David Ortiz Received the Most Write-In Votes for Boston Mayor

'Murica, News

In case there was any doubt about the effect of a good October Surprise on a candidate’s chances, here comes news that David Ortiz received the most write-in votes in Boston’s mayoral election Tuesday (how many of the 560 write-ins were him, exactly, is unknown).

Unfortunately, he fell a few thousand short of actually winning, so we’ll be denied an undoubtedly amazing acceptance speech.

Didn't the Boston voters realize that if he had won he wouldn't be able to play for the Sox? Where would you rather have him? City Hall where NOTHING gets done (I'm not picking on Boston here, I'm talking about everywhere) or the ballpark?   The answer is simple.
