The government shutdown is super fucking boring, so everybody now in Washington has turned their attention to a more important matter, the controversial name of their pretty crappy football team. Redskins is clearly a derogatory terms for Native Americans, something quite less complimentary than Chiefs or Braves, and something slightly more honorific than Hard Drinking Desert Bingo Operators. Bob Costas went on one of his politically correct rants on Sunday night football about the need to change the team name. He’s a pain in the ass, but he’s right. When all supporters have is ‘tradition’ as a defense, it’s time to concede. You used to shit your pants and suck on your momma’s tit, you figure out a way to evolve. Redskin owner Dan Snyder said as recently as a few months ago that he’d never change the name. But he will. Everybody backs down to political correctness eventually. Either because it’s the right thing to do or just because they’re tired of little short dudes on national TV calling them out.
