Because The Kool Aid Report Takes Sundays off: Obnoxious Packer Moron Mail

Learned Foot should appreciate this moron as well as the morons in the Strib who publish this crap today:

I nominate Brett Favre for president.


The pundits tell us that "toughness" is the critical characteristic a president needs- much more than judgement and certainly more than wisdom.

What pundit said that utter bullshit? Anyone? Beuller? I believe the reader is setting us up for the logical fallacy known as begging the question. Since he is likely a Packer fan with a man-crush on Favre and an IQ approaching 70, it isn't a surprise to see a logical fallacy coming up.

Brett is tougher than Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama and John McCain. Any doubt can be removed by a simple test: Have two 300-plus pound linemen fall on each of them, then see who emerges from the pile in the best shape.

And there's the logical fallacy: by claiming that pundits think toughness is the most important characteristic of a president, Mr. Moron attempts to prove his point by asserting that his football hero would be the best candidate. This idiot can't even get his logical fallacy right. Let's suspend disbelief for a minute and assume that physical toughness is indeed a characteristic required for the presidency (don't tell FDR). Is Favre really the toughest? Let's rewrite that last sentence and see:

Any doubt can be removed by a simple test: Imprison each of them for more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison camp. Break both their arms and a leg. Starve them so they lose 50 lbs. Tie them up and beat them every two hours until they are literally at the brink of death, then see who emerges from the prison in the best shape.

Let's see if tough-guy Brett signs up for that. John McCain did. To further back up McCain's tough guy credentials, the NVA offered him his freedom ahead of others and he refused unless those captured before him were released first.

Any tendency of Brett to throw errant passes can be corrected by installing "smart bomb" technology. Run Brett, run.

John LaBoner, Fridley

Yes, I understand that this boob is trying to make a joke and probably (you never know with Packer fans) doesn't really think Favre is qualified to be president. So what is the point of writing this moronic piece of tripe? To see how much readers time the Strib is willing to waste? Did Scott Gillespe run out of letters praising the Republicans who voted for the tax increase? Why????????????

I would bet that Brett is more conservative than McCain. Just sayin'.

Let's not forget that John McCain fought through his pain without the aid of mother's little helpers.

Chad, you broke the rule that states that only Rush Limbaugh can be accused of abusing 'scrip meds. Everyone else is a victim, even Elvis who arguably was conservative.
