Tonight, everyone’s favorite ultra liberal lesbian pundit discussed a new study, which tracks political contributions from the players, coaches and organizations which make up the National Football League over the past 20 years.  Not surprisingly, the vast majority of money goes to Republican candidates.

The most politically active spenders? The San Diego Chargers, who donated about 4 times as much money as any other organization, with 98% of the cash going to the GOP. San Diego’s a big military town, so that might have something to do with it. The Redskins (Snyder’s a douche) and Texans (that’s BUSH country) also donated 98% plus to Republicans.

Some teams do lean left, with the St. Louis Rams the most liberal, donating 98% of their money to Democrats.

San Francisco (GAYS!,) Philadelphia (URBANS!,) and Pittsburgh (PINKO COMMIE LABOR UNIONS!) also donated more to dems than to Republicans.
