Ana Marie Cox was the founder of Wonkette, and she's been contributing to The Daily Beast recently. She was Rachel Maddow's fill-in a few years back.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:28pm -Ken:

Cory, I like yours too, but there is no Hootie and the Blowfish on it so I am confused.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:28pm glenn:

thanks, ken. it's a little schizophrenic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:28pm -Ken:

Trump hasn't gotten into comic books has he? hopefully no one has told him Captain America is black.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:30pm melinda:

@Ken I don't even want to know what that might be...
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:32pm glenn:

i think there is a silver lining. the republicans are eating themselves into a death spiral.

I question the assumption that being marginalized means you never take a break from politics.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:34pm glenn:

ummmm. doug flutie is probably the best quarterback the c.f.l. ever had. there's more than one pro football league, ya know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:35pm melinda:

Doug Flutie is a funny name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:35pm Carmichael:

3 down football is an interesting concept.
  Thu. 9/28/17 6:35pm Bad bob:

Well, I consume approximately 0 media outside wfmu so I didn't realize everything else is saturated in trump... But thanks or not being so! Except this of course... Which I'll likely stop listening too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:35pm -Ken:

That's right Glenn, and let us not forget the XFL.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:36pm cory:

XFL is/was the ladies in undies league?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:36pm -Ken:

Next week, TARFU goes live, or half live, so there may be call-ins
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:37pm glenn:

three downs, a bigger field, and a bigger ball. it's a better game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:37pm Carmichael:

And guys running forward before the snap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:38pm -Ken:

XFL was the WWF's off-season football league.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:38pm Carmichael:

Arena football is an interesting concept.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:39pm cory:

oh yeah, that one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:39pm Carmichael:

Trump was also an owner of a USFL football team (via daddy's money).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:40pm cory:

hope Dale Jr. gets a mention
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:40pm glenn:

i think everybody knows why they're taking the knee. the problem is, the dumbass fans either don't care, or are filled with seething rage over them uppity negroes being uppity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:41pm cory:

glenn, my uncle doesn't.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:43pm glenn:

and to be sure, not every n.f.l. fan is a dumbass. this is trump dog whistling to his base again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 6:44pm -Ken:

The USFL led directly to Trump's presidency, according to wikipedia: The collapse of the USFL had a particularly positive effect on the NFL's Buffalo Bills. The Bills, as a small-market NFL franchise, were particularly hard-hit by the USFL; as its players from the moderately successful early 1980s era aged, the team was unable to find quality replacements for them on the free agent market, as the USFL was drawing away much of pro football's top talent (including Bills running back Joe Cribbs and the team's planned franchise quarterback of the future, Jim Kelly). With subpar talent, the Bills went 4–28 over the course of 1984 and 1985, and average attendance at Rich Stadium plummeted to under 30,000 fans per game, putting the team's long-term viability in jeopardy. When the USFL collapsed, the Bills signed a large number of former USFL players: Kelly, Kent Hull, Ray Bentley, special teams coach Bruce DeHaven, general manager Bill Polian and coach Marv Levy, which, combined with the high draft picks compiled during the USFL years, would allow the Bills to rise to perennial Super Bowl contenders by the early 1990s. In 2014, after founding owner Ralph Wilson died, Trump tried to purchase the Bills, but was largely rebuffed in favor of Terry Pegula due to his past ties to the USFL; Trump's failure to purchase the Bills was a major factor in his ultimately successful decision to run for President of the United States the next year.[30]

I'll never watch football again ...

@glenn-The vast majority seem to be to me.... I'm a barfly but I stay home this time of year
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:47pm glenn:

i personally can't watch the n.f.l.. it bores me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:49pm cory:

football is better than baseball, but that isn't saying much. (if you subtract the massive brain damage)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 6:50pm cory:

Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 6:51pm glenn:

Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 7:00pm glenn:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 7:00pm cory:
