Smoltz spoils Republicans plan to send him to Congress

Well, it was a fun idea while it lasted. John Smoltz has squashed talk of him running for a seat in the US Congress. Some Republicans in Georgia had been floating the idea of drafting Smoltz as a GOP candidate to replace the retiring Georgia Representative John Linder (R, 4th district).
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jim Galloway contacted Smoltz, who claimed he isn't interested in running for the job.
That's kind of a shame. Because there are so many places a Smoltz campaign could go. Imagine the "Smoltz for Congress" signs with a tomahawk on them. Imagine all the PC police getting hot and bothered about it. Then there are the inevitable baseball cliches that could have been used ("Vote for Smoltz the strike out taxes"). Then again, opponents could have brought up all those Divisional Championships the Braves won, with only one World Series. Oh well, it's too late now.
