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.)

Dem Sox back in the playoffs.

I know —  the rest of you are tired of Boston sports teams, Red Sox Nation, and all that.  What can I say?  I needed something to wash the taste of this* out of my mouth.  I suppose I’ll force myself to blog it, but for a moment, this is much more fun.

*If there were a Hall of Fame for stupid, its author would be a first ballot, unanimous selection.  Just sayin.
