Obama to win AL and NL MVP honors?

I missed this late last week, and just saw this funny as heck link thanks to a liberal friend who can’t stand Obama:

In a stunning turn of events, President Barack Obama has swept baseball’s postseason honors in both leagues, a feat never before accomplished and long considered impossible.

At a hastily scheduled press conference, Commissioner of Major League Baseball Bud Selig announced that Obama has been named Rookie of the Year, Cy Young Award Winner and Most Valuable Player in both the American and National Leagues. These honors come on the heels of Obama’s surprise selection as Rolaids Relief Man.

“In 2009, President Barack Obama was baseball,” said Selig. “From throwing out the first pitch at the 2009 All-Star Game to visiting the broadcast booth at the 2009 All-Star Game, the President’s accomplishments defined this entire historic season.”

Even those players who lost to Obama were gracious. “Did I think I was going to win the AL MVP?” asked Twins catcher Joe Mauer. “Well, I led the league in hitting, played a difficult position in the field, and guided my team to the playoffs. But that pales in comparison to the contribution President Obama has made to America’s pastime.”

“I didn’t know you could play in both leagues at the same time,” said Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols, reigning NL MVP and favorite for this year’s award. “But after Barack Obama won the Heisman Trophy last year, I knew he was capable of anything.”

LOL. Make sure to read the whole thing. It’s quite surprising to see that the liberal HuffPo can be intentionally funny when it wants to be ;)
