#1 Brennan's views on Kaepernick parallel those of recently made by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Two peas in a pod.

#2 Not a great surprise for Brennan. The surprise is Nike. Why do they want to shoot themselves in the feet just because Kaepernick insists on shooting himself in both feet? IMO the people out here do not view this as a "noble sacrifice." A noble sacrifice in some guy in the military, away from his family, sitting in the boonies in Afghanistan.

#4 Why do they want to shoot themselves in the feet

Nike is as big-ass multi-national with the usual complement of bean-counters and marketeers. Maybe they've all gone insane, but more likely, they see some advantage to this play. Seems crazy on the surface which suggests there is something we're not seeing.

#5 There's nothing more edgy and anti-establishment than an endorsement of your sneaker ad by a former CIA Director.

#7 advantage to this play

How about this: a roomful of TDS-positive weasels decides to drop off a buoy or two before tacking right? To help themselves sleep at night, and to have something to point at to mollify left-leaning customers? TDS-positive weasels are still weasels.

#11 It’s exactly what I’d expect, glad they “self identified”
