The Official Games of the 43rd U.S. Presidency -- (with apologies to the Olympic judo competition)

Most of the events I have covered so far have been fairly traditional. Today, however, I highlight a sport that has only recently entered the spotlight. As the NY Times reports today, the world championship in this event is coming up in New York City in two weeks, with the toughest competitors expected to come from our very own Justice Department.

The Official Games of the 43rd U.S. Presidency -- (with apologies to the Olympic shooting competition)

Here's our latest Olympic-inspired Presidential Games icon. It raises the possibility that the siege mentality that grips the country is as much a product of the Bush administration as anything else.

It sounds like the media is (finally) catching on to the idea. Besides the recent front page article in the Washington Post admitting they gave Bush a free pass on the war, Mickey Kaus had a piece this morning on "Day To Day" suggesting that Bush is wearing people out, and that a vote for Kerry is becoming a vote for ending perpetual war.

The Official Games of the 43rd U.S. Presidency -- (with apologies to the Olympic badminton competition)

The games begin tonight, but (as usual) BAGnews has had a couple days head start. For today's featured event, we focus on those scandalous dopes in the administration and their false start with Medicare reform.

The Official Games of the 43rd U.S. Presidency -- (with apologies to the Olympic Basketball competition)

It's clear the administration has been having a ball rewriting the rules of governance while making a game out of the constitution. In honor of their sporting ways, we will be adapting the official pictograms of various events throughout the Athens Games to commemorate the highlights (or, better yet, "lowlights") of team Bush's presidential exercise.
