Do you guys get out, like, at all?

Cartoon by Nick Anderson, Houston Chronicle

Look, if you’re the NCAA and you’re trying to defend a football championship system that uses a combination of computer polls with unknown formulas and weightings and coaches and others who may or may not actually have seen most of the teams they’re ranking to bring us “National Championship” games that are often as lopsided as the matchups are incomprehensible, I can see why you’d want to hire someone to burnish your image.

But did anyone there think that, if your critics see you as insular, arrogant, and out of touch with the realities of the world around them. that maybe hiring a soulless George W. Bush flack isn’t the best remedy?

On the other hand, Dennis Dodd thinks Fleisher will soon long for the days of spinning “Mission Accomplished.”
