The Spot-On Quote Of The Day… [UPDATED]

30 April 2013 @ 11:06

…is awarded to Protein Wisdom commentator Benedick for his description of the historic [‘histrionic’?] day that was yesterday, when an aging, mediocre basketball player came out of the ball closet:

…the “National Day of Let’s All Treat Jason Collins Like Rosa Parks and Matthew Shepard Had A Love Child But Not Like They Had Sex Because Hetero Sex Is Heteronormative So Like They Had A Magical Child, A Magical, Wonderful Child With No Cultural Baggage . . . Like Obama.”

Obama-Prissy-2009-byCharlesDharapak-ext01b-xSpot-on.

Ridicule them often; ridicule them hard [in a non-faggy way, of course].

One of the debates that ensued in the Comments section at PW was whether or not President Ab-Fab would invite the heretofore obscure Jason Collins to The Whitey House.

I think Barry will, because, as a basketball playah himself, he’s long had an interest in finger rolls, buzzer beaters, slam dunks, and man-to-man defense, IYKWIMAITYD.

I can leave without quoting part of Jeff’s take on this:

Americans shocked, amazed! Straight, ordinary-sized, single-hand dribblers with no game whatever hardest hit. Not by the bravery, so much…but rather by the realization that not only aren’t they good enough to play pro ball, but they’ve been shown-up in the fabulous department, as well.

What would Dennis Rodman do???…frankly, I don’t wanna know.

UPDATE at 1919…

In his depressed conference today, the President Mom Jeans said this [tip of the fedora to Jeremy Austin over at Viral Read][emphasis mine]:

And given the importance of sports in our society, for an individual who has excelled at the highest levels in one of the major sports to go ahead and say, this is who I am, I’m proud of it, I’m still a great competitor, I’m still seven foot tall and can bang with Shaq and deliver a hard foul — and for I think a lot of young people out there who are gay or lesbian who are struggling with these issues, to see a role model like that who is unafraid, I think it’s a great thing.

‘Bang with Shaq’?!?…I didn’t know Shaq was on the downlow…wow, shows to go that my Gaydar doesn’t always work.

    Rodman? Please. Don’t. Ever. Go. There.

    Rodman has now been out rodmaned.

    Witness the Cultural Hegemony in all its naked glory. I suppose I should make a crack about “ball handling” now, but all of the predictable shameless emoting has become such a self-parody that I just don’t have the heart for it any more.

    Yawn. A had been from the fourth pro sports league felt revealing his private life is important. Wake me when something important happens.

    “Ridicule them often; ridicule them hard …”

    Yes, indeed, the one thing from the Alinskyite canon we should turn back on the Left … with extreme prejudice.

      Exactly, because the tactic is not immoral.
