This is kind of off topic, but I think working for Weekly World News as a writer or photographer/photoshopper would be an extremely fun job. I would love to have that on my resume.

I consider myself consevative. But I am not a fan of that ego inflated loud mouth.

you can't get anything right. I'm not now, nor have I ever been a Republican. In fact, in the last state election, I voted for more Democrats than Republicans.

But you believe Rush is God? Or were you being sarcastic?
 
2003-04-08 09:32:40 PM  
WHat an idiot for believing everything he hears on the radio. Must be stupider than you average liberal.

As for myself, I only believe supermarket tabloids.

In general, the nation's liberals represent a more evolved thinking which hasn't taken seat in the US yet. The thing that bothers me is wondering if the progressive liberal hopes for america will ever be accessible to the slightly-dim typical american. Our most popular TV shows aren't Ken Burns'-type documentaries, they are Survivor and American Idol. And the voice of the common man isn't a reasoned, calm consideration of all sides of the issue, the voice of america only speaks in cadence to pounding fists on the desk.

I really hope one day my nation grows up.

At least they weren't sex offenders. They all listen to NPR.

I'm pretty conservative, and even I realize that Rush Limbaugh is a complete fool. His listeners aren't called "ditto heads" for nothing. Yeah, as if this behavior surprised anybody.

Quick1: But you believe Rush is God? Or were you being sarcastic?

Rush's show is great. He is hilarious, entertaining and probably as informative as your typical news broadcast (though not as informative as Fark).

If you doubt for a second Rush's effectiveness, all you have to do is watch the liberals wring their hands over him and knock their heads against the wall trying to figure out how to get a "Liberal Rush" on the air. They keep trying to get existing political figures to do the job, which is stupid. Rush was not a politician and he came out of nowhere. If liberals want to find someone to challenge Rush, they've got to quit looking and just let it happen.

In the meantime, he has a legendary radio show that will be the subject of discussion for decades.

2003-04-08 09:40:49 PM  
The problem as I see it is that Rush knows that people believe everything he says, no matter how untrue. He uses that power to misinform people and fill their heads with utter garbage that they then spew back to everyone else, no matter how stupid it is.
Rush uses this power, deliberatly misinforming the public, to advance a conservative agenda.

I call that evil.
 
2003-04-08 09:41:01 PM  
GEAH, better get used to it. I've found that on this board if you're anything to the right of a socialist, then you're a fascist, Bible-thumping, abortion-clinic-bombing, ultra-right-wing lunatic. Funny how stereotyping is okay in that case.

Sinatra -- I listen to talk radio at work all the time. You see, those of us who are responsible and hardworking often have nicer jobs which include these things called "offices". Those are semi-private rooms where you can do things like listen to talk radio during the day.

2003-04-08 09:42:39 PM  
I used to listen to Rush... a long time ago. [Dinkins was in office still].
I thought he was funny.

Then the 'Dittoes' crap started, and his ego got as big as his gut. It is scary how much people take whatever he says to be accurate.

GEAH, use some common sense. Rush says things and calls them true, doesn't make it so. Ever read Franken's book?
 
2003-04-08 09:42:52 PM  
" When I run across these people, I always challenge them to listen to his show for a week."

I've tried, but can never last more than five minutes. I can only take "2 + 2 = 5" so many times. Honestly, he never makes any sense!

On the other hand, when he isn't talking politics, which is about one percent of the time, he's pretty entertaining.

Why is it when Rush actually lets a liberal call in and have a say, the caller is invariably an idiot? I have never heard a liberal that knew what he was talking about on the show.




That's because all Liberals are idiots. There aren't any of them that know what they're talking about.
 
2003-04-08 09:45:12 PM  
TheSammo

The problem is that Liberals and Conservatives [capitalized to represent the annointed ones, not just those who vote that way] over simplify EVERYTHING and never ever consider the tertiary/quaternary etc... consequences of any action.

Politicians be damned.

Rush is pursuasive. He takes a lot of carefully misaligned facts, throws in one covertly hidden asinine assumption, and then connects the dots for his listeners, who all think he's the most farking brilliant thing to hit radio since H. V. Kaltenborn.

Its great radio if you're not smart enough to think for yourself. Hence why he has millions of listeners.

And yes, I have listened to his show. Or, more accurately, I've had it foisted upon me by dittohead cubicle neighbors. To be honest, country music is worse. But only marginally.

