From former Indianapolis Star columnist Ruth Holliday's blog I gleaned this tidbit about Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning:
Manning also donated money recently to Fred Thompson's GOP presidential campaign, $2,300. Their tie is Tennessee, Thompson's home state. Manning graduated from University of Tennessee, as did Mrs. Manning, who is a native of Memphis and a generous volunteer.
As Mellencamp says, "ain't that America?"
Let's hope Peyton doesn't start shilling for vehemently anti-gay religious wrong groups and endorsing an Indiana constitutional amendment to ban same-sex civil marriage like Colts coach Tony Dungy.
