Fox "news" Takes Us To Its Leader:
It's really not so much that Fox "news" Sunday had Rush Limbaugh on. No, that's just fine, if redundant. The 24-hour news networks are filthy with radio and print commentators from across the ideological spectrum. They show up, they comment, they're done. It's that alleged real journalist Chris "My Father Sends Me Black Roses" Wallace interviewed the ex-junkie for a half-hour, half the weekly show, in a lubricious ball-washing that must have had Wallace spitting pubes for the rest of the day. For Wallace and his ratings, it was not unlike a calf suckling at the teat of its fat mama cow.
For Limbaugh, it was a chance to disseminate his views, which are worth $80 million a year, to a wider audience in an attempt to indoctrinate them to the side of vituperative crazed conservatives because that's what's best for poor people. Limbaugh was a teabagger before teabagging was cool, and, since he is a teabagger who can articulate a complete sentence, he is their Allah. (Glenn Beck, of course, is their Muhammad.)
Here's a few fun lines from LollapaLimbaugh:
Regarding experience and politicians:
Wallace asked Limbaugh about calling President Obama a "man-child": "That description is simply a way to cut the noise and say he's immature, inexperienced, in over his head." By the way another word for "man-child"? "Boy."
Later in the interview, Wallace asked Limbaugh if Sarah Palin is ready to be president. Limbaugh jowled, "Well, yes, I do. See, I'm a -- one thing I do not do is follow conventional wisdom. And the conventional wisdom on Sarah Palin is she's not smart enough, she needs to bone up on the issues, she's a little unsophisticated...she's the only thing that's provided any kind of spark for the Republican Party. " He does not, however, say she is smart enough, knows the issues, or anything other than that she "smiled" through the attacks on her. You've got to almost admire a man who is that breathtakingly hypocritical.
Regarding George W. Bush and war:
"I have the benefit of knowing George Bush a little bit, and I've seen him cry talking about missions that he's ordered." Pause and think about that. In front of people, when he was president, Bush cried about his decisions. It's like what happens when Limbaugh finally gets a hard-on after the tranny hooker leaves in disgust with a hush money bonus.
By the way, Limbaugh tried to assert that "Bush did this" when Wallace brought up Obama going to Dover Air Base. After Wallace said he didn't think Bush had been to Dover, Limbaugh recalibrated: "No, but he went to see families...And he didn't make a photo-op out of it." Yes, it was all verrry private. Notice, though, that what never gets mentioned is that Obama did meet with families with no media present, just like Bush. The Dover part was something new.
Regarding health care:
Limbaugh goes full bugfuck insane: "This is not about insuring the uninsured. This is not about health care. This is about stealing one-sixth of the U.S. private sector and putting it under the control of federal government. And when they get this health-care bill, if they do, that's the easiest, fastest way for them to be able to regulate every aspect of human behavior, because it'll all have some related cost to health care -- what you drive, what you eat, where you live, what you do. And there'll be penalties for violating regulations. It's going to be the biggest snatch of freedom and liberty that has yet occurred in this country."
Here's what the Rude Pundit doesn't get from this argument: what is the objective in taking over the economy and regulating people's behavior? 'Cause, you know, it sure as shit seems like if you're pro-life and anti-gay marriage you're regulating behavior. And if the government doesn't run something like health care, it's run by a bunch of huge corporations who aren't responsible to, you know, voters. So if that's Obama's ultimate goal, then unless eliminating voting is part of the deal, it's way fucking better than letting, say, AIG run shit. That's a serious question to all the ignorant, teabagging knuckledraggers: Why does Obama want to do it if it's just something that'll get him voted out of office?
Enough of this nonsense from this overpaid, narcissistic cock-head, from Limbaugh, Beck, and all the fearmongering cunts who throw bombs and then say they're just bystanders. They're just shit-scared that Obama will accomplish something. They have to stop all of the agenda before it gets going, not because all of a sudden we're gonna have gulags and re-education camps, but because if legislation passes in a way that actually transforms American health care, even for a small part of the population, then it's like skull-fucking Reagan as far as government's role in people's lives. When Democrats buy the Limbaugh line of thinking, as they did so often during the Clinton administration, they are merely his bitches.
And with this interview and Wallace's refusal to correct Limbaugh when he lumped Fox "news" in with the "all of this conservative media," the big-headed motherfucker can't hide behind any label of "entertainer." No, you're not an entertainer when you're running the show.
(By the way, the one fun revelation? Motherfucker liked his drugs: "I had never experienced the kind of euphoria that I got from a pain pill." Except, you know, for the joys of Dominican boys and news correspondent ball-scrubbings.)
