Ingraham said she's been in talks to take over for Rush Limbaugh, who recently revealed his Stage 4 lung cancer might force him off the radio. "Laura's really interested in Rush's job," a person close to Ingraham said. (Ingraham did not respond to a request for comment.)

Her and Hannity both possess the same qualification - a horrendously grating voice.

Limbaugh has stage four lung cancer? But I'm an atheist. And this means there is a God. I'm still not reciting the Apostles' creed. I'll just say, "thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you" during that part.

Dying of lung issues really sucks. It's drawn out and painful and terrifying.


Anyway, funny to see how the right is abandoning Trump. Fox is pulling away, Republican leaders, media tyeps. They're all jumping the Trump train hoping you'll forget they ever knew him.

Some of these rats are really, really slow. I'm surprised at how many are still on board, but I guess it makes sense that the ones with nowhere else to go will stick around until the last deck is submerged.

Which is good for Limbaugh. Even if this cancer drags out for 10 years its still not even 1% of all the pain he has caused the world in his life.

Ingraham might be considered too 'elite' with her J.D. from Virginia Law.  Better to go with Hannity and his GED instead.

It's funny that Trump has become such a cancer for the right that the rightwing establishment will be very happy if he gets silenced by ending up in prison. They'll sit back and quietly chuckle as he gets prosecuted.

...and Rush Limbaugh's career has been long, drawn out, and extremely painful. Glad to see the back of him, and I hope along his path to hell, he stubs every toe, skins each knee, and breaks a few of his ribs.

You might think I'm partisan against the GOP and for democrats... but guess what, I dont care about democrats, most of them are spineless cowards, only a few have guts.

I'm pro-freedom, pro-human rights, pro-human decency. Fox news and the GOP are 110% opposed to that. Most people who vote democrat are for those things but democrat politicians most of the time are corrupt AF and say these things to get elected but really, they are part of the problem, they love the status quo.

Yeah I'm partisan, I'm against humans screwing other humans over for money or power.

This is one of the things that always baffled me about conservative talk radio.  All these "personalities" sound like assholes when they talk.

I always wondered, "Who wants to listen to an asshole talk for three hours?"

And then it dawned on me...

Oh god I hope she replaces rush. That would be so beautifully poetic to watch his position in conservatism be replaced by someone from any one of groups he's been sewing suspicion or denigration of over the last several years. Even if they don't notice it cause she don't sound a whole lot different it would be a seismic shift were he to not be replaced by another angry white guy.

Anyway, funny to see how the right is abandoning Trump. Fox is pulling away, Republican leaders, media tyeps. They're all jumping the Trump train hoping you'll forget they ever knew him.


His approval ratings are still absurdly high among republican voters, so I wouldn't count any chickens just yet. Leaders, media, etc. may be grumbling behind closed doors, but that's meaningless Susan Collins-level garbage if they don't do it openly...

And as long as a large chunk of the country is fully invested in the Trump cult, most elected GOP officials won't be inclined to rock that boat, because they know they'll lose their job for it. The Trumpers are a large enough portion of Republicans overall that openly going against Trump would be political suicide for most.

You might get a few who jump ship in select areas, but I suspect they'll be rare.

The only way they start jumping ship in large numbers is if his poll numbers tank so bad he has zero shot of winning in November. In that case they'll all try to rehab their image by suddenly growing balls and speaking some truth about him.

But I'm not banking on it. I think he's largely bottomed out. Despite headlines every other day touting his sinking numbers, fact is that his approval ratings have been pretty consistent the entire time he's been in office. They fluctuate a bit, but have always remained in the high 30s / low 40s.

Until he drops into the high 20s, all these Republicans will continue to frown behind closed doors but will stand with him in public.

So basically, let's not get our hopes up and also, Fark all of them.

Yeah, ejecting Trump is priority #1, no question about it, but the work doesn't stop there. Removing Trump fixes the immediate problem, but the same underlying issues remain. More Trumps will follow.

Trump is awful because he's an ignorant, lumbering oaf who appeals to the lowest common denominator. It's worked in his favor but has also been a double-edged sword.

The big worry is getting someone with as little regard for the law and decency as Trump, but who is also smart and capable. Someone like that in the White House, with a stacked DoJ and so on?

Yikes.

They got all the tax cuts and SCOTUS nominations they're ever gonna squeeze out of that turnip. Now they're gonna toss him aside and make plans for what new rubber-stamp they'll nominate in 2024.

Good for you.
Chemotherapy destroys cells. It is a misery to all involved. Even though it's effectiveness has increased and the side effects decreased it still sucks.
If it's your only hope, you gobble it up and hope for a good outcome.

So I agree with everything you have stated, and do not look forward to the next 4 years of political chemo, but it is clearly better than the stage 4 BS we have had for the last 4 years.
4 more years may prove to be fatal.

Which is why I want Rush to experience every last bit of it.  He can't be on opioid painkillers due to his previous addiction (or at least that's the way it would be for a "regular" American), and he can't have assisted suicide since that would be anathema to everything he's espoused for the last umpteenth years.

I want him to experience it all, the full weight of karma coming down on him.

According to a source, former Ted Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe is in talks to join the campaign as a strategic adviser, effectively taking over for embattled campaign manager Brad Parscale. A source said Parscale has threatened to resign if Roe joins. (Parscale did not respond to a request for comment.) Some question the wisdom of bringing on Roe. "Jeff Roe is a religious-right guy. That's not what Trump needs. He needs someone to go broad," a prominent Republican said.

Well, TBF he loves the broads.

I just watched it, too.  Some good "out of context" clips from both Democrats and Trump, to make his paeans to the Confederacy over the Fourth to seem happy-clappy kum by yah stuff, and the Dem reactions to be unhinged in comparison.  Some whaddaboutery with Jussie Smollet, "cancel culture" and dismissing Trump's demand that Bubba Wallace apologize for something he never did as an "inartfully worded tweet".

Here's the thing:  She claims all of this is lies by Democrats and the media, but she doesn't ever actually identify any lies.  She's highlighting opinions that differ from hers, but there aren't any lies. Except the ones she's foisting, in omitting the hateful parts of Trump's speeches (drawing equivalents between BLM and Nazis) and in claiming there would be lies.

The only way she could characterize the differing opinions as "lies" is if she could read Democrat's minds and from doing so she knew they were not honestly reporting how they felt about Donald Trump's words.

And I long ago stopped accepting political input from people who claim to be able to read minds.

It's amazing the mileage right-wing pundits got out of that case. I think they'll still be bringing his name up 20 years from now, while continuing to ignore the hundreds (thousands?) of actual racially-motivated and homophobia-motivated assault cases that come up every single year.
