Jebbie dances with wolves

The NCAA sweeping decision to ban Indian names and mascots -- but not in the regular season or bowl games and only if they are "hostile and abusive" and maybe not even then if you have lots of Native American students like the Braves of North Carolina-Pembroke -- has both Florida State officials and now Jeb Bush up in arms: "I think they insult those people by telling them, 'No, no, you're not smart enough to understand this. You should be feeling really horrible about this.' It's ridiculous."

Methinks Jebbie should stick with a crusade he can handle without sounding racist: defending the honor of Katherine Harris' jiggling boobs. [LINK]
