Andrew Sullivan is shocked to discover that Rush Limbaugh is, based on the following quote, a racist.
LIMBAUGH: This guy is an utter wrecking ball all by himself on the world stage to the point now of getting embarrassing. This presidency of Obama’s, it doesn’t take much to irritate the left. Try this: “Barack Obama’s presidency is graffiti on the walls of American history.” That’s what his administration is. No more than graffiti on the walls of American history. We have a juvenile delinquent for a president who has ruined so much public and private property, not even his gang is making much of an effort here to protect him. It’s an utter disaster.
And this surprises you?
Andrew Sullivan’s take is that Mr. Limbaugh is doing this to provoke a reaction from the left and so he can proclaim that everyone calls him a racist and thereby claim he’s the one being persecuted. Anybody who made it through Grade 4 can see that. It’s his shtick, just like Don Rickles insults people and Gallagher smashes watermelons. If you have ever listened to his program you’d know that.
