Video: Mitt alienates Red Sox nation

posted at 10:52 am on November 29, 2007 by Allahpundit

To some, this is a footnote to a footnote to an otherwise thrilling debate. To baseball fans, it’s an eyebrow-raiser. To Red Sox fans? Heart-ache.

Dear Mitt:

No “true suffering Red Sox fan” could possibly get this number wrong.

Love, AP

Update: As a result of this, I expect Dean Barnett to formally endorse Fred before the day is through.

HA HA HA….As a Yankee fan, I noticed it too last night. We used to count the years.

That made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

“We love our sports teams, and we hate the Yankees [and we don't really know shiz about baseball but we'll talk about it anyway to sound 'average']”

Yay for blatant pandering! :D

87′s pretty darn close… especially if he meant the 87th year. But agreed, footnote.

Vizzini on November 29, 2007 at 10:56 AM

At least he didn’t say his favorite player was Manny Ortiz! (John Kerry said that in 2004…a combination of Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz)

reppac122 on November 29, 2007 at 10:57 AM

So close, yet so far…

Esthier on November 29, 2007 at 10:57 AM

I can understand not believing in God, but being interested in baseball?

That’s weird.

saint kansas on November 29, 2007 at 10:59 AM

How long did he live in MA? Who’s Dean Barnett gonna endorse now?

JiangxiDad on November 29, 2007 at 11:01 AM

Boston fans are idiots anyway.

kcluva on November 29, 2007 at 11:01 AM

I’m a Mets fan, so the only number regarding the Bosox that means anything to me is 1986.

Always Right on November 29, 2007 at 11:07 AM

Mitt is actually a season ticket holder with the Red Sox, if memory serves.

Yeah, to me, 86 is the year of Bill Buckner.

Indeed, I even had a shirt about it.

That doesn’t mean anything. There are plenty of rich people here in Toronto who hold season tickets for Leafs games (hockey.) They almost never attend. And when they do, they just use the opportunity to mingle among themselves to talk business.

AlexB on November 29, 2007 at 11:13 AM

I didn’t know Boston had that many fingers and toes.

(running as fast as I can as far as I can)

Limerick on November 29, 2007 at 11:15 AM

Congratulations. Another nitpick at Mitt.

One day he’s “too perfect” next day a “math error” about a stinkin’ baseball team causes some to denounce their support!

Brat on November 29, 2007 at 11:34 AM

Not that I expect a friggin medal but if you go look at last night’s thread I pointed it out 15 or 16 seconds after he said it.

Joey1974 on November 29, 2007 at 11:35 AM

PROOF :

Romney drops the ball again it was 86 years not 87

A Moron In The Whitehouse?

Damn, the Republicans just lost the Massachusettes vote.

Romney’s seats were right behind the catcher’s right shoulder, about 15 rows up. You could see him at many games.

And might I add, surrounded by regular Joes with jeans and sox shirts on.

Guys this is getting stupid.

Ignorance truely must be bliss…… how many World Series have Los Metinos De Nueva York won since 86?

Joey1974 on November 29, 2007 at 12:07 PM

Pffffffffffftttttttttt……I’m still waiting for the Rangers to get out of Little League. Looks like it will be 86-87 years here too.

Limerick on November 29, 2007 at 12:13 PM

It’s 87 by the Mormon calendar. /rimshot

Glad this thread has turned into an attack on illegal immigration. Which Mets are in the country illegally?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on November 29, 2007 at 12:28 PM

Sox rock.

And Mitt should know better… but hardly a deal breaker.

reppac122 on November 29, 2007 at 10:57 AM

You’re giving Kerry too much credit. He said “Manny Ortez.”

Yoosaion on November 29, 2007 at 12:34 PM

Honestly, I don’t think this is that big of a deal.. a slight slip of the tongue trying to force a joke. What was offensive was when Kerry spent a week in a Red Sox hat, and when asked who his favorite Red Sox was, he stated emphatically “Manny Ortiz”. To this day, I’m still not sure who Manny Ortiz is… perhaps a bat boy?

RightWinged on November 29, 2007 at 5:18 PM

Honestly, it is a big deal. I’m a sox fan from Alabama and I knew it had been 86 years. He’s a Republican John Kerry; I’m telling you folks. Too slik by half! Just like when John Kerry could catch the football or was wind surfing or riding in those spedos. Too slik!
