Salon reports that conservative columnist Michael Taube has proposed — probably tongue-in-cheek — renaming Washington’s NFL team from “Redskins” to “The Reagans.” We endorse this immediately.
Democrats want Washington’s NFL team to change its name. The Redskins‘ owner, Mr. Snyder, is the only person who can rightfully do this. Hence, if he chooses to comply and pays homage to a Republican president in the process, they’re stuck with it. Any further complaints would smack of political partisanship.
