Al Sharpton's Secret Love - He can't stop Limbaugh

Fat chance.

"The Rev. Al Sharpton has joined those imploring the National Football League to deny conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh the opportunity to buy the St. Louis Rams franchise. In a letter sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday, Sharpton wrote that he was “disturbed” to hear about Limbaugh’s interest in the Rams and asked for a meeting with Goodell “to discuss the myriad of reasons as to why [Limbaugh] should not be given an opportunity” to purchase the team. Sharpton argued that Limbaugh has been “anti-NFL” in his comments about several of the league’s players, specifically naming Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb. Limbaugh sparked controversy several years ago by contending that the media want McNabb to succeed simply because he is black. In addition, Sharpton wrote that Limbaugh’s “recent statement — that the NFL was beginning to look like a fight between the Crips and the Bloods without the weapons — was disturbing.” Limbaugh confirmed rumors last week that he and St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts are bidding for the Rams. “Dave and I are part of a bid to buy the Rams, and we are continuing the process. But I can say no more because of a confidentiality clause in our agreement with Goldman Sachs,” Limbaugh said in a statement. “We cannot and will not talk about our partners. But if we prevail, we will be the operators of the team.” Sharpton joined NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith in urging the league to prevent Limbaugh from owning a team. In an e-mail to the union’s executive committee Saturday, Smith said that he and Goodell had spoken about Limbaugh’s potential bid and learned that “this ownership consideration is in the early stages.” “But sport in America is at its best when it unifies, gives all of us reason to cheer, and when it transcends,” Smith wrote. “Our sport does exactly that when it overcomes division and rejects discrimination and hatred.”
Too bad it won't stop the process. Local Sports Talk Radio in Miami is reporting that the story, Limbaugh's share, is a done deal. Al Davis showed the world that attitude or quirkiness has nothing to do with the qualification to own an NFL team. Additionally the NFL isn't going to risk losing fans who favor Limbaugh. Sharpton's impact in that regard is negligible. Personally I would hope that Limbaugh sues Sharpton ass off for defamation. In any case, Limbaugh wins.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
