Nixon's Nightmare Was Brought To Life At The White House Today

The world champion San Francisco Giants, accompanied by Willie Mays, visited the White House today, in all their scraggly, bearded glory. President Obama made jokes about Brian Wilson's beard ("I do fear it"), his attire ("Now underneath Brian's beard, and the spandex tuxedo, and the sea captain costume, and the cleats with his face on them is also one of the most dominant closers in baseball"), and Tim Lincecum's frame ("America learned it's sometimes good to bet on the skinny guy").

And then it was time to go talk about other things.
