Rush Limbaugh’s a Big Fat Idiot

Many of you probably have seen his comment from Sunday:

“I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.”

Get it? McNabb’s success, and presumably Michael Vick’s stellar play last year, was all a part of the giant liberal media conspiracy.

Here’s McNabb’s reply:

“He said what he said. … I’m sure he’s not the only one that feels that way but it’s somewhat shocking to actually hear that on national TV. An apology would do no good because he obviously thought about it before he said it.”

Which I think, if you parse it, basically translates to “Limbaugh’s an idiot and so is ESPN for hiring him, but if I got upset everything some idiot said something stupid about minorities on TV there’d be no time for practice.” Here’s Limbaugh’s magnanimous response:

“All this has become the tempest that it is because I must have been right about something. If I wasn’t right, there wouldn’t be this cacophony of outrage that has sprung up in the sports writer community.”

Philadelphia won 23-10 over the 2-1 Bills. Rush is a jackass, and so is anyone who takes anything he says seriously.
