    It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball).

    Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. Don’t we all feel better?

      Limbaugh is certainly an act however I don’t think it’s a point of pride in our country when a man is turned out for his political views. Limbaugh doesn’t espouse racism – in fact, these are his very words:

      “My racial views? You mean, my belief in a colorblind society where every individual is treated as a precious human being without regard to his race? Where football players should earn as much as they can and keep as much as they can, regardless of race? Those controversial racial views?”

      Put it this way: what were the chances that Michael Moore or Bill Maher would have been kicked out of a country club for their political views during the Bush years? Even better, what reaction would have exploded in the media if this actually happened?

      This country is tipping dangerously toward the place where only members of the party are allowed to advance. And that was supposed to be the problem with communist countries.
