In a column in the Wall Street Journal today, Rush Limbaugh blasted this week's decision to prevent him from buying into an NFL team, blasting critics Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for their hypocrisy in playing the race card (because of their own anti-semitic comments) and claiming that only his conservatism was the only real issue in the NFL brouhaha. In the column, Limbaugh defines his racial views once and for all:

"Among other things, at least one said he would never play for a team I was involved in given my racial views. My racial views? You mean, my belief in a colorblind society where every individual is treated as a precious human being without regard to his race? Where football players should earn as much as they can and keep as much as they can, regardless of race? Those controversial racial views?"

That part, at least, doesn't sound like him at all. [WSJ]
