Just Give The Scores
Sportscaster Bob Costasused the halftime of last nite’s NBC Sunday night football game to lecture the country on ridding us of the 2nd Amendment. Costas quoted extensively from an article by FOX Sports columnist Jason Whitlock calling for stricter gun control in the wake of Saturday’s murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chief’s linebacker Jovan Belcher. Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend and then committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager. The 90 second segment by the ever sanctimonious Costas ended with him quoting Whitlock saying “If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”
Wonder how the family of Nicole Brown Simpson would feel about that statement?
For the record, the gun Belcher possessed was purchased legally and licensed.
Twitter was ablaze with flabbergasted tweets from viewers most of whom suggested the halftime show shouldn’t be Costas’ private soap box.
Last week it was reported the First Family will take a 3 week Hawaiian vacation costing taxpayers 4-million dollars just as the dreaded fiscal cliff arrives. Now we find out the Obamas have 54 trees adorning the White House. That’s 50% more trees than a year ago.
Last year some 90,000 visitors viewed the White House decorations. This year the main residents of the White House won’t be there for most of the holiday season and the two main holidays.
