Excessive Douchebaggery, and cause for concern.

First, via TPM, Rush Limbaugh is either an idiot or an asshole.
"In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, 'Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on," Limbaugh said.
As opposed to the old days, when black people were hanged with the white kids cheering "Yay, right on, right on, right on?" Do you think Limbaugh really believes that Obama caused this? Is he really convinced that Obama, just by being black and president, caused this otherwise articulate and well behaved young colored gentlemen to beat up a white kid? Or is it a case of teenage boys being their typical jackassy selves plus a complicated and troubled history of race in this country?
The Belleville News-Democrat is reporting that police are no longer thinking it's racially motivated, just bullying.
The video also shows students standing to cheer for the fight and using a cell phone to take photos of the bleeding victim.
Which should come as no surprise to anyone who was in high school recently.

Will we get the apology from Rush and the Right that they asked for after the Duke Lacrosse incident?

Second, also via TPM, man brings two guns to Obama event, denies being a copycat. Apparently just got out of jail for assault. I will pay for a round of drinks if anyone can find me one news story (not blog post, FOX news ok) about anyone bringing a gun to a George W. Bush event. I will post it here, and then buy you a round of drinks at the bar of your choosing..

I am pretty sure I will be drinking alone.
