Colin Kaepernick: The NFL's Newest Blithering Idiot [CBD]

CDR M touched on this last night, but there is nothing like pouring it on when the target is this easy to hit!

I don't know who Clay Travis is, because I don't follow football much, and don't much like it either. But I like this Davis fellow, who sounds suspiciously like a Moron, in the good way. Here he claims that Colin Kaepernick Is an Idiot, and backs it up with some pretty damning analysis.

Once you make the decision to enter the marketplace of ideas, in my opinion, you're obligated to put forward a coherent reason for your decision-making if you want to be taken seriously. Otherwise, I can feel free, thanks to this same first amendment that you're using to gain attention, to pronounce you an daft prima donna whose football talents have so deteriorated you aren't even capable of beating out Blaine freaking Gabbert to be quarterback. As if that weren't enough I can also say that based on your Twitter feed you look like a lost and psychologically unstable individual.

Kaepernick is the latest in a series of high-profile athletes/entertainers/trained monkeys who are under the mistaken impression that the number of followers they have on Twitter or Instagram is somehow correlated with their intelligence and their ability to provide insightful comments on a whole range of topics outside of their incredibly narrow areas of expertise.

If I want to learn how to cry on command or look pensively off into the distance or take steroids to bulk up for an important event or lip sync an entire concert or throw a tight spiral wobbling wounded duck, I will, absolutely, contact Brad Pitt or Meryl Streep or Madonna or Matt Damon or Colin Kaepernick.

But for political or cultural analysis I think that sticking with the far less attractive but far better informed among us is probably a good idea. And who would those people be? Judging by the blather coming out of our most famous among us, it will probably be a step up if I go to the nearest middle school and ask the kid who is reading in the library and doesn't have paste crumbs on his chin.


And speaking of injustice.....
