Limbaugh Responds to Critics of His Bid for Rams


Yesterday on his radio program Rush Limbaugh took a few minutes to address the wave of criticism surrounding his potential purchase (with others) of the St. Louis Rams. 

Limbaugh's website has the entire transcript of his talk in a posting titled (meekly): "State-Run Media Scum Smear Rush Using Fabricated Quotes." 

Here's a taste of the monologue: 
"When I started this radio program in 1988, I had never been called a racist, a bigot, a sexist, a homophobe. People who knew me never thought that. It was ridiculous.  But then I got on the radio as a conservative and all of a sudden I started being attacked as a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe."
