Thune makes GOP Dream Team!

In basketball, at least.

The New York Times unveils Washington's Dream Republican team of hoopsters, complete with scouting reports.

South Dakota Senator John Thune:

Top player in Senate gym. Shoots free throws as well as he rebounds.

Nevada Senator John Ensign:

Killer 3-pointer from NBA range.

Arizona Rep. Jeff Flake:

Leading House player. Star of GOP teams.

Illinois Rep. John Shimkus:

Honed skills at West Point. Coaches at Holy Cross Lutheran Church and School.

Tennessee Rep. Zach Wamp:

Aggressive on defense.

(note: I heard Strom Thurmond threw in the towel and retired a few years ago.)
