    I'm sure George Bush cares less about the words coming out of Joey Porter's big mouth than I do. And that's hard to do.

    Why is it that people we pay to entertain us think their opinion matters? He needs to have a little respect for the tradition of these championship visits and for the office of the white house. Oh, I forgot who we're talking about. No wonder someone shot this guy in the ass.

    While I certainly agree with your overall sentiment, I can answer your first question.

    People who entertain us are powerful opinion leaders. If it's Jordan selling sneakers, Tiger selling drivers, or Jeter selling baseball gloves, it's clear that their opinion matters to many of us. Muhammad Ali certainly made his politics known and inspired many people to protest against the war in Vietnam. The biggest difference here however is Porter is nowhere near a Jordan, Tiger, Jeter or Ali.

    If Jordan tells me sneakers make him play well, I believe him because he plays well. Ali's politics, I'll keep my politics out and not agree or disagree, were informed and articulated. And I don't think that pop-star opinions sway the general public as much as they or the media think.

    They have however created multi billion dollar industry's out of pop stars and athletes. In this day and age where most people worry about spending their money wisely, many still purchase products that are endorsed by these celebrities even if they are more expensive than non-endorsed products of equivalent quality. That speaks volumes.

    According to 24, all you need to do is call the White House and ask to speak with the President. At least it works that way for Miles.

    I think it says something about Joey that of all the things he could say to the President the one thing he wants to do is ask for money back. If I were speaking to Bush there are A LOT of things I'd want to say to him but asking for money back would not be the first. (Sorry for the rant Nut.)

    I like Porter's attitude and the way he plays the game. I would take him as 55's replacement in a heartbeat.

    Say it like it is , Joey, you're speaking for many of us.

    Here is Porter showing how he farts through his mouth.

    This thread shuld be moved to the general or political forum before the wacko's over there venture over here.

    I always love it when they do that.

    My gut tells me that a guy like Porter stands to do much more harm than good to the causes he claims to support.

    So the way I see it, those who see things the way Porter does would do well to knock some sense into him, and those who disagree with him should be encouraging him to "speak his mind".

    :confused:
    Joey Porter is making 3.85 million dollars this year, I highly doubt he speaks for you, fool. Considering he is the rich who you say gets all the tax breaks.
