    Professional athletes have maybe the most underutilized bully pulpit in society.
    Whether you just go by what you see them doing on screen or whether you include all the work that goes on behind the scenes, professional athletes pretty much personify not only physical ability, but all the inner traits that conservatives think they want to promote: discipline, work ethic, goal orientation, sheer aggression, and so on.  Not to mention their wealth.

    When one of them comes out and says something about poverty, bullying, etc., you can't accuse them of just trying to make life easier for themselves.

    Domestic politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.
