Fumble!

Allow me, for just a moment, a brief episode of schadenfreude

His Bloviatedness, Rush “Pass the Painkillers” Limbaugh, has been dropped from the group bidding for ownership of the St. Louis Rams. Although not available for comment about this event, Mr. Limbaugh characterized the opposition to his potential part-ownership of an NFL franchise thus:

”This is not about the NFL, it’s not about the St. Louis Rams, it’s not about me,” Limbaugh said. ”This is about the ongoing effort by the left in this country, wherever you find them, in the media, the Democrat Party, or wherever, to destroy conservatism, to prevent the mainstreaming of anyone who is prominent as a conservative.

”Therefore, this is about the future of the United States of America and what kind of country we’re going to have.”

Wow. Whatever medications you’re taking, pass ’em down. It has nothing to do with Liberal/Conservative, Rush; what it has to do with is that some people, make that many people, despite your delusional assertions to the contrary, hate you.

Hate. You.

The fact that the National Football League felt squeamish about letting you be even a minor player in the ownership of a team says something about the integrity of the league – or at least something about their desire to steer clear of unnecessary problems.

And you, sir, are an unnecessary problem.

  1. So Big Pharma is whining discrimination? That’s an awfully..’liberal’ tactic, isn’t it? Personally, I agree with you – this isn’t a Liberal/Conservative thing, most of the owners are as conservative as it gets. This is a *free-market* thing – having an openly-racist owner (Donovan McNabb, anyone?) that’ll alienate 70% of your players and a significant portion of your fan base is a recipe for financial suicide.

    It’s not all good though, apparently they’ve been having a contest on Twitter to choose a new name for the team to reflect the new ownership:

    And I, for one, regret that we won’t get to see “The Missouri Manboobs” take to the field.

    And it does deprive me of something in the sports field that I can point at and laugh – oh well, there’s always hockey – how about that Toronto defence? (sorry, Kev…)

  2. Defence? How about their offence? How about the fact that they are a desparate shame on the league and anyone that supports them by buying a ticket is simply adding to the problem by making it less likely that their ownership will change anything. Boycott the Toronto Make Believes – they are a blight and should not be shown on Hockey Night in Canada.

    And yes, I am, ahem, was a Leafs fan.
