Go Brock Go?

Former Missouri Tiger running back Brock Olivo has announced that he is running for congress in the district Kenny Hulshof serves now.  Hulshof is vacating the seat to run for governor.

Is Brock a conservative?  I have no idea.  But this is Missouri, Brock, so you'll need to show me.

February 25, 2008, Update:  Brock Olivo might not know if he's a conservative either.  What he does know, and now the rest of us do too, is that he's never bothered to cast a vote in his life.

Brock Olivo got unwavering, fanatical support in football despite having no talent, so why shouldn't you give him your unwavering, fanatical support in politics?

Answer me this: How does one play in the NFL for FIVE years without talent? Wow. Olivo’s success due to his character is unparalleled not only in this race, but in this modern world. His work ethic, honesty, leadership, and ability to forge success have blazed a reputation that is the best among those who’s paths he’s crossed. He will do the same for the people of the ninth through his sheer determination to lead them and be the strongest voice for them in Washington. He isn’t a career politician: remember the nine scariest words: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” This isn’t him - which sets him apart from all the others in the race, R or D. The people will speak for him as he unites them and as they collectively move forward to further the vision of the ninth district. Olivo is only the 7th player in the history of Ole’ Mizzou to have his number retired for the intangibles, he was tapped into the exclusive secret honor society Mystical 7 for his representation of the University, and he’s got a network due to those accomplishments that spreads throughout the ninth district and the country. He is very smart and capable of the work ahead of him, and I can’t wait to join the effort!
