[Sox fan Obama pals around with NL Central terror, the Cards’ Albert Pujols “ could there be a more politically poisonous combo of teams?]

I haven’t had much time to cover the Cubs’ .500 first half of late much less the NL Central, but as Keith Olbermann would say, Events Insist. If you’ve read about President Obama’s dwindling popularity, on the verge of passing much needed healthcare reform thru Congress, the explanation is right here:  a very public embrace of St. Louis’ Albert Pujols. If you thought Obama’s knowing Weatherman Underground member Bill Ayers was overblown political season hyperbole, there’s nothing Team Obama can do to deny this picture.
