BillMaher: Rushing to Judgement:

Love him or hate him, Bill Maher makes sense more often than not!

"Rushing to Judgement
Rush Limbaugh had to resign from his ESPN NFL broadcasting job for suggesting his fellow sportscasters overrated Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb because they wanted to see a black quarterback succeed. Limbaugh also didn't help himself when he outted McNabb's wife as a CIA operative.
But, this time, Rush Limbaugh isn't the big, fat idiot. He wasn't implying that we'd all be better off if society were segregated, as Trent Lott did, or that blacks don't possess the 'necesseties' to be baseball managers, as Al Campanis did. He was simply suggesting that some sportscasters, recognizing a historic glass ceiling for African-American quarterbacks, may have been practicing a kind of 'accolades affirmative action.'
But, as we all know, in this country, when anybody makes anyone uncomfortable ever, they must lose their job. Sports Center is next. "
