The Definition of Chutzpah
Posted by Heather Hurlburt

Does Rudy Giuliani really think he can go to Boston, announce he's rooting for the Red Sox in the World Series, and not get called on it?

Giulianiyankeesx That would be the sports equivalent of, say, wrapping yourself in a major national tragedy for purely political reasons?  Getting married three times and then discovering that other people's behavior puts our social fabric at risk?

Oh, yeah.  Same guy.

100_0666I wouldn't take Colorado (the purple-turning-blue state or the streaking baseball team) for granted myself.  And I do believe Red Sox and Yankees fans can live in harmony.  It just requires a little class.
