Man, what a ton of bricks has landed on Rush Limbaugh! No sooner did he quit ESPN for his gratuitous remarks on black QBs than the entire world's media comes after him for being a pain-killer junkie. Dang! That can't be a coincidence, can it? Do you know how much fodder those two events in such quick succession are going to give him to work with? It'll keep him busy for months! He's going to be spinning the wheel of paranoia until he makes himself the center of all plots everywhere. Hmm.
His remarks about Donovan McNabb were dumb, frankly. Yes, it's taken a while to see blacks routinely playing quarterback in the NFL, but they start for close to a third of the clubs now, so no one really thinks anything of it. And, of course, the most dominant players at all positions in the NFL are now black and no one points that out.
If, however, Limbaugh had gone and criticized the NFL's head coaching policies, then I daresay everyone (except for some on the lunatic fringe of the "civil rights" movement) would have supported him. You know what that's all about, right? The NFL will fine you big time if you are a team owner who does not at least interview a black applicant when hiring for the head coaching position. Isn't that absurd? You have to pretend to be considering a black man for the position, even though it could be well known (and to that black man himself) that you already have someone else in mind. What nonsense! Limbaugh would have done well to have attacked that aspect of NFL policy.
As for this pain-killer thang, I just don't know what to say except that someone must have let slip the dogs of war from all the network kennels at once. What a mess. Must be that vast left-wing conspiracy at work again.
