Mike Ditka, Known Buffoon and Now Crazy Old Man

Why aren’t more people ridiculing Mike Ditka for his crazy old man comments about the Redskins?

What’s all the stink over the Redskin name?

It’s so much [expletive] it’s incredible. We’re going to let the liberals of the world run this world.

It was said out of reverence, out of pride to the American Indian. Even though it was called a Redskin, what are you going to call them, a Brownskin? This is so stupid it’s appalling, and I hope that owner keeps fighting for it and never changes it, because the Redskins are part of an American football history, and it should never be anything but the Washington Redskins. That’s the way it is.

Its been the name of the team since the beginning of football. It has nothing to do with something that happened lately, or something that somebody dreamed up. This was the name, period. Leave it alone. These people are silly — asinine, actually, in my opinion.

It’s all the political correct idiots in America, that’s all it is,” Ditka said. “It’s got nothing to do with anything else. We’re going to change something because we can. Hey listen, I went through it in the 60s, too. I mean, come on. Everybody lined up, did this. It’s fine to protest. That’s your right, if you don’t like it, protest. You have a right to do that, but to change the name, that’s ridiculous. Change the Constitution — we’ve got people trying to do that, too, and they’re doing a pretty good job.

I admire him for it. Really, I think it’s tradition, it’s history, it’s part of the National Football League. It was about Sammy Baugh and all the guys who were Redskins way back then. I didn’t think that Lombardi and Halas never had a problem with it, why would all these other idiots have a problem with the name? I’m sorry. I’m not very tolerant when it comes to the liberals who complain about everything.

Seriously.  This guy has been a known buffoon since the late 80s and has been going strong since.

Anyone remember this?

It’s looking like Ricky Williams is the sane one in this picture.  (Taken in 1999, seven years after the last change to the US Constitution…  not a “pretty good job” in my opinion.)

It’s time to let Ditka get all red faced and yell about liberals at his TV, not on it.

Obama to attend Texas fundraiser on same day as Fort Hood memorial service - Conservatives4Palin -

While trying to figure out why the streets around my building will be closed off tomorrow I came across this.  I know, I know…  I shouldn’t have even clicked on it, but it’s like looking at a car crash.

First…  People still support Palin?  Why?  She’s a punch-line for anyone who owns a TV.  (Notice I didn’t say “anyone who can read” cause, you know…)

Second…  I love, love, love how things like this get spun into how much of a monster so-and-so is because they do <fill in activity here> on the day of <fill in tragedy/memorial/etc. here> as if a politician on their side of the aisle would never think of doing such a thing.

Am I the only one who remembers W continuing to read to little kids on 9-11?  I still find that reaction odd, not wrong because I don’t know what I would do, but odd because I’m guessing I wouldn’t just sit there.

I’ll bet the Palin fans will attack me for even having that opinion.

Third…  The comment that Obama will turn this into a gun control thing like it’s a bad thing baffles me…  as if the Fort Hood murders were committed with a KFC spork.

Fourth…  Reagan is dead.  Long time dead.  Get over it. —  You can’t imagine him going to a fundraiser on the day the Challenger blew up?  

From wikipedia:

On the night of the disaster, President Ronald Reaganhad been scheduled to give his annual State of the Union address. He initially announced that the address would go on as scheduled, but then postponed the State of the Union address for a week and instead gave a national address on the Challenger disaster from the Oval Office of the White House.

I thought I remembered that from when I was 9 and it took me 9 seconds to confirm it.  

So, no…  Reagan wouldn’t have gone to a fundraiser cause he was supposed to give the SOTU that night…  and any fundraisers scheduled were probably postponed because it was a national tragedy…  which leads me to…

Fifth…  While this is a national tragedy, mass murders at the hands of a gunman who obtained his weapon by questionable means like this are more and more common.

By no means am I saying this isn’t a national tragedy, but we’re so desensitized to it that it just doesn’t resonate like it used to.

And to me, people who write incredibly bad poetry in the comments about Obama using this opportunity to raise gun control are even more tone deaf than they think the president is.

If you really think more guns would have prevented this tragedy…  Fuck you.  You’re fucking stupid.  Stop breathing my air.  Again…  Fuck you.

Sixth…  Really?  Palin?

Seventh…  Back to the Reagan/Challenger analogy.  Huge difference between the day of and memorial days later.

And aren’t memorials supposed to help us move on with our lives?  What would you prefer him do?  I’d love to hear that.

Wait…  I just remembered the 6th grade level discourse in the comments.  Never mind.

Eight…  I still think it’s adorable that they think their politician would never do something like that.  Especially when they are themselves trying to raise funds.

Ninth…  Seriously…  Palin?

Tenth…  No really…  Palin?

Paradise Lost

This post is a self-indulgent piece of crap that I’m writing simply to make myself feel better.  Typing my frustration and annoyance helps me get over things instead of thinking about them in the middle of the night.

This covers something that was very important to us that will never be the same again…  the post doesn’t have much of a resolution, but neither does this situation.

My wife got called the C word, someone died, and we can never go back…

Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps dead: report -

Some people won’t speak ill of the dead…  but I will.

Fuck him.

If there actually was a God, I’d like to think God hates fag haters.
