“People in Cleveland aren't shocked by this at all. The entire Cavs organization (and the city to an extent) went out of their way to keep Gloria's escapades quiet.

“The inmates are running the asylum, and i five years, the NBA will be like baseball -- scratching its head wondering why attendance is down and why they will have to beg people to attend.

The primary product is COMPETITION not the players. Look at how the NFL thrives with parity and a system that is focused on equality. The polarization of the league is happening on Stern's watch. Having only a handful of teams that realistically have a shot at a ring is what has destroyed baseball. Why should fans of the smaller market, "fly over" teams even care when they have shot? The "super teams" won't attract the attention of disenfranchised fans in the "fly over" markets because the players of today are perceived as punks.

Stern got lucky by focusing on marketing the players during the 80s because you had two historical franchises with dynamic supporting casts and likeable players. The players of today really aren't likeable -- they're laughable.

Look at Lebron James. He's an egotistical, self-absorbed product of some crackhead that has no sense of the larger world around him. "The Decision?" Have you checked out the website of his marketing company - www.lrmr.com? Bahahahahaha. Yeah that's a marketing company I want representing my business interests?

For all those that said Lebron made a "bidness" decision, remember that his "decision" single-handedly ruined his "brand" for life. James used to have a positive public image....used to.”

“The inmates are running the asylum. That is so right. Not to be too picky or anything, but James' agency is www.lrmrmarketing.com. He represents Chris Paul among other players.”

Tea and Empathy: The Connection Between High Unemployment, Record Foreclosures, and Right Wing Rage

Commented Apr 17, 2010 at 10:26:06 in Politics

“Keep in mind that the teabaggers' rage is also the result of:

1. The crushing disappointment in realizing that everything they believed and supported for the last 8 years is the primary cause of where we are at right now. Think about it. They have to direct their anger, rage and feelings of hopelessness somewhere -- other than at themselves. Most people don't have the ability to appropriately and accurately assess themselves.

2. Knowingly adopting a nickname associated with a college prank that occurs when one passes out.”

“"The crushing disappointment in realizing that everything they believed and supported for the last 8 years is the primary cause of where we are at right now"

I don't think you are living in reality. The majority of us look at Bush as a terrible President that was spending us to bankruptcy . . . now the current policies are to multiply that irresponsible spending.

If you are under 35, you should really be worried that both parties are leading us to the same place and your future is seriously in question.”

“Has anyone noticed an amazing trend among those that voted for and supported Bush and Cheney in 2000 and especially in 2004?

If you talk to them, they now say things like:

"I'm a libertarian."
"Well, both parties are the enemy."
"My guy wasn't nominated so I didn't have a good choice."
"Bush was a better choice than Gore or Kerry. Imagine how bad things would be if they were elected." (this one is a personal fave.)
"I didn't agree with everything Bush did."
"The Dems were obstructionists and sure although the Reps had power, they didn't do certain things they should have because the Dems were in the way and they didn't want to have to listen to them whine about it."”

“Does anyone else get the feeling that Rush is recongizing his impending irrelevancy and keeps trying desperately to stay in the news by upping the level of his nonsensical, "controversial" remarks?

More and more it looks as though Rush is the guy who is desperate to be the life of the party but is no match for the more interesting, charismatic and substantive guy with the throng around him. As a result, Rush is clamoring for attention, jumping up and down, flailing his arms and "HELLO? HERE I AM. HERE I AM. Look at me, I have a feather duster crammed up my a$$ and I'm shaking it in time with 'Push it' . Cmon look at me. Look at me. I'm important too."”

“You would have thought the Wall St. crowd would have learned from the backlash over AIG.

Apparently, the masses stirring was only enough to get the AIG people to wake the F up.

It will take something else, some other action, to shake them from their insulated sense of entitlement and aristocracy (and these people really do look down on and have contempt for the common man).

Mark my words, something will happen on Wall Street. It's only a matter of time before someone who is frustrated, angry, desperate and a bit unstable snaps.”

“I was thinking the exact same thing.

90% of the populace is outraged and Capt. Anal Cyst -- de factor head of the Republican Party -- is siding with the 10% who see nothing wrong with this.

I think Rush is using again. I really do. He is really coming off as even more nonsensical than usual. I used to think his takes were calculated and at least well thought out.

But lately, he seems to be in complete tantrum/meltdown mode. He swinging his arms wildly, flailing, hoping to make contact with something, anything.

For a guy that just signed a lucrative contract, his behavior is even more bizarre than usual. It's like he is taking the GOP with him over a cliff. There must be more to this. Something is going on with Rush/Republicans that we don't know.

Could it be that he sees how he got played and set up and sees the writing on the wall -- more and more GOPers distancing themselves from him as they hope to salvage what they can in 2010 and 2012 and just hope for survival? Maybe he sees his irrelevancy in the distance.

The guy is certainly coming unglued.”
