Cards' La Russa, Pujols, Plunge Into Politics: Stand With Glenn Beck
Earlier this year St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa decided to announce his support of AZ SB 1070. Free country. But what is not free is La Russa's attempt to pass off his appearance (with Albert Pujols) at the offensive Glenn Beck event tomorrow as "non-political." Missourian David Kuhn of TPM writes:
[W]hile I feel a twinge of disappointment, what really jumped out at me is that La Russa says he and Pujols agreed to appear because it's a non-political event. "I made it clear when we were approached: I said, 'If it's political, I wouldn't even approach Albert with it.' I don't want to be there if it's political," La Russa told the Post-Dispatch.
(Emphasis supplied.) La Russa is full of it. And no way he does not know it. That he has attached himself to one of the most offensive figures in American Media says a lot about La Russa. I do not know if Albert Pujols has any idea what La Russa has got him into. But shame on La Russa either way. He has every right to tarnish his own image with this Beck association. But he should not be dragging Pujols into it.
Speaking for me only
