I'll take one serving of liberal guilt with my NFL
The NFL is awesome. A guy from my hometown, Billy Cundiff, just signed a $15 million contract to be a long-term kicker for the Baltimore Ravens. The players in danger of long-term brain damage make oodles more. It's a violent game, but it's awesome. Nuff said.
It's like how I eat meat. I did my time in the hog facilities of rural Iowa. Did you when you enjoy bacon and sausage?
The author is right -- we Americans are a people cruel, irrational, actively forgetful. Nietzsche couldn't devise a better culture. Sarah Palin, NFL, cable, private health care, Wall Strett -- I am a liberal, but some things are just awesome.
