats) calls Bush's baseball knowledge "astounding". Bush also seems to know a lot about high school football. In the second note, Bush admits not having heard about the new (White House-approved) rule requiring passports to return from Mexico or Canada until it was reported in the papers.
So there you have it. The President of the United States apparently spends more time watching baseball and less time working than even me. Except, you know, the fate of the world doesn't rest on me doing my job.
(It's 8am here in Los Angeles. The Sox are about to start a baseball game. Weird.)
