You Said It, Jeremy Long

The Palin fires, however, show signs of banking. Over at Sheffield Lanes, mention of her name summons no glint from older bowlers, or from Jeremy and Joe Long, in their 20s, tipping Buds. They liked Mrs. Clinton but pass on Ms. Palin.

“She’s always talking about the ‘Average Joe,'” Jeremy Long said. “Average me! I don’t want myself in the Oval Office. I want someone smarter.”

Never was a truer word spoken. Give me a Rhodes Scholar, war-hero, economic-policy-expert candidate over some beer-swilling jagoff anyday. After the past eight years, we’ve had enough of the latter to last another 275 years. (I hope.)

  1. Pat do you still think McCain is going to win?

  2. Sure, but why no comment on the Steelers this week?

  3. A McCain win looks somewhat unlikely. But I refuse to make predictions one way or the other. You really just never know, no matter what polls say. Today I saw that Georgia is in play — that is seemingly insane, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

    And the Steelers loss can be summed up in three words: Injuries are unfortunate.

  4. Its a great quote.
