Everybody's taking pot shots at Rush Limbaugh for his comments about Rex Grossman — the FanHaus, Deadspin, the Postmen — and frankly, I've had enough. Let's take a look at Limbaugh's "controversial" comments:

It's just — they're focusing on this guy like they don't focus on anybody! And I tell you, I know what it is. The media, the sports media, has got social concerns that they are first and foremost interested in, and they're dumping on this guy — Rex Grossman — for one reason, folks, and that's because he is a white quarterback.

Let me ask you this, sexy readers: when has Rush been wrong about his assessment of NFL and race? He criticized Donovan McNabb for being a black quarterback, and what has he gone on to do? Never win a Super Bowl and get injured in two consecutive seasons, that's what. And look at Peyton Manning: sure, he got the Super Bowl MVP, but a lot of people in sports media think black running backs like Dominic Rhodes deserved the honor. And all the media wanted to talk about before the game was black coaches Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy, when who got them there? White quarterbacks.

Basically, this is yet another widespread reverse-racist media conspiracy. And people making fun of Rush is part of the cover-up. I hope I've cleared that up for everybody.

(Yo, Rush — you still gonna hook me up with some of that OxyContin, right?)
