Children Are The Future


Over at Making It Rain, our new favorite sports blog, there is a fine post about the asinine comments made by Whoopi Goldberg concerning the self-destruction of Michael Vick.

I don’t have a lot to add. That’s the thing about this blog deal. If you let an idea or opinion percolate too long, someone else beats you to the marketplace of ideas with their take.

Last night, I started foaming at the mouth after reading about Goldberg’s statement and started the usual ranting and raving.

Like a crazy street person, I started yelling to no one in particular.

There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country.”

Are you fucking kidding me? So are lynchings. We pretty much have all agreed that regardless of your “cultural upbringing” that it is socially and morally unacceptable. You talentless hack. The funniest thing to come out of Whoopi’s mouth is Ted Danson’s dick. And he isn’t that funny.  

I yelled downstairs to the kids, “Kids, if the house was on fire, who would you make sure got out–the dog or Whoopi Goldberg?”

The Zen-like wisdom of the boys brought the whole uproar into perspective.

“Who’s Whoopi Goldberg?”

    My favorite part of her idiocy is the fact that people might think she knows ANYTHING about The South, apparently because she was in The Color Purple.

    She was born and raised in NYC, then moved to California.

    Whos Ted Danson?

    I’m guessing no one commenting here actually SAW the show yesterday. I did and it’s being blown way out of proportion and also taken out of context. She in no way defended Vick. If she had, I’d have beaten Sarcastro to the punch in calling her out. She simply stated how there’s a “culture” of illegal animal fighting rings here in the South (Cocke County, anyone?) and that Vick probably thinks it’s okay to do this sort of thing.

    And she’s 100% right.

    Isn’t the Hokie a fighting cock?

  6. Ron Says:

    I can’t seem to get a straight answer out of what a Hokie is, but I’m pretty sure that’s what an SC Gamecock is supposed to be.

    I had a woman come in to the animal hospital a few years ago with a fighting cock who had gotten its ass beat. When we tried to tell her that killing chickens for fun is bad she replied, “Only ignorant people let them fight to the death”

  8. Sarcastro Says:

    No, I didn’t see the show.
    I have testicles and a job. Both of which prevent me from sitting through an hour of The View.

    I caught it on Youtube.

    “This is not an unusual thing from where he comes from”
    “There are certain things that are indicative of certain parts of the country.”
    “What part of the country?”
    “He’s from the South. The Deep South.”
    “We have a different relationship to dogs and cats and things. It’s like the Chinese”

    The bottom line is that she slandered an entire region of the country as being complicit in dog fighting.

    Kind of like if you said, “Those Southerners are all cousin bangin inbreds. It’s indicative of that part of the country. That’s just what they do.”

    @Ron – Best high school sports match-ups ever where I grew up, just for the names – Trojans vs. Fighting Cocks (and yes, the Fighting Cocks were the Newport kids).

    I still say if Michael Vick was white, she’d have trashed him right along with Joy Behar.
