(Salon)   Rush Limbaugh says "12 Years a Slave" only won Best Picture because it had "slave" in the title. Presumably, he'd have voted for "Wolf of Wall Street," "American Hustle" or "Fatass Blowhard Who Hasn't Seen the Movie"   (salon.com ) divider line

He's just furious that his favorite curvy Latin sexpot from "Modern Family" can't win Best Actor -- you know, Rico Rodriguez?

How can anyone tell me he's not a frothing racist.  he is the exact definition of the term.

Rush is right.

Nearly every Best Picture winner for the past 50 years has had "slave" in the title... study it out.
 
2014-03-04 12:15:31 PM  
It is fair to say that the Oscars have always had a weakness (especially for best picture) for socially conscious issues.  Also a bias for movies that shape the National dialogue.

You would think he would like a movie with 12 in the title, that is the maximum age of his Dominican boys.

He is a troll extraordinaire... he's the current Grand Master IRL Troll, with Anne Coulter as his protegee.  He knows peoples' buttons, and he knows all the dog whistles to blow... and it has made him a (no-doubt) regret-free mountain of money, drugs, and influence.

Exactly... and yet here we are, lapping it up, although if only a few people (10 so far) click on the Salon link then it won't really be adding fuel to the "Rush says mean thing, liberal bloggers react with righteous indignation, many page views occur" fire.

Limbaugh has a problem...he has just about reached peak derp. In order to keep himself relevant he needs to tune the derp past 11 on the dial...but he can't sustain that level of derp for long. There just isn't any way for him to stay that offensive all the time and he can't make his derp self sustaining. So he keeps searching for things to keep him in the mainstream public eye, but the market is already saturated and needs him to ramp up to an even higher level if he wants to catch people's attention again. And every time he wants attention, he has to go up another notch.

Yo Spielberg, this was the problem with "The Color Purple" back in the day.  Change it to "The Color Black" and you would have converted on at least a couple of those 11 nominations.  Alice Walker wouldn't have cared.

I have never listened to the show and only became aware of him when Howard Stern was making fun of him for his prescription drug abuse/addiction. Obviously, I am aware of how "outrageous" he is and I think for a long time it was probably just an act, but now has been his m.o. for so long he has become that person. Either way, it's embarrassing that he can draw an audience.
 
2014-03-04 01:27:43 PM  
Fatass Blowhard Who Hasn't Seen the Movie was pretty good if you get past the horrible editing decisions, and a relative unknown cast who were working with the scripts they were given. There's only so much one can expect from a movie like that.

Ah yes, he was mad about getting called out on that. Then 5 minutes later asked "I wonder how many low-information voters think slavery only lasted 12 years because of that title."

He did not wonder aloud how many of his listeners think kidnapping a black guy into slavery sounded spiffy.

But he's more than a troll.  A troll just wants to stir shiat up, to piss off people, to aggravate a group.  He wants to that while at the same time inspiring and rallying people who actually believe his troll-speak.  He's like the Braveheart of trolls.

I think limbaughs strategy these days goes something like this:

1. shiat on dining room table, wait for someone to complain and then blame Obama.
2. shiat on kitchen floor, wait for someone to complain and then blame Obama.
3. shiat on patio, wait for someone to complain and then blame Obama.
4. Complain about the fact that Obama shiat all over the house and the democrats refuse to clean it up.
5. Profit.

But the Salons and Thinkprogresses of the world have a symbiotic relationship with him par excellence. They can piss and moan about Rush saying something outrageous, Rush can piss and moan about them...the ciiiiircle of liiiiiife...and clicks and ratings.

What are they going to do for a foil when he retires? It's not like Mike Huckabee has that same pull.

There's still Beck, and Deadbart.  Then you've got always insaneTed Cruz and the equally intellectually bereft Sam Brownback.  I'm not too concerned about ThinkProgress and Salon running out of material anytime soon.

I would have to assume that particular film features Lexington Steel. Rush probably skipped it since he likes 'em small and brown.

Both sides are bad, ignore the rampaging parade of farkwits on one side to present it's just liberal publications getting angry at a single conservative that no seriously he doesn't have any pull and isn't taken seriously by lots of conservatives.
