Get your politics off my sports page!

   I am not a Democrat, I am not a Republican, I am not Independent. I am what you call the "Lesser of two evil partys". I'm sure there are a lot of people who feel the same way. But do I need to know what you are. What your views are?

   So the big new is that Vice Presedential candidate Palin's 17 year old daughter is pregnant. Do I really care. The only way this should show up on Sportline is if it was an unknown member of the Dallas Cowboys who did the deed! The only time we should hear the word Conservative on this site is when you are talking about the play calling of Tennessee's Phillip Fullmer because he has a quarterback who can't complete a pass to anyone wearing an orange jersey. The only time we should hear the word Liberal on this site is when you are describing the liberal amount of passing yards that the Cincinnati Bengals defense is going to give up this year. The only time Barack Obama's name should be mentioned on this site is when  Harvard has just handed Columbia a butt whuppin' in football. The only time we should hear John McCain on this site is when he was the asked to do the coin toss at the Army-Navy game, and was then seen in the skybox sipping 18 year old scotch and rooting on Army.

   I don't care about your political views. Political views and opinions go hand in hand. Everybody has one, and everyone thinks everbody elses stinks. Is your views on the candidates going to sway me one way or the other, I should hope not. That would just make me a follower. To vote for someone based on someone elses views is ridiculous. I am tired of this political race. I am tired of the negativity that comes with a presedential campaign. All I ask is, take it somewhere else. I come here to read about sports. I don't care about your politics, world news, and all the other pointless, mindless dribble that some people come up with. What song are you listening too? Who's your babys daddy? etc.... Take it over to Fox or MSNBC, I'm sure they have plenty of server space to accomodate you!
