Rush Limbaugh plays a shell game with blame

Since we are in the business of some talk radio, why not give a nod to some inflammatory talk radio?

I have long been flummoxed by Rush Limbaugh for many reasons. I once heard him say that Andy Revkin of the blog DotEarth should go kill himself if "he really thinks that humanity is destroying the panet, humanity is destroying the climate, that human beings in their natural existence are going to cause the extinction of life on Earth." That raised my and others' hackles.

Now he's taken to blaming the Sierra Club and "the greenies" for the Gulf oil disaster. Apparently, environmentalists are responsible for driving oil exploration and drilling farther offshore. Listen.

Strange that. I always thought it was the American industrial economy's appetite for oil that drove this and the huge profits that oil giants have made from it.

We report. You decide.
