Scott Brown Shot One-For-Five? Hey – So Did Barack Obama!

The Boston Globe’s Glen Johnson had this scoop on the celebrated half-court basketball swish by Sen. Scott Brown (R-It’s Not Girly To Shoot Underhand):

Brown’s ‘amazing’ basket came after four missed shots

Sinking a half-court shot is the latest testament to “Downtown Scotty Brown’s’’ basketball prowess, but it turns out it wasn’t quite the lucky basket it appeared to be.

An aide confirmed for the Globe Thursday that Brown sunk the shot, but on the fifth attempt.

The shot heard ’round the Web:


But before you pass judgment on Brown, consider this:

Barack Obama did exactly the same thing.

Braack Obama: One-for-five.

Scott Brown: One-for-five.

What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

    Obama wasn’t shootin’ no half-court shot. More like from the three-point arc.

    I’ve been Rickrolled.
