    This is what happens when you do talk radio or video with idiots...you end up trying to please your hosts and getting yourself in trouble. In Boston a few years ago, Ted Johnson got himself in big trouble when the hosts were trashing Vince Wilfork's wife and Ted played along to be one of the guys - don't think he woke up that morning planning to insult sometime. In the Rhode Island gubernatorial race in 2010, in which Obama endorsed Linc Chafee (running as an indie), the Democratic candidate let himself be baited by a righty host into saying "Obama can take his endorsement and shove it." Made national news, and the Dem's polling cratered.

    Johnson said that in Houston and he was a regular on that show.

    Portnoy is channeling Dinesh D'Souza with that “'How about you debate me you f–king coward,' Portnoy continued."

    Birds of a moronic feather and all that.

    "Debate me" is the new "I know you are but what am I?"
    Hermes and Inky_Wretch like this.

    Until Jemelle Hill and Sally Jenkins tell me what to think about Kobe and #metoo and #IBeleiveHer I will with hold judgment

    But I won’t be holding my breath for either. It’s not a low hanging fruit story.

    That was a fun thread back in the day when I (different handle) was the one, if not the only poster to point out that the prosecution never had a case; Kobe would never have been charged if he wasn't a black celebrity; Eagle, Co was a hotbed of racism against black people; the prosecutor used the victim won't testify excuse to cover his ass; Ben Roethlisberger, etc.

    LOL at Kobe, the nerdiest guy on the planet being a rapist.

    But back on topic did you know that Dave Portnoy hired a Zimbabwean dwarf not as a Howard Stern type sideshow but because he was a talented, intelligent, funny blogger.
