Emmitt or Mario? It had better be Emmitt

Posted on Tue, Nov 14, 2006 at 4:42 PM

If you are spammed to death like I am daily, you've probably gotten these "Dancing With the Stars" deals about tonight's big showdown between Mario whatshisname from "Saved by the Bell" and former NFL running back great Emmitt Smith, with the subject line "Mario or Emmitt." A lot like the millions of "Coke vs. Pepsi" emails I've also received.

Emmitt deserves the trophy just for getting this far, although we always knew he could dance through NFL defenses with ease when the Cowboys were winning three Super Bowls. Mario's just a pretty boy dancer. He couldn't last two plays in the NFL.

Go Emmitt.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
