Grantland's Bryan Curtis went out to the wilds of Worcester, Massachusetts (not really that wild) and spent some time with everyone's favorite Twitter lunatic, Jose Canseco.
Of course, being that this is the narrative of Canseco, Jose went and said something surprising:
Curtis makes the point that "if you know Canseco, you know the manipulative blockhead can transform instantly into a brilliant savant" in the context of his larger piece, which argues that Jose Canseco is trolling us. He's right, and this is one of those times.
Despite opening the conversation by asking who is running against Barack Obama for President — cue memories of that time when DMX didn't know who Obama was — not only does Jose know who he is, he has coherent and not unintelligent comments about Romney's platform and politics overall. This is from the same guy who, out of nowhere, inaccurately tweeted that Al Gore was dead. But Canseco is not DMX; he hasn't disconnected from reality, or left society in frustration. Instead, he seems to be playacting one of the weirdest explorations of American celebrity ever undertaken. And there's no sign that it will stop being fun to watch any time soon.
