Barack Obama has run a largely gaffe-free campaign. Until he picked up a bowling ball. While attempting to woo blue collar voters in Pennsylvania, the Democratic frontrunner bowled a 37, while rolling several balls into the gutter.
His disastrous performance has earned him widespread ridicule. As MSNBC's Joe Scarborough put it, "He bowls like my four-and-a-half-year-old daughter."
The late-night comedians have been no less forgiving:
"His score was 37. Out of a possible 300, he bowled 37. Of course, being a Democrat, he automatically demanded a recount, so they had to go back." --Jay Leno
"I bowled a 37 when I was a baby. And I was drunk, by the way." --Jimmy Kimmel
"Afterwards, Obama told reporters, 'That's it, no more white guy sports for me. That's it.' He canceled his weekend at Hockey Camp." --Conan O'Brien
Jon Stewart imagines a scenario in which Barack Obama's poor bowling skills could endanger national security.

Speaking of sports follies, President Bush was roundly booed this week when he threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals home opener. Booing aside, as Jay Leno noted, "It was nice to see Bush throwing out something other than the Constitution."
