It's a fluff piece. Yet there's something sinister in the way Jenna Lee asks if the game is "bipartisan" because she's heard that President Obama has some special abilities and wants to know if the right is going to be equally represented.

I know it sounds silly to ask if we should be politicizing a game which inserted politicians into itself, but do we have to make everything about a division of ideology?
To Moore's credit, he's one smooth dude. Nobody can deny that the President has moves on the court. Not even Fox News.
