Upon learning of Colin Powell’s endorsement of Obama, Rush Limbaugh said in an e-mail to Politico reporter Jonathan Martin Sunday, “Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race,” Limbaugh wrote in the e-mail. “OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I’ll let you know what I come up with.”
Limbaugh also questioned why the media hadn’t brought Powell’s lack of support for inexperienced white liberals to the discussion.
“Just so you know, I haven’t come up with any,” Limbaugh said. “I worked diligently on this on the airplane on the trip home from Green Bay yesterday. I can’t find any of these inexperienced white liberals that Powell has endorsed.”
Powell said his endorsement wasn’t based on race, In announcing his endorsement of Obama, but he added “I can’t deny that it will be a historic event for an African-American to become president.”
I did some research, too, and couldn’t find one white, inexperienced, hyper-liberal that Powell ever supported.
