Obama Takes Time From Shutdown Crisis To Weigh In On All-Important Redskins 'Controversy'

Kids with cancer aren't getting care money but, hey, let's make sure we're keeping thing nice and PC.

President Barack Obama says he would "think about changing" the Washington Redskins' name if he owned the football team as he waded into the controversy involving a word many consider offensive to Native Americans.

Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names such as the Redskins offend "a sizable group of people." He said that while fans get attached to the names, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.

The "if he owned the football team" line is most chuckle-worthy. This man has been gurgling at the public funds teat his entire adult life, he couldn't achieve something entrepreneurial in the private sector if the lives of everyone he cared about depended on it.

It's worth noting that The Idiot King is one of the few people who can get so many football fans to suddenly like Daniel Snyder.

Also, let's not revisit this conversation until there are throngs of angry Native Americans protesting outside the Redskins' offices.
