Pass me the Bromo...

The Big Four, Politics, Baseball, Fox TV, and Paranoia all came together last night in Philly. In a game that should never even have started and then in a game that was peculiarly stopped half-way through an inning in which the Tampa Bay Rays were allowed to tie a game against the Phillies, Fear and Loathing officially opened a chapter in baseball.
Was it a coincidence that McCain/Palin flew into Philadelphia around 9:00 pm last night and then the rain at Citizens Bank Park really starting pouring down? Was it true about the unconfirmed reports of the (In The) Straight(s) Talk campaign plane circling the field before landing and seeding the clouds? Is it true that Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is one of the most stupid and socially challenged human beings ever to don a sloppy suit? Is it true about Billy Penn's curse? Will the Phillies, up 3-1 in games and needing just one more victory, collapse under the weight of Selig, McCain, Palin, and Fox TV jumping on them because the city favors Obama? Time for a Congressional investigation and for me to cut down on my coffee intake.
