There's a new batch of official photos up on the White House Flickr page, and it includes this damning piece of evidence that Lance Berkman -- former Rice Owl, former Houston Astro, current proud church dude and proud Republican -- is pals with the Obamas.
You know who else pals around with the Obamas? Terrorists, according to Sarah Palin. Therefore, Lance Berkman is a terrorist.
Berkman defenders will no doubt argue he was there to celebrate the St. Louis Cardinals' World Series championship, but since we've thankfully blocked that from our minds, the argument won't hold water.
Lance Berkman: Obama pal, terrorist. We're glad the Astros got rid of him.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
