Stupid Monkey

Introducing one of NBC's Precious Moments (or Olympic Moments or whatever), Jim Whosits said, "The theory of evolution is controversial." (He was trying to be cute, saying something about how evolution in sports is natural.)

No, you schmuck, what's controversial is NBC's self-indulgent and obfuscated coverage. Actually, it's not so much controversial as it is predictable. It may be that the Olympics will never again have the luster they had in recent decades, but NBC has sure done its part of late to make it as hard as possible to get invested.

What year is this? We're still furrowing our brows over evolution? Taking our talking points from Alan Keyes, are we?
