    I wonder if the president really thinks that healthcare reform critics will agree to a dodgeball tournament with these?

    I hope President Obama is right in thinking healthcare reform critics will really believe that these are just dodgeballs.

    There is a line on the Butler's job description that reads "Perform Other Duties as Required". One has to wonder whatelse there is.

    Geez, ...I hope I get to be on Obama's team this time. I mean, Biden's cool and all, but there's only so much a man can do.

    With all the money going to healthcare, the White House was unable to spring for an electric pump!

    Give them just enough air. Overinflation gives them too much spring and underinflation makes them feel ba-rock.

    These need to be pumped up again? Seems like the blue dogs are sucking the air out of more than just the health care bill.
