It's Turn Up Your Speakers Time!!
With Rush Limbaugh in the news again, and again, and again, I think it is my duty to re-post this presentation which defines his character in succinct yet wholly accurate terms. In fact, it is probably way too complimentary!
As my bloggin' friend Grandpa Eddie quoted in this post about Limbaugh: "Limbaugh's the "role model" for the party of family values? A thrice-divorced, drug-abusing, Parkinson's-mocking, cigar-sucking egomaniac, a poster boy for meanness, overindulgence and excess? So for now the future of the party is an admitted Oxycontin addict who plea-bargained his way out of a drug conviction, who mocks children and Parkinson's sufferers, who exhibits strange sexual fears about our first black president (why is he worried about "grabbing his ankles?"), who was famously detained on a Dominican Republic vacation for carrying Viagra without a prescription?"
It was only a matter of months ago that Limbaugh declared that if John McCain became the Republican nominee for president it would signal the death of the Republican party. He also said that he was tired of "carrying the water" for the Repukes by defending Bush, etc. He tried to subvert the American electoral process by encouraging Repukes to deliberately foul up the Democratic National Convention. He has all but admitted that his ilk cannot win a fair election and must cheat in order to remain viable.
I have heard him off and on for over 20 years, and he has lied his ass off the whole time.
If Rush Limbaugh is the symbol of the Republican party, we have either nothing, or everything, to worry about.
