Cubs and Obama Brace for September Storm

Nobody ever said pulling off a Double Fantasy of hope would be easy.

 

As the Cubs try to avoid sliding head first into another historically tragic “occurrence”, the Obama campaign must learn to respectfully debate and counterpunch our nation’s new spokesperson for conservative creationism. The double steal McCain and Co. are trying to pull off with their selection of Sarah Palin makes one almost nostalgic for compassionate conservatism. Almost…

 

McCain and Palin seen here on the campaign trail failing to get their signs in synch. Who can blame them for not yet being on the same page? They’ve spent less time together in the last year than Ronnie Woo Woo and his orthodontist.

Before making plans to move to a part of the world that both values scientific reasoning and can care less about Major League Baseball, rejoice in the fact that the fundamentals of both campaigns this fall our on our side. Despite this week’s pseudo pageantry in the Twin Cities, the Republican party today is about as popular as David Kingman was in The Friendly Confines a generation ago after blowing off  his own tee-shirt day. It will take several stadiums of hockey moms to win the electoral Stanley Cup in November.

As for the Cubs, their lineup from top to bottom is as strong as there is in the National League if not all of baseball. Their pitching, assuming Carlos Zambrano’s right shoulder isn’t impeached in the next eight weeks, is solid from their front line of starters through a mostly stingy bullpen. While their lead over the also slumping Brewers is not insurmountable, the team’s nine game advantage in Wildcard polling can help us skate through a September surprise of mediocrity.

 

All of this said, the Cubbies, like the democrats, have a history of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Accordingly, as a convention week tribute to Governor Palin, ObamaCubs.com is asking its supporters to ignore the day-to-day realities they see in front of them and rely on prayer and the hand of God to guide us past home plate.

With the face of a champion, Carlos Marmol is poised to deliver us all to the promised land.

    I must say, while I disagree with you on Obama being our next president. I do agree with you on the Cubbies. I also love your concept of marrying the two together. This is definitely a interesting take on the election and a fun blog to read.
