yeah, that was yesterday's show.  Rush was...well, rambling, incoherent, very emotional the whole time.

In other words, just another Wednesday for him.

Rush Limbaugh should set himself on fire.

That's better than what he usually does to them.  The Dominican ones anyway.

I've lost several good friends to Rush.

Normal, intelligent, likable people, who have inexplicably become bitter, narrow-minded, spewers of his rhetoric.

I'm not sure how this happens.  There must be some sort of genetic circuit breaker in white males over the age of 50 that trips, and turns off the rational portions of their brains.

I believe it's due to Low T.

We're probably going to need a ladder truck on standby for that one.

He's more comfortable around children in a more controlled setting. Like, say, the brothels of Santo Domingo where the only feedback he gets is "Muy Grande, Senor 'Smith'"

I know he sits back and laughs, knowing he has tens of millions of dollars in the bank, but occasionally, I wonder if he ever has a flash of conscience.  Does he ever say to himself "God, I am such a festering asshole?"

An article from The Onion, circa 2010, was pretty spot-on about that. NSFW language

I'm glad you agree, that the NRA using Obama's children a political props opened them up for criticism.

I'm also glad to see you are out of solitary.

I actually don't have a problem with him mocking the use of children as a backdrop, and I'll tell you why.

Back when I was in first grade at a Catholic school, my teacher had the whole class write letters saying that throwing babies away in the trash was wrong. I remember willingly writing that letter: Who could be against throwing babies away? In the mindset of a child, in isolation to all else, it seemed very wrong to do that sort of thing.

You know what year I was in first grade? 1973. The year Roe v. Wade was decided.

I was used as a pawn in the abortion debate. Ever since I figured that out (later on, as a young adult), I've been pissed off about it. I had neither the information, nor the reasoning skills to engage in a debate on the subject.

I was *USED*.

I suspect that at least some of these children will feel the same way in the future. They don't have all the information. They *CAN'T* have all the information, some of it is just that far above their level. They don't have the historical context, they don't have the legal context. Most weren't even in school when Heller was decided, not that Supreme Court decisions are part of the kindergarten or first grade curriculum*.


*Unless, of course, you attended St. Michael's the Archangel in 1973.

Let me see if I have this straight:

A politician using dead children to advance a point is OK.
A politician using live children to advance a point is OK.
A lobbying organization using that politician's children to advance a point is *NOT* OK?

Really?
 
2013-01-17 03:06:05 PM  
I think he could have handled that better.

Then again, the dude is mega-rich, so I guess it sells.

He handled it perfectly.  Predictably.  That's why he's rich.

It's also why he's a very bad person, not that he gives a shiat.

Limbaugh must be under a lot of pressure - he's losing his audience, his 'shock jock' tactics aren't bring back as big a return as they used too...people are becoming less shocked/outraged and more '*sigh* yeah, limbaugh is a dick hole, I think I'll have salad for lunch'.  Rush isn't stupid - he knows that once his audience is gone, his empire will rapidly implode and be forgotten.

Killing children, not so much.

It's only fair - after all, children mock Rush Limbaugh, too.

If Obama is serious about protecting children against gun violence, why don't he stop endorsing gangster rappers like Jay-Z, who promote illegal gun culture and violence?  What about all the children who have been killed by gang shootings?
 
2013-01-17 03:38:18 PM  
If I were Rush I would make an effort to bring up young boys as little as possible.

It's not surprising Limbaugh would not empathize with children given his fondness for raping little boys in the Dominican Republic.
 
2013-01-17 03:40:25 PM  
there has been a couple interesting suggestions made on Daily Kos about limbaugh being the main reason for the disintegration of talk radio.  granted, that format is imploding due to a culmination of things (demographic shifts, changes in technology being two big reasons) but Limbaugh is sort of the final nail in the coffin, so to speak.  his antics caused a flash flood of advertisers leaving talk radio and a big chunk of those advertising dollars haven't come back.  it affected the entire industry, not just Rush Limbaugh's show.

That can't be right, because we know that he likes children. Really likes them.

Dominicans don't have personhood.
