Westboro Baptist Church Will Picket Joe Paterno’s Funeral

Joe Paterno’s death caused, to put it mildly, mixed reactions: The Hollywood Reporter has a roundup, and it includes everything from George HW Bush’s glowing remembrance of the Penn State coach to this zinger from a Late Show writer and producer: “Will there be a moment of silence for Joe Paterno, to honor his silence when he discovered children were being attacked?” But the most extreme reaction came, of course, from those paragons of understatement, the Westboro Baptist Church.

Joe Paterno, the “winningest coach in college football,” who was forced to retire from his position as head coach of Penn State’s football team following the Jerry Sandusky/child rape scandal, has died at the age of 85. Paterno announced he had lung cancer just days after leaving his post at Penn State and his health deteriorated quickly. Some will remember him for his winning record and deep commitment to his school and team; others won’t be able to forget how he allowed that allegiance to a game and institution take precedence over the lives of innocent children. Both would likely agree that his passing comes too soon. He is survived by his wife Sue, five children, and 17 grandchildren. [CBS News, NBC Sports]

  • Sarah Palin was asked about Penn State’s Jerry Sandusky during an appearance on Greta Van Susteren’s show on Fox yesterday and said, “Hang him from the highest tree. I’ll bring the rope.” Greta then asked if Sarah might want the justice system to run its course first and Sarah replied, “Hang him from the highest tree and I’ll bring the rope if he is guilty of what is alleged.” [Politico]

  • Earlier today, I posted the video from last night’s interview between NBC’s Bob Costas and accused child rapist Jerry Sandusky. What I didn’t point out then was that Sandusky’s lawyer, Joe Amendola, was also interviewed and said that not only does he believe his client is innocent, but that he would happily leave his own kids in his care. He also said that he believes they have figured out the identity of Victim 2 — i.e. the young boy graduate assistant coach Mike McCleary allegedly saw being anally raped by Sandusky in the Penn State locker room showers in 2002 — and implied that they would be able to produce witnesses who would contradict that the attack ever happened. He also said he believes that a number of the victims listed in the grand jury report will come forward and say that the attacks described against them never occurred. Wish in one hand, buddy… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Last night, Jerry Sandusky was interviewed by telephone by NBC’s Bob Costas on “Rock Center.” Sandusky, of course, is the former assistant football coach at Penn State who is accused child sexual abuse against eight alleged victims. When asked by Costas if he is a pedophile, Sandusky replied with a curt, “No.” But he did admit, ”I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.” He also admitted to some wrongdoing, saying, “I shouldn’t have showered with those kids.”  Keep reading »

  • The Devil appeared on “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Weekend Update” and quit his job upon learning the details of the Penn State scandal. Because people who rape children (and people who protect child rapists!) are the kind of evil even the Devil wants nothing to do with. [Hulu]
  • Did you know that Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who is accused of child sexual assault on eight minors, was released on a mere $100,000 unsecured bail? Which he doesn’t have to pay unless he fails to show up for a court hearing? And that, despite the prosecutor’s request, he doesn’t have to wear a leg monitor? Hmm, wonder if this gentle treatment has anything to do with the fact that the judge, Leslie Dutchcot, is a volunteer with The Second Mile? You know, the children’s charity that Sandusky set up and used as a way of meeting his victims. [Deadspin]
