‘Sacked: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Rush Limbaugh’

Crossposted at Daily Kos

… is a book about Limbaugh’s unsuccessful bid to become a co-owner of the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League.  It will hit book stores all over the country tomorrow, filled with hot air and inane explanations of why this good man was sabotaged from becoming an active participant in America’s favorite pastime, professional football.

Caller #1: Mega-dittos, Rush.  Now that your brief foray into professional football has been sabotaged by liberals, what are you gonna do next?

El Rushbo: I’m going to Disney World! In Obama’s America, an honest white man does not get equality of opportunity.  I’m just going to go back and lead the Republican Party to victory in 2010, 2012, and beyond.  The pinko, socialist, communist, racist owners and their toadies in the NFL will have hell to pay!

And so it went all day today in Rush’s World.

The Week in Editorial Cartoons – The Last Edition

Crossposted at Daily Kos.  Look in the Comments Section of Daily Kos for more cartoons on the economy and sports.  Somehow, I couldn’t fit them in the main text of the diary.


This weekly diary takes a look at the past week’s important news stories from the perspective of our leading editorial cartoonists (including a few foreign ones) with analysis and commentary added in by me.

When evaluating a cartoon, ask yourself these questions:

1. Does a cartoon add to my existing knowledge base and help crystallize my thinking about the issue depicted?

2. Does the cartoonist have any obvious biases that distort reality?

3. Is the cartoonist reflecting prevailing public opinion or trying to shape it?

The answers will help determine the effectiveness of the cartoonist’s message.
