Via NRO, the title of this post refers to the outrage over the name ‘Redskins’. Something I have covered here. Reason I bring this up is that Rachel Maddow, Slate Magazine, Mother Jones, and other progressive Democrats have come out and said they will stop calling Washington’s NFL football team the ‘Redskins’ even though 79% of America says they’re fine with the name.
Apparently President Obama didn’t get the memo. I doubt any of the above mentioned people who think the name is racist will have the temerity to call him on this.
