Who would make a better President?
George W. Bush or basketball star Shaquille O'Neal?

I know it's stupid, but just curious.

2. Neither...
... both are clowns in funny shoes with a tenuous grasp of the English language and an unnaturally obsessive interest in getting a lot of money for a minimum skill level. :)

5. Sorry, one is an accomplished professional who has earned every penny
...and will be in the Hall of Fame some day based on his demonstrated talent and ability to work in a team.

The other will go down in shame in history as a failed leader of a corrupt administration.

7. On what point?
Grasp of the English language? I'd debate that one. Shaq couldn't. :)

Anyone with feet as big as his has to wear funny shoes. No argument. :)

Maximum money for minimum skill? I don't think he's ever scored a basket without traveling. Let's transport him back to 1960 and let him go one-on-one with Bill Russell with the refs of that day. :)

I'll give him this. He's not a nasty-tempered, slimy, underhanded, devious, power-hungry, warmongering pussbag like Bush. That's a point in his favor. :)

Cheers.

4. I fucking hate Shaq, and he's the most overrated player in NBA history....
....and I'd vote for him over the Chimp any time. (As long as he's not DLC)

8. Shaq - Don't like him, read this. Imagine a President who cares.

Thanks for being big-time generous. You gave $1 million to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, which inspired Bill Gates to pony up enough for 30 new clubs, which sparked AOL chairman Steve Case to provide 30,000 computers and 30,000 Internet accounts for Boys and Girls Clubs around the country. And they say one person can't make a difference.

Thanks for being small-time generous, too. You make the payments on your trainer's truck. You dress up in ridiculous costumes, Shaq-a-bunny at Easter and Shaq-a-Claus at Christmas, to take the embarrassment out of folks having to take a handout.
