Lou Holtz in Hot Water at ESPN Over Strong Political ("Fire Nancy Pelosi") Comments?

Lou Holtz, an avid Republican, has to know by now that politics can make some of the suits at ESPN squeamish. So why would he get this involved in the cause?

Holtz said GOP leaders in the House are well positioned to “fire Nancy Pelosi” in November but “they can’t find the end zone without your support.” The message, filled with football references, asked supporters to give cash to help Republicans capture the majority on Nov. 2. “We are late into the fourth quarter of the midterm elections and the NRCC needs your immediate help to drive our Republican Party to victory,” the former Notre Dame coach said.
