The Daily Beast’s Conor Friedersdorf investigates:
National Review’s Andy McCarthy went farther. “So Much for the Post-Racial America,” he wrote. “That’s how Rush treats people — in the Martin Luther King aspiration that the content of one’s character is what matters, not the color of one’s skin. Yet, in the media narrative, he’s somehow the one who’s got a race issue — and the guys who trade on race, live and breathe it 24/7, are held up as our public conscience.”
Actually one could call Rush “Whiner In Chief” considering what he had to say about why his defeat occurred:
This is about the future of the United States of America and what kind of country we’re going to have…..This is the latest assault on people who believe in rugged individualism and liberty and freedom who threaten the whole notion of state control tyranny and central authority which is typified by the Obama administration and the Democrat Party.
It boggles the mind. For someone who claims a belief in rugged individualism and rails against “victim politics” while he preaches personal responsibility, it was almost jarring to hear Rush whine about “tyranny” on the left when it was his compadres on the right who just said no, and didn’t defend him. Added to that this fantasy that the Administration has any influence on the NFL.
