Washington politicians perfect fit for comedy skit

I was thinking of the classic comedy routine of Abbott and Costello, "Who's On First," the other day and thought it would be apropos to plug in some names of our current administration: Joe Biden, first base (Who); second base, Jack Lew (What); third base, Harry Reid (Why); shortstop, Nancy Pelosi (I don't know); left field, Kathleen Sebelius (I don't care); center field, Jay Carney (Because) and pitcher, Chris Van Hollen (Tomorrow). The manager? Why, Barack Obama, of course. Who better to direct a band of inept misfits than the chief misfit himself?
