News Flash: ballplayers are somewhat conservative

I am shocked, SHOCKED that a pool of poll respondees who are overwhelmingly wealthy and who tend to hail from the south and rural areas skews conservative. But, as Dustin Parkes gleans from a recent ESPN the Magazine survey, ballplayers do in fact swing that way.

In other news, I don’t care if a ballplayer on the team I root for is a communist, an anarchist, a card carrying Whig or a member of The Rent is Too Damn High Party as long as he can mash taters and/or strike dudes the hell out, as is appropriate.

    Conservastive or Liberal, everyone at that level of politics are worthless. They have all been corrupted at some point to get there and do not care a thing about the citizens of this country. They only care about themselves and their status. Both sides of the isle will tell us whatever we want to hear for us to vote for them and in the end not do a damn thing that helps us.

        My apologies to the English teacher here on this board. I posted the comment from my phone on an airplane last week while reading the article; obviously you have never used a phone for this type of thing. By the way, when you start a sentence, you usually capitalize the first word.

    They surveyed only 20 ballplayers? Small sample size.
