“Schilling spent no small amount of time in his career preaching the Republican mantra of smaller government and personal responsibility. He did this fresh off the historic Red Sox World Series win when he backed George W. Bush in the 2004 campaign. He did it on the stump on behalf of John McCain in 2008. Smaller government? Call me crazy, but I’m betting that wasn’t exactly what Schilling was extolling when he sat behind closed doors … pleading with the members of the Rhode Island Economic Development Corp. to put more public money behind his fantasy video game venture,” wrote Boston Globe columnist Brian McGrory.
“Apparently smaller government, in Schilling’s world, applies to other people, maybe city kids stuck in underperforming schools or disabled adults looking for help back and forth to medical appointments.”
File this under Unpredictable Phenomena, right next to sunrise and gravity. You knew it was a matter of time before this prick stepped on himself. It’s a crying shame the voters of Rhode Island took stock in his toxic bullshit.
Small government indeed.
