Governor Ed Rendell Is Spot On! We Are A Nation Of Wussies
"The governor of Pennsylvania blasted the precautions over this week`s blizzard as a sign of growing US feebleness, saying that the Chinese would not have flinched at the snow.
"We`ve become a nation of wussies. The Chinese are kicking our butts in everything," Ed Rendell, the governor of the eastern state, told a Philadelphia radio station on Monday.
"If this was in China, do you think the Chinese would have called off the game?" Rendell said.
"The people would have been marching down to the stadium. They would have walked and they would have been doing calculus on the way down," he told 97.5 The Fanatic, a sports station."
Governor Rendell is an old school politician who looks like a boxer who has taken one punch too many, and who speaks like a butcher and not a lawyer.
Rendell is the kind of guy you wouldn`t mind having a few beers with at a strip club. Rendell, God bless his soul, doesn`t give a rat`s a** about being politically correct.
Rendell was hopping mad about the NFL`s wimpy decision to postpone the Philadelphia Eagles` home game because of a few snow flurries.
Back in the day when men were men, football was played in frozen tundras, and spectators kept warm by guzzling beer and engaging in fisticuffs.
We are a nation of (rhymes with wussies), and the China will soon overtake us as the most powerful nation on Earth. Rendell is spot on, the Chinese would have walked to the stadium, and they would have done calculus by longhand on the way down, and once at the stadium the cold wouldn`t have bothered them because they would have been too busy buying American properties online.
