NFL, Super Bowl success: “Socialism” triumphs again

Many of you have probably seen this little video from a while back from the almost always funny and provocative Bill Maher, but it seems worth promoting again this morning in the aftermath of last night’s orgy of economic success/excess. Maher’s insightful point is one that I and a lot of other progressive sports fans have made over the years.

(And, as last night’s game demonstrated, the rich (i.e. the New York Giants) can still fare extremely well — even in a collectivist enterprise like the NFL).

    I’ve never found Bill Maher to be very funny nor as witty as he thinks he is. My guess is he will die as a lonely and cynical old man still pondering his own existence and still wondering why people never took him very seriously.
