I thought I mentioned it here but couldn’t find it. A long time ago, when John Ashcroft was governor of Missouri, he played in a benefit basketball game. I think is was The Governor’s Office vs. The Media.

I somehow wound up on the media team. I don’t fault Mr. Ashcroft for ringer-ing himself with a bunch of gigantic state troopers but this photo of W reminded me what a mean and dirty brand of ball the governor played. Anyone that’s played much pick-up ball knows this type of player. First to swing an elbow…first to scream foul…and incredulous if anyone dared call him on a foul.

The photo of Bush makes me wonder how often he got his ass kicked as a kid.
