Rush-ing Penalty in the NFL

Well, I have to confess that I’m feeling a bit sorry for good old Rush Limbaugh this week. Here’s a guy who has more $$$$ and more influence than any 100 Americans, but he still can’t be part owner of an NFL football team.

Associated Press is reporting:

“Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has been dropped from a group seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams.

Limbaugh was to be a limited partner in a bid led by St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts, but Checketts said in a statement Wednesday that Limbaugh’s participation had complicated the effort. The group will move forward without him.

Checketts said he will have no further comment on the bid process. Limbaugh did not immediately respond to an e-mail sent late Wednesday seeking comment on Checketts’ decision.

Limbaugh said on his radio show earlier Wednesday that he had been inundated with e-mails from listeners who supported him in the bid.

“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.”

So is this political payback or just another attempt to smack down Rush whenever he tries to swim in the mainstream? Personally, I don’t understand why the NFL doesn’t want his money. They’ve given Michael Vick, a convicted dog killer, a second chance. Why can’t Rush have a first chance? Bizarre.

    More evidence that Limbaugh is either losing it or plays his fans for idiots: Today on his show he told his audience that Warren Buffett has no COMMON SENSE.
