Curt Shilling of the Red Sox Endorses Bush

The Boston Red Sox won their first World Series since the end of Worl War I and all is jubilant in Bean Town. Well, not quite all. You see, Senator Kerry hails from the state that the Sox call home. He has tried to brag about them but usually shows his sports ignorance by talking about his favorite Sox player (who was never on the team) or by incorrectly naming current players.

Why is all not well? Less than 24 hours after the Red Sox won the Series star pitcher Curt Shilling was on Good Morning America with his wife. This is the exchange at the end of the interview:

ABC’S CHARLIE GIBSON: “Well, well said, Curt and Shonda. You both have certainly lifelong membership now in the Red Sox nation. It was a great thing to watch, and I think everybody ? whether they were great Red Sox fans or not ? had to admire what this team did. It was extraordinary, and one of the great stories of sport. And sport always produces such great stories. Curt, Shonda, great to have you with us. Congratulations.”

CURT AND SHONDA SCHILLING: “Thank You.”

CURT SCHILLING: “And make sure you tell everybody to vote, and vote Bush next week.” (ABC’s “Good Morning America,” 10/28/04)

It would appear that Shilling knows what is at stake in this election. I only hope that the Bush campaign gets him to go around and preach this message in Massachusetts just before the election. Maybe Bush will show up for the party there in Boston. Now wouldn’t that be great!
