On Friday afternoon Bruce Allen, president of the Washington Redskins football team, sent a latter to Harry Reid in response to Reid’s latest call on Thursday for the Redskins to change their name. The letter basically said “butt out” and made the case for why the Redskins should keep the name (see Letter from President Bruce Allen).
Reid was one of 50 Democratic senators who signed the letter because, as we all know, the country is perking along just fine and we have no financial issues, economic distress, or questions about Benghazi and the deaths of Americans. No, it’s more important for Harry Reid et al to spend their time and concern themselves with meddling in a private business and worry about the name of a football team. The term MYOB comes to mind. Or maybe, “Get back to work.”
