Because the requirements for governing a state do not include rigorous intellectual challenges such as figuring out how to pour piss out of a boot, numerous governors are announcing that they will not allow Syrian refugees into their states, which federal law clearly states they are forbidden from doing.

Breitfart condemns the wrong Loretta Lynch for being on the right side in the Whitewater mess.

ETA: They left the post up, with a sentence at the end saying that it was a different Loretta Lynch.

I am old enough to remember when Ben Stein occasionally made sense. I am not, however, old enough to remember when any intelligent person gave credence to the image of the gigantic inherently scary black man made even more terrifying by the lethal effects of the Killer Drug Marijuana.

Sports owners are such scum that Donald Trump's threatened purchase of the Buffalo Bills would not appreciably lower the tone of the group. (Though it would endanger Dan Snyder's cherished position as Biggest Asshole in the NFL.) The current Horrible Example is basketball owner Donald Sterling, who has capped a career rich in racism and sexism by getting caught telling his Black outside squeeze that she should act whiter and not associate with Those People. Feministing discusses him and the Rich White Guys and wannabe Rich White Guys who defend him.

Woof woof

There was a famous asshole in rasff who knew he was an asshole. He once mentioned that he was good enough at his day job (computers) to be an asshole there too. Richard Sherman reminds me of him.

Richard Sherman may be the best cornerback in the NFL. Last weekend he saved the Seattle Seahawks' win on the last play, and, interviewed immediately after (a bad idea), brayed that he was the greatest and the player he beat to the ball was a loser.

It was novel only in that it's usually the wide receivers who act like that (Choad Johnson, Terrell Owens). It certainly does not follow the ideal of sportsmanship that we attempt to inculcate the young with, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has been doing damage control but will probably not punish Sherman, at least not enough to keep him from playing in the Super Bowl, where they need him.

Sherman is black. I think the rasff asshole is white, though I've never met him or seen a picture of him. I'm mentioning him to uphold the goodole liberal idea that it's never safe to assume that members of a particular group cannot do a particular thing. (A friend of mine was recently mansplained at by a woman.)

Recovering NFL fan Ta-Nehisi Coates has a couple of posts about the whole mess, very much worth reading (I said it was Ta-Nehisi Coates, didn't I?), that discuss the racial aspects and informed me that Sherman is a significantly more interesting person than I had thought.
