Kerry should consider getting Fred Gwynne (Herman Munster) for personal appearances instead. Only problems are:

1. Nobody could tell them apart.

2. Gwynne is dead.

At least Gwynne will likely vote Democrat.

Kennedy, the Red Sox, Kerry . . . here's to hoping the Pat's keep up the streak of losers that come from the state of Mass.

Well this should come as no surprise. After all, Tom Brady does play a conservative game on the field. And he's often misunderestimated, as his opponents have been discovering the hard way all year.

Could someone please tell me where is the "battle"? Laura Bush asked Brady to sit in her section, he did, he seems to like G.W. Now Kerry is trying to get him to do something for him. I don't see a "battle" with that. The title makes it sound like W. is pulling on one arm and Kerry is pulling the other. It might be more of a battle if Bush asked him not to do anything for Kerry, which I doubt will happen.

Being from New England doesn't change anything, he's an athlete.
A few years ago I read in Music Magazine that liberals are mostly fans of actors and musicians, and that those on the right are mostly fans of athletes.
Since that time, I've found this to be more and more true every day.

I'd say you're right, but I guess it doesn't hurt. Plus, Brady has appeal beyond New England, especially in Michigan.

ONE superbowl in 37 years and that by a 3 point margin they almost blew on the last play. Mass is still a state full of losers, politically and in sports.

You're kidding right? First off, look up at the ceiling of the Fleet and talk to me about "losers."

Second, "almost blew on the last play?" What the HELL does that mean? They WON the game on the last play. And criticizing a Super Bowl team's margin of victory is just transcendent comedy. You're an idiot, don't post about sports ever again. Carry on.

Perhaps Kerry could get Pedro Martinez to stand up for him...but then he'd be in trouble with New Yorkers and also lose the old, chubby, senile, bald guy vote.

I was on Rush Limbaugh in October 2002 discussing Rush's inappropriate placement of Tom Daschle's head on Tom Brady's body in a graphic:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: … It’s just the latest political calculation that Daschle’s making. Thanks Rick, I appreciate that. Here is Adam in Rose Valley, Pennsylvania. Hello, sir, Nice to have you on the program.

“ADAM FROM ROSE VALLEY, PENNSYLVANIA”: Nice to be on. Mega- Philadelphia Eagles 20, Tampa Bay Bucs 10 dittos. Now …

Rush: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hold it a second. Hold it. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, what is it with Jon Gruden? They score their first offensive points, a field goal, 42 minutes into the game. You got half your defense out, injured. I’m not taking away from the Eagles here. You’re a great team. You’ve already won the NFC East. The others may as well hang it up.

Adam: I’ve gone to three straight Eagles games, and they have not scored an offensive touchdown yet, Tampa Bay. Now, Rush, I usually agree with everything you say, but I gotta object strongly to something on your website …

Rush: ohhh, no …

Adam: … and I’m not a seminal, seminar caller, but you have up there, regarding “Democrats Praying for a Hail Mary Pass”, a very unfair and unnecessary cheap, cheap shot. You have Tommy Daschle’s face up there on Tom Brady’s body. That is not the least bit fair. I mean, why couldn’t you have used Doug Flutie? Is that a concession to Alex Spanos?

R: No-o-o-o! …

A: … I mean, Flutie’s 5 foot 4. He supports Hillary Clinton. Brady, among all NFL quarterbacks, is one of
us.

R: He is?

A: Well, he lists that he’s a huge fan of the movie “Braveheart.” He didn’t say “American Beauty.” He’s not a Susan Sarandon, Ben Affleck Hollywood type. He lists, as “favorite actor,” Mel Gibson. I mean, he
said he wants to be a U.S. Senator, and he listed Gerald Ford as the most impressive person he’s ever met. I mean, the Patriots have struggled a bit lately. They’re not even one of my favorite teams; I like the Eagles. But, you know, you really should have put him on Flutie’s body.

R: Now, well, it would have worked with Flutie. You’re right. The reason we put him on there is because the whole Patriots’ season last year was a Hail Mary. Umm…

A: He does short passes most of the time, but [Rush laughs] I’m with you.

R: Now, we couldn’t find a South Dakota player in the NFL.

A: Uhh, Adam Vinatieri. South Dakota State.

R: Yeah, but he’s a kicker. That’s right. And he’salso from the Patriots, so that would have made you mad, if we had put him on Vinatieri’s …

A: Well, it would have been random. I don’t even like the Patriots, by the way, but, you know, Tom Brady,
look … he subtly hints that he’s … He’s probably even a listener of yours, to tell the truth.

R: If he is, he’s probably not any more. Or, if he was [laughter] …

A: Why? I’m sticking up for him here.

R: Well, because [Rush laughs], because of the Steelers last year and the Raiders, I mean, I ripped ‘em, I creamed ‘em. I said they’re in there cause of the officiating, not because of their success. I eventually came around of course, but only once. Most of the time, I ripped ‘em. Nah, we put Daschle’s face up there, to tell you the truth, this was, this is, this is just we grabbed, I don’t know why the webmaster did it. I wish I had an answer for you. I’m guessing because there’s some association with the headline “Hail Mary,” and the Patriots’ season was a Hail Mary. I’m not sure Coco knows a New England Patriots’ uniform from a San Diego [Adam laughs] Chargers’ uniform.

A: Well, all I know is …

Rush: … and I’m not passing the buck. I’m not passing the buck. [Likely addressing people in studio:] No I’m not. I am not passing it. You know I never pass the buck. I’m trying to explain this. I’m taking it on myself. I’m the one that took it on my---, I take everything on myself, whenever anybody screws up, nobody knows it. I take it, because I’m the one out there getting the credit for when it all goes right, so I take the heat when I’m wrong. And I did in this case. But I’m su---, I don’t, I don’t know why it’s up there. I’m just guessing because it’s a Hail Mary season, and here’s Daschle, maybe, it’s probably just the first graphic we found where the head matched the… Who knows?

Of all the things to be upset about! I can’t believe


[CUT TO COMMERCIAL]

Rush: OK, Coco the webmaster says since I call Daschle the illegitimate majority leader, it only fits since I called the Patriots illegitimate champs way back when, after the officiating call in that Raiders playoff game. So that’s why Daschle is on Tom Brady’s body on the website.

[CUT TO HOURLY BREAK]

[AT END OF BUMPER DURING THIRD HOUR OF THE SHOW, “Hold
On” by Santana is playing.]

Rush: Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive unit.
