Most sports fans remember Lynn Swann from his days as a Pittsburgh Steeler, where he helped his team win four Super Bowls in the 1970s, before retiring with a bust in Canton. But since he’s recently announced that he’s considering running for the governorship of Pennsylvania, Carpe Bonum looks at Swann’s political views, and dubs them
radical chic ultra leftwing surprisingly conventional, with the exception of the “vicious attack on bloggers” he once made:
The computer is a wonderful tool, but it should not be a way of life for everybody where you sit in front of the computer and you do nothing else.
He’ll never earn the respect of the Blogosphere with an attitude like that!
