If Rush Limbaugh wants to buy a football team, then he should be allowed to buy a football team. Why the hell not, right? The guy has the funds to do so, he’s not a criminal, and it is within his right as an American citizen to be able to make a legal purchase of property that is, in turn, legally and willingly sold to him.
This whole “Ban Rush” fest is getting ridiculously out of hand. It seems like every single person on the planet wants to keep him from spending his money as he wishes. I don’t even like the guy. But I respect his right to exchange currency for goods and services within the confines of our nation.
Limbaugh is a controversial figure, there’s no getting around that. He has made a living ripping other individuals, essentially turning himself into a target for scrutiny in the process. He has said some things that cannot ever be atoned for, that have tarnished the image he seemingly cares little about, and that have led to this whirlwind of speculation over his potential ownership of the NFL’s St. Louis Rams.
Somebody out there doesn’t want Rush Limbaugh to buy the Rams. Psssh. Sure, we give the Mormon church free reign over the FCC but a rich, fat white man with his sights set on running a plantation or six can’t buy the worst team in the NFL.
This is America, people. If Rush Limbaugh wants to own the Rams, who are we to stop him. Donovan McNabb might never play for the guy, but for every McNabb there’s at least three or four Matt Cassels in the NFL.
