Rush Limbaugh apparently isn't good enough for the NFL

Rush Limbaugh not good enough for the NFL? No, it's the other way around. The NFL is not good enough for Rush Limbaugh.

In case you've had your head buried in the sand the last couple of weeks, you may have noticed the flap over Rush Limbaugh's participation in a group of investors looking to buy the St. Louis Rams NFL football team.

This "little distraction" even went so far as the floor of the US House of Representatives, when congresscritter, Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) stuck her 2 cents into the controversy and "urged the NFL to not let Rush Limbaugh buy the St. Louis Rams." Don't they have other, more serious things to concern themselves with in Congress, than who might or might not become an owner in the NFL?

Then there is the lamentable comments by Commissioner Roger Goodell, who said on Tuesday, "we're all held to a high standard here, and I think divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about."

High standard? This from an organization filled with ex-cons, gang members, and of course, those addicted to steroids? Give me a break. Rush, if he hadn't been dropped from the group of investors, looking to buy the Rams, would have elevated the status of the the NFL, to something more respectable.

But we should not really be surprised by this latest attack on the conservative icon. From the office of President Barrack Hussein Obama, down to the lowliest, leftwing bloggers, Rush has always been attacked by those who would curtail the 1st amendment, whenever it doesn't suit their needs.

From the latest White House attacks on Fox News, it's obvious that there's a massive left wing conspiracy going on to silence all oppositional commentary. I think a lot of this stems from the recent revelation about ACORN, when it was shown that some of their members were advocating child prostitution.

I know there are some people who are calling for a boycott of the NFL because of the Michael Vick controversy. That's fine. I don't have a problem with that, and in fact, I think a boycott because of the sad way Rush Limbaugh has been treated is in order as well.

Whether you agree with Rush or not, does not matter. If this can happen to him, it can happen to ANYONE. Well, anyone who might be a Conservative that is.
