some_wild-eyed_8-foot_tall_maniac: Dr.Fey:
Democrats, after all, believe they were descended from apes, so why not.

LOL

I'm not sure which makes you more ignorant... the brainless implication that only Democrats subscribe to the T.O.E., or your stupid mis-characterization of the Theory itself.

Please, for the love of the monkeys, go DIAF.


Perhaps you should read his posts more carefully.
Why do you jump to conclusions based on a one-sided reading?
Not everything is as it seems in the beginning.
Even Rush Limbaugh sometimes talks out of both sides of his mouth.
Dr. Fey makes me chuckle.

You do know the Dominican Republic is a sex tourism hot spot, don't you?

If he was looking to just get laid, Las Vegas is cheaper, closer and more heterosexually oriented.



1) He probably had had a g/f or date with him on that trip.
2) He lives in Florida, and the DR is closer than Las Vegas.
3) The DR is also known for it's cigars and new gold courses, which happen to be two of his hobbies.

BTW, I'm actually interested in taking a trip down there some day. Does that make me a pederast?

whidbey: 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.


No sir, YOU are part of the problem. People like Limbaugh are always theorizing that liberals are trying to silence them, and you just validated that theory.

Or don't you see a problem with silencing viewpoints with which you disagree?

They're attached to him like the faithful are attached to a religion.

This is a sad excuse for an attack. Vote for the indie candidate guys, he writes his own songs!

nopokerface: Yep. Both are being compared to a lesser evolved creature implying they are genetically inferior to the average human, and certainly unfit to hold public office. Oh, you asked if I saw the difference, didn't you? I guess I just see mostly similarity.

Of course the big difference is that black people were traditionally compared to apes and monkeys as a racist attack against them. But you knew that right?

flashfry: I have laughed with PLENTY of people I disagreed with.

THIS

Man, if Obama gets elected we are freaking doomed. The alleged racism and bigotry in this country is going to explode. You can't say anything even remotely negative about Obama or else you are a racist or a bigot. If someone, even a 12 year old kid makes fun of how he looks, everyone within earshot is a racist.

Its a very typically republican tactic to pretend that words have no meaning or context.

HAHAHA...oh the irony. This is being taken OUT OF F'ING context. A little girl said it. Probably not being racist. Might not even know the history of blacks and the monkey moniker, yet boom...explosion. You are just as transparent as you like to say others are.

Again, voting for Obama. Not an apologist.

So... nobody can smile or laugh at anything non-PC? Or are we not allowed to laugh at kids inadvertently doing such things - or just can't retell something non-PC a kid does?
How does Comedy Central survive? .. or half the movies out there?

Admittedly a monkey comparison is a bad idea (not that he even made one)... but it does seem that it's harder than usual to make fun of him in 'okay' ways. Could we get a list of approved insults and animal comparisons? He's a politician... we have to. GW has gotten us used to even more politician bashing than we already relied on. I'd have expected Hilary to come with just as many PC-tiptoe moments... but she really doesn't. Nobody minds those things - how many articles have we had about her cleavage and view or lack of view of it? Actually... she probably just comes with a longer than normal list of possible jokes.

Every time Rush makes a racist, anti-American comment, I say to myself, "Self, it's a good thing that moron is out there, cause can you even IMAGINE what debating these republican morons would be like if they came up with this shiat themselves?"

Thanks for that direct and concise refutation of my claims. You are so hard to argue with, what with all the facts being on your side and all.

Cwolf20: try listening to some of the "but but but, monkeys have a similar skeleton structure as well
As number of fingers to humans" arguments that are brought up in defense of the theory of evolution

Now, now... even evolutionists are smart enough not to make claims like that.

Only a fool would try to prove evolutionism that way.
Five fingers is not something unique to any one species, genus, family, order, or even class.

Pentadactyly is a symplesiomorphic trait.
Evolutionism is best "proven" by denying the existence of the Creator.
Atheists use evolution as tin foil to keep God out of their brainwaves.
Science backs up the idea of intelligent design, but who cares about science.

To all the right-wing racist apologists:

If it's no big deal and Rush isn't a racist, WHY THE APOLOGY!?

I want to continue watching you squirm. I'm glad this pisses you guys off. You brought it on yourself. America couldn't stay white proud and stupid forever you assholes.

The_Original_Roxtar: wait... "monkey" is a racial term? does "well i'll be a monkey's uncle" imply that i married a black woman who has a niece or nephew?

It implies that your sister had relations with a person with more melanin than most and you didn't even notice who she was running around with.


That said, Rush says some crazy and thoughtless stuff, but in this instance he's being villified for something he didn't do. This time.

All I want to know is; How the fark is Hillary getting any traction at all over the NAFTA subject? After all, it was enacted by her former Administration. If it needs to be renegotiated, as she says, why couldn't they get it right the first time?

Face it, they sold us out, and now they're looking to distract us from that fact so they can do it again.

DROxINxTHExWIND:
No, you're giving them too much credit. You might have a point if they were off message, but their message of hate, fear, and intolerance is very consistent. They play to the hatemongers and the bigots. Always have. It's just, now that the unthinkable rolls towards inevitability, (a black president) the bigotry has become more overt to reflect the anxiousness of his base.


You honestly think this is "overt bigotry"? Some windbag calling Barack a cartoon character? MLK, Medgar Evers, your parents and grandparents, etc. would like a word with your pansy ass. It's not like they're breaking out the white hoods or fire hoses.

moothemagiccow: Hey, listen, my 12-year-old daughter, her statement last week was who cares what the guy's middle name is, he looks like Curious George.

This.. is your attack? THIS IS YOUR ATTACK?
He looks funny! He has a funny name! He's black! Vote for someone else!

This is the worst you can farking do? You may as well stop denying your guilty love and vote for the guy.


HUMOR. HU-MOR. It's silly. Ha-ha. Laugh. Laugh. Your life will be better for it.

One this I've noticed by being with Right and Left wingers, it's that Righties are seldom over-serious, and often make derisive jokes about being a republican, and deride Lefties humorsly. Lefties act like every breath they take is saving the farking planet, by virtue of opposing the evil pedofile racist scum that are those hellish bastard damn republicans.

Guess which I'd rather hang around...

srhp29: Unright

Read my last post and try to understand the difference between saying one person looks similar to a monkey and gereralizing that all people of a race are nothing but monkeys. That will be a good differentiation for you and a lot of people to make.


Go ahead and find a bunch of pictures of Obama and comparable simian faces and post it. If you can do such a thing without knowing in your heart that it's wrong. Then, uh, you sure showed me and proved your loyalty to Rush, I guess.

Ok, libtards, listen up: Rush didn't say ANYTHING. A caller did. And Rush had the class to apologize for the caller's comments.

Which, from the tone of the comments in this thread, is a lot more than most raving liberals would/could ever do.
