Obama vs. McConiughey: Showdown in DC

If the Victoria Times needs anything to boost its readership, it's definitely an article on bowling. Last night, President Obama made a questionable comment on the Tonight Show saying that his bowling abilities are "like the Special Olympics." I'm not the type that gets offended over any little comment, but it probably was a little insensitive. Maybe he just figured that if the Special Olympics participants are benefiting from his "redistribution of wealth," he is allowed to belittle them. Well it turns out, Obama would get a bowling butt-whuppin' if he ever dared to step foot in a Special Olympics bowling competition. The smack talk has begun, as mentally disabled (and apparent Michigan alum...Big Ten fans insert jokes here) Kolan McConiughey has challenged our president to a bowling match. Kolan has bowled 5 300 games since 2005, which is extremely impressive for anyone, disabled or not. So I think America needs to see this showdown. Screw the prime-time press conferences about the economy, I want to see the bowling match of the century!

He has hurt many families in America. He needs to say he is sorry in the public, not to an organization.

In addition, someone who claims to have experienced prejudice and stereotypes throughout life, and has written about them in great detail, should be more sensitive and refined from life's lessons.

Furthermore, Obama claimed he was going to have the world think 'highly' of America again. Will this joke help?

For someone who spoke of equality as a creed. Does this joke match that philosophy?

For someone that said he would stand for all people. Does this stand up for those that participate in the Special Olympics?

The fact is Obama claimed a higher standard. To much is given, much is required.

Obama has just showed us that 'yes we can' destroy what a campaign stands for with a single joke.

During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ 'not-polished,' 'not-compassionate' and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them. Watch:
