Because we had some server issues this weekend, I didn’t get to post an Obamicon every day. To make up the Obamicon deficit, today and tomorrow we’re going to double up.
This afternoon’s Obamicon features Roger Clemens, whose name was mentioned 82 times in the Mitchell Report. His trainer, Brian McNamee, claims that during the 1998, 2000, and 2001 baseball seasons, he injected Clemens with Winstrol (the same drug they caught Ben Johnson using at the 1988 Summer Olympics).
In April 2008, the New York Daily News reported on a long-term relationship between Clemens and country music star Mindy McCready that began when she was 15 years old. For what it’s worth, McCready says the relationship actually began when she was 16, but they didn’t start doing it until years later.
Look, we all knew Clemens was a dick who didn’t like to carry his own bags, insisted on special treatment and couldn’t retire often enough. But for all his faults, he was always a tireless advocate of two things: hard work and family. What a fraud.
