Bill Maher on Rush Limbaugh
    #1976528 - 10/03/03 04:07 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Rushing to Judgement

Rush Limbaugh had to resign from his ESPN NFL broadcasting job for suggesting his fellow sportscasters overrated Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb because they wanted to see a black quarterback succeed. Limbaugh also didn't help himself when he outted McNabb's wife as a CIA operative.

But, this time, Rush Limbaugh isn't the big, fat idiot. He wasn't implying that we'd all be better off if society were segregated, as Trent Lott did, or that blacks don't possess the "necesseties" to be baseball managers, as Al Campanis did. He was simply suggesting that some sportscasters, recognizing a historic glass ceiling for African-American quarterbacks, may have been practicing a kind of "accolades affirmative action."

But, as we all know, in this country, when anybody makes anyone uncomfortable ever, they must lose their job. Sports Center is next.

I think the whole thing got blown out of proportion.

mcnabb crying about personal attacks...

pfft.

I'm not one to rush to rush's defense, but why can't
he make a statement like that and begin some discourse
on the subject?

is he vilified simply because race was part of the equation
he alluded to?

is all discussion regarding race hands-off from now on
lest ye face the penalty of bad press?

If you're a liberal then you'd accuse a republican of such.

But it goes either way, both parties have their good n bad people. But it's mostly the liberals who pick out anything they can get to make the republican look bad.

I was expecting you to say, in response to that
comment something more like:

"it is if you are a conservative"

because a conservative couldn't possibly talk about
race without him being a racist...right?

I won't even touch that "but it's mostly the liberals..."
comment.

I propose that the following words be banned from this forum: liberal,conservative,right,and left.
Maybe then we could actually have rational discussions that aren't based on rhetoric.

Just a thought....and a very unfunny joke.

On a related note,I found something that will make all people on the political spectrum feel the same...oxycontin.Whether you are a follower of Hitler or Stalin and everything in between,opiates are probably enjoyable to you.

RAW's Guns and Dope Party is looking better all the time.

I wouldn't touch oxycontin with a 1000 foot pole, unless I was in great pain. Bad fucking news.

If someone else wants to, well, it's their funeral. Knock yourself out.
