A man becomes preeminent, he's expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms, enthusiasms... What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball! A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork... Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team. Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on. If his team don't field... what is he? You follow me? No one. Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? I'm goin' out there for myself. But... I get nowhere unless the team wins.
coco ebert: Yeaaah, I'm in Turkey at the moment and there's not a log of outrage. Just some butthurt from opposition politicians trying to stir up sh*t.
St_Francis_P: coco ebert: Yeaaah, I'm in Turkey at the moment and there's not a log of outrage. Just some butthurt from opposition politicians trying to stir up sh*t.This is weak sauce even by Daily News standards. They may as well start running random pictures of Obama with captions that read, "He's a bad black man!"
beantowndog: Obama killed a turkey with a baseball bat and we're just making jokes about it? Where's the outrage? President Palin would appoint turkeys to cabinet positions to avoid this sort of thing.
propasaurus: Why is this being reported as a failure of the Obama publicity team instead of a baseless faux outrage by some Turkish nut jobs with nothing better to whine about?
Will-Mun: Can someone explain to me WHY they're outraged? I mean, I get it, they're "outraged". It's just the opposing party trying to scream and yell to gain publicity. I understand it's completely a non-issue. But I would like to understand the internal logic here... What about this photo is so utterly offensive?Is it cause he has a bat?
St_Francis_P: Where'd he get that bat? Did he get it from a helpless Little League kid? A white kid, who trusted him because he's supposedly our "President"? I'm just asking questions.
St_Francis_P: Uh...I think the takeaway here is that some people are looking for an excuse to biatch.
doyner: If only you folks knew what I was holding while posting in this thread...
PC LOAD LETTER: So, NOW is Sarah Palin automatically President and Obama has to be the bathroom attendant in Congress? These rules are so confusing.
coco ebert: Log, lot, you get the point.
