Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is still playing the victim card in his failed attempt to buy a share of the St. Louis Rams. Rather than own up to his past racial comments, he blames his partners’ decision to drop him on the media’s contempt for conservatives (which, apparently, doesn’t extend to all the other NFL owners who are conservatives). Limbaugh wrote in a Wall Street Journal commentary that claims of racism are “being used to try to keep citizens who don’t share the left’s agenda from participating in the full array of opportunities this nation otherwise affords each of us.” He even likened criticism he received to attempts to smear Clarence Thomas when he was nominated for the U.S. Supreme Court. “These intimidation tactics are working and spreading, and they are a cancer on our society,” Limbaugh wrote.
