Jamie McCourt Slurs Jews, Embarrasses Herself with Idiotic Comment

Although I was quite aware that Jamie McCourt is delusional and living in a fantasy world, I had no idea that she was this mindless. Seriously. Calling herself the “face of the Dodgers” was bad enough and indicative of the breadth of her knowledge, but the remarks she got off on Monday take it to a whole new level of despicability. Here’s what Jamie McCourt said at a Women’s Voices Luncheon, referring to her pending divorce from Frank McCourt:

“I do keep saying, ‘I’m Jewish. I can be bought,'” she jokingly said to a reception of laughter and applause. “But he likes litigation. We’ll see what happens.”

I’m not quite sure what Jamie is, but whatever she is I don’t want to be included in the same category. I do know that Jamie speaks for herself and that her comments make her look like a money-hungry, utter fool. Check that — we already knew from Jamie’s million-dollar-a-month spousal support demands that she was all about the money — this remark only confirms it. What’s worse is that Jamie wasn’t content letting her pathetic views on life speak for herself; she had to speak for the rest of the Jewish people instead. Let me just say that putting a price tag on dignity is an individual choice and has nothing to do with culture or religion. It has everything to do with character. Quite obviously Jamie has little of that. Ditto the people in attendance who found her remark to be humorous. I’m quite surprised her marriage to Frank didn’t last; they seemed like a perfect fit.

125 Years from Koufax to Kershaw but Jamie McCourt’s the Face of the Dodgers

Frank McCourt Jamie McCourtThis Frank and Jamie McCourt divorce junk not only gets uglier by the day, but it also gets more humorous too. As if asking for half a million a month in alimony isn’t bad enough (not to say she doesn’t deserve half of everything but just that it’s an absurd amount of money to live off of), Jamie’s written some funny stuff in her legal declaration. According to the LA Times,

Jamie McCourt claims she was actively involved in the ownership and management of the team from day one, detailing her involvement in executive meetings, hiring and planning decisions, and marketing and community relations initiatives.

“I was the face of the Dodgers,” she claims.

Vin Scully, Manny Ramirez, Tommy Lasorda, Matt Kemp, Russell Martin, Jonathan Broxton, Andre Ethier. All of them take a back seat to Jamie McCourt. And in seven words, Jamie encapsulated most of what I had against the McCourts while they owned the Dodgers. The owners not only felt they were, but also aimed to be more important than everyone else in the organization, including the ones fans care about most — the players.

As if that sentiment isn’t bad enough, Bill Shaikin outlined my biggest gripe with the McCourts in a thorough article this week, and it’s something that should really tick fans off. Frank and Jamie took home between $7-$8 million a year for themselves instead of spending some of that money on payroll. Cliff Lee’s salary was $5.75 million this past season. The Dodgers have also spent the least amount of money on signing bonuses in the draft the past two years of any team in baseball. As we’ve said many times before, the McCheap’s strike again. I just hope the courts force them to sell the team rather than recognize Frank’s sole ownership of the Dodgers.
