I'd like to think it's the OxyContin talking, but no-- Rush Limbaugh has just confirmed again that he's kind of racist.
Too obvious? Too "Dog Bites Man"? Maybe, but I think it bears repeating in this political silly season, when the spectre of Republican defeat at the polls has really revealed a lot of pent-up anxiety among the chattering classes. Cokie Roberts' geography problems, Lou Dobbs' brush-off of government surveillance, Maureen Dowd's ongoing idiocy, even Russ Feingold's bizarre quasi-endorsement of McCain: to paraphrase Chris Rock, I haven't seen this many white people upset since they cancelled M*A*S*H.
