Bin Laden Challenges Obama in Tape.” And since I had just seen a news story about Obama’s love of basketball and plan to put an indoor court in the White House, just for a moment I thought OBL had challenged BHO to a game of one-on-one.

This would be an interesting matchup. Obama has the skills, the experience, and a sweet shooting touch, while I don’t know if Osama has ever touched a basketball before. But Bin Laden is a big guy with a long wingspan, and say what you will about him, I imagine he’s a pretty tenacious competitor. He’s not going to be afraid to bang underneath or to give a hard foul. Add Marv Albert as announcer and you have the makings of a great pay-per-view attraction.
