DC Mayor: Redskins Must Change Name
Here’s Vincent Gray. Vincent Gray is the mayor of Washington, DC, said this last night.
GRAY: I think it has become a lightning rod, and I would love to be able to sit down with the team — and I’m happy to do that, to sit down with the team — and others who are concerned with this and see if a change can be made. Obviously our basketball team did that, you know, with the Bullets being changed to the Wizards.
RUSH: Did you know the basketball team in Washington used to be called the Bullets? They said that was offensive, so they changed it to the Wizards. Honestly! There’s the mayor saying, “Yeah, we gotta get rid of Redskins.” They’re on the warpath now, no pun intended. That’s… Oh, gee. I don’t know. It wasn’t anybody was offended by the Bullets. It was that Bullets conjured up negative images that encouraged kids to like bullets. So went the thinking.
By the way, this thing about Obama and usurping the Constitution?
