(Thomas Mitchell) – Since Obama has apparently outsourced all involvement with the government shutdown and the debt ceiling to Harry Reid, he found time a couple of days ago to advise the owners of the Washington Redskins to change the team’s nickname:
“If I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team — even if they’ve had a storied history — was offending a sizable group of people, I’d think about changing it. All these mascots and team names related to Native Americans, Native Americans feel pretty strongly about it. … And I don’t know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real, legitimate concerns that people have about these things.”
Now I ask — and admittedly I’m the first to do so — which is the more offensive team name?
