Mullet Man and Zorn


At this point, I suppose it is inevitable that, when we wake up Wednesday morning, Barack Obama or John McCain will be the president-elect of the United States.


Imagine, instead, waking to the news that an NFL coaching ticket had won. How about Jeff and Jim? As in Fisher-Zorn. How cool would Fisher be as president? For one thing, there's that mustache. Crime blogger extraordinaire Emil Steiner points out that Fisher would be the first president in, like, a century to have facial hair. (And I'm pretty sure that no presidential candidate has a mullet in his past.) Fisher also would be a great president. He's steady, he's a winner and he does a lot with the talent he has. Strong on D, solid on O. Just what America needs, right? The big drawback would be that he's a soporific cliche-meister. That's where Zorn comes in. He doesn't really have enough experience yet for the top job, but he's got more stories than the brothers Grimm. And talk about inspirational..."Stay medium" could be the 21st-century edition of "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." (In addition, Zorn could turn to Prime Minister Yah Mon for sage counsel.)

So Fisher-Zorn it is. You may disagree and that's fine. Just don't try to sell me on Mike Singletary. America is not ready for a pantsless pep talk.
