And Hadley Reminds Me of Jeter

Likewise, there are differing accounts of where "Scooter" comes from. He told the New York Times in 2002 that his father, an investment banker now deceased, coined it upon seeing him crawl across his crib. The same year, in an interview with King, Libby spoke of a childhood comparison to New York Yankees Hall of Fame shortstop Phil "Scooter" Rizzuto ("I had the range but not the arm," Libby said).

How a propos. (Potentially) criminal right wing politicos and comparisons of them to beloved Yankees never cease to surprise (or entertain!).

  • It’s the “criminal” part we love about the Yankee comparisons, Nick, not just the “right wing” part.

  • I thought both were one and the same.
