Haters Unite To Rip Danica Patrick [NoeBrainer]

Danica Patrick won the pole for the 55th running of the Daytona 500.  So, why do so many people have a problem with the female driver?

Danica Patrick is an interesting figure in the world of NASCAR.  After winning the pole for the upcoming Daytona 500 on Sunday, she is experiencing her fair share of detractors.  Plenty of people are lining up to say that Danica hasn’t accomplished anything at all, and that all of the coverage of her achievement is undeserved.

I find Danica’s detractors to be completely off base.  These people object to the coverage of Danica’s achievement.  She’s a big name (like it or not) who just achieved something that no other female has ever done; claim the pole for the prestigious Daytona 500.  Sorry, but that is an achievement that deserves to be covered.

Danica’s detractors wouldn’t be saying the same things about her supposed hollow achievement if it were one of their friends who just claimed the Daytona 500 pole.  They would be trumpeting the great achievement.  This shows how people are off base when they say that winning the pole is meaningless.

Whether they realize it or not, Danica Patrick’s naysayers are simply objecting to the amount of coverage devoted to Danica’s achievement.  They are confusing their objection about coverage by saying that winning the pole doesn’t matter.  They’re confused and they don’t even know it.
