    Of course they weren't. They were fired with help from the PC police.

    yeah.. because "all that's left to the white guys is the coaching jobs"

    and

    "they're keeping him around as QB just because he's black"

    are exactly the same as:

    the american people will be comfortable enough with him to vote for him. (which is really all he said).

    but you know, it's not like there were enough threads on this subject anyway.

    Hey Jillybean,

    If you're gonna slap quotes around something, you might consider getting it right. :thup:

    And Limbaugh is just the garnish anyway. The meal is in the title.

    Go ahead and tell me what Jimmy the Greek said isn't true. :eusa_whistle:

    Rush was also under investigation for his illegal drug activities at the time...so it's hard to really say why he resigned.

    Silly me.

    I should've known the knee-jerk lefties would horn in on the Limbaugh bit.

    How about Jimmy the Greek Ravi? What did he say that wasn't true?

    Nothing. He shouldn't have been fired.

    Funny about Rush, though. I was just reading that the sportswriter that kicked off the controversy wasn't claiming Rush was racist against blacks...but that Rush was claiming the media was racist.

    :lol:

    The Limpbagh comment (which I saw in real time when he said it) was plainly and clearly directed at the sports media, not Donovan McNabb himself.

    But don't try to tell that to the race hustlers.
