Please Refrain From Calling Marlins Prez David Samson A Total Scumbag…

…because it’s downright unfair. To prophylactic manufacturers, that is. At least they serve some sort of purpose.

Miami Marlins exec David Samson (above) has been a CSTB fixture for several years, whether for his penis-pump advocacy, personal fitness regiment or running interference for the worst owner in professional sports south of James Dolan. On Thursday, however, Samson managed to hit a new low when New Times’ Kyle Munzenrieder clipped the following excerpt from Samson’s biography for the upcoming season of CBS’ “Survivor” :

When asked what his “personal claim to fame” was, he replied, “Got local government in Miami to contribute over 350 million dollars to a new baseball park during the recession.”

It’s like not only does he know he’s a total asshole, but he’s proud of it.

To put that in perspective, the man was president of team when they won the 2003 World Series. And yet, he’s more proud of the fact that he screwed over taxpayers than he is leading a team to the summit.

Samson also says that one of his strengths is “leading without actually being a leader.”
