Nos Morituri, Salutamus!

I just heard that President Bush is attending the Army-Navy game today. When asked who he hopes will win, he answered "The United States Of America."

Putting politics aside for the moment... did anyone else immediately combine the ideas of "The Imperial Presidency" and how athletes -- in particular, football players -- are called "modern gladiators" and instantly think of President Bush as a modern-day Roman Emperor, attending death matches in the Colosseum?

I can just see the referees turning to him for the final thumbs-up/thumbs down on penalties, and the half-time show being Lions Versus Cheerleaders...

Hell, it'd do wonders for the ratings. Even I'd watch that.

Cheerleaders v. cheerleaders? What channel is that on again?

I'd love to see Bush mosey about the Army-Navy game like a modern day Roman emperor clad in a toga and tiara. Red-staters would eat it up.

I thought I heard that he used a coin from Falluja - so we can mix in the idea of displaying treasure looted from vanquished provinces.
