The Real John Kerry

Both Kerry and Bush made (pre-taped) appearances on SportsCenter this morning. One of the questions they were asked was whether or not they're worried about the migration of some sports onto cable or pay-per-view.

Bush said he believes in free markets and blah-blah-blah.

Kerry said that he believes there is a threshold where the biggest sporting events should always be available to all folks on broadcast. The two examples he used for big-time sporting events? The Super Bowl and . . . the World Cup.

Those aren't my values!

News Flash, John. The Super Bowl and the World Cup ARE the biggest sporting events in the world. It's nice to see a potential leader of the world's only superpower realize that "World" in sporting event titles can include counties outside the US. And as a leader of the world's only superpower it's nice to see him show leadership in that area.

News flash redux. As far as I am concerned, I am voting for a President of the USA, not the UN. If Kerry panders to world opinion on sports issues, what hope do we have about economic and national security matters. The World Cup?? What about the World Series? Guess Kerry is not "giddy" about the Sox now that Schilling is against him. And what about the College Football Championship Game (which I hope drops the BCS and goes to a playoff) This is just further insight into how the man thinks. Kerry is completely out of touch with mainstream America. Ok, I've had enough, I'm heading to Wendy's on my way to LambeAU field. I hear there are some ducks over there....
