Quote of the day: Featuring the p3 obligatory annual reference to pro sports

I don't blame He, Trump for coming out in favor of brain damage this way. It is, after all, an issue affecting his primary constituencies.
- Charlie Pierce, on the Short-Fingered Vulgarian's recent lament for the good old days when manly NFL officials threw fewer flags and there were a lot more dirty hits and head shots -- just like the days when America was great, the way Trump wants to make it again.

And, for whatever it's worth: Last week I mocked Trump by asking when he specifically thought was the era of American greatness to which he would return us all once he becoms president. Perhaps we now have at least part of the answer: It was when Dick Butkis was still playing.
