Hey Your Racist

According to Rush Limbaugh you are a racist if:

1) You're a member of the news media.

2) You voted for Obama.

3) You support Obama in any way, shape, or form.

4) If you watched any of the inauguration coverage this week.

Why, you ask? Because Obama's father was black. "Because his father was black, because this is the first black president." Well, just allow me to post the whole quote:
You know racism in this country is the exclusive province of the left. We're witnessing racism all this week that led up to the inauguration. We're being told that we have to hope he succeeds. That we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend forward, backward, whichever. Because his father was black, because this is the first black president. We've got to accept this. The racism that everybody thinks exists on our side of the aisle has been on full display throughout their primary campaign.
Okay. I am going to admit that I really don't understand Limbaugh's point. Is he saying that is you're a fan of President Obama you must hate white people? (And would the inverse there be that if you liked Bush you must therefore hate people of color?) I don't know. Maybe he's saying racism is no big deal. All except that directed at white people like Limbaugh or his cohort Hannity. Because airing inauguration coverage of America's first African American president is racist against white people. Or something. Fuck, I don't know.

What I do know is that Rush Limbaugh "needs to sit down and drink a big ol' cuppa Hush Up Now."
