Not since Mildred “Babe” Didrikson Zaharias or Althea Gibson has there been a female this dominant and this talented- in any sport- and her sister, Venus, is just as talented. Plus, they are attractive. Really attractive.
And for you out there carping about her sitting on the flag- lighten up. I was in the military for ten years and I know that this is not how you are supposed to treat the flag, but so what? This was no intentional slight- she isn’t burning it like some people, and there is no doubt in my mind she is proud to be an American. This is the face of the meritocracy people claim to want- this is the face of America.

Before I get 500 emails, I am not implying that anyone who is mad at Serena for sitting on the flag is racist. That is how the left thinks- everything is about race. My point was that this is an innocent flap, a nothing in the big picture of things. I am sure if she knew how much it upset people (yes, I am channeling Serena), she would probably not do it again. My point about meritocracy was that given an equal opportunity- the best succeed- because they are the best. I can’t think of a better face to represent the U.S.
