Drugbo Takes on Oprah!

Limbaugh Takes Racial Swipe at Obama, Oprah

Rush Limbaugh has taken on his most powerful opponent yet. No, not the president: Oprah. Limbaugh went on a reverse-racism rant on his Tuesday show, declaring that both Oprah and President Obama were only successful because they were black. “Somebody asked me over the weekend, why does somebody earn a lot of money? Because she’s black. It was Oprah,” Rush said. “There’s a lot of guilt out there, show we’re not racists, we’ll make this person wealthy and big and famous.”

Likewise, in Limbaugh’s mind, Obama wouldn’t have been elected if not for his race. “If Obama weren’t black, he’d be a tour guide in Honolulu or he’d be teaching Saul Alinsky constitutional law.” You can read the full transcript here.

    Rush, Beck, Hannity have figured out how to maintain their ratings–they simply say something racially tinged to an attempt to garner attention in the hopes that black folks will get outraged and respond. I don’t know about Limbaugh’s ratings, but Beck’s are down about half from peak:
