Obama Needs Stitches After Basketball GameElbow to the Chief | November 26, 2010

Bush (the elder) eating some bad sushi and face planting into the lap of the Japanese Prime Minister? Lame (but funny). Obama, on the other hand, needed eight stitches in his lip because he got elbowed by a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute while playing basketball. No autopsy, no foul, right, Mr. President?
