General Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama featured thoughtful analyses of the candidate as a "transformational figure" and incisive observations of the McCain campaign's use of smear tactics and distractions.
None of this meant a thing to Rush Limbaugh. From his perspective, it's all quite simple: Obama is black, Powell is black. Therefore, Powell's endorsement was "totally about race."
So how would Limbaugh explain Senator Ted Kennedy's endorsement? Well, perhaps that's more logic than Limbaugh can stand.
Is this really the guy to whom millions listen every day? Limbaugh's statement about the race factor and Powell is nonsensical; what it really reveals is Limbaugh's own racism.
