You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I remember reading somewhere that turnabout is fair play - is it?
Personally, I think they should have let Rush continue in the ownership group. If the comments he made are that "divisive", then I'd imagine that there'd be players who wouldn't want to play for the Rams - irregardless of how financially lucrative it might be. Instead of stopping him from owning the Rams, let him own them, and see just how deep his pockets are - how much money the Rams would have to spend to counteract the negative publicity if a player like Terrell Owens or Donovan McNabb refused to play for the Rams because of what Rush said.
Here's a little something to consider -- Before he was elected Governor of Texas, George W. Bush was managing general partner of the Texas Rangers MLB team from 1989-1994. There is talk that when Bug Selig resigns as Commissioner of Major League Baseball, that President Bush will be asked to be the next Commissioner. Whether or not he will accept the position remains to be seen. But, if he does, what will the left do?

If there was libel, there are legal recourses, and Limbaugh is perfectly free to go that route. I will not complain nor condemn him for doing so.
I am so confused by you sometimes and it has nothing to with not knowing whether you are a chick or dude.
