TRONGSVILLE, OH — Cleveland Browns QB Brady Quinn and Left Tackle Joe Thomas endorsed the GOP nominee during a McCain-Palin joint rally outside Cleveland Wednesday.
Palin introduced the surprise endorsers at the end her speech today to cheers from the more than 2,000 supporters in the crowd.
Quinn introduced McCain and spoke briefly about how his service to the nation and time as a POW inspired him because he kept “fighting for freedom.”
“Too often times we label people heroes and get caught up in the moment but tonight we have a real hero amongst us,” Quinn said. “This is a man who endured great adversity yet remained loyal to his nation, a man who would not forsake his country…we need heroes like this to inspire us and to remind us that we are the greatest nation.”
He added that, “to me, Senator McCain embodies the American spirit which is a lifetime of patriotism and service to this country, first in the military and then in the Senate.”
Fair enough, but while you're sitting on the bench collecting millions, don't lecture me on your politics. I don't want to hear your political opinion. Spend more time increasing your arm strength and STFU about politics.
