I never capitalize the names of people for whom I have no respect, so bob costas must now be included among them. This very small man found it necessary to aerate his personal liberal guilt by using a half time period this weekend to sound off on his personal opinion about the REDSKIN logo and how “offensive” it is to NATIVE AMERICANS. After this issue raised its head once again with obama offering his unsolicited opinion, and after Lanny Davis the attorney for the REDSKINS stating that surveys had shown that antagonism to the logo was insignificant, costas had to take time that he is being PAID FOR to do whatever in sports broadcasting, to take a position against it. How much guilt does he personally feel about what he or his own ancestors might have done to our NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS that he finds it necessary to rail against a sports logo? It seems that most liberals use their own person ANGST and GUILT to help others decided about how they should feel about everything they deem not politically correct. Of course one must note that obama’s “HOMETOWN?” Chicago Blackhawks, and the Atlanta Braves, and the Cleveland Indians have not of late been the target of the guilt-ridden liberals, at least not to the extent as to what costas said.
Perhaps the San Diego Padres offends the clergy. The New York Yankees might offend every Southerner. The San Francisco Giants and Tennessee Titans might offend the “height deprived. All of the teams whose logos contain animal or fish names could offend PETA aficionados. And on it could go.
It is time that the liberals contain their OWN GUILT and not involve the rest of us. Perhaps costas has outlived his “usefulness” as a broadcaster/commentator since I doubt who ever pays his salary wants to be part of his own PERSONAL liberal guilt battles. This is not the first time he has interjected “political correctness” where it does not belong.
