Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

It's Getting Worse

When the people who make Bud Light think you have bad taste, that's a bad sign.

To recap where the NFL is:

- The Washington team could lose copyright protection because their mascot is blatantly racist, and they won't change it because fuck you, proles.

- The Carolina Panthers nearly played Greg Hardy, who - unlike Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice or Ray McDonald - has actually been convicted on domestic violence charges.  Only consistent outcry made them change their mind.

- Meanwhile, McDonald continues to play.

- Adrian Peterson's reinstatement has led to a backlash, including the governor of Minnesota calling it a disgrace.

Exactly how bad does Roger Goodell have to be at his job before he gets fired?
