On the occasion of the passing of Yankee owner, George Steinbrenner, Rush Limbaugh engages in some hearty pro-capitalist race bating.
Leaving aside the race thing for a moment, (Really, Rush? So the white players were payed in what? Cases of chewing tobacco and green stamps?) how sad is it that Rush chose to emphasize simply the amounts of income he generated. Forget about all the World Series wins or his late in life charity work. (Which granted, is tainted by the fact that the man had a managerial style that belonged more in a “Conan” novel than in Baseball.) For Rush, it’s all about what kind of cash flow a man can generate that makes him worthy.
And on top of that, there’s the racism that states that African Americans can only make money under the patronage of old white men.
I hope Rush’s new wife is into Necrophilia because that man is dead inside.
