Poor Rush

Leonard Pitts, Jr., with tongue firmly planted in cheek, feels Rush Limbaugh’s pain.

If they can deny one rich, racially inflammatory media lout his constitutional right to own a football team, what’s to stop them from denying another? This is a clear and present danger. Pat Buchanan, Glenn Beck . . . none of us are safe while this injustice stands.

And besides, what lesson does this teach our children?

That there are things (like respectability) even money can’t buy? That there are doors (like the one to the owner’s box) even fame can’t open? That you only have one reputation and it’s not stain-resistant, so you’d better not soil it? That karma is a female dog?

Do you really want your children to learn that sort of socialist claptrap? I don’t. How dare the high and mighty NFL act like the things we say carry consequences?

So let’s stand up for Brother Limbaugh. Indeed, here and now, I am starting a legal fund to help him carry on the fight. I will make the first contribution — a shiny new Franklin Roosevelt dime.

What about you? Wouldn’t you like to see poor Rush get what he deserves?

Please give generously.

The check is in the mail.
