Frivolous Football Flap

Well. Now, there seems to be a big flap brewing over what football fans might be exposed to between Budweiser ads on Super Sunday 2010. National women’s groups are up in arms because conservative Christian group Focus on the Family will be airing an anti-abortion ad featuring college football star Tim Tebow and his mother.

Jemhu Greene, president of the New York-based Women’s Media Center, declared the Super Bowl “an event designed to bring Americans together” and stated that “An ad that uses sports to divide rather than to unite has no place in the biggest national sports event of the year –.

Terry O’Neill, the president of the National Organization for Women, called the ads “extraordinarily offensive and demeaning.

So, who says the Super Bowl is an event designed to bring Americans together besides Jemhu Greene? I’ve always kind of thought of it as a football game, where fans from two competing sides act out their primitive war instincts on the gridiron instead of the battlefield. It’s a healthy way for human beings to kick the shit out of each other without committing a felony and without screwing around with the political map and getting in the government’s way. That’s government’s playing field.

Would Ms. O’Neill find it “ extraordinarily offensive and demeaning ” if the ads were replaced by notables hawking male enhancement products, erectile dysfunction info-mercials, and stuff to make crotches smell like an apple tree by a babbling brook in the springtime?

Besides, Super Bowl ads are good for the economy, most likely producing more cash flow than anyone but Wal-Mart and the Internal Revenue Service. What have the Feminst Thought Police produced for the economy lately? Or, do they just want to micro-manage what folks see between game segments while swilling beer and violating Rules of Cholesterol Management? At least the Conservative Thought Police are willing to throw a little money around instead of just bitch for free.

Fry your brain on booze, clog up your arteries like a tenement toilet, but by Goddess don’t you dare to even suggest disagreement with anything the Feminist Movement has proclaimed a franchise on. Aren’t Gloria Steinham and Helen Reddy post-menopausal by now? Don’t women have more important things to energize about? It’s a Liberal White House and a Liberal Congress right now. Do they really think Roe vs Wade is going to get run out of town on a stack of Bibles just because some group paid an exorbitant amount of money to present their opinion during a friggin’ football game?

These ladies (can I say that, or do I have to call them “persons”?) really ought to have their medications checked. Or, they could always fork over a few million bucks and have their own side of the story flashed between Budweiser ads.
