Donald Sterling: Perhaps You Didn't Think This Through Very Well

Happy Hump Day to you all and let’s get right to the stupid of things.  There are many people in this country,
the greatest country on earth mind, who are stupid as hell, and?

They should be saying to themselves…

“Maybe I didn't think this through very well.”

First up, and of course…

Donald Sterling…

The longtime owner of the Los Angeles Clippers got into a race debate with his black/Mexican mistress and told her that she shouldn’t parade herself about in the company of loser and incredibly disliked black guys like Magic Johnson at…basketball games.

Unbeknownst to him, his former mistress, V. Stiviano, who looks like a 25 year old Joan Rivers with darker skin, recorded his remarks, and has now set him down a path that will not include owning a NBA Basketball team, a condo that he gave he gave her, nor the more than a few cars that he gifted to her, but…

Does she realize that if she keeps the condo, she’ll have to pay tax on it?  She’ll have to sell the two Bentleys to pay for the condo taxes.

These two dullards didn’t think this through very well.

Cliven Bundy…

Cliven was riding high on the free grazing grass of the government teat, and then?  He bit the teat that fed him.

Oh sure, anti-government feeling is at an all-time high, however, when one pivots from state’s rights, don’t tread on me hysteria, and anti-Obama rhetoric, and then goes full blown anti-negro, one tends to lose their standing, and even loses support from Sean Hannity…at least publicly.

Good ol’ Cliven didn’t think this through very well.

Rush Limbaugh…

In reference to the aforementioned Donald Sterling/LA Clippers fiasco…Rush Limbaugh smells a rat and a rat that smells similar to what the Obama birthers smelled.

Back in 2009...Magic Johnson intentionally had a picture of him taken at a LA Dodgers game with Stiviano, knowing that in five years, that the picture of he and V. Stiviano would make Donald Sterling erupt, and therefore, ignite his racist comments, and gain Mr. Johnson access to buy the LA Clippers at a ground floor price.

Rush didn’t think this through very well.  Mainly, because he was high on Oxycontin and Viagra when he came up with this theory, but nonetheless…

Finally…

Former Knicks player and whatever with the whatever team, Larry Johnson has chimed in on the Donald Sterling brouhaha…

“Black people your (sic) focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, own team, own League! To For Self!!”

Meaning of course, Larry Johnson, a black man, would prefer to go back to the year 1896 and Plessy v. Ferguson, rather than 1954 and Brown v. Board of Education.

Perhaps Larry Johnson didn't think this through very well.

Anyway, here’s the point.  People are stupid, and do stupid things, but also, when we see people do stupid things, we, as in the case of Rush Limbaugh and Larry Johnson, react stupidly.

I have many flaws, but if you ask those who know me, thinking things through and lacking patience are not among my flaws.

If those are my only two gifts, I will be happy, because those are two of the most important when it comes to getting things done and being an acceptable human being.

Cheers!!

I think Stiviano may come out of this with a few new boytoys from the NBA ranks to support her spending habits.

Mike: You may be right, as long as her face doesn't split open. Cheers Mike!!

My favorite this week was a story at breitbart.com.

Their theory is that the NYT waited 4 days to release Cliven Bundy's racist rant in order to embarrass Sean Hannity and other right wingers who were praising him.

I can't make that make sense: The NYT's 4-day wait on releasing the film was to give the right wing 4 extra days of going on record saying nice things about Bundy.

I LOVE that theory because it would have never even have occurred to me to consider that possibility.

Your Limbaugh story is similar.

Katy: The reason you would have never thought of something like that is because you're just too decent and honest a person to think like them.

On Sunday night it hit me that someone was going to claim that Magic and this floozy conspired to destroy Sterling so Magic could buy the team at a discount. A brilliant plan really.

I hate that they're so predictable.
