    Reggie White's race didn't keep him from sniffing the far right, that's for sure. J.C. Watts loved to play the GOP religion card, his illegit kids notwithstanding. The Pennsylvania GOP cleared the track nicely for Lynn Swann's gubernatorial run. Reagan made sure Doug Flutie (and his new Heisman) were present when he visited Boston. Dubya made damn sure Tom Brady was in the house for the State of the Union Address.
    And if Tiki Barber were liberal, would FNC be putting him on Tuesday mornings?
    I've always felt pro athletes strongly leaned Republican because from school on, they were a big part of the power structure - they ran the high school cliques, the college frats, etc., and could get what they wanted with a display of raw power. Black athletes who strongly identify with certain evangelical churches or preachers could easily be swayed to the right, too.
    Ironically, one of the few exceptions was Pat Tillman - he was an e-mail pal of Noam Chomsky (and maybe guys like Bill Bradley and Alan Page who always had ambitions beyond pro sports).
