:Rush Limbaugh is not an acceptable sports investor because of his politics. How else to interpret the state of a sports world where Keith Olbermann can be on Sunday Night Football and Rush Limbaugh's hard-earned money can't be spent as a partial owner of a team in a sport he loves?
Mark Steyn has commentary here
Any bets we'll be seeing pro-Limbaugh signs at future Rams games?
If the Left wants to have a dialogue on race so badly, why don't any lefty noteworthies do some serious dialoguing with Limbaugh? Or is lecturing more your style?Update:
Another great quote, linked by Tammy Bruce
What is even more pathetic is that the NFL has shown greater tolerance for murderers, drug dealers, rapists, and dog killers than a talk show host.
Update: It gets better. The article Tammy linked is here. Author Elisabeth Meinecke quotes an unexpected Limbaugh supporter - Keith Olbermann:
"There're now gonna be character tests for sports owners? There'll only be three of them left," Olbermann said. "Unless they beat the Vikings Sunday, as of next Thursday, it will have been a full year since the Rams won a game. My God, if Limbaugh wants to buy them, far be it for me to tell him he’s flushing his money down a rat hole."
Hm, I wonder how Ted Turner would score on that ideology test. He'd probably get a Nobel Peace Prize.
