Flash: Red Sox Nation Skipper to Save the American Nation: Evil Empire Gnashes/Rays Bedeviled

From the always reliable George Packer comes this update on Boston Red Sox Manager Terry Francona’s shockingly unexpected new job(s). (h/t Avi Zenilmann)

No word yet on whether he plans to walk on water to his new office.

(It should be noted that while soon to be ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling (R-bloody sock) is a vocal if dunderheaded McCain supporter (“the true beauty (sic) of Senator McCain, in my opinion, lies in his accountability.”  That would be the accountability that leads him to hire the firm that slandered him in 2000 to make attacks he lacks the guts to make himself ), top Red Sox management is led by a stalwart Democratic Party supporter.)

    Bah. I can hardly say I’m surprised to find out Schilling is a McCain supporter. And don’t get me started on that bloody sock incident–if he wasn’t such a chowderhead, I’d suspect he was reading Crime and Punishment just before the big game. And then I would wonder if his guilt (a la bloody sock) had eaten away at him enough yet to make him ‘fess up to faking the whole thing. (Nice chain of thought there, right? My high school English teacher practically bashed the significance of the bloody sock into my head nine years ago…)

    Anyway, it’s all immaterial, because regardless of their opponent, the Phils are going to win the World Series in the name of the birthplace of liberty, thus restoring peace to the world and making America safe for democracy once again. Oh, and if you haven’t heard, Barack Obama is rooting for the Phillies now, with the White Sox gone from the playoffs. Shameless political shilling (SCHILLING!) of course, but hey, I’ll take it.

    Oh yeah–Shane Victorino for President! I want a shirt that says Victorino/Hamels ’08.
