Judging the Judge

THE NOSE ON YOUR FACE
P&J wonder why there was even the hint of a debate about Rush Limbaugh being told “your money is no good here” by the National Football League or by having Roman Polanski picked up in Switzerland for fleeing US prosecution for the rape and sodomizing of a 13-year-old girl decades ago.

Limbaugh’s coded comments on race, whether he believes them or not, should disqualify him from becoming part-owner of a team in a league that is now very heavily based on the skills of black athletes. Not that there weren’t and aren’t NFL owners who have the same views, but that is an unfortunate mistake that shouldn’t be made in this day and age.

And all you need to do is read the transcript (available online at places like The Smoking Gun) of the girl involved in Polanski’s attack, and then look at a 13-year-old girl, and it is case closed — you’re comin’ home, Roman.

When we live in a culture where Doonesbury — an effing cartoon! — provides the moral high ground on issues such as Polanski and the US wars and Jon Stewart’s Daily Show is what young people consider their best source of news, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised.
