Joseph Farah, Superfan?
Topic: WorldNetDaily
In a strange little June 10 WorldNetDaily column suggesting that there is a "Hillary curse" on the New York Yankees -- that the reason the Yankees haven't won the World Series since 2000 is because Hillary Clinton was elected a senator from New York that year -- Joseph Farah declared that he is "the real brand of Yankee fan, not the fan of convenience like Hillary." Judging by the link Farah supplied, his evidence to support his assessment of Hillary's Yankees fandom comes from the dubiously sourced Hillary-bashing quote book "I've Always Been a Yankees Fan."

The problem is, Farah's wrong. Hillary is on record as far back as 1994 -- long before she sought the New York Senate seat -- as being a Yankees fan.

(Coincidentially, we spent a few hours of our recent mini-sabbatical in Yankee Stadium watching said Yankees lose to Oakland, while Farah merely watched it on TV. So there.)
