In what will continue to be, at least until he dons pinstripes and starts campaigning for Cotton Eye Joe for City Council, a source of sports-related political embarrassment), Curt Schilling has just spent time out on the trail telling us all how John McCain reminds us of his Red Sox. And how Barack Obama is "more of a Derek Jeter than an A-Rod". I am still trying to figure out what this means – Barack is a bigger winner? He can't go to his left (as if!)? He's hooking up with a Minka and not Madonna? Is he really trying to dissuade us from supporting the Big O?
Stuff a (Bloody) Sock in it
Anyhow, Curt can vote for anyone he wants, as we all surely should – we begrudge nobody their choice, however much we disagree with it. So tomorrow we're hitting the road and heading to Pennsylvania in support of our chosen candidate — we're no bandwagon jumpers by saying that we're proud to be on Jimmy Rollins' team for this one.
Get out and vote.
