Now that the ridiculous birthers have their precious document, what to do with their time-wasting energy?


UPDATE: What. The. What?! Dawg Pound over Dog Killer.  

Maybe aim their misguided anger at the video gaming industry, because at 3 this afternoon I suspect Michael Vick will be unveiled as the cover boy on one of America's most popular games. In a shocking final, it's Vick vs. Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis for the right to be on the cover of Madden 2012.

It's all by fan voting, so we have no one but ourselves to criticize when/if Vick graces the cover. Honestly, I lost interest when Vick beat Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware in the first round. I am a little surprised Christians didn't pray Tim Tebow into the final.

Now I'm wondering how Hillis got this far. Wondering how Vick will be welcomed by Madden and his legion of clients. And wondering how many geeks will be denied their favorite game because Mom will take one look at the cover and scream, "Get that trash outta my house!"

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
