The Republic is saved!

Craig James is all in on that Senate run, bitchez.  Happy holidays, bowl viewers.

(Oh, and note the change in tone from ESPN, which manages to reference both Mike Leach and Sherwood Blount in the article.)

    Yes, that is a decidedly (and quote suddenly) icy tone in that article, isn’t it?

    “In his book “Gameday,” James wrote: “I’m not going to sit here and tell you I never received a nickel during my playing days. But I can say with certainty that no benefits were ever extended to me from anyone associated with the SMU administration.”

    So…you cheated.

      Yeah, it turns out that it’s illegal either way, buddy. That’s like saying, “I’m not going to tell you that I didn’t buy some cocaine, but I never bought any cocaine from undercover cops.” Well, it’s still illegal.

        Yeah, and what about the five hookers Craig James? Hookers vote too.

          I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I will never receive a nickel from special interests to buy my vote during my Senate career. But I can say with certainty that no benefit will be accepted by me until it has been laundered through a third party, just like I did it in college.

    Well they just put it all out there in a pretty little package.

    What does it say about us that we’d rather have this rocket surgeon getting a shot a governing us than broadcasting our sporting events? (Believe me when I say that I’d rather have this rocket surgeon getting a shot a governing us than broadcasting our sporting events).
    Are we all just hoping he loses and we never hear from him again? (Believe me when I say that I’m just hoping he loses and we never hear from him again).
    But, I think, the alternative is terrifying-er.

    He’s against it, I mean come ON his team got it!!! And he only took a few nickels during his playing days….

    ooooh wait, the actual death penalty? Dunno, but if you are a republican running for senate in Texas, I pretty much got an idea what his position is.

    Craig James: Wank We Can!

    The fact that people like Craig James feel compelled to run and have people encouraging them to run indicates how screwed up the political system is.

      don’t corrupt weasels have a right to representation in this great country of ours? Is this not still AMERICA?????

      Craig James: Because you know you would have taken SMU’s money, too.
