Comparing Rush Limbaugh To a Plantation Owner

In other words, as usual, the liberals devolve to name calling when they don't like someone. It's really irritating and wearing thin.

In this case it's a Pulizer Prize-winning author named Karen Hunter. She has such American classics as Pimpology: The 48 Laws of the Game, Don't Blame It on Rio: The Real Deal Behind Why Men Go to Brazil for Sex and On the Down Low: A Journey Into the Lives of "Straight" Black Men Who Sleep With Men. Somehow, MSNBC thinks this qualifies her to talk about a conservative talk show host who wants to buy a minority stake in a football team.

"I can just see the visions of plantation grandeur dancing in his head as we speak," Hunter said. "Yeah, it doesn't make you a racist to want to own a team. But, it does kind of with all his history question his power position over these players who make millions of dollars and his ability to be able to move them around, deny them contracts and do whatever he wants willy-nilly. It's the ultimate power position to be an owner of an NFL team."

Never mind that he is going to be a MINORITY owner. As in, not the only one. As in, not owning enough to make his opinion count.
