ESPN whacks GWB
I got pointed to this story on ESPN's web site, concerning Bush's dealings regarding the Texas Rangers' stadium and associated hypocrisy.  I don't normally pay any attention to sports web sites, but I find it surprising to see one running an openly political and only somewhat sports related story, and I find it even more surprising to see a major corporation's web site running something so critical of Bush.  Is this more normal than I think, with my tiny knowledge of sports web sites in general and ESPN's in particular?  If it is unusual, is it just an aberration, or is it a sign that Bush's image is finally getting tarnished in the eyes of the unwashed masses?

Interesting. Although the original byline date is "November 9". I wonder of what year.

Bush was always a bit of a joke in baseball circles, so I don't think it really reflects on his presidency one way or another.

Based on context, I'd guess November 9th, 1999 is the actual date for that story, since it predates Bush's election as President, but he's known to be running.
