If there's anything I've learned from listening to right-wing radio, it's that (1) it's OK to be unfair to people as long as it makes economic sense, and (2) it's OK to dredge up old quotes in order to defame someone and keep them out of positions of power.
The blogger credits the line, "And the game done chose me to bring pain to n*ggas and p*ssy holes, they one in the same," to her by noting she co-wrote the song "I'm Real." Never mind that the quote is wrong -- there should be an extra p*ssy in their somewhere. Never mind it's from the remix, and the verse in question is performed and written by Ja Rule -- a real-life African-American. Never mind that the much more popular, cleaned-up version of the song uses the lyrics, "To bring pain, pretty women, and fake thugs, one in the same." Never mind that Jennifer Lopez isn't actually an NFL owner -- her husband is -- this clearly means she is a racist and Rush deserves a football team.
