Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Rush Limbaugh

Why is a bunch of rich white men keeping another rich man out of their private club a news story? It's been 2 days now and there are no signs of the coverage letting up. So Rush Limbaugh was uninvited to join a consortium of rich men buying the Rams -- so what?

Joe Scarborough for the last two mornings blames Rev Sharpton. Rush blames the media and 'liburrels'. As if the media, liberals, or Sharpton have ANY influence on rich clubby white men! Why would the NFL insiders listen to public conversation on anything they did? For GAWD sakes they re-hired Michael Vick! They couldn't care less what the public thinks -- only if it can turn a profit. Obviously they thought Rush's money and presence in their club had no value or they would have been falling all over themselves to include him in their little rich boy's club.

Can we talk about something important now?
