    She didn't say what you claim she said.

    A certain Republican candidate for president says things 100 times worse than that on an almost daily basis, and millions of Americans think he's a hero for it.

    She barely mentioned "foreigners" in a reasonable opinion of about a half dozen reasons why she doesn't think Klinsmann is doing a good job.

    She didn't?

    I also believe the way he has changed and brought in a bunch of these foreign guys is just not something I believe in.

    I didn't say he was my hero. He's far from it. But "these foreign guys" has a negative ring to it that again, would have gotten a politician in hot water.

    Is it possible to say, for example, "I do not believe State U. should rely so much on JUCO players" without having people think you hate all JUCO players?

    Of course it is. And that's pretty much where she was going with her point on foreigners.

    Not liking the changes implemented by "foreign guys" isn't the same as not liking foreigners!

    It's like how Baron can love the WWE's racist stereotypes and story lines, but not have an ounce of racism in him.

    Hilarious. Yuppie, hipster icon saying this. Lot of angst in Brooklyn and The Castro today.
