Governor Bill Richardson, who has the best commercial so far this election season, really stepped in it big time the other day. Richardson claims to be a creature that does not exist in nature: both a Red Sox and Yankees fan.

The Governor said, “My favorite team has always been the Red Sox,” he said, then added, “I’m also a Yankees fan. . . . This is the thing about me. I can bring people together.”

First Friday translation: I love the Hatfield’s and the McCoy’s, and dine with them regularly. (Take that, Hillary! Cubs and Yankees fan, my ass!)

If this is true, it is clearly a sign of the apocalypse. However, since it can not be true, we are safe. For now, this myth will ride off into the sunset on the back of a winged unicorn and be forgotten. Unless, that is, he starts polling more than the atomic weight of hydrogen.
