Mr. President, Thank You For Your Inspiration!

(Welcome Sister Toldjah readers!)

"Thank you for your support, thanks for everything you do."

(Video removed on Youtube)

Kerri Walsh's shout out moments ago, alongside her partner Misty May-Treanor (married to Florida Marlins' catcher, Matt Treanor) to the sitting US President, George W. Bush. They had just won the Gold Medal match.

You could've knocked me down with a feather.

When was the last time you EVER heard George Bush mentioned by an American abroad in these positive terms?

Wow. There's nothing left to say but:




  • A classy winning team! Good on 'em!

  • I will be so glad when the Olympics are over and my sleep schedule can resume.

    I saw this and was totally surprised, too, but glad. It sort of brings the 'slap my butt' picture back full circle, no?

  • Slap my butt?
    full circle?

    Ruth Anne, you wag!

  • Kobe understands why he's there in Beijing, and what he's lucky enough to represent, as well.

    (imagine if there were a competition of actors and popular musicians, what their response would have been to a Bush visit)

  • Ruth Anne, I know you're up and watching the US Indoor Volleyball Semi versus Russia.

    Talk to me!

    (I too will be happy when I can get my regular shuteye when the Olympics are over...)

    XWL, that was great, thanks babe. :)

  • OMG, I can finally go to sleep.

    USA USA!

    No matter how many great nations we face, there is a special sizzle when we win versus Russia, don't you think?

  • Could this be the year of American volleyball?

    Two beach golds, and both men's and women's indoor teams in the finals.

  • Wouldn't it have been funny in a vindictive sort of way to play Ray Charles' 'Georgia on my Mind' when the US beat the USSR---scratch that--Russia? They wouldn't have gotten the joke until it's translated AND there's plausible deniability if any of the team members were, indeed, from Georgia [the state].

  • They cut the Bush praise on the west coast.
