Robert Gibbs’ Least Shocking Statement of the Week: Obama’s a Lefty

Robert Gibbs:

“’I think President Obama would hold his own. I’ve seen him shoot the ball — he’s a lefty, too. You know, pretty much all lefties can shoot.’”

True. Noam Chomsky has a hell of a top-of-the-key jumper, and I heard that Karl Marx once sank a 19-foot buzzer-beater from the baseline to give the Bourgeoisie Bengals a last-second win over the Proletariet Penguins.

Gibbs’ comment was of course in reference to a question about the possibility of Obama playing hoops with LeBron James. Finally, a question Gibbs didn’t have to dodge.

A game with James is the least Obama can do to repay LeBron’s generous gift to the Democrat White House Victory Fund in 2008. Watch out, Mr. President; LeBron’s a lefty too!
