Bigot Mike Lupica Really Doesn’t Like Iowa

Posted by on Jan 02, 2012 at 9:13 am

I’m not aware if this twerp Mike Lupica was writing about politics back in 2008, but I suspect if he was at the time of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, won by Barack Obama, that he was as virulently bigoted against both the inhabitants of Iowa or the Democratic candidates. Look, I realize this guy is a sportswriter by trade, but if the New York Daily News wants someone to cover politics, at least find someone who isn’t so hateful.

This isn’t some scattershot attack on all voters of Iowa, not even the dim ones who now graze toward Rick Santorumas we move up on the Opening Day of the primary season.

Translation: If you support Santorum, you’re stupid.
No, this is about the ridiculous way we select our presidential nominees in this country, the ridiculously small sampling of voters who will turn out on Tuesday for a caucus process that I’m sure not even poor Rick Perry understands.

Translation: Perry is stupid.
But you know who wins Iowa? Lumps like Mike Huckabee, that’s who.
Translation: Huckabee isn’t running, but hey, why not toss a cheap shot in at im for the heck of it.
I am actually rooting for crazy Ron Paulon Tuesday, just for the sheer color of it all, though in Paul’s case, you worry a bit discussing color, worrying that you might rile up some of his real white supporters.

Translation: Well, he might have a point about Paul.
Iowa isn’t a true sampling of anything, unless you are waiting to see if evangelicals can get out enough of an anti-Mitt Romneyvote to stop the Mormon.

Translation: Romney’s a Mormon? Gee, I had no idea.
Iowa: A great big rainbow coalition of a state where 2.9% of the people are African-American, and 5% of the people are Hispanic.

So we are talking about a state about as white as the National Hockey League.

Translation: Lupica suffers greatly from white guilt or something.

Of course, not all Iowans are goobers and religious nuts and people who take Ron Paul and Rick Santorum seriously. So many of the people who will let their voices be heard on Tuesday are Americans concerned enough to turn out and cast votes.

Well, that’s a relief. Not all of them are goobers and religious nuts. Gee, Mikey, thanks for adding that. We were starting to think you were an obnoxious bigot there for a bit.

    Lil’ Jock-sniffing Loopy speaks on politics? You can tell that the only sport he ever played was getting towel-snapped in the showers

    Iowa Democrats think a lot like Lupica. Remember that Obama was a nobody until he won the caucuses in all-white Iowa.

    If brave Mr. Lupica wants the real experience of being an Iowa caucusgoer, then let him tweet his phone number.

    Lupica was a sportswriter covering tennis until he ripped off the style of the late Dick Young for his own column and began to pontificate about all sports. Some time around the 2000 election he decided, against all evidence, that he knew everything about politics, government and current events. He has been parroting the liberal line ever since.

    This @$$h@t$ claim to fame was helping Fred Imus write a book. Judging by his short stature and intellect, it must have been a coloring book.

    Never heard of the guy. He’s right about the Iowa caucus being a stupid and non-representative way of choosing a primary candidate. The rest is just typical, narrow-minded urban biogtry.

    As Rush always says, liberal “Journalists” are liberals first – that even goes for sports “journalists.”

    The tragedy is that his knowledge of sports is almost equal to his knowledge of politics. He’s written entire articles trashing on teams for scoring too much then admitted not watching the game nor knowing how the 3rd string players were the ones scoring.
