John McCain — the Arizona senator and 2008 presidential candidate — blasted the Dodgers on Friday via Twitter, saying many of the same things that Diamondbacks fans were saying Thursday. Although, "spoiled brats" is particularly delicious.

If you missed the hubbub, the Diamondbacks had asked the Dodgers not to celebrate on their field, should they clinch the NL West during their trip to Chase Field. Technically, the Dodgers obliged. Instead, they retreated to their clubhouse before a pack of them dashed out to the outfield pool and did cannonballs like Little Leaguers.
People were mad in Arizona, as you'd expect. Especially given the not-so-jolly relationship the two teams have. L.A. got ripped in the Arizona Republic by columnist Dan Bickley under the straight-to-the-point headline, "The Dodgers are idiots." But getting condemned by a U.S. Senator is a whole 'nother level.
Now we have to wonder, which famous Dodgers fan will retort to McCain on their behalf? It needs to someone other than Magic Johnson, now that he's the owner. We need a vocal third party, who can match McCain's clout. There's not really anyone from the political arena, so we need a Hollywood person ...
Got it! Alyssa Milano. McCain vs. Milano — it has a nice ring to it.
