Ezra Klein cites Limbaugh’s comments on the sunken oil drilling platform.
Rush is wondering about the timing of the event and the possibility of sabotage by enviro-extremists. Ezra says “Is there literally nothing this man can say that will convince Republicans to disavow him?”
I will be shocked and appalled if that event was the result of deliberative sabotage, but I would consider the authorities to be remiss in their job if such a possibility is not at least in the back of their minds while investigating the event.
Accordingly, I can not fault Rush for saying what he said.
