http://edition.cnn.com/2016/08/16/polit ... d=27738682Outspoken former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is weighing a bid to unseat Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren when she comes up for re-election in 2018.
In an interview Monday with WRKO's "The Kuhner Report," Schilling said he had begun to seriously consider a political career and that one job had caught his eye.
"I thought about it, and one of the things I would like to do is be one of the people responsible for getting Elizabeth Warren out of politics," he said. "I think she's a nightmare and I think that the Left is holding her up as the second coming of Hillary Clinton, but Lord knows we don't even need the first one."
Schilling, a sports hero in Boston after helping the 2004 Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years, said the decision would hinge on advice from campaign experts and "a conversation with the boss," his wife, Shonda.
Asked about the ongoing presidential race, Schilling affirmed his support for Donald Trump, but did say he was "not happy at how (Trump) has projected himself at different places and different times."
His comments Monday marked the second time in a little more than a week Schilling had suggested he would consider a career in politics.
In a Facebook comment on August 7, he wrote, "I am going to run, soon."
I only know of this guy from his computer gaming sagas, but from I gather that he is an insufferable asshole who is very good at conning people out of money and claiming credit for other peoples work, while running companies into the ground with mismanagement and outlandish ideas. I'll toss out storys and links when I feel up to delving into the bowels of the interwebs, but to call him "Trump-like" is not out of place.
In the meantime Senator Warren will be shaking in her boots at this clown.
