Jerry Kramer politics

Sarah Palin is Stumping for Jerry Kramer

Packers Sweep: Jerry Kramer

You sure are lucky if you live in Wisconsin right now. Politicians of all sorts have been swarming the state like locusts to a goddam wheat field.

Of the two, we’d say locusts are actually the more desirable scourge.

Well, enter Sarah Palin.

Sarah, could you say something really fucking ignorant and nonsensical?

Why, of course I could! I’ll just open my mouth…

This poster child for the mentally challenged — you too can be a vice presidential nominee! — was in Wisconsin over the weekend campaigning for Donald Trump.

Because… of course!

Naturally, Palin had to say something about the Green Bay Packers. As usual, it made zero fucking sense…

“It’s always so good to be in Wisconsin, getting off the airplane today as I’m walking through the airport and seeing all the green and gold and green – and gold till I’m dead and cold – paraphernalia everywhere, it’s Packers.”

Yes it is Packers! Yes it is!

It’s all Packers!

Palin then got on to former Packers guard Jerry Kramer.

You may have heard — he isn’t in the Hall of Fame.

Well, Palin’s father played high school football with Kramer in Idaho, so she knows Jerry.

And now she wants to try to help get Jerry in the Hall of Fame.

Palin posted this on Facebook on Saturday.

While that’s swell and we all believe Kramer belongs in the Hall of Fame, we also know it isn’t going to do anything.

This isn’t a popularity contest. Hall of Famers are selected by a committee of guys who have or do cover the NFL.

It’s not that Kramer hasn’t been considered. He’s been considered many times. He’s been a finalist 10 times.

Each one of those times he failed to garner the appropriate amount of support from the voters.

We’ve long heard the reason Kramer isn’t in isn’t because he’s not good enough, it’s because he pissed off the wrong people. More than a few people view Kramer as selfish and feel he put himself above the team.

That isn’t speculation. We’ve heard it from people inside the Packers organization.

So while getting behind Jerry’s candidacy is fine, no amount of letter writing or fence painting is getting him elected. That would take either a fundamental change in the way the voters think or some of those voters actually being replaced.

We suppose the good news is Kramer’s fate lies with the seniors committee these days and there are only nine of those guys.

Maybe Palin could have a few of them killed.

    Wait, Kramer isn’t in the Hall of Fame?? I’ve never heard that one before. Actually he probably gets more publicity about not being in the Hall than anybody who is actually in the Hall.i guess that’s just what he wanted when he broke the golden rule of what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room.

      So what, he’s a HoF calibre player, THAT is the ONLY thing that matters.

      1. Phatgzus April 4, 2016

        The Juice is in the HoF for fuck’s sake and he murdered someone AND tried to rob a bank. Marvin Harrison is in there as well and Ray Lewis soon.

          I hear what you’re saying, but it’s not like OJ was voted in to Canton “after” the murders.

          1. Phatgzus April 6, 2016

            1) That’s not the point, the point was that the ONLY criterion that should be considered to judge a player’s worthiness for the HoF is his ON-FIELD contributions.

            2) Marvin Harrison and Ray Lewis were accused of crimes prior to their (potential) entrance.

      2. Cheese April 5, 2016

        I never said he didn’t deserve to be in there. Apparently there’s some people who’s opinions matter more than mine that think otherwise. Being in the Hall of Fame doesn’t change what he did as a player. Everyone knows his career is HOF calibre. Is putting his name on a plaque and making a miniature bronze version of his head suppose to change any of that? His life isn’t going to all of a sudden have validation because some random dudes finally decide that he is now worthy in their eyes. There are tons of players in the HOF that I’ve never heard of and never will because they never get talked about, as there are probably lots of people who know of Jerry Kramer for the sole reason of not being in the HoF and probably never would have heard of him if wasn’t for that. Not saying that it is right, it is what it is. Just looking at it from a different perspective.

    What a bitch!!….the nerve of this c*** thinking she can post on facebook her desire to see Jerry Kramer in the Hall of Fame. She deserves everything you can give her Mordecai. Lets string that bitch up!! Should give you guys something to do, at least until you find something on TMZ or Life & Style to write about and shit on Munn or Clays wife again.

    OK, how in the hell are you supposed to create an avatar pic on this site?

    Maybe you should start writing political articles because you don’t know shit about Jerry Kramer. To even put the word fail and reference Kramer in the same sentence shows how little you know about Kramer and the will power Lombardi helped develop in men he coached. Kramer has never failed at anything football related.

    “I’ve never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline… I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour-this greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear–is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.” Lombardi.

    Kramer will be in the HOF, maybe lying exhausted on the field of battle — but victorious. Lombardi saw something in Kramer, soon all those politically correct sensitive assholes who vote will open their eyes and see what Lombardi saw 50+ years ago.

    “Poster CHILD for the MENTALLY CHALLENGED”.

    Sarah actually has a “mentally-challenged” grandchild.

    So yeah, classy article there ‘ol Mordecai. The website has gained so much from your insight, write again soon!

  6. Chad Lundberg April 5, 2016

    Nope. Its her child, not her grandchild.

    1. Tuson Packer April 5, 2016

      Does that not somehow make this article even more disgusting?

  7. Harry Hood April 6, 2016

    LOL at getting upset over retards on the interwebz

    You write the most ignorant posts. It was so cool when you first approached our family and offered to help us get dad in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Your writings were funny and witty at that time. But ever since I turned you down for your ‘other offer’, you have become bitter and your writing is flat. I’m not asking you to get back on board with the hall of fame bid. I am asking you to pull the stick out of your ass and please write more quality and funny pieces like you used to do. We cheer for the same team. At least be civil and report what is true and not this nasty retalitory bs you have been coming up with. I still read your stuff. It’s part of my packer news, but you gotta come up with better stuff

    Much love,
