You can't make this stuff up 

If you are running for public office, never, ever, pretend to sports knowledge. Just admit you don't know shit from apple butter and turn the subject to national health insurance.
Twice on Sunday, the Democrat said he was basking in the glory of Boston’s 10-9 win on Saturday night. The problem was, the Red Sox won 11-9.

"Ten-nine, the Sox did fabulous," Mr Kerry said with a big smile as he ducked into church on Sunday morning in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Inside, the minister asked worshippers to clap "if the Lord has done anything wonderful in your life this week", to which Mr Kerry applauded.

"I had a special reason to clap," Mr Kerry explained. "The Red Sox won 10-9."

Mr Kerry’s spokesman, David Wade, said the senator got the score wrong because 10-9 was the last update he got during his late-night flight to Florida.

The problem is, the score never was 10-9. The Sox won on a two-run homer, meaning they went from nine runs to 11. Regardless, Mr Kerry’s adviser, Mike McCurry, explained to reporters: "The senator had bad intelligence last night."

["The senator had bad intelligence last night."]

And that makes this night different from others how?

There is a reason football fans want you to know about this...

I don't suppose Kerry really cares about getting the World Series score right or wrong. His Comrades in the People's Republic of Taxachusetts will vote for him anyway.

*prepare for even-handed joke*

But Kerry saw the same intelligence as Bush did!

*end even-handed joke*

You know, in Kerry's defense, between the time Varitek crossed the plate and Bellhorn completed his home run trot, technically it was 10-9. =P

I'd say that's about as fair as saying "the british government has learned" as an ass-covering mechanism.

I just gave you a Hat Tip from Kerry strikes out ... Twice.

Did you know you can go to http://www.haloscan.com/ and install a free inbound trackback system? I dumped Blogger for TypePad so I don't need it any more but I was nothing but happy with it.
