On Opinion: Rush to the rescue?

"Dear David from Georgia: I want to thank you for the email you sent last week. It made me laugh out loud." I guess we have to take Pitts' word he actually received this email. He wouldn't possibly contrive it for an easy column....

Racism is a two-way street. All humans should be treated with respect. Just some can't keep from stirring the pot.

He certainly helped to rescue us against Memphis in 2008. Everybody remembers Chalmers and his 3, and Collins with his 3 to set up the 3, but Rush's layup in overtime has largely been forgotten.

Rush got himself wide open, received a pass, missed the layup, got his own rebound and put it back for two points. IIRC this gave KU a 4 point lead and gave us a great momentum boost.

Not to minimize the rest of that dream team, but Brandon came to the rescue at the perfect moment.

Rush, what a joke...used to be a dj back in Pittsburgh PA back in the early 70's(Jeff Christie). The other gimp, Bill O'Reilly was on that horrible tabloid show called A Current Affair...both of them are really just hookers, do anything for a buck and really, only dumb people enjoy/believe them.

I had a relative comment to me that the President was doing a disservice to the country by playing golf and entertaining a "womanizer." They believe Rush is a god instead of the blowhard he is. I responded with "so its okay that a serial cheater/divorcer support romney or run for the office himself." they are like rush, they just dont think before they think or speak.

I'm always suspicious when a left wingnut quotes Rush. Does he have cites, dates, audio? Some of the statements attributed to Rush are out of context and some are downright lies. People like Pitts won't be happy until we only allowed to think and speak like him.

Well, the topic is one thing, but I dunno, this seems like a long column to respond to something written by somebody who's brain is broken enough to consider Rush Limbaugh a "gentleman".

I suppose it's all right as a vehicle to reaching others, but it still seems like writing a three paragraph, well-thought out post to some of our resident wingers. In other words, a total waste of energy.

Pilonidal Cyst is no gentleman. Entertainer? Perhaps, but nothing more than a bloviator. He drags his minions' money to the bank and laughs, in between sex trips to the islands with his illegal Viagra prescriptions.

Why? Because Rush Limbaugh is such an easy target? To quote Karen Teegarden, the founder of, he's the best recruiting tool any women's organization could ever wish for.

Rush Limbaugh scrapes for subject matter every day.

Mr. Pitts is scraping for subject matter today.
