DING DING DING! TexasTowelie, you're our grand prize winner!

This over-entitled turd is going to get pulverized if he ever gets on the football field.

And quite possibly by his OWN teammates!




Anyone remember Joe Namath? His teammates and front office may not have liked his showboating and partying, but they tolerated it because he didn't start ACTING like Joe Namath until he BECAME Joe Namath, see? They tolerated it because aside from having above average skills, he understood the importance of showing that he ALSO cared about being a team leader.

Manziel's problem, as you so beautifully put it, is "over-entitlement." Unlike Tebow, or most of his teammates (or Bieber or Mayweather for that matter), Manziel's life ISN'T effectively over if he fails in the NFL. He won't end up having to do infomercials or playing overseas to stay afloat financially. So he DOESN'T waste time kowtowing to Browns management and coaches or caring about the players -- especially not the quarterbacks he's supposed to be making a priority of outplaying. He's got bimbos and celebrities climbing over him because he's already wealthy, not because he's delivered on his promise as quarterback.

But how much winning does Manziel think he can do without winning the respect of his teammates? He doesn't have enough sense to PRETEND that becoming THE Cleveland Browns quarterback is his only priority right now?

Remember this scene from Raiders Of The Lost Ark?



That's what happened to Cantor -- he got so caught up in flashing the swords of his own rhetoric and ambition, he completely lost sight of the even more powerful weapon that his own voters still had.

Just like that, a member of the GOP's congressional "gang of three" is gone, and more important, it puts a bug in the ears of Boner and McTurtle's voters that it's not impossible for them to do the same. Power to the people, right on!

But why stop at withholding state funding? Let's withhold EVERYTHING!

If not being able to get emergency welfare will help discourage people from illegally crossing our borders, imagine how well their not being able to get ANYTHING would work! All we have to do is make it illegal to buy, sell, give, receive, possess or exchange ANY kind of product, service, or funding in America -- private or public, legal or illegal, domestic or foreign -- if you're not in the country legally. That would have them skeedaddling out of here like roaches in a light beam!

Since they would have no marital or parental rights, anchor babies must leave with their parents and can come back when they're 18 (as long as they're proficient in English and don't have a criminal record). If only there was a way to make it illegal from them to have sex or breathe our air...
