You’ve Got the Magic Touch

Obama’s losing streak continues. And now he’s taking down college basketball teams with him. Yesterday, Obama phoned John Calipari, coach of the then-undefeated, top-ranked men’s basketball program at Kentucky. He counseled Kentucky’s players — only recently elevated to college basketball’s number-one spot — not to lose their focus. It seems he had the same effect on them that he had on Martha Coakley and Jon Corzine. Kentucky went out last night and lost to unheralded and unranked South Carolina (who came into the game at 11–8). At this point, the New Orleans Saints should refuse his endorsement.
