A Bounty Hit on Truth

crazed junkies run amok

Bob Costas, being too small to actually carry his own opinions, used the Royal We to “quote or paraphrase” some other fella about the crazed murder/suicide of that football player:

[Costas, doubling down on the quote marks: ]
“But here,” wrote Jason Whitlock,” is what I believe. If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”


What about a Crossbow? Or a baseball bat?

What about brain injury from bounty hits? What about the mental destabilization from anabolic steroids or adderall with the added oomph of viagra?

Way to use someone else’s words to make a little Hip-Slick-n-Kewl™ addition to The Narrative while protecting your bosses, your meat-grinder of an “industry,” and “earning” your $5 million salary.

It’s not just linebackers who can make a Bounty Hit.

Yep. It was the gun’s fault. Not the brute’s.

    Oh, whitlock, right. Last time I saw that schmuck his waistline was still fighting a desperate losing battle to inflate at the same rate as his own opinion of his own opinions.

    Because according to the left, guns are REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELY hard to get…

    If there had been no gun, only one would be dead – The hulk would not have beaten himself to death… he’d be really sorry, though.

    Whitlock and Costas are the worst kind of lefty scolds. They think their success in one field (sports) means we all want and need to hear their opinions on everything.

    I’d call them both putzes, but is that the correct plural for putz?

    “If Kasandra Perkins had possessed a gun, she would be alive today.”
    There, fixed it.

    I mean, without a gun or without any other kind of weapon, how could a huge-ass football player even harm a woman?

    Maybe Costas can go from sportscaster to political pundit like Olbermann.
    (What? No, not like Reagan. He went on to elected office, not on to obscurity via wanker radio.)

    According to Memidex, Oct 8, 2012 – “putzes” is a plural form of “putz” (general anatomy): the male organ of copulation. Synonyms: member [euphemism], penis, phallus, cock …

    Of course, there are other schools of thought that would postulate that “putz-es” would be the proper form.

    And then naturally, other, more Germanic tribes would challenge that “putzen” is the real deal. I guess the Amish like that one a lot.

    Let’s step back a ad and look at the facts: Jovan was a football player, big, strong, mean, nasty, very much used to banging up people on the field.

    If he didn’t have a gun, he would have beaten her to death. His own exit might have been more difficult.

    God made men and women. Colonel Colt made them equal.

    See, a gun is the only thing that could have equalized Javon and Kasandra. Lucky for Javon he had one, else we might today be, uh… ummm…
