The New York Post has a brief item about President Obama throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star Game.

The Post noted that Obama threw lefty and didn’t have much “heat” on the ball.


However, in throwing lefty, the president reiterated that the pitch was not an endorsement of socialism.

What’s more, the president’s lack of “heat” in his pitch was intentional because he did not want to contribute to global warming.

Before the president’s toss could hit the dirt, Albert Pujols stepped up and caught the ball and Obama gave a fist pump to celebrate.

I think the president said afterwards that Pujol’s save is further evidence that the stimulus is working.
