In the spirit of Election Day 2008, I have decided to compare the main figures in this year's election to sports stars of today.
Old, grizzled, stiff war veteran.
Old, gray-bearded, unmobile, football player.
Good-looking, funny, full of personality, unfit for leadership.
Funny, never shuts up, unfit for leadership (see ruins in Los Angeles and Miami)
Enthusiastic, inexperienced, welcomes change to Washington.
Eccentric, inexperienced (never been past the 2nd round), and would always welcome a change, or championship to Washington.
Bland, boring, vanilla, gets it done.
The Big Fundamental has 4 rings.
In the race most of the time, but never wins.
Close the last few tears, but 100 year drought continues.
