UPDATED AUDIO TO INCLUDE SHATNER RIFF
RUSH: I wasn’t gonna mention this. Get up sound bite four. I wasn’t gonna mention this, but I’ve decided that I’m gonna mention this. Let me replay 14 seconds of me from this program yesterday. See if you remember this.
RUSH ARCHIVE: This is not news to anybody who has known of this guy. This guy’s a big Democrat. The only reason he’s in trouble right now is he did not give enough money to Obama.
RUSH: That was your host — your beloved, lovable, harmless fuzzball host, El Rushbo — talking about Donald Sterling at the open of the program, making a joke. The only reason that Donald Sterling’s… He’s given to Democrat causes left and right, and the NAALCP, but he must not have given enough to Obama.
Well, over at CNN, they interpreted that to mean that I was defending Sterling! How did they get there? I don’t know how they get there. Erin Burnett played the sound bite and then went to Mr. Black Hole himself, Don Lemon (who sleeps with men, proudly) for comment, and this is what he said…
LEMON: If we didn’t know then that Rush Limbaugh is a Stunt King, then we know now, because there is no excuse for this behavior. There’s no excuse for anyone, uh, to try to make an excuse for someone like Donald Sterling. Clearly he’s just trying to get the attention.
RUSH: You have a story like Sterling and all these people go on TV and they try to outdo each other being the most offended, the most outraged, the most hurt, the most harmed, the most sensitive, the most in touch and so forth. I come along and say, “You know what? This is nothing new, this guy; everybody in the know has known about Donald Sterling for years,” and they turn that into I defend Sterling?
