Name-dropping is an irrelevance and a core component of political posturing. Appeals to the most irrelevant relationships are supposedly important to voters who, as I've noted before here, are dumber than stumps.
The rivalry between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox has escalated during the last decade as the two teams seemingly are always in contention for the American League pennant. Gather several million mouth-breathing fans of the once great national pastime and build rivalry to reap big bucks. It works well for NYC and Beantown.
So in some sort of desperation we've got this:
One must ask how much denial is this woman in? She's obligated to mention the Yankee/Bosox rivalry to gain some sort of credibility. Then she suggests that Rudy Guiliani might be a supporter. Remember he's a Republican. And finally rips it with the assertion that Curt Schilling is a Yankees fan.
