It is indicative of the bias that gusts through our media that when the most successful political strategist in memory, Karl Rove, retires from his powerful position in the Bush White House, the press reports his departure tsk-tskingly. Somehow Mr. Rove's departure must suggest his failure and disgrace. Or as some nitwit anchoring the midday CNN news broadcast, "Your World Today," put it when I was walking past a television monitor, "Does that mean the Bush administration is essentially over?" And we are told the Fox News is biased. What about stupid?
Well, the Tennessee Titans have foiled Pacman Jones' plans to join the professional wrestling circuit during his suspension from the NFL. The team is willing to let him have an outside-the-ring role with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, I hear, but he has to stay at least 50 feet away from any Foreign Object.
Pacman Jones ought to love professional wrestling. For one thing, there's no one-bump rule. There's no penalty for holding, either, nothing to prevent you from grabbing an opponent by the trunks — or by the hair, if there's enough of it — and flinging him into the first row.
