Limbaugh's NFL bid turns political

Why is Al Sharpton opening his mouth again?
In a letter sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Sharpton wrote that he was “disturbed” to hear about Limbaugh’s interest in the Rams and asked for a meeting with Goodell “to discuss the myriad of reasons as to why [Limbaugh] should not be given an opportunity to do so.”

Sharpton argued that Limbaugh has been “anti-NFL” in his comments about several of the league’s players, specifically naming Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick.

In addition, Sharpton wrote that Limbaugh’s “recent statement that the NFL was beginning to look like a fight between the Crips and the Bloods without the weapons, was disturbing.”
Clearly, this is a political issue in Sharpton's mind.

If Al Franken wanted to buy an NFL team, would there be cause to be "disturbed"? Al Gore? Bill Clinton?

Call a spade a spade. They don't want him because he's a Republican.

Funny that no one has called out the race issue here either.
