Sam Brownback Slights Brett Farve In Packer Country

Sam Brownback was in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin talking to the Wisconsin Republican Party convention. He tried to use a football analogy, but he used the wrong quarterback when talking in Wisconsin. He was trying to tell the crowd about how to focus more on the families, and said, “This is fundamental blocking and tackling.” Brownback then said, “This is your line in football. If you don’t have a line, how many passes can Peyton Manning complete? Greatest quarterback, maybe, in NFL history.” Greatest Quarterback? Not in Wisconsin. Brownback realized what he said and buried his head for a moment. He tried to regroup and apologized, “That’s really bad,” he said. “That will go down in history. I apologize.” He went on to say that Packer’s Bart Starr was the greatest quarterback in history, but that didn’t settle the crowd. So, “Let’s take Favre then,” Brownback said. “The Packers are great. I’m sorry. How many passes does he complete without a line?” A few from the back yelled back at him, “All of them.” Realizing his goof he tried to move on, “I’m not sure how I recover from this,” Brownback said. “My point is we’ve got to rebuild the family. I’ll get off this.” I’m not sure what a football line has to do families. Maybe Brownback should just say what he means and quit playing word games and using silly analogies. Or, maybe he wants families to go out and play football together.