BTW, props to the admins. This thread was turned down on Totalfark when I commented on it. Glad someone rescued it from the scupper.

2003-04-08 09:46:33 PM  
and i would also like to say i made a few typios in my preivous post (i broek my finfer this weekend lozl). sorry 4 typose.

hard 2 shift and backspwace

and i was listening 2 rush one day and it was call-in time from teh listeners. it was hilarious, this old woman calls in and says something to the extent of "HELLO I AM MARGE FROM MISSISSIPPI AND I THINK YOU'RE A FAT B@ST@RD WHO NEEEDS PEOPLE TO CHANGE YOUR DIAPERS 4 YOU! YOU PEE YOUR PANTS!" and she insulted him for about 15-20 seconds before rush had another person call in and say something to the extent of him being "DEAD SEXY".

Ok, ENOUGH HUMOR 4 TODYA!
 
2003-04-08 09:46:45 PM  
I forgot. Anne Coulter and Bill Wazzizzname and Mike Savage and most of the other conservative commentators use the same power of misinformation.

This has always been what I see as the primary difference between conservatives and liberals. Conservatives have no compunction about lying to get their way. Although recently liberals have seen the effectiveness of this tactic and adopted it for themselves. only they're not very good at it yet.

the geocities doesn't allow remote image linking. However, they are twits and only look to see if you are linking to a jpg or gif. If you name your image '.txt' [or other extension, I believe], you can get around their inefficient filter code.

now we know how Rush manages to think for them.
 
2003-04-08 09:51:22 PM  
Yeah...Savage is a loser OK. That must be why his book is selling off the scale. Probably the same reason NBC just hired him for his own TV show and paid him a jillion dollars a year. What a dog.

Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot (that lost some weight).

Mexicangeek
I'm a dittohead. RUSH IS RIGHT! Funny how MOST of the people that make fun of Rush never bother to listen to his show. When I run across these people, I always challenge them to listen to his show for a week. The result: alot of them continue to listen after the first week.

I was forced to listen to him for weeks on end while riding with a co-worker to a job site. He is an even bigger asshole than I thought possible. Total asshole. Big fat idiot asshole. Anyone that has a brain and continued to listen to him after a week is an idiot that probably can't figure out how to turn the channel.

Just ask him. He'll tell you.

Thank you Sammo. Most likely, and unfortunately, the intellectuals will never get a hold on (and make up any significant) American society; aside from making up a rather small percentage of democrats [and it seems a far smaller percentage of republicans I may add] it seems our country feeds on stupidity, bigotry, and greed. We can hope that someday our predidency will be filled with the spot of a politician that will try to convey the importance of thinking in this world.

Yet, for all his father's patriotism, and deep-rooted fear of Communism, Rusty (Rush) did not enlist to preserve those ideals. The official explanation, David Limbaugh said, is that Rush had a student deferment and, like his father, had a pilonidal cyst on his ass which qualified him for a medical deferment.3

Limbaugh's mother said in 1993 that she did not know if her son had a physical or not, but she added that he did have a pilonidal cyst like his father.2

I'm not near my copy of "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot" but it's all there. And that book is about 10 years old. Dude, don't try to tell me that everything that falls from Rush's mouth is utter truth.

Try a google search for " 'rush limbaugh' lies" Plenty of material there.

I am highly educated, well-read, and pretty successful at this level in my career. I loathe those same shows you mention, and tend to watch not much other than The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, and "Baseball Tonight." But you, and some of the others, who think the lack of America's leaning to the left as being due to a lack of intellect is precisely the type of psuedo-intellectual arrogance that perpetuates the stereotypes many people have about liberals. Get over yourselves. I know a lot of very, very intelligent people whose views cover a wide swath of the political spectrum. (I don't know any mental giants in the Reform Party. Sorry.) You are not the annointed, enlightened ones. Maybe if you stop being so condescending, people would listen.

Oh, and Rush is funny. He's entertainment. Nothing more. That's why there are no "liberal" Rush Limbaughs out there - no sense of humor. You need to get over that, too.
 
2003-04-08 09:57:32 PM  
I like Rush, and Mike Savage and Hannity. They make me smile :) . That's what entertainers do.

Kerry was elected - Rush is a paid performer. I see a difference there.

And I completely agree with whoever it was in this thread said "there is not enough tertiary thinking out there". The tertiary ingredient between left and right wing politics is yourself.
