The word "hypocrite" fails to fully encompass an adequate description for a thrice-divorced drug addict who continues to indict everyone else on equal or lesser charges every day in 250 radio markets nationwide. However, the word "racist" encapsulates a more reprehensible aspect of Rush Limbaugh. From Wednesday's broadcast (courtesy of Media Matters):
LIMBAUGH: You just gotta be who you are, and I think it's time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call 'em gangs. You have the Laker Gang, you have the Heat Gang, you have a Timberwolf Gang [distortions of official team names], and let 'em strap up out there, and let 'em market their CDs. Instead of selling concessions, sell CDs out there at the concession stand.
All the players get involved in this, and if a fight breaks out, hey, it's what happens! It's what happens with gangs, and if a cop gets bloodied, you know, that's a bonus for the gang member that pulls that off, and let the fans, you know, go in knowingly. They're going in to watch the Crips and the Bloods out there wherever the neighborhood is where the arena happens to be, and be who you are.
The only thing scarier than El Hemorrhoid's penchant for defaming African American athletes, is the legion of dittoheads who will be repeating the same invectives over dinner tonight. To their kids.
