This came to me as a powerpoint, but it's too rich not to pass on. 

Bush Pitch
1.2-Seam Fastball. 
Will cut down-and away.  The
typical strikeout pitch.
2.Power-T position before the throw.  Generates hip drive for maximum velocity.
3.Eyes on the target.
4.Pitching hand cocked back so batter can’t see the ball
during delivery.
5.Business slacks. 
He
ain’t here to play, he's gonna break the catchers hand.

ASSESMENT

Strike three – batter
looking.  Fastball looked inside coming
towards plate then broke away on the inside corner.


Obama pitch


1.Palm ball.  Comes
in slow and doesn't move. 
2.No Power-T.  Right
hand hanging limply in front of his torso.
3.Eyes and mouth show fear that a batter will actually be
in there to knock it 603 feet…
4.Pitching hand open so batter can see ball during
delivery. 
5.Blue jeans?  When
they asked him to throw out the first pitch he wrote a speech.

ASSESMENT

This ball will be hit
so far it will need a flight attendant.

Okay, now look at this: 


Bush Pitch

And then this: 

NY Pitch

Uh, and now look at the president. 


Obama pitch  Detroit pitch

I don't know who took these photos, but I give them the credit.  I didn't write this either, but I wish I had.
