Pelosi’s husband buys football team, Limbaugh and rightwingers will not be amused

Obviously, this headline from the Huffington Post is destined to cause some on the right to complain about double standards.

The story links to a Washington Post report. Here’s a screen grab of some of the thoughtful objections it has inspired.

This poster spices his faux misplaced outrage with some misogyny and anti latino bigotry, but he’s a ‘patriot’ so it’s okay.

As a commenter on the Huffington Post thread notes, Rush and a whole lot of people on the right are going to be quite irate about this on Monday. But, that’s still a day and a half away. I’m sure we’ll be hearing from them about this well before then.

Their general hatred for Pelosi is of immense proportion. Their collective freak out over this is going to be a spectacle…

Update: In keeping with today’s theme of screen grabs, here’s one from the redstate post and comment thread I linked to in my last post. It’s in reaction to a story claiming that the lyricist from Black Eyed Peas is buying an ownership share of a team.

Aside from the hilarity and stunning lack of irony of the title, it’s also an indication of the reaction to Pelosi owning a team. I mean, we’re talking about a blond white woman in a rap group with black guys.

Despite the ancient fear and loathing that arrangement brings up, the reaction to Pelosi’s husband owning a football team will still probably be many orders of magnitude greater.
