A quick review: Limbaugh was part of a group that was looking to buy the St Louis Rams. The information was leaked, which of course ignited a fury among the left, which meant another retread of the tired-assed racist argument being pulled out, with both misquotes, misinterpreted quotes, and made up quotes dragged out. As a result, the head of the group booted Rush out of necessity.
So let me address a few points (although I really prefer the discussion of policy to dealing with the people behind them):
First, in the case of the business decision, it's not a place for a political hot potato. So once the shitstorm erupted, I can see the need. As for Rush, he had to know that the moment this went public, it was going to be attack city, and it was going to cost him. Look at what happened when he tried his announcing gig. One quote, an assumption of racism, and that was it. It was asshattery to think you could get away with doing something without
As for me, I really didn't give a shit whether he owned a team or not. It's his money to spend, just as it's the money of every liberal to throw their money where they choose. At most, I'd just not patronize them. An example would be Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Probably good stuff, but since they mix flavors with politics, I don't buy their stuff. But I'm not worried about having them thrown out of the freezer section.
My true refined disgust in this matter is reserved for the fucktards that have to make everything political when it really isn't. Next you bastards are going to whine because he doesn't do your preferred charity when he's raising money for cancer treatments (because it's not the politically correct cancer). Actually, this happened with the Pediatric AIDS Foundation a couple decades ago. Money was lost for a good cause because pieces of shit prefer playing politics to actually helping people. It's the insanity of taking a generic ism, and raping a person publicly with it. I don't even care the reason at this point.
Put bluntly (if you've missed it so far), this automatic "scream when it's an ideological opponent" shit has to stop. It happens on both sides of the aisle in Congress, and anywhere anybody has a political opinion. And it's the hallmark of a reactive, unthinking excuse for a mind.
Another thing that has to stop is the pseudoreality of reality TV:
A tip to the family of balloon boy from Jon and Kate: Wait until you've got the money and contract before you start acting like morons.
Apparently, we as a nation have become so obsessed with getting our 15 minutes (really less than 10 with YouTube limits) that people are concocting stories involving their child disappearing up in a balloon so that they can get a pseudoreality show out of it. Used to be, it was a cry for help (because publicity stunts are not new to the world).
Really, this is just too damn ridiculous for me to say much more, other than:
If you want to be famous, work your ass off to do so!
