Hail to the Redskins!

Yeah, I know, not their best year, but I am no fair weather Redskins fan.

Count me among those ticked off at the nanny in chief who has decided that the best way to spend his time during a government shut down and looming debt ceiling crisis is to bitch about the need for the Washington Redskins to change their name. 

Regarding the 'Redskins' moniker, as seen on White House Dossier,
A 2002 poll by Sports Illustrated found 75 percent of American Indians have no objections. A 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center put the total at 91 percent.
Nobody cares except Obama and some liberal wonks with his ear. 

Here is my theory.  The Great Divider in Chief has done his bit to stir up racial tension with blacks, Hispanics and whites, so he has moved on to the next group of people that he thinks he can sway for his party.  I can't think of any viable explanation for Blowie to wade into something so mole hill-ish in the midst of Everest-ish problems.

So, the prez thinks the 'Skins need a new name, okay, I agree, let's call them the Maryland Redskins.  No, that's kind of feminine, how about the Landover Redskins?  Both are more geographically accurate and I would venture to guess that more people are offended by the 'Washington' part of the name, anyway.

I'm not a big 'skins fan, but I agree that barry has more important things to worry about.

Besides, it seems as if the ethnic group in question doesn't have any problems with the name.

Barry should go back to the golf course and leave well enough alone, since he isn't going to do his real job.

Once again, the idiot in chief has no fucking clue what he is talking about.
