The free market works!

Anyone who knows me has a pretty good idea where to find me on any given Sunday in the Fall as my love of the NFL and my beloved Washington Redskins is no secret. So it's no surprize I might have a thought or two on Rush Limbaugh being dropped from an investment bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams. After pursuing Limbaugh as a minority investor, the group determined Limbaugh's documented history of racially charged commentary may not be in the best interest of their bid.

For me, this all boils down to the market. The same market conservatives constantly preach about as the foundation of our freedom and liberty is the same market that dropped Limbaugh PRIOR to the bid's submission to the NFL. In other words, the NFL didn't reject Rush, his own investment partners did.

Isn't this what capitalism is all about? Letting market forces dictate who wins and who loses.
