I turned on Mark Levin's radio show
(XM 166) somewhere after 6:15pm and he had a guest who turned out to be Curt Schilling. I couldn't tell who it was for awhile, they were talking about the Scott Brown campaign in Massachusetts. Still not knowing who it was I thought wow, this person can really talk (not everyone on radio is a natural talker but this guy was) and highly intelligent, eg can translate thoughts into words in a meaningful and coherent way.
- Then I heard him say, "I was a player rep for 10 or 11 years in Philadelphia, you know for Major League Baseball," and shortly thereafter Mr. Levin addressed him as "Curt." Curt Schilling, of course. He identified himself as independent politically, agrees with more republican issues than democrat. Became more aware of the political process (although doesn't anticipate running for office at this time) when he realized media portrayals of the US mid east conflict were completely different from the reality he experienced on his 10 day trip there.
