Go easy on the yucks and hoops, Mr. President

President Obama is starting to take some heat from Senate Republicans and others for messing around with March Madness bracketoleogy while AIG executives are absconding with our tax dollars.

To make matters worse, he'll be on the Tonight Show tonight yucking it up with Jay Leno.

Is this really the best time to be talkin hoops and telling jokes?  The country is in a tizzy over AIG's bonuses, and it's becoming more and more apparent that the administration knew weeks ago about these payments ... and chose to do nothing.   That is, until the public went bonkers  ... and then they completely changed their tune. 

The administration completely misjudged the level of anger and frustration over these bonus payments, and they're exacerbating the problem by playing march madness and visiting Jay Leno.  For a guy who had the midas touch during the campaign, he has suffered the occasional tin year since inauguration day.
