Tiki Barber Explains Football (And Politics)

From Tiki’s autobiography:

Football is cake.  You find your advantage, which is not hard to do, and then you exploit it.  Over and over again.  And then, when they figure out how to stop it, go to the other side — until they figure that out.  On defense, get the ball into the hands of your teammates.  That’s it.

Republicans are lucky.  Their coaches want to win the Super Bowl.  Democrats act as if they’d be happy to finish fifth in a pee wee league.

The GOP is going to keep running the ball down Barack Obama’s throat until he stops them.  You want us to work with you?  Fuck off.  We don’t cooperate with out-of-touch, one-term losers.

Indeed — why should they?  Obama has hitched his wagon to the bipartisan star.  He’s committed himself to a Cover 2 defensePlay it safe.  Rein in your own players, or somebody might get mad at you. 

The Twin Pillars Of Obamaism:

1) It’s okay if voters think you’re weak, as long as they don’t think you’re mean. 

2) Don’t disappoint the pundits.
