Curt Schilling: I'd Like To Dishonor Ted Kennedy
Apparently, Curt Schilling - the ex-baseball playing, World of Warcraft fan - is considering running for the seat left open from Ted Kennedy's death. To be clear, Schilling is a hard conservative, and did 'robo-calls' for George W. Bush in 2004, etc. While it's unlikely that Massachusetts would choose to fill Kennedy's seat with a red meat Republican, you never know, right?
But before folks think that he's the guy who helped Boston win in 2004 with the bloody sock, etc., remember that Curt Schilling has his own blog. Where he posts such gems as this:
Ann Coulter might be extreme, but damn the woman is intelligent in ways that piss so many people off. You have to think that with as much anger and hatred as she elicits, she has to be hitting too close to home for some.
I disagree with some of what she says, I do wish she was more subdued so more people would listen to the actual content of what she says, but she has an opinion and really doesn’t give a damn what people think, there’s something admirable about that...most of the time.
Nice caveats there, Curt. I hate to point it out but a lot of time people are enraged with anger because what someone says is terribly offensive. The 'content' of what she says is that women ask for rape, non-Christians should be forced to convert to Christianity, liberals are all traitors, etc. Good enough for you? How about some examples? For instance...
“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.”
“My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building”
“Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.”
“Whether they are defending the Soviet Union or bleating for Saddam Hussein, liberals are always against America. They are either traitors or idiots, and on the matter of America's self-preservation, the difference is irrelevant.”
Really, I could go on for al long time but I already feel dirty. There's just about NOTHING that Coulter says that people pay attention to that isn't purely for shock value, purely to agitate (mission accomplished) and utterly repugnant. To align yourself with her is to admit to being a first rate nincompoop. Stick to sports and computer games, Curt.
