Special Olympics bowler: I can beat the president!

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The top bowler for the Special Olympics looks forward to meeting President Barack Obama in an alley.
"He bowled a 129. I bowl a 300. I could beat that score easily," Michigan's Kolan McConiughey (KO-lahn Mc-KAHNA-he) told The Associated Press in an interview Friday.

The athletic-minded president made an offhand remark Thursday on "The Tonight Show" comparing his weak bowling to "the Special Olympics or something." He quickly apologized and told the Special Olympics chairman he wants to have some of its athletes visit the White House to bowl or play basketball.

McConiughey, who is mentally disabled, is just the bowler for the job. He's bowled five perfect games since 2005.

The 35-year-old McConiughey has been bowling since he was 8 or 9. His advice for Obama? Practice every day.


Maybe if Kolan does get to go to the White House for Obama's photo-op, oops, "meeting" with the Special Olympians, he can teach the President a little class while he teaches him to bowl.

To my liberal friends, I promise this is the last one. It was just too easy and I'm lazy.

Keep at the asshole Chuck, cos you know the MSM won't mind throwing anyone under the bus for their boy.

We have a similar buffoon down under and he's been squandering the nation's wealth for more than a year with buggerall to show for it and still the media won't ask any questions. It'll be far worse for you folks.

mksviews -- is that the same buffoon that took away your guns over there? I'm curious what people's mood is about that decision.

Where did you find Kolan? Obama's gaffe is getting really embarrassing. He managed to insult a Special Olympics champion by describing himself as one of their peers. Seems Obama isn't even in their league.

Brother... isn't that frightening?

MK, it is disheartening but oddly comforting to know that not all of the idiots are here in the US

PF, agreed

SAl, Kolan was postedd on Drudge, he is evidently from here in Michigan.

AP, funny

Incidently, my wife and I attended the Special Olympics, it's sponsored by Spartan foods based her in West Michigan. It was a good time. The atheletes had a blast.

He should practice his bowling daily. If he's in the bowling alley he's not coming up with dumb ideas.

President Obama better get some sensitivity training before Kolan kicks his @$$.
