The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Bombing outside the Bronx

Former New York Mayor and perennial Yankees fan Rudy Giuliani is seeking to become an owner of the Chicago Cubs.

Possible comparisons, in terms of sheer incongruity:

  • Sylvia Plath and Keith Richards, best friends forever;
  • Tropical Storm Whatzisname takes full aim at Bemidji, Minnesota;
  • Paris Hilton pulls a Greta Garbo and is never seen again in public. (Now this one I like.)

More to the point: Is the nation ready for a Republican presidential candidate with "baseball club owner" on his CV?

(Via Plum Crazy, where Jon notes, "At least it's not the Boston Red Sox.")

Didn't Dubya have a hand in the Rangers? Or are you being arch?

Yes, and yes.
