Five for Friday

Dustin Pedroia eats thunder, pukes lightening, is the "Gandalf of Ping Pong," gave Ian Kinsler that hernia with an intimdating text message, and is soon to be the first repeat Rooke of the Year.

You'd think that when a church admits negligence in a priest abuse case getting a damage award would be a lay-up. But, as we recently found out in the Rev. Edward Paquette case, which recently ended in a mistrial when jurors could not agree on the amount of damages, that's not always the case. I think it may have something to do with asking for anywhere from $800,000 to $14 million in damages. Narrow the range, fellas, narrow the range.

Not long ago, we brought you the story of poor Anthony Pollina, who couldn't figure out campaign finance rules, despite being "Mr. Campaign Finance." He's been told to give some illegal donations back, but he refuses. Now, some of his donors are suing to allow Pollina to keep the money. For a candidate whose slogan is "We Can Do Better," seems like the same old money grubbing politics.

We're still waiting on the announcement, but it looks like McCain will choose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his VP candidate. Sounds like a desparate attempt to swoop in and grab some of Hilary's supporters, ride on her coattails. Do pantsuits have coattails?

Lastly, your Friday Fail.

Hillary supporters are not morons and know that Calin is nothing like Clinton.

I do find humor in that McCant can no loger play the inexperience card on Obama.
