Curt Schilling says Hillary Clinton “should be buried under a jail somewhere”

I hope you enjoyed the Super Tuesday results. And by “enjoyed” I mean “survived without succumbing to the urge to tear out your insides” and/or “spent four hours researching emigration laws in-depth.” I have no idea who is going to win this bad boy come November but I do know that, whoever it is, time travelers coming here from 20-30 years ago are gonna step out of their machine, take one good look around and then immediately go back to the time before they were born and make sure their parents never meet. And we will all envy them.

I guess what I’m saying is that, for a guy who knows a little bit about politics, I’m pretty darn confused by the 2016 election. Thank goodness, then, that we have astute political commentators offering their insights on the airwaves. Including the sports airwaves, like 610 AM in Kansas City, which hosted ESPN analyst and should-be Hall of Famer Curt Schilling yesterday. As usual, Schilling set us all straight on how the presidential race should turn out:

The host asked if Schilling thinks Hillary Clinton will go to prison. “I hope she does,” said Schilling. “If I’m gonna believe, and I don’t have any reason not to believe, that she gave classified information on hundreds if not thousands of emails on a public server after what happened to General Petraeus, she should buried under a jail somewhere.”

If one were less respectful of Schilling one might note that he and Hillary Clinton (a) have both done things for which many have called for their prosecution; (b) have both been investigated by the government in an extensive manner; and (c) have both been determined to not have broken any laws and/or have been worth prosecuting and thus should probably be free to go about their daily lives, but I would never point that out because, hey, Schilling was an amazing pitcher and I have too much respect for him.

Also, if you think Schilling was just being partisan, know that he went after candidates from both parties. Specifically, “Schilling criticized Trump for failing to elaborate on his proposals with depth.” Which suggests that, sure, he’s open to crazy, unworkable ideas fueled by rage, delusion and racial and ethnic resentment, he just needs to know how we’ll pay for them. That’s just sensible.

Anyway, glad to see that even now, so many years after his retirement, Curt Schilling still has his fastball.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
