Similarly, Rey Decerega –
Director of Programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute blah blah blah- is a neeervous nelly after a Thanksgiving basketball game gone wrong. During a five-on-five pickup game at Fort McNair, President Barack Obama was “inadvertently” elbowed in the upper lip by friend Decerega. The lip required twelve stitches received under anesthesia in the White House!
In the same vein of the nervous apology given by 78-year-old Cheney hunting accident victim Harry Whittington, a terrified Decerega tried to play it cool: “I learned today the president is both a tough competitor and a good sport,” he said. “I enjoyed playing basketball with him. I’m sure he’ll be back out on the court again soon.” Yeah, we’re pretty sure he peed himself while making that statement.
