Why Rush Limbaugh being able to buy the Rams is important
A "liberal" of my acquaintance thinks the height of "humor" is to question me about whether I listened to Rush Limbaugh that day. In fact, I rarely listen to him and I no doubt disagree with him on many topics. And, normally my concern for whether someone could buy an NFL team ranks right down there with my interest in, say, what Sting had for breakfast.
However, in the case of Limbaugh - who's considering being part of a group to by the St. Louis Rams - it's important and I urge everyone to support his right to buy the team. That doesn't mean he should, but he should have the right to do so. The reason it's important is because the "bad guys" are going all out to block him and in general the left-leaning establishment is lined up against his plan.
One way you can help is to find those who have helped spread those bogus quotes and then discuss them in the same, effective style as used at this site rather than in other, less effective ways. Holding the bogus quote against people like Rachel Maddow can be used to discredit her, reduce her effectiveness, and send a message to others, but I can't (and will not be able to and have no intention to) do that all alone.
10/14/09 UPDATE: According to this, the group led by Dave Checketts of the NHL St. Louis Blues is going to drop Limbaugh in order to move forward. And, another golden opportunity to discredit the "bad guys" has mostly been lost due to the general incompetence of many Limbaugh-supporting leaders.
...Why does anyone give a damn what (Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton) say?... ...There's only one way this nonsense ever goes away: When we say "enough!" and tell the race-baiters their time is up. It's too much of an industry, so it probably won't happen tomorrow.
It's not going to happen ever with people like McCarthy and the rest of those at NRO around. For a contrary example, see how I do things around here, specifically how I approach biased news stories and where I place the emphasis. Doing that would be a way to cut off Jackson and Sharpton from part of their support, but few people are willing to do it.
