How Can I Make it About Me?

Look everybody, Rush Limbaugh mentioned me!

This is the gist of a column by HuffPost-AOL Editorial Director Howard Fineman this week, as he recounted Limbaugh calling him “nuts” and in the tank for President Obama on account of his historical rantings about the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.

We’re not sure what’s worse: the boring nature of the rantings themselves, or the rantings about Limbaugh’s rantings about Fineman, who makes a point of insisting that he’s not deserving of Limbaugh’s ire. After all, he’s a Steeler’s fan and once wrote a story about radio loudmouths that included you know fatso bigmouth who.

An excerpt:

“I am not part of any crop of Democrats or political types of any kind. I’m pretty well known for keeping an even keel ideologically and for steering clear of partisanship. I’m old-fashioned, even out of date, in this deconstructionist era, in which everyone is assumed to have an ulterior — political — motive. I don’t. I really don’t.”
