Old Bear Ditka Praises Mama Grizzly Palin

Ditka Praises Palin

By Steve Stein

Mike Ditka began his Lessons from Leaders keynote address Saturday night at Five Points Washington with an expletive-sprinkled remark about the first speaker in the series.

“I understand Sarah Palin spoke here last year. I admire her,” Ditka said about the former vice presidential candidate. “She’s a great lady, mother and wife, and that’s more important than the (expletive) the media spreads about her.”

The typically outspoken Ditka softened the tone of his comments for the rest of his hour-long talk and question-and-answer session.

The former Chicago Bears coach and player, Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, ESPN NFL analyst, entrepreneur and actor touched on a number of topics. He talked about football, politics, his admiration for Abraham Lincoln, and his recipe for personal and professional success in front of an audience of about 300, many wearing Bears attire.

Nearly 40 Washington Community High School football players were in the crowd. Their $15 student tickets were purchased by the 12th Man football booster club.

    You mean the same Mike Ditka who ran a charity to help out injured NFL players and spent most of it on golf junkets. Yeah like I really think he has any lock on being an honest person….

    Why do they have to swear? That is a major turn-off.

    Four hip replacement surgeries, a limp, and only 30% of the tickets sold. Iḿ giving the guy a break. Pain medication and the need for media exposure explain his asinine comment about sarah. I also believe he feels better knowing sarah is the oldest looking speaker on the tour and not him.

    he’s so blind, he can’t see…lol

    She was never a lady, she’s a lousy mother and an inept wife. She was lucky the media adored her because she is the most fu’d non-candidate out there.

    And Mike Ditka’s opinion about Palin means just what to us? Because he was an NFL coach, am I supposed to pay attention? He’d say or do anything for a dollar, pathetic!

    Well, my my! I have been giving Mike Ditka much more credit than he deserves for IQ. My bad.

    Mike Ditka wouldn’t know who Sarah Palin really was if she squatted on top of his car and went home with him. And I’d like him to find the articles where the media was unfair to the sick woman and made things up about her. In reality, if they just wrote the truth she’d be the biggest pariah there ever was in this country.

    Which part makes her a great lady, mother and wife?

    The part where she heckles the President (while he ignores her )? The part where she sexualizes her children and accuses people of wanting to rape them? How about the part where she gives snarky uneducated comments on FAUX? Or how about the part where her kids have babies out of wedlock, don’t go to school, break into houses and have alcohol and drug problems and accuse their long term sexual partners of raping them the first time? Or the part where Todd would rather have a happy ending from a paid escort than sleep with smelly Sarah?

    Mike hit too many people with his head during his NFL career.

    What makes someone a great wife and mother? That she has kids and wears a wedding ring? Excuse me, has kids and has worn a wedding ring? Ditka knows she is a mother and a wife. Does he know that none of her kids are actually married and having children? When was the last time anyone saw Tri-G? I wouldn’t trust this man’s opinion if he said it were raining and I heard thunder!

    Mike Ditka is a jerk. Who cares what he thinks?
