Curt Schilling for Senate? A columnist's dream!

Curt Schilling is considering running for Ted Kennedy's Senate seat. So I wrote a news article for The Faster Times on it.

I think it would be a hoot if he runs. He would immediately give me a ton to write about. Can you imagine how entertaining it would be to see him on the campaign trail? It's a columnist's dream! He could single-handedly revitalize the newspaper industry!

But what do you think? Leave us a comment.

I can't think of a better person to replace the poster child for term limits and represent the fine people of Massachusetts--Go Curt, we're behind you 110%!

Hey, if Californis could elect the Terminator, Minnesota a wrestler for Gov and "Me-Al Franken" for the Senate, why shouldn't Curt go for it? Come to thing of it, Reagan didn't do too bad.....of course, we would have to put up with anti-Yankee legislation at every session of Congress.......

We should remind Crybaby Curt that, in 2006, the Republican Party of Pennsylvania nominated for Governor Lynn Swann, the Hall of Fame receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Swann is beloved, is a very friendly guy, is a successful businessman, has never thrown a teammate under the bus (Jerome Bettis or otherwise), and as far as anyone can tell he's completely clean.

And yet, he lost. Was it because Governor Ed Rendell, the incumbent Democrat, is beloved? Maybe from the Susquehanna on east, but that's not why Swannie lost. He lost because the people of Pennsylvania didn't trust Republicans. (The Penn GOP owes Swannie big-time. They should nominate him for Arlen Specter's Senate seat, but they won't.)

So, with the memories of Governors Bill Weld, Paul Cellucci, Jane (None Too) Swift and NittWitt Mitt Romney in mind, does anybody really think Massachusetts is going to trust a Republican -- especially for the seat of Ted Kennedy?

He should keep in mind another example: Ernie Banks. He once ran for Board of Aldermen (City Council) in Chicago. Everybody loves Ernie (or so it was thought). He's Mr. Cub. He's had no scandal attached to his name. He was a cinch to win, right?

Wrong, he finished 4th out of 5. Why? Because, being black, he thought he should run on the South Side. Smart? Not smart enough: The South Side is White Sox territory, and Pale Hose fans hate the Cubs and everyone associated with them, even Ernie Banks!

So Crybaby Curt should keep that in mind: In Massachusetts, they love the Red Sox, but they may not love this particular Red Sock (even with his red sock -- test that blood for steroids!), and they certainly don't love Republicans. Especially if it's Joe Kennedy, Bobby's son and Ted's nephew who once served in the House, who goes for it.
