Curt Schilling calls the governor of Rhode Island “a dunce of epic proportions”

Curt Schilling continues to blame other people for the fact that his company failed:

Former major league baseball pitcher Curt Schilling, whose video gaming company recently collapsed, called the governor a “dunce of epic proportions” … Schilling tweeted that “if the state loses money it’s because the Governor is a dunce of epic proportions, nothing I can do about that.”┬áIn follow-up tweets on Monday, Schilling also called the governor a “buffoon” and called the prospect of him getting re-elected in 2014 “terrifying.”

Not a nice thing to say to a guy who gave you $75 million in loan guarantees only to see you default on your obligations, fail to pay your employees — and having them work, unwittingly, for free in the meantime — and then leave them all in the lurch as you file for bankruptcy.

Yes, a politician was a problem. Not your overwhelming hubris, greed, ego and inexperience forming a toxic mix that ensured that you would fail before you even got that loan in the first place.
