From THE UPSHOT at YAHOO NEWS:
The Rev. Al Sharpton wants Rush Limbaugh to apologize for calling the late George Steinbrenner a “cracker” who “made a lot of African-American millionaires.” Don’t count on it.
Limbaugh, in an email to Yahoo! News (reprinted in full below), says: “The only thing I can remember the media and the left ever saying about Steinbrenner is that he was an evil, temperamental dictator who made illegal campaign contributions to Richard Nixon and consorted with hoodlums.”
And now, he argues, the media and left-wing commentators are going after him for talking about Steinbrenner.
