Another Day, Another A-Rod Story
RUSH: Well, it's another day and another story on Alex Rodriguez. "Major League Baseball sources report that the suspension of Alex Rodriguez, known popularly as A-Rod, is imminent." Is it gonna be for more than the rest of the season? Is it gonna be for all of next season? Is it gonna be a lifetime ban? Is Rodriguez gonna be paid the remaining $60 million to $80 million on his contract?
Do the Yankees want to get rid of him altogether? Will Rodriguez strike a deal to try to limit the terms of this suspension, or will Rodriguez file suit against baseball and take it all to the courts? Nobody knows. Those are all the possibilities, and those are the possibilities every day, and nothing happens. It's just continued speculation.
Scary: CBC Wants Jackson Lee to Succeed Big Sis
RUSH: You want to be scared? Do you know what fear is? You think you know what fear is. I'm gonna tell you what fear is. I'm going to tell you something that's gonna make you live fear. The Congressional Black Caucasians have recommended Sheila Jackson Lee be the new secretary for Homeland Security. I am not joking. I am scared to death.
Just two weeks after Big Sis announced her resignation, the Congressional Black Caucasians "suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot. A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a 'voice of reason' that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported.
'Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security.'"
Well, what more do you need in a secretary of Homeland Security? Somebody that understands border security and maintaining security. Wow. This is a woman who doesn't even know that she's looking at the planet Mars when she's looking at it. Oh, well.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Offends Me
RUSH: Somebody tell me: What is the difference in San Diego mayor Bob Filner and Jerry Sandusky of Penn State University, other than the age group of the victims? I mean, you have similar behavior patterns. I don't know, I just thought I'd throw it out there 'cause it offends me. Filner offends me. Filner ought to be done something with 'cause he offends me. See how easy that is? Except! Except conservatives are not allowed to be offended.
No, that's right.
Because conservatives are the ones doing all the offending.
