In the latest round of NBA draft picks the Chicago Bulls signed Barak Obama to a five year multimillion dollar contract. With the exception of his high IQ, he met all the criteria for player eligibility - tall, black, and lanky.
He was chosen above many more qualified players because Bull's General Manager simply feared for his life. For Obama, the pick was his reward for eight long years of training night and day on the basketball court in the basement of the White House.
Nevertheless the rookie point guard will be benched for the duration of his five year stint.
