Tom Cole Warns the Redskins….
Republican Rep Tom Cole is unhappy with the Washington Redskins name and has sent a letter with Senator Cantwell urging them to change it.
…Redskins respond by essentially saying “Well it’s okay to use the word ‘colored’ for black people, because the NAACP uses ‘colored people’ in their name.”
Look, when people as diverse in their political viewpoints as Maria Cantwell and Tom Cole start sending you threats of this sort, it’s probably time to shut up and reevaluate your position, or at least moderate your tone. Throwing a barb back at John Boehner’s hatchman is a horrible idea.
Doubly so when Congress is actually willing to speak ill of the NFL, something that happens about as often as Congressional pay cuts.
