After reading this lengthy, thorough walk through of Ken Starr’s stewardship of Baylor in the Dallas Morning News, I was ready to post some snark about coverups and maybe the need for a special prosecutor, but why read what an amateur has to say on the subject when you can turn to the stylings of a pro like Mr. Charles P. Pierce?
The whole thing is a smart-ass’ joy to read, but there’s no doubt about my favorite part. Here ’tis:
With the help of Robert Griffin III, Starr used Baylor football to help save the Big 12 Conference. This is what this pious fraud said about that:
“During this seminal moment in Baylor’s athletic history,” Starr wrote in a letter, “by God’s grace, we have prevailed.”
God saved the Big 12 Conference? Bad move, God, The Big 12 is a monstrosity that has denied us our godgiven right to a Nebraska-Oklahoma game every Thanksgiving. Thanks a lot, God.
Amen to that, Brother Pierce. There’s no way Gawd is that cruel.
