Where’s the love, Mr. President? Missouri is one of those battleground states year after year, election after election. It’s also home to my World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. But President Obama apparently broke with tradition by not calling the World Series’ winning manager, in this case, Tony LaRussa, after his team’s win. According to this story by my former radio station, the president’s staff even did the legwork ahead of time to get the number the president needed to make the call after the last out. But that call didn’t come. The prez is a big Chicago White Sox fan. LaRussa used to managed the White Sox.

One other thing…LaRussa did speak at that Glenn Beck rally last year…Does that matter? I highly doubt it. Just a random tidbit for the conspiracy theorists.
