President Tebow. Has a ring to it, you have to admit. As we approach the November election you can only imagine Republican party workers dreamily wishing Tim Tebow
had announced his intentions to some day chase the political game earlier, so they could, you know, have a fighting chance against President Obama (now a restrictive 1/4 with most bookies to win the race).
You have to imagine media savvy Tebow might actually navigate the tricky waters otherwise known as The Campaign trail a little better than current Republican 'hopeful' Mitt Romney. As The Mitt hit the fan over the course of the last ten days of Romney PR disasters, Tebow is grinding away happily as the NY Jets backup, always saying the right things, never looking like a disgruntled employee and handling the media, it has to be said, beautifully. Tebow and the Republican party are a match made in heaven. The lefty in arm and not in political stance could hold office as a Republican whilst remaining a (self confessed) virgin and yet still screwing women all over America (like his potential future colleague Paul Ryan, who has voted against women getting equal pay to men).
Here's the quote from an ESPN interview
that has Republican party followers dreaming of better days;
Q: With your popularity, especially in Florida, would you ever consider running for political office after you're done with football? I haven't ruled it out
A: I haven't ruled it out. Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I'd love to do. I haven't ruled out anything like that. It won't be anytime soon in my future, but it'll be something I'll at least look at and consider one day.
. Republicans, there is hope. To paraphrase Yoda and to quote Emily Dickinson; ''There is another sky''
