It didn’t take long for a group trying to buy the St. Louis Rams to figure out that they’d be better off without the participation of radio talk host Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh was to be a limited partner in a group led by Dave Checketts, chairman of the St. Louis Blues hockey team, but his presence attracted opposition from some NFL players, and at least one owner and the NFL commissioner made it clear they were rather cool to the idea of Limbaugh being connected with the league. Al Sharpton, who never saw a light on a TV camera without running toward it, also decried Limbaugh's bid, but who really cares what Sharpton says. Limbaugh, predictably, said the opposition to his involvement "is about the ongoing effort by the left in this country, wherever you find them, in the media, the Democrat Party, or wherever, to destroy conservatism, to prevent the mainstreaming of anyone who is prominent as a conservative." As if often the case, Limbaugh is lying. His talk show and the conservative Fox News are hugely popular in this country. The problem isn’t that Limbaugh is a conservative. It's that he's a horse's behind. There's an old saying to the effect that when you make your bed, you have to lie in it. In Limbaugh's case, that means that when you‘re a divisive, polarizing racist, sometimes it comes back to bite you.
