    The Democrat in me hopes that Grimes goes on the air with ads pillorying McConnell for not knowing the difference between a Wildcat and a Blue Devil.

    On the other hand, the idealist in me is wondering, WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT SPORTS TEAMS SENATORS ROOT FOR???  It's an incredibly sad statement about our politics today that something like this might actually matter and affect how people vote.  There's a comment above about Martha Coakley's Red Sox-Yankees screwup--that might have cost her the election.

    Our country is a sad, sad place.

      don't vote on issues, they vote on PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION.

      Which of these people do I connect with better.  Which one fits in the best with the rest of my life.

      So if you are a big Red Sox fan and Martha Coakley does not know about Curt Schilling and the bloody sock, it makes you feel distant from her.  No connection, no identification, no vote.

      It's not about sports teams exactly.  It's about making connections with people on a basic level.

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
