ENOUGH WITH THE FUCKING DOG!

This has nothing to do with sports. You should know that going in.

Did you watch the two night NBC News special, with Brian Williams spending the day inside the White House? It was really interesting, I thought. But, I do have one quibble.

The West Wing is full of interesting people. There’s, of course ,the President and his top advisers. There’s chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel, who essentially said he enjoyed being in Congress because it was easy and didn’t take up all of his time. There is the entire generation of staffers under 30, who are just now embarking on what could be a career spent in service to their nation. And there is the First Lady, a force of nature in her own right.

Well, NBC touched on all of this, but didn’t get too in depth. It’s possible that cameras simply weren’t given as much access to these people as I may have liked. But more likely, the reason is this:

THEY SPENT 15 MINUTES TALKING ABOUT THE FUCKING DOG.

I don’t begrudge the first family the right to have a pet. Nor, do I have a problem with Brian Williams asking the First Couple a couple of prefunctory questions about what it’s like to have a dog in the White House. But, do I need to see the managing editor of NBC Nightly News get down on his knees and talk jibberish to a dog? NO. Go talk to David Axelrod. Show us some more of your one on one with the Leader of the Free World.  But stop wasting time with the motherfucking dog.

Thank you. Now back to sports.
