Vick's Formula

America is a funny place. We are so very selective about who and where we assign the “forgiveness” moniker. ---Former NFL QB Michael Vick has been reinstated by the NFL and can begin his career again as soon as a team signs him. So far, no one has blinked, but when they do he will be a millionaire… again.

This is the guy America is going to forgive and embrace? The guy who was convicted of dog fighting, (and killing) interstate racketeering and money laundering? Then he lied to a grand jury and the NFL commissioner. Then he was sentenced to only 23 months in prison, of which he only served 18 and the last few at a resort with an ankle bracelet.

Remember that Vick’s protocol for dealing with bad dogs was they were killed -- by gunshot, electrocution, drowning, hanging, and in at least one case, being repeatedly slammed against a concrete floor.


No outrage. No protests. In fact, Vick will be making a commercial for the Human Society. Awwwwwww. What about his “Bad Newz” tattoo signifying his dog fighting kennel? Is he just going to cover that up or can we get a pitbull to chew it off?
