This week's sign that End Times are nigh*. Word is out that Rush Limbaugh might want to buy the St. Louis Rams, which has been as polarizing as everything else about him. And:
Keith Olbermann of MSNBC defended Limbaugh's right to buy the Rams. And Olbermann made the critics of Limbaugh on this point entry No. 3 on Olbermann's nightly "Worst Persons in the World" segment of Countdown.
"There're now gonna be character tests for sports owners?" Olbermann said. "There'll only be three of them left. Unless they beat the Vikings Sunday as of next Thursday it will have been a full year since the Rams won a game. My God, if Limbaugh wants to buy them far be it for me to tell him he's flushing his money down a rat hole."
What's next, Barack Obama and Glenn Beck doing a PSA together for Veterans Day? Oh, wait, I know. How about a duet by Barbra Streisand and Ted Nugent?
*"Nigh" means exactly the same thing as "near," but it sounds a lot classier, which makes it the perfect snob word.
