Is that a stupid question? Of course it is. The Sox will either win or lose. My neighbors, family and I will experience either agony or ecstasy tonight. We have no other choice. Only an idiot would ask such a question.
So why is the Iraq War different? We will either win or lose. That’s all there is. Any “exit strategy” Kerry might come up with means we’ll lose. That’s it. This old Vietnam Veteran has seen this all before.
What if Kerry wanted the job of manager of the Red Sox? Can you imagine what he’d be saying about Terry Francona this morning? Here are some interesting possibilities”
1 -“Francona is so incompetent that he has no plan to win the series after he’d won three games in a row. I can do better.”
2 - “Last night the Red Sox made 27 outs in nine innings. Francona is so lousy at his job because he had no plan. I can do better.”
3 - “I know the Sox won, but that’s only because the Yankees got 27 outs before they got five runs. I can do better.”
4 – “Can you believe Francona’s team scored absolutely no runs in eight of the nine innings? I can do better.””
5 – “Curt Schilling allowed Bernie Williams to smash a huge homerun while Francona was managing him. I can do better.”
6 – “Francona allowed Keith Foulke to walk two Yankees in the bottom of the ninth. I can do better.”
The funny thing is Kerry was booed by the Sox fans when he threw out the first ball earlier in the season. He didn’t even know the names of any of the Sox players and expressed admiration for “Manny Ortez” dissing the great Manny Ramirez and the great David Ortiz.
While John F. Kerry knows absolutely nothing about Baseball and the Red Sox, he knows far less about being the President of the United States of America. This guy is the ultimate phony.
My friends, listen to what he says about the Red Sox after tonight’s game and know that he knows absolutely nothing about what he’s talking about.
I would be a much better president than him.
