If this was George W. Bush ...

... I wonder how dolt Graham Watson would spin this:

MVSU guard Kevin Burwell taunts President Obama and ultimately regrets it.

Mississippi Valley State guard Kevin Burwell learned a hard lesson Tuesday night that taunting the leader of the free world brings nothing but trouble.

Early in the second half of the Devils' "first four" game against Western Kentucky, Burwell dribbled to the corner where President Barack Obama and his guest, British Prime Minister David Cameron, were taking in the game and jacked up a 3-pointer. When the shot found the bottom of the net, Burwell turned to the president and taunted him.

Not a smart move with Secret Service hovering, but Burwell was responding to Obama's halftime comment that both teams were "shooting terribly." To Obama's credit, the two teams had combined to shoot 24 percent for the first half.

Not saying the president had anything to do with this cosmic karma, but you have to wonder. He is, after all, the most powerful man in the world.

Please. This is taunting? Sheesh.

But let's play that ever-fun game of imagining George Bush still being president. How would Watson have worded his article then?

"Burwell taunts the president like his black-ops guys did to prisoners at Abu Ghraib."

"Burwell mimics an anti-war protestor in getting is Dubya's face!"

"Burwell, maybe furious at Bush's trashing of our Constitution, stares down the president after making long-range jumper."

Etc.
