Two boys in Boston were playing baseball when one of them was attacked by a rabid Rottweiler.

Thinking quickly, the other boy ripped a board off of a near by fence, wedged it into the dog's collar and twisted it, breaking the dog's neck.

A newspaper reporter from the Boston Herald witnessed the incident and rushed over to interview the boy.

The reporter began entering data into his laptop, beginning with the headline:

"Brave Young Red Sox Fan Saves Friend From Jaws Of Vicious Animal".

"But I'm not a Red Sox fan," interjected the little hero.

"Sorry" replied the reporter. "But since we're in Boston, I just assumed you were."

Hitting the delete key, the reporter began: "John Kerry Fan Rescues Friend From Horrific Dog Attack"

But I'm not a John Kerry fan either," the boy responds.

The reporter says, "I assumed everybody in this state was either for the Red Sox or John Kerry, or Ted Kennedy. What team or person do you like?"

"I'm a Texas Ranger fan and I really like George W. Bush" the boy says.

Hitting the delete key, the reporter begins again:

"Arrogant Little Conservative Bastard Kills Neighbor's Beloved Family Pet"
