Jeanine’s Memes

From The Bull Elephant

I don’t normally comment on memes, but this one provides a jumping off point to ask, what the hell were they thinking when they picked that name? Half the country is sick and tired of the self-righteous edicts, diktats and decrees  emanating from Washington, D.C. — and the Washington football team names itself the Commanders? As in.. those who issue commands… Basically, the team is signaling that it stands with the ruling political class over us taxpaying helots and hoi polloi.

After getting smacked around for the “Redskins” name, maybe owner Dan Snyder decided, if you can’t fight ’em, join ’em. Time to suck up to the ruling class.

The Commanders might appeal to the self-image of self-important Washingtonians, but the name is pretty well guaranteed to make his football team the one the rest of the country loves to hate.
