It was petty and small two years ago and it’s petty and small today.
Here’s a really simple rule, whether you’re a Georgia Republican, a Texas Republican, or an Illinois Democrat. If you have a Washington, D.C., mailing address by virtue of having won an election, butt out of college football! I don’t care whether you’re a liberal or a conservative, if you work for the government and you start talking about college football, you’re going to say or do something colossally stupid!
(My thanks go out to Senator Blutarsky for calling my attention to this nonsense.)
