Five Good Reasons to Hate the Oklahoma City Thunder
If Bennett and McClendon were merely über-rich energy tycoons with a sick sense of humor and zero sense of loyalty, we might forgive them. But the fact is that they are über bigots, too.
First, McClendon gave $250,000 to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth to suckerpunch John Kerry's bid for president in 2004. Then he donated more than half a million dollars to a group called Americans United to Preserve Marriage, which argues that gay couples "flout marriage by using it for their own political agenda (and) cheapen the institution."
With zombies, road-side masturbators, and mutant mosquitoes on the loose, South Floridians have plenty of things to be afraid of. But gay marriage isn't one of them. Join the 21st century, Oklahoma.
|Mmmm... taste the mercury! Thanks Jim.|
Oklahoma isn't just ignorant, it's dangerous. Well, maybe not all of Oklahoma, but its politicians. For the past week, Senator Jim Inhofe has been desperately trying to kill a regulation limiting the amount of mercury and other toxic chemicals that can be emitted from power plants. And you thought Rick Scott was dangerous.
The state's other senator, Tom Coburn, once protested against the airing of Schindler's List. He accused NBC of dragging television "to an all-time low, with full-frontal nudity, violence and profanity." He also accused the network of "irresponsible sexual behavior," adding, "I cringe when I realize that there were children all across this nation watching this program."
Dude, it's about the Holocaust.
1. Russell Westbrook's Outfits Make Our Eyes Bleed
If all else fails to convince you to hate the Oklahoma City Thunder, consider this: Russell Westbrook's outfits are scientifically guaranteed to give you eyeball cancer. The same could be said about Dwayne Wade's pink pants, but we chalk that up to a one-off bad decision. Westbrook, however, has a whole wardrobe of hideous shirts. Now he's claiming that he invented the whole designer-glasses-without-lenses thing. Maybe the lenses committed suicide after seeing his outfit.
