Would You Vote For This Guy?

[Prof Disclaimer – I generally don’t talk politics, but I will make an exception in this case.]

Sunday Night Baseball - January 17, 2014Yesterday, we learned that former pitching great, disgraced video game studio owner, and all around Twitter and Facebook loudmouth Curt Schilling is entertaining a leap into politics. After being fired from ESPN, perhaps he thinks this is the next step into public life.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Schilling broke the news in the comment thread of one of his own Facebook posts:

“I am going to run, soon,” Schilling wrote back.

When asked for details, Schilling replied, “state office first, white house in 8 years :)”

And then he added: “or 4 if by some amazing illegal event this country elects another clinton.”

Ol’ number 38 still makes his home in Massachusetts, where he could probably win a state representative seat just on the strength of his bloody sock alone. Now, keeping a seat after rubber stamping every disastrous budget cut or outrageous attack on one’s civil rights? Probably not.

Schilling is a longtime, hardline Republican supporter and very popular in the ultra-conservative, Tea Party circle. In today’s political climate, he might get a lot of voters. Remember those halcyon days when we thought that a Donald Trump candidacy was a total joke?

Would every political ad actually be a recycled, poorly Photoshopped meme? Would his slogan be “a bloody Sox in every bean pot”? Or perhaps “I’ll be America’s Closer”?

One thing is certain – Schill would probably lose the F.I. vote.

    • Yeah and maybe all he’d have to do is be a little less dumb than Trump, like not trashing gold star parents, publicly flirting with treason by asking the KGB to subvert our election, questioning why the use of nuclear weapons is a bad thing, and today inferring that gun owners might want to consider shooting Hillary to protect the 2nd amendment.

      We can be thankful that there appears to be only about a 20% chance that starting next January we will have to fear for the lives of our children and grandchildren but next time maybe we’re not so lucky.


  1. Donald Chump is still a total joke, but we’ve all heard stupid people tell stupid jokes. There’s a lot of ’em out there. For example, the one about the bear and the rabbit..


  2. As long as he doesn’t trend south into Rhode Island. I have inlaws there. After his business dealings, they could whip up a lynch mob there very quickly.
