This week's Douchetard: The Legendary Rush Limbaugh
Every now and then one has to rely on a failsafe. There are some legendary Douchetards out there. Billy O'Reilly, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, Joe the Plummer and yes, the Jabba the Hutt of them all, Rush Limbaugh.
I haven't really payed much attention to the news this week. Real life took precedence, as it does sometimes. Anyway, so ya, I hadn't been keeping a keen eye out for the extraordinarily douchy, but Rush Limbaugh, gawd love him, I knew he would always come through in a pinch. What did Rush do this week? Well, he tried to buy into the NFL. He wanted to be an owner of the St. Louis Rams. How'd that work out for him? Um, not so well. Turns out many of the the guys that play for the Rams are (gasp!) black and well they weren't all that comfortable with the idea of a perceived bigot and a racial polarizing character like Rush, becoming the 'boss'. The NFL listened to the players, Rush's dream of owning an NFL team was squashed. Poor bugger.
Here are a few of Rush's greatest hits (settle down Geddy Lee, the other Rush): (hat tip About.com)
~ And don't forget, Sherrod Brown is black. There's a racial component here, too. - the 2006 Ohio Senate primary race involving then-Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), who is white.
~ Too many whites are getting away with drug use...Too many whites are getting away with drug sales...The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them, and send them up the river, too.
~ The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.
~ They oughtta change Black History Month to Black Progress Month and start measuring it.
~ Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.
~ Sorry to say this, I don't think he's been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. - on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, while working as a commentator on ESPN.
How could these players be so blind? He isn't racially insensitive, Rush isn't a controversial figure at all, geesh! At least his good friends at Fox 'News' stood up for him:
So there, Papa Bear still loves you Rush and to top it all off, you fine sir, are the Douchetard of the week! Well done, well done, polite golf claps all around.
