Go Curt go ...
[Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt] Schilling downplayed talk of a future run for John F. Kerry’s Senate seat, but he also said he has considered politics as a possible next step to a baseball career that has brought him name recognition and enormous public admiration.

“Since (politics) has come up, it’s something my wife and I have talked about a couple of times,” Schilling told WRKO’s Todd Feinburg yesterday. “If this were something I would seriously consider in the future, it would be . . . to make a difference in the world, not to do anything other than that.”

Political analysts have not started running the polling numbers just yet, but they say Schilling’s popularity, wealth and intelligence give him the raw materials needed to be a serious contender.

“Considering the lack of Republicans who could give John Kerry a run, Schilling has as good a chance as anybody,” Boston University professor Tobe Berkovitz said yesterday.

“The press always likes a quirky, unique candidate, and Schilling certainly fits that.”

Officials with the Massachusetts Republican Party sounded enthusiastic yesterday about a potential Schilling candidacy, especially given Kerry’s perceived weakness in the polls after some highly publicized political gaffes.

“Of course, we’d love to see Curt Schilling run for Senate,” GOP executive director Brian Dodge said. “He’s a proven winner, he’s very well-liked in Massachusetts and he clearly has an interest in politics.”
Me, I'd simply like to see John Kerry shuffled off the national stage once and for all. I'm tired of him, I'm tired of his schtick and, as any long time reader of QandO knows, I have very little personal regard for the man for reasons that have been stated any number of times.

So Curt, if you're thinking about it, I encourage you to do it ... as is obvious, the people of MA can do worse.

Now if we could just find a Schilling to take on the senior senator from that state at the appropriate time, all would be lovely.

Maybe Romney will take another shot at the Senate assuming his Presidency bid fails.

The only way we will take Kennedy’s senate seat is when we pry it from his cold, dead hands. The GOP could run Jesus Christ against Kennedy and Ted would prevail. That seat will be Ted’s until he decides he doesn’t want it any more or when he assumes room temperature. Kerry, on the other hand, is beatable.

Unfortunately, Curt has decided he wants to keep pitching through 2008. Lurch is safe from Curt in 2008.

I think this says a lot about both Massachusetts and the state of the Republican Party there!

Why do people keep re-electing him?

I can understand liberals liking his anti-American stances, but the dude voted AGAINST Kyoto and they still elect him?

Schilling is a good guy. Among other things he’s an avid gamer who has single-handedly kept some of his favorite table-top wargames in existence.

What does his voting have to do with it?

They are liberals after all.
