There's No More Racism In America

This is from Tuesday, so apologies if it's old news, but if you're like me and the list of blogs you view has been whittled down to almost nothing, you might have missed this:
Limbaugh: I want to know. I look at Iowa, I look at Illinois—I want to see the murders. I want to see the looting. I want to see all the stuff that happened in New Orleans. I see devastation in Iowa and Illinois that dwarfs what happened in New Orleans. I see people working together. I see people trying to save their property…I don’t see a bunch of people running around waving guns at helicopters, I don’t see a bunch of people running shooting cops. I don’t see a bunch of people raping people on the street. I don’t see a bunch of people doing everything they can…whining and moaning—where’s FEMA, where’s BUSH. I see the heartland of America. When I look at Iowa and when I look at Illinois, I see the backbone of America.
Lies, racism, lies, racism and more lies. Whites good, Blacks bad. And apparently, there are no POC in Iowa and Illinois. It makes me fucking sick to hear this evil fuck praising my state for these reasons.

I know we say this every time we highlight this useless sack of shit, or Savage, or Malkin, or Beck, or any of the other poisonous toads on the Right, but what the fuck is this person doing on the air?

Please, don't get in comments and say "Well, it's Limbaugh, what do you expect?" I'll tell you what I expect, I expect outrage when this shit goes out over the air, and I expect this person to be fired. If Imus can get booted off the air for his racist idiocy, why the hell does Limbaugh still have a job?


Update: Digby has more.
