Barack Obama will be joined at an event today(Monday @ Steinbrenner Field in Tampa) by several members of the World Series-bound Tampa Bay Rays at an event marking the first day of early voting in the Sunshine State.
Pitcher David Price will introduce Obama, according to his campaign. Outfielder Fernando Perez, and teammates Carl Crawford, Cliff Floyd, Jonny Gomes, B.J. Upton, Edwin Jackson, and Jason Bartlett will also appear on stage.
These guys can do whatever they want. I guess my main beef is this: Obama hasn't even been coronated yet and he is everywhere. The American Federation of Teachers is running pro-Obama ads on the Rush Limbaugh Program. The country music station (both types of music - country AND western) is running ads apologizing for having to run Obama ads.
The Rays were an Obama-free zone untill now. The few sanctuaries left are Christian radio, like 90.5 Spirit FM in Tampa. That's WBVM-FM as in Blessed Virgin Mary.
If Obama everywhere now, just imagine when he gets real power.
