Add one teaspoon of condescension:
That's right boys, and girls. She said that Curt Schilling was a Yankee fan. And that closed the curtain on her bid for the U.S. Senate.
...a few shots at Curt Schilling:
Most recently Schilling has mixed sports and politics in Boston. A dedicated Republican, never shy about giving his opinion, the big Blowhard actually considered running for Kennedy's seat in the early weeks after the congressional lion passed away. Ever the glory hound, he announced he wasn't running on HBO's Joe Buck Live....throw in a few misspellings:
...Celtics owner Steve Pagliacu (should be Pagliuca)......add overstatement that could easily get past a chin-stroking, head-nodding Boston Globe editor:
...Fred Smerles (should be Smerlas)...
Oh, and then there's this fellow named Tom Brady.And we have what resembles your standard Globe product.
Brady has it all. He's got the looks, the charisma, the fame and he's remained politically neutral on just about everything. He got into a little hot water when he accepted an invitation to one of George Bush's State of the Union addresses, but has otherwise steered clear of polarizing issues.
Question for Shank: are Republican presidents the only kind of president whose issues are polarizing?
