Forget the business scandals, the potential nuclear holocaust in the Middle East, war on Iraq...but this is OUTRAGEOUS!
Can Bush get any more disgraceful? What with being a former Harken CEO (hello?) and now being a former owner of a baseball team (hello??!), Bush couldn't be in a worse place to comment on the baseball strike.

"Relations between Bush and baseball commissioner Bud Selig are not warm. Bush wanted to be commissioner before he ran for governor of Texas; Selig repeatedly said he wouldn't stand in Bush's way, then blocked him because he wanted the job for himself."
Another example of baseball and history overlapping. Would Commissioner Bush have meant President Gore? Or what if the Dodgers had signed that skinny Cuban pitcher named Fidel way back when?
