On the flip side, there are also some Georges who *are* monkeys but have no curiosity--or, in fact, intellect--at all.

I'm sure he knows at least one.

How could he claim to never have heard of Curious George. This guy is Unamerican!

Not really news...anybody who has not been living in a cave should know at this point that he is not much more than a fat, oxycontin-popping racist.

Former (thankfully) Senator George "Macaca" Allen approves.

-1 extremely inaccurate headline
-1 absolutely nothing to this `story'
-9 nobody cares about Rush Limbaugh

Limbaugh needs to be driven from the air.

And at this point, if you listen to him "even for fun," you're part of the problem.

ODDwhun: I'm sure he knows at least one.

Actually, that's Incurious George.

Remember people: comparing politicians to monkeys, like so many other things, is only wrong when Republicans do it.
 
2008-03-04 12:53:05 PM
You should hear the back tracking the fatasshat tried to do. It was fun listening to him stumble over himself trying to explain he didn't know who Curious George was.

Imus off the air for nappy headed hoes?

Rush off the air for black man looks like a monkey!

Is Rush a republican? I didn't know. Hell, he said to vote for Hilliary.

Are these guys TRYING to get Obama elected?

I think so, actually. Rush and Hannity and Coulter work with a boogieman. Clinton was great for business. When Bush took office, things looked down, but 9/11 happened, and no one took more advantage of that than Bush and the Right Wing. They had new boogiemen - terrorists and the Dixie Chicks.

Problem is, Republican scandals and Bush's incompetence are harder to defend with any credibility, thus their ranting is more easily ignored. By making awful statements about Obama, they turn the electorate TOWARD Obama, and when he wins the White House, they've got another boogieman to use for selling books.

Rove has actually cautioned The Right against ugly attacks against Obama because he's smart enough to know it will backfire. Rush and Company want it to backfire and don't care that Rove's legacy might be a complete Democrat takeover of Washington.

This will help Obama. That will sell Rush's next book.

This is as misleading as your headlines.

The big difference, for those who may have missed it, is that calling a Black person a monkey has racial undertones not present when calling a white person a monkey.

Unless Rush wants to take porch monkey back, he's going to get a bit of a backlash over this. But not much.

/There's a reason he 'apologized' for this
//Heck, the last time I remember him apologizing is for calling Chelsea a dog

From the article: presumably with that bigot flu that's going around
Limbaugh is an arsemunch, but if saying GWB looks like a monkey is okay to do,
I don't think people should walk on eggshells because Obama's black.
Presidents should be fair game regardless of their race.
Stop protecting people because you actually think that they are different.

That would actually be racist and bigoted if you did.
How many comparisons were made between Bush and a chimp?
Everyone should be abused equally, regardless of their race or ethnicity.

Barack should also be called Chimpy McStrokedByTheMedia (or something)
I mean, is it wrong to insult people and compare them to animals?
Racism is wrong - you should make fun of Barack like any other primate.
Democrats, after all, believe they were descended from apes, so why not.

Mtman900: The big difference, for those who may have missed it,

Know who also thinks people of different races should be treated differently?
Equal treatment is something people of all races have died to defend.
You, however, are advocating racism.

Many people, believe it or not, don't see the same "undertones" you do.
Of course, that's because some folks see all people as people.
Unless you believe in "Animal Farm" system, with some more equal than others,
Stop with your wrong-headed thinking.
Equality needs to start with your own mind to be realized.

Isn't this the same guy who said that people only liked Donovan McNabb because he's black? Or is this the guy who called Halle Berry "Halfrican"?
 
2008-03-04 01:20:44 PM
"I never heard of Curious George until that caller. I don't care how old Curious George is. I never heard of Curious George. I had no idea what she was talking about. Now they tell me Curious George is a monkey."

Riiiight. Like he doesn't use his stuffed Curious George to lure little Dominican boys into bed.

They should have canned him after "Halfrican."
 
2008-03-04 01:22:13 PM
Did Rush ask if Obama was going to replace elevator cars with vines when he's elected?
 
2008-03-04 01:25:36 PM
Dr.Fey: Know who also thinks people of different races should be treated differently?

*facepalm*

Everybody knows, especially a guy in the spotlight like rush, about the racist history of the epithet "monkey". If he uses it with relation to Obama, it can be read as a racist statement.

if someone calls Bush a monkey I can see them as a simple idiot just doing it for laughs. If someone calls Obama a monkey, I can see them as racist idiots.

A black woman I used to work with came back from maternity leave and brought the baby into the office for everyone to see. Absolutely adorable child! And without even thinking I said, "Oh what a cuuuute little monkey!" I was mortified. Luckily Monica was very cool and understood I didn't mean it. I say that mechanically all the time.

I find most black babies look like a gorilla. Of course I don't that that when the blacks are around.

FTFA: Limbaugh swore that he had never heard of the Curious George character ("I never heard of Curious George until that caller. I don't care how old Curious George is. I never heard of Curious George. I had no idea what she was talking about. Now they tell me Curious George is a monkey. ") and blamed his laughter at a joke involving someone he claims to have never heard of on the fact that he was "sick,"

A: Who the hell has never heard of Curious George?
B: "Sick" like "I need prescription painkillers" or "sick" like "Nothing's better than banging a Haitian boy?"

I believe in the evolution of man, and I'm no democrat.

I believe it because there is evidence for it.

You'll have to excuse poor Rushie. Must have been the Percoset talking.

I wonder what fuels that stereotype that all republicans are racist douchebags?

Wanna bet that after Magic-Negro, his advertisers threatened to pull the plug?

Curious George is a monkey. And he can do things you can't do - like save the Constitution.

It was a caller who said it, Rush kinda giggled, I think more to be polite to the caller. Rush never compared him to a monkey. I knew when I heard the caller say that yesterday it was going to be in the news that Rush had called Obama a monkey. He shouldn't have addressed it at all and just let it go by without further commentary.
 
2008-03-04 01:58:10 PM
Hey look, it's the Rush Limbaugh "I DIDN'T SAY THAT" two-step.
