Hoop, there it is

There's a stench of hypocrisy in the air, and it's coming from loudmouth conservative pundits who are criticizing President Barack Obama for filling out his NCAA basketball bracket on national TV amid the earthquake/tsunami/meltdown disaster in Japan.

Why hypocrisy? Because I never heard a peep of criticism out of these same people when President George W. Bush spent a total of more than 300 days vacationing away from the White House — at Camp David or his ranch in Texas — during his eight years as president.
