That being noted, McCain brought out the big guns yesterday in Ohio, having Brady Quinn appear at the Republican rally in hopes of swinging as many Browns voters as possible, even though it's easy to leave a hanging chad with a paper bag over your face. From the Cleveland Plain Dealer...
McCain and his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, rallied an overflow crowd Wednesday by urging Greater Clevelanders to support the underdog.Wow, what a bold and edgy statement the Plain Dealer made. Who better to deliver that message than the backup quarterback and the left tackle for a team that is 1-3? What, was the special teams coach unavailable?
And who better to help deliver that message than two members of Cleveland's favorite underdog -- make that underdawg -- team, the Browns. Quarterback Brady Quinn and left tackle Joe Thomas made a surprise appearance at the rally before roaring supporters at the Walter F. Ehrnfelt Recreation and Senior Center.
During the video of the event, McCain told Quinn "good luck on Sunday" which is a little rude of the Senator. I mean, the guy went to Notre Dame, John, you think he needs luck holding that clipboard? Give him a little credit.
Also, nothing would have made me happier than if it had been revealed during the speech that Brady had actually considered playing for Mercy College before choosing the Irish. Click it, just click it and you'll understand.
