Please God NO!

Curt SchillingIn an interview with NECN today Curt Schilling told Brad Puffer that he is considering running for the open Senate seat vacated by the death of Ted Kennedy. Schilling since his retirement has settled permanently in the Massachusetts area and is working with his video game company to create a new challenger to World of Warcraft. The big lug, a master on the mound,┬áis never short of opinions which I guess, in his mind, makes him qualified for the seat. Considering that Kentucky sent Hall of Famer Jim Bunning to the exclusive club, Schill must feel like it’d be no problem for him to try it too.

Unfortunately for Schilling, and fortunately for the citizens of Massachusetts (and the US) there is ZERO likelihood of Schilling contending for the seat. He can want it all he wants, but Massachusetts doesn’t send Republican Senators to Washington, and if we did, they’d be at least MODERATELY qualified instead. Appearing before a congressional hearing on steroids does not count as experience.

Now don’t get me wrong, as a pitcher I have immense respect for Schilling, as a person, he strikes me — when not engaging in his many charitable activities — as a tool of the highest level. After all what kind of egomaniac needs to have his own blog to spew whatever comes out of his mind…

Oh.

Right.

Um.

I FORMALLY DECLARE MYSELF IN THE RACE TO BECOME THE NEXT SENATOR FROM MASSACHUSETTS!

It Would Have Been a Strike if it Went Further

I like Teddy Kennedy, I think he’s an awesome Senator and I’m glad he represents me in Congress. He’s a dedicated public servant and has done much for the people of the United States. It’s a good thing, because he doesn’t have a future pitching in the bigs..
