You'd think guys with greater mass like that would have thicker skin.

There's that tough GOP bootstrappiness in action. So tough they can't stand a tiny bit of criticism...

He's like a deranged little yapping poodle.

It's amazing how many people don't get that that was as much an over-the-top send-up of Springsteen's persona as it was a dig at Christie.
 
2014-01-17 11:55:22 AM
The ironic thing is that I would know nothing about anything Rush Limbaugh says if it wasn't for liberal sites pointing it out.

Here's some advice to those sites:  Don't feed the trolls

He is simply the best at trolling.  Anne Coulter is his protegee but she doen't have quite the magic of the old man.

If he didn't have so much clout with the GOP and conservatives it would be funny.

Well it was cruel. The Boss has actually talked to Christie in person and knows that Christie is a huge fan.

Where as Chelsea didn't know who Rush was and really couldn't care less.


And lets be honest, she was kinda a dog but 13 is an awkward age. Now she grew up hot.
 
2014-01-17 12:09:19 PM
wait- i thought the problem was that christie was just too much of a "man's man" and that he was too "muscular."

Oh boo hoo.

Seriously? It's cruel to make fun of the man's scandals just because he's a huge fan?

It seems like it's kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy.  He pisses liberals off (who obviously listen to his show), GOP leadership takes notice and thinks anything that pisses off liberals is a good thing, Rush gets more power within the GOP.

If liberals would ignore him, his base and power would likely be significantly smaller.

I'm sorry, but I can't hear you over the sound of how evil Bruce Springsteen is.

Ann Coulter does share the same Adam's apple as Limbaugh, though.

I promise to do so.  No clicking on stories about him, no listening, no nothin'.

Anyone else?

Never judge a book by its cover. Or in this case a planet by its crust.

Nothing says like "Rugged individualist worthy of inheriting the mantle of the founding fathers and leading this nation through any crisis and against any opponent" like throwing a tantrum over those big meanies on late night TV who were totally poopyheads.

Holy shiat, and he's not even a nominee yet.  if they can't take this shiat now, they are screwed come primary season.

Honestly I think this is a way for Rush to keep taking Chris Christie down. If he had said nothing about then it might have been forgotten by the next news cycle. His gassy expirations have breathed a whole new life into the song. They are trying to keep the pain alive.

They will never ever forgive him for hugging the blah man.

El Rushbo whining like a biatch.  A member of the new castrati, if you will.

Rush limbaugh was a popular radio personality at the time. Do you really think that Chelseas classmates didn't hear about what he did?

13 year old girls are incredibly sensitive about their looks. Limbaugh mocking her just confirms what we all know- he is an evil fark. If I was Bill clinton, two days after Rush spouted out that garbage there would have been stories about his sudden disappearance. What's the use of having the CIA if they can't take out the trash now and then.

Nadie_AZ: Is he still relevant? Seriously. It is 2014.



I honestly had completely forgot he existed. It's like Bieber headlines, please as a culture let's just let this guy swirl down the drain with the rest of the insipid crap-mongers.
 
2014-01-17 01:09:21 PM
Ah, this is orgasmic. We're coming together.

Thank you, Rush. I'm going to take a Silkwood shower now.
 
2014-01-17 01:13:34 PM
I didn't imagine that Christie would be that sensitive that his feelings would be crushed because Springsteen parodied himself with Christie as the subject.  I think Chris would have found it somewhat funny, considering what many others are saying.

Rush doesn't have a sense of humor anyway, so that part isn't surprising.  Unless he's mocking someone with Parkinsons, then its funny as can be.  Or calling people a slut, a dog or a magic negro.   Oh, but HE didn't call him that, he just gave it air time.

You can treat that whining, Rush. Take two Dominican boys and call us in the morning.

It's not so much about knowing what Rush Limbaugh is saying as it is about being prepared lest you come across one of his deranged, nutbag listeners so you can identify and avoid them like they disease they are.
 
2014-01-17 01:23:31 PM
I love how Republicans go on and on about liberals wanting everything "PC" and are wussifying everything and then something like this happens and they cry like babies.

The fact that Rush Limbaugh still has a show is a bad omen for our future.  Why does anyone think he's worth listening to?  I don't get it.

Rush isn't into pubescent girls since the "change" makes them less like boys. Sweet, smooth Dominican boys
 
2014-01-17 01:24:41 PM
IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO HOW HOT LIMBERGER WAS AT  13. Nah... nevermind just let him slip back into obscurity with Beck and Coulter. And never get him wet or say their names 3 times.  NEXT!
 
2014-01-17 01:26:19 PM
Why would he defend Christie? Limbaugh has already said Christie isn't conservative enough to be established as innocent of the charges.

Well, obviously, that's my point. These people on the left are mean, small, petty.

Kind of like you you called a certain young woman a slut for like 2 months straight, because she thought birth control ought to be covered by insurance?

That's because the best comedy makes fun of everybody, including the person telling the joke.  That way everyone can join in the laugh.

Yeah, but he's still a Republican (even if he is a RINO), and that means that he must be defended at any cost against a smelly liberal hippie like Springsteen.

This is why it's folly to take Rush seriously.  He's filling air by entertaining conservative airheads.  He has no other purpose.

Unfortunately, while all he's doing is schtick, there are tons of people who think and act on it as if it were law.

But I'm getting tired of making that fairly obvious observation.
 
2014-01-17 01:34:20 PM
FWIW, Limbaugh apologized in person to Hillary Clinton for that act of blatant stupidity.

He's probably high, too.  And erect.

slayer199: He pisses liberals off


Not really.  Rush says something stupid, the "liberals" you speak of simply laugh and mock him, and then Rush gets pissed off at the ridicule and says something even dumber.

Conservatives really do have a very hard time differentiating between someone laughing at them for saying something stupid and someone being pissed off and trying to censor them.  They don't seem to understand that anyone with an IQ above room temperature sees Rush as nothing more than a source of humor.

EVERY 13 year old looks awkward. Puberty sucks.

who called Chelsea Clinton a dog when she was 13

Of course, that's not what happened, but truth is an expendable commodity when a partisan hate-monger needs to weave a good narrative, isn't it?
