    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Basketball with brains 

    Dan Quayle - vice president under Bush 41, the first President Bush - famously messed up the United Negro College Fund motto, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste."

    But the creators of a Web game seem to think Bush 43, aka Dubya, is the one a few synapses short of good brain function. In their Give Bush a Brain Game, "the object of the game is to try and drop a brain into the empty head of George W. Bush."

    Players have 10 tries to get a brain into the moving target before it splats. If you make a basket, Bushie recites one of his better-known flubs. A low score gets you a snarky comment such as "Dubya looks like Einstein next to you."

    For the record, Quayle's malapropism: "What a waste it is to lose one's mind, or not to have a mind is being very wasteful. How true that is."
