There was yet another Democratic presidential debate last night, this one at Dartmouth University. Someone asked a really cintillating question, one all Americans should know before casting a ballot in next year's presidential election: "Which team do you support, the Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees?" Here are the candidates responses:
Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Cleveland Indians.
New York Sen. Hillary Clinton: Yankees.
Former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel: Red Sox.
Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: Red Sox.
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: White Sox.
Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd: Red Sox.
Delaware Sen. Joe Biden: Yankees.
Oh, brother. Who gives a rat's ass what these hypocrites think about baseball? I've never cast a
ballot with the idea that "I'll vote for the one who supports my team." Of all the issues surrounding us as a nation, this is just silly. I'm sure it was asked in the spirit of breaking the tension and having some fun, but when you mix politicians and sports, idiocy is sure to follow.
