Rush resigns ESPN
After three days of criticism for his outrageous comments about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, Rush Limbaugh just resigned from his short-lived gig as a sportscaster. On the show Sunday NFL Countdown, Limbaugh claimed that McNabb was overrated and the only reason he got media attention was ''the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well.'' Earlier today Democratic candidates Wesley Clark, Howard Dean and Rev. Al Sharpton all called for ESPN to fire Limbaugh. On his radio show, Limbaugh stood by his comments and claimed his first amendment rights were threatened by the complaints. Then he quit.

I just have to wonder what the folks at ESPN were thinking when they hired him. They hired an incendiary gadfly and—surprise—he said something offensive on the air. Despite having lost some weight. Rush Limbaugh is a big, fat idiot. He has always been a big, fat idiot. He will always be a big, fat idiot.

All I can say is: “what a wimp” and “good.”
