We noted yesterday the efforts of an attention-seeking, backward loon to introduce a bill to Congress which would ban gay players in the NFL.
Now, the man to whom the message was targeted has responded.
Jack Burkman is going to need a Delorian, not some bogus bill, if he wants to prevent gay athletes from being in the locker room—

Frankly, a Back to the Future reference from a guy born the year Back to the Future III was released only adds to the public relations-win for Sam, who handled himself with class over the weekend at the Scouting Combine.
And he’s right about the reality of the NFL locker rooms. He’s far from the first gay player, just the first to admit it.
While his on-field work was not as good, Sam has earned plenty of praise for his handling of a delicate situation.
But his handling of old bigots with a hint of laughter hit just the right note as well.
