Curt Schilling says he’ll run for Senate in 2018. As long as his wife says it’s OK.
Curt Schilling has been toying with the idea of launching a political career lately. I’d say “planning” or “investigating” a political career if he had done more than post dumb political memes on his social media platforms and rant incoherently on talk radio and cable TV, but at the moment we’ll have to just call it “toying.”
That may be about to change, however!
Curt Schilling on 2018 US Senate bid vs E Warren: "I've made my decision. I'm going to run. But - but - I haven't talked to Shonda, my wife"— Ted Nesi (@TedNesi) October 18, 2016
All sensible people would check with their spouse before mounting such a run, of course, and I will thus give Schilling good family man points for noting that if Shonda doesn’t want him to run, he won’t. For now we’ll set aside the notion that the folks who are likely to make up Schilling’s core constituency likely view such caveats as the behavior of a weak and henpecked Beta Male or whatever.
I do hope Shonda consents, however. I certainly don’t want Curt Schilling in command of anything other than a fastball and slider, so I would root for the people of Massachusetts to send him to electoral defeat, but boy howdy, would I love to cover that campaign.
