Obama: “Thanks for Giving Michael Vick a second chance. And, er, speaking of second chances…”

The president’s odd telephone call to the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles - in which Obama praised Jeffrey Lurie for giving ex-dog-fight impresario Michael Vick a second chance – was, in my view, a quasi-subliminal appeal to the American people to give the president a second chance. Per Lurie:
”…he [the president] was happy that we did something on such a national stage that showed our faith in giving someone a second chance after such a major downfall.''
Not just Democrats in Congress, but Obama, got clobbered in the mid-term elections, and now the preshizzle is struggling to gear up for his run at another term, looking for a “second chance” after (several) major downfalls.

Tell you what would be interesting: if Barrie were to call up Chris Christie and praise him for defending second amendment rights by commuting the sentence of Brian Aitken. Of course it ain’t gonna happen, but I enjoy imagining the sound of all those liberal heads exploding, like the volley of cannon fire in a performance of the 1812 Overture.

Now Vick wants a dog. For his daughter. And PETA and the HSUS are onboard.

What's wrong with this picture?

How about "Fuck no, Mike."

Somebody capable of doing those things to dogs will be capable of doing them to humans. I'd be for keeping him away from kids, personally. Forget about dogs.

Obama endorses Vick, his team blows a key game.

Not only does Obama show his true colors once again (second only to soon-to-be-former Governor Crist as a shameless opportunist), Vick is given the Obama Blessing Of Death™.

So while Vick doesn't deserve all of this attention, let alone a second chance, there's something of a silver lining here.
