Quote of the Day: new Dodgers’ Monitor Tom Schieffer

Schieffer

Tim Brown of Yahoo! was the first one to get comments from Tom Schieffer following his appointment as the “Monitor” of the Dodgers’ organization.  The former ambassador to Japan and Australia was asked about whether he’s up to the challenge of fixing the dysfunctional Dodgers:

 “Oh, I’ve had some pretty difficult jobs before. Dealing with the North Koreans is generally a pretty tough day.”

I suppose it’s an open question as to whether the Dodgers’ kleptocracy or North Korea’s will be harder to fix.

One question that is also open, based on Schieffer’s comments, regards the future of Frank McCourt.  I found this exchange pretty telling:

Asked if he believed the Dodgers could be restored with McCourt as the owner, Schieffer said he would not address particular issues.

“I’m not going to get into that,” he said. “We’ll see what happens as we go forward. I do hope my experience in management can help there.”

In other words, don’t print your business cards in bulk, Frank.

    “The rendition guilty trolls that kidnapped my dear friend Nails clearly forgot that he’s a fellow Vatican assassin and his best pal is a warlock.”

    We’ll get some real answers when Tom is on “Face The Nation” Sunday morning.
