Jock Itch...

Curt Schilling wants in as a GOP candidate for Edward Maximus' senate seat?
Didn't see that one coming...
On paper though it makes some sense, he can self finance a race and as far as the local republican's are concerned he is a reliable wingnut in his views.
However, a born again christian has never gone state-wide in Massachusetts (that I know of, feel free to correct) and that is a unknown factor to be sure.
On the other hand Romney's Mormonism was no great impediment but then he knew how to market his religion as an advantage.
I think Schilling could do some populist business out there until he started saying dumb-ass stuff on the stump. I mean, solicit his views on Darwin's theory of evolution or Asimov's three laws of robotics if you wanna find out.
But the man is a hero a veritable Knight of the Bloody Sock, let us give him that, however politics is a great breaker of heroes.
