Ed Rendell, the storied Governor of Pennsylvania, has never been one to hold his tongue.
He was notorious around the City of Brotherly Love for his creative use of four-letter swears and other ribald perversions of the King's English.
In a city that boos Santa Claus, this is what passes for charm.
And now Rendell has found a great national soapbox for his particular brand of profane wisdom: tonight's Vikings game against the Eagles.
Rendell has his manhood in a bunch over the postponement of Sunday night's game over fears of a blizzard that didn't end up hitting that city nearly as hard as New York.
"We've become a nation of wusses. The Chinese are kicking our butt in everything," he said. "If this was in China do you think the Chinese would have called off the game? People would have been marching down to the stadium, they would have walked and they would have been doing calculus on the way down."And if we know Rendell, that's the cleaned-up version of the quote.
