PETA's Answer to the Redskin's "Controversy"

People for the Eating of Tasty Animals came up with a compromise the bloviating idiot Bob Costas could agree on. Perhaps he'll even bloviate on it during the next sporting event he covers:

Press, pundits and politicos, including the president himself, have put in their two cents about the Washington Redskins mascot, and now the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has offered up its solution: the potato.
The NFL team has come under renewed pressure to change its name due to racial implications, but Redskins.aspx” target=”_blank”>PETA suggested in an article Friday that the team could just simply change the mascot to the popular starch.
“Don’t change the legendary Redskins name. Just change the logo,” PETA’s senior editor Alisa Mullins wrote. “When you hear the word ‘redskin,’ what do you immediately think of? Potatoes, of course! And who could be offended by a harmless redskin [sic] potato — except, maybe, for the Yukon Gold lobby …”
Perfect! An idiotic answer to an idiotic controversy created by a bunch of idiots.
