Curt Schilling makes a pitch for Senate. VOTE!

EDIT: See poll results at upper right. It seems likely that Curt Schilling may make a run for becoming Senator from Massuchusetts. Remember, he is self-aggrandizing, so he'd fit in quite well. And his complete lack of experience and utter absence of qualifications may not necessarily be viewed as a negative, considering all the experienced, qualified individuals who run the country right now. And, from the baseball card point of view, since companies see no problem in producing baseball cards of politicians, he'd fit in doublewell. He:

supports gun owners but wants restrictions on assault weapons and wouldn’t allow convicted felons to own guns;
is pro-life;
is anti-gay marriage;
stumped for John McCain in 2008 but previously voted for Bill Clinton;
and "always tried to vote for the right team more so than the right person.”

In that regard, he "believed in" Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice.

Schilling, 42, whose voter status is unenrolled, would have to run as an independent.

Democrats Stephen Lynch, a congressman from South Boston, and state Attorney General Martha Coakley have taken out nominating papers in anticipation of a run. Other potential candidates include Kennedy’s nephew, former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II, and Reps. Michael Capuano, Edward Markey and John Tierney. There are no baseball cards of any of these people that we're aware of, so Mr. Schilling would have quite an advantage in that regard!

Other than not really agreeing with him on any of the major topics (I'm a bleeding heart liberal, he...is not), it's tempting to get my Massachusetts residency back and vote for him due to my Mass upbringings/Red Sox love. He'd certainly get quite a few votes from the hometown faithful, and they're actually a pretty conservative bunch when you get further central/west. Stranger things have happened I guess.
