One thing is for sure, we will hear declarations by all the candidates that will have us scratching our heads. Why? Well let's just say that the leaders of the GOP race for president have been known to stretch the truth a little bit.
"In a recent New York Times article, statistics from PolitiFact are conveniently organized to help us visualize two things that are already well known: First, that reality has a liberal bias. And second, that the more bullshit GOP candidates spew, the more successful they become.
OK, so we know that GOP politricksters lie, but all politicians lie. So this is nothing new. What's scary is what they lie about these days, and how often they get away with it. It's gotten so bad that the press doesn't even bother to report about the lies anymore. (Dog bites man. Nothing to see here folks; move along.)
Let's see what happens after tomorrow night.
Finally, congrats to Serena for winning the SI Sportsperson of the Year award. I think that it was well deserved.
As a 4.0 tennis player who understands how difficult the game is, let me say for the record that what Serena Williams did this year on the tennis court at her age was incredible.
And while I congratulate Serena, I would like to say shame on the Los Angeles Times for their offensive cover featuring Serena and a horse, and then comparing the two. (They have since taken down the original picture due to the backlash they got from social media)
I must confess that I admire Serena even more because I know much she is hated by certain folks in the majority population. They have hated her for years, and she has been the greatest female tennis player in the world for everyone of those years. That, to me, is just awesome.
Excelling in spite of the hateration. That's true field Negro behavior as far as I am concerned.
So now, today, she is being compared to a horse for top honors for Sportsperson of the Year. (P.E.R.S.O.N.)
@hellresidentNY I can't believe someone at @latimes thought it was a good idea to pit a black woman against a horse for "Sportsperson."
@latimes We’ve changed the headline and photo on this story to treat it with greater sensitivity. Thank you for your feedback.
