Duke University is one of the top Academic Schools in the country.
They also have an awesome Men’s NCAA Basketball program.
Doesn’t men I root for Duke when any of my “home” teams play them. Fat chance! Go Terrapins! Go Hoyas!
Nor can you begrudge their success …
Or can you?
Jalen Rose, formerly of Michigan apparently is still smarting from getting Whupped by Duke in ’92 (by 40 points), and then Whupped by the OTHER top tier team in the ACC – North Carolina in ’93.
I also don’t recall any Duke Players from their actions getting their school suspended, and an entire season’s victories overturned.
The Fab 5 were great players… Unfortunately they weren’t, and by Rose’s comments – great people.
Michigan — In the new ESPN 30 for 30 on Michigan’s Fab 5 premiering this Sunday, former Wolverine and current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose professed his hate for Duke. Rose even took a shot at the Black players they recruited.
“For me, Duke was personal. I hated Duke. And I hated everything I felt Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms.”
Rose later clarified his comments, while still sticking by his stance.

At some point the government needs to start prosecuting the people who are egging on and giving this sort of hate and threats legitimacy. Perhaps it is time to start taking a hard look at Mr Beck as a criminal accomplice…
US Senator Patty Murray of Washington
Washington Man Charged with Threatening to Kill Sen. Patty Murray
A Washington state man was charged Tuesday with threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) because of her “yes” vote on health care reform legislation.
Prosecutors said Charles Alan Wilson, 64, left more than a dozen threatening messages at Murray’s office after the measure passed the Senate March 21, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.
“I want to …. kill you,” Wilson said in one message, according to court documents.
“Kill the …. senator! Hang the …. senator! I hope somebody puts a …. bullet between your …. eyes,” he said in another call.
His arrest came after an FBI agent called the suspect, posing as a representative from a group trying to get health care reform repealed. Wilson agreed to have that call recorded and agents compared it to the messages left for Murray.
He allegedly told the undercover agents that he regularly carries a gun and that he had a concealed weapons permit, Politico reported.
Wilson was charged with threatening a federal official. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison and fined as much as $250,000.

Utah Martin Luther King Day Bill: Senator Mark Madsen Wants To Add Honor For Gunmaker
Utah state Senator Mark Madsen (R-Eagle Mountain) wants to honor gun maker John Browning with a state-recognized holiday and he wants to do it on Martin Luther King Day.
And in a quick turnaround -
Ogden gunmaker John Browning won’t share a state holiday with civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
“We don’t want to go where we’re not wanted,” said Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Eagle Mountain. “I had an idea to honor an international icon and a favorite son of Utah and got backed into race politics.”
After the proposal surfaced Wednesday, local NAACP leader Jeanetta Williams said it was “a very mean-spirted act” to consider honoring a gun manufacturer on the same day as King, who was shot and killed by an assassin.
Even Madsen’s fellow Republicans had their doubts. Madsen’s bill to establish the Browning holiday was discussed during Thursday’s closed-door Senate GOP caucus.
“I think there was a general feeling among the caucus members that we look at a different date,” Senate Majority Whip Wayne Niederhauser, R-Sandy, said, adding he was not surprised about the controversy.
Madsen, though, said he thought Browning, born in January, was a good fit with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, celebrated on the third Monday of January.
“Both made tremendous contributions to individual freedom and individual liberty,” Madsen said, noting Browning’s contribution towards winning World War I, a 1911 model handgun. (more…)

Hat Tip – Wonkette
Black Man Puts His Feet On Desk, Wingnuts Furious
Can you believe this guy? Our queen gave us this holy desk back when his people were still slaves or whatever, and now he’s putting his feet on it?
Oh, the wingnuts. How crazy they make themselves, every day, all because it’s no longer acceptable — even on Fox News or talk radio — to say the “N word.”
This is the rest of the forwarded email making the anger-bear trailer-park rounds today:
But don’t worry, it’s still okay if the white guy does it.

This is freaking unbelievable! It demonstrates exactly how low a Kneegrow can go hanging around with Republicans.
Ms. Johnson is backing Republican Bob McDonnell over Democrat Creigh Deeds in the 2010 Virginia Governor’s race. With her $100 million+ resort in Middleberg, Virginia teetering on the edge of collapse, there is no question a deal has been struck…
But this is low…
BET Founder Mocks Deeds’ Stuttering At Fundraiser
BOB LEWIS, AP Political Writer
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ― The billionaire co-founder of the Black Entertainment Television mocked Democrat Creigh Deeds’ occasional stuttering at a fundraiser she held for Deeds’ Republican opponent in the governor’s race, Bob McDonnell.
In a YouTube viceo, Sheila Johnson says Virginia needs a governor “who can really communicate, and Bob McDonnell can communicate.”
Then she tells a small crowd of wealthy donors, “The other people I talk to, especially his op-op-op-o-opponent, di-di-did this all through my interview with him.”
After muted laughter among the guests, she adds, “He could not articulate what needed to be done.”
There was no immediate response from Johnson, McDonnell’s campaign or Deeds.

This is Congressman Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri, speaking at the Value Voters Summit yesterday -
Hard to believe this guy is so stupid he didn’t know this one – especially after President Jimmy Carter’s comments…
Is going to cause a ishtstorm.
Value Voters is a social conservative group. Obviously, their view of christian values doesn’t preclude racism.

Robert F. McDonnell, Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia in the 2010 Election is steadil chipping away at his previously commanding lead as more and more information about the ugly side of religious conservatism comes out…
Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Virginia voters finds McDonnell leading Deeds 51% to 42% on September 2nd. This was just after news of McDonnell’s thesis at Regent University leaked out where he blamed the cultural meltdown of America morality on working women and homosexuals. As such, it probably has not had any impact on the numbers…
Scrutiny Spreads to ’03 McDonnell Remarks
In January 2003, then-Del. Robert F. McDonnell helped gavel in one of the most extraordinary judicial reappointment hearings in Virginia history: a seven-hour, trial-like affair that led to questions about whether the future Republican gubernatorial candidate thought gays were fit to serve on the bench.
