The Lesser Donald  
Sports owners are such scum that Donald Trump's threatened purchase of the Buffalo Bills would not appreciably lower the tone of the group. (Though it would endanger Dan Snyder's cherished position as Biggest Asshole in the NFL.) The current Horrible Example is basketball owner Donald Sterling, who has capped a career rich in racism and sexism by getting caught telling his Black outside squeeze that she should act whiter and not associate with Those People. Feministing discusses him and the Rich White Guys and wannabe Rich White Guys who defend him.

I note, just for the record, that much is being made of Donald Sterling's racism, and nothing at all of his sexism.

And since my comment yesterday, I've seen some commentary in the mainstream media.

(I've also seen that Allen West says the outrage over Donald Sterling's statements is a distraction from BENGHAZI. Of course.)

Sports owners are such special characters that George Steinbrenner was a relatively healthy specimen.
