They are so inured in their own self-righteousness and need to destroy anyone who does not share their mindset any time they have an audience they whip out the empty platitudes and fiery passion to quash any independent thought. The Super Bowl has always been a showcase of the best NFL teams and the funniest commercials. Nowadays the commercials are made public weeks in advance of the event itself.
