Rightwing AM radio bloviator Rush Limbaugh was dropped from a group seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams. Limbaugh was to be a limited partner in a bid led by St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts, but Checketts said in a statement Wednesday that Limbaugh’s participation had complicated the effort and the group will move forward without him.
Checketts said he will have no further comment on the bid process.
Limbaugh wasted no time using his radio show to play the victim:
“This is not about the NFL, it’s not about the St. Louis Rams, it’s not about me. This 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. Therefore, this is about the future of the United States of America and what kind of country we’re going to have.”
Got that? The future of America is predicated on Rush getting his way. And I thought only Rush’s waistline was huge.
