On this Week’s Episode of ‘Synonyms for Texas’…

douchetastic buffoonery

Actually, according to former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, that’s a synonym for Texans owner Bob McNair – or at least what he’s been up to (because he clearly hasn’t been up to putting together a competent team.)

It was with some puzzlement that I read the recent story about your donation to a political group opposing the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (“HERO”), a measure seeking to protect Houstonians from sexual orientation and gender identity-based discrimination.

“Surely,” I said to myself, “one of the NFL’s thirty-two owners, businessmen with more accumulated wealth than most third world nations and completely vested in the well-being of the society that afforded them such success … surely this man could not be a pants-on-head, cowhumping glue-huffer stupid enough to buy in on clearly outdated ideals of bigotry and intolerance?”

Sadly, however, it appears I must hide my livestock, because the facts do not lie. You have, indeed, donated $10,000 to a cause whose sole purpose is to denigrate a specific group of American citizens

And those are just the opening three paragraphs of Kluwe’s open letter to McNair.

I rarely favorably quote Dan Savage, but this is an exception to the rule.

Kluwe’s letter?

It gets better.

Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch better.
