The following comment by conservative radio host, Rush Limbaugh, was cited by TIME in their weekly list of quotes of the week:
"If this Virginia Tech shooter had an ideology, what do you think it was? This guy had to be a liberal."
"Lawsy," says Virgil, who is never lacking in dromedary phrases. "I think they got the wrong man when they bagged Imus, don't you?"
Imus, who was recently thrown off the air because of his racist slur against a black, female basketball team, after referring to the players as "nappy-headed hos," was an easy target, downed in a single shot. I agree with Virgil. Rush Limbaugh is far more radioactive. I think his time has come. Down with the power of bigoted Republicans to paint reality any color. I hate that their commitment to truth is always up for grabs.
