In a showing of compassion, talking head Rush Limbaugh defended McNabb in the wake of the “not black enough” card played by Bernard Hopkins last week.
During his radio program last Friday, Limbaugh further expounded on the Hopkins’ mess :
CBS described Bernard Hopkins’ rant this way. Quote: “In fact, this was more of a Rush Limbaugh-style rant.” No! I said nothing close to what Bernard Hopkins was saying! I never said a word about McNabb and blackness or African-Americans. I was talking about the media, from start to finish — as you all know. … But this poor guy cannot catch a break, and it’s disgruntled African-Americans that are jumping on his case — and about the way he was raised? His parents are out there… (interruption) It is horrible. It is! It’s distasteful, horrible. His parents are out there having to defend the way they raised him, and all they tried to do was give him opportunity, after opportunity and expose him to various things — he and his brother to various things — in life.
Limbaugh, who will not be invited to the McNabb Christmas family dinner due to his infamous past run-in with the former Eagles quarterback, correctly pointed out the flaw in Hopkins’ beef.
Disagree with Limbaugh about 99.9 percent of what he says, but he is dead on about this.
Hopkins embarrassed himself and did so in a demeaning and foolish manner.
Meanwhile, perhaps on an upcoming show, Limbaugh will offer his thoughts on Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck expressing his joy over the McNabb/Mike Shanahan debacle.
