Obama Ratchets Up Rhetoric, Denounces Cub Nation

Possibly resulting from the first round of Joe Biden’s foreign policy memos, presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama saber-rattled yesterday in the direction of the North Side on ESPN:

Who he’d root for in a Cubs-Sox World Series: “Oh, that’s easy. White Sox. . . . You go to Wrigley Field, you have a beer, beautiful people up there. People aren’t watching the game. It’s not serious. White Sox, that’s baseball. South Side.”

No word yet on whether Senator John McCain has been informed of the existence of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    i was walking home down that douchebag strip of division in the ukrainian village last night and every tv on those fucking seats that block the goddamn sidewalk “outdoor patios” was tuned to the cubs despite the fact that they were up by 10 and the sox were involved in a one run game in baltimore.

    oh, except for one tv at someplace that’s now called “50/50″ (the name seems to change every spring), they had a san diego chargers preseason game on espn.

    Well, as the Sun-Times proved this week, Sox fans certainly aren’t going to spend any time looking at each other.

    Look, on November 4th this just might be a country with a World Champion Cubs team and a black president. Certainly, I couldn’t wish anything more on the South Side than that.

    I think I just got very, very depressed contemplating that “prediction” Ben. Given both Cubs history and recent Democratic history.

    McCain actually went to the D-Backs game on Sunday. Though Moorad also gave to Romney in the primary, and one of the other owners, to Romney and Rudy.

    allegedly mccain was heard to say that he really admired tony lazzeri’s play at the keystone.
