You're Nothing to Me Now . . .

A couple of years ago, Rush Limbaugh failed in his attempt to become a part owner of the Saint Louis Rams. At the time, I wrote that, "I scarcely blame the NFL for not wanting to devote all of their public relations to defending and contextualizing the ravings of one of its part-owners on an almost daily basis. And that is what they would have to do if Limbaugh was involved."

After the most recent Limbaugh freakout, which has resulted in his show bleeding sponsors, I'm sure that the members of the NFL hierarchy are breathing a sigh of relief that they avoided the nightmare of allowing him into their exclusive club; even as Limbaugh's allies go to the mattresses to contain the damage wrought by the man quickly earning a reputation as the Fredo Corleone of the Right.
