He Says: It’s Because I Was Right

My empathy goes away.

Philadelphia Inquirer | 10/01/2003 | McNabb: No apology wanted:

“McNabb said his biggest concern was the thoughts of families and kids who watched Limbaugh’s remarks.

‘My worries were not about what was said, but about the people who were watching,’ McNabb said. ‘What about the people in the African-American homes, the kids, the parents, when they hear something like that on national TV, on ESPN, what do they think?’

Limbaugh tackled the subject again today on his radio talk show.

‘All this has become the tempest that it is because I must have been right about something,’ Limbaugh said. ‘If I wasn’t right, there wouldn’t be this cacophony of outrage that has sprung up in the sports writer community.'”

That’s right, Rush. Black people being outraged only proves that you are right. What else could it mean?

And his listeners all show smug smiles and nod.
