So Rush "Leader of the Republican Party" Limbaugh decides that he wants to join a group of investors seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams. But, as it turns out, Limbaugh's toxic personality was too much for the NFL and, it seems, his partners. From CNN:
The group of investors seeking to purchase the NFL's St. Louis Rams is dumping Rush Limbaugh from their effort after NFL executives, players and political leaders raised objections to the controversial talk show host's involvement in the bid.
Aw, poor boo-boo kitty. He isn't going to be able to play with the big boys. That's just...well, it's awful isn't it?
Sports media executive Dave Checketts, who is leading the group, announced the
decision in a statement issued Wednesday by his office. "Rush was to be a limited partner — as such, he would have had no say in the direction of the club or in any decisions regarding personnel or operations," the statement said. "This was a role he enthusiastically embraced.”
Yeah, because if it's one thing Rush loves, it's having no say in anything and not being involved in any actual decisions. Right.
"However, it has become clear that his involvement in our group has become a
complication and a distraction to our intentions; endangering our bid to keep
the team in St. Louis. As such, we have decided to move forward without him and
hope it will eventually lead us to a successful conclusion."
And that big "splash!" you hear is ol' Rush being tossed overboard.
On the bright side, it's too late for him to buy the Cubs. Maybe he should just invest his money in one of those pharmaceutical companies. I hear they have customers fairly beating down their doors...
