    Kerry, Bush campaigns spar over basking in Red Sox win

    John Kerry knew he was in enemy territory on the morning after his hometown Boston Red Sox won the World Series, but he couldn't help himself.

    "I'm not completely out of touch. I understand you have the (Cincinnati) Reds and the (Cleveland) Indians," he told a raucous audience Thursday in a school gym here. "But you gotta give me just a couple of minutes of feeling great. It's been 86 years!" The Red Sox last won the World Series in 1918.

    Kerry recalled a man who phoned a radio show about a year ago "when things weren't going so well" for the campaign. "Thinking they were just cutting me right to he quick, they said, 'John Kerry won't be president until the Red Sox win the World Series.' "

    A roar swept over the crowd as Kerry said, "We're on our way."

    Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling took a different point of view and endorsed President Bush on Thursday on ABC's Good Morning America. "Tell everybody to vote — and vote Bush — next week," he said.

    Bush thanked Schilling and also telephoned his congratulations to the team owner and president. "This is a long time coming, and he shares in their excitement at winning the World Series," Bush spokesman Scott McClellan said.

    Does Kerry even know what sport the Red Sox just won a championship in? I bet he got a briefing on it.

    Suddenly Bush cares about the Red Sox? Bush is willing to pretend he's a Red Sox fan in order to have a shot at New Hampshire's 4 Electoral Votes?

    I don't think Bush is at all suggesting he is a Red Sox fan. He owned the Rangers, after all. This is Bush reminding the nation he's a baseball man while apparently Kerry prefers to go watch football at Lambert Field.

    Face it Blitz, Kerry lives in his aristocrat world, full of rich people. He doesn't know who the Bruins, Red Sox, Patriots, or Celtics are. All he knows is caviar, $10 bottled water, and his 4 houses (all of which are worth more than the average man makes in 20 years). Bush, on the other hand, no matter how much money he owns, you can tell he is much more like the Average Joe.
    Shut the front door, you son-of-a-businessman.

    How many Presidents have hosted the Superbowl champs after they win? Does that mean they were rooting for those teams? You should really change your name from Blitz to Ditz.
