Haitian orphans have received nothing short of a miraculous blessing from this earthquake. 2 weeks ago these orphans looked forward to being booted out onto the mean streets of a third world hell hole and now most of them are humming the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. Don't tell me God doesn't exist.

I'm as liberal as they come, but I was moved by this.

/C'mon, libs, can't we budge a little?

ha-ha_charade_u_r__guy: downtownant: MrSteve007: downtownant: Idiot liberals can "boycott" Rush's advertisers as if those unemployed NPR listeners could actually afford any of the products.

You obviously don't know anything about mass media demographics. The average NPR listener is actually the most impressive of any media outlet. 65% are college educated, have a $86,000 income - compared to the US average of 25% college educated and a $55,000 income. They're the audience most advertisers would kill for, if it weren't for the limits of underwriting.

Yeah just like they supported Air America right? My point is Rush has nothing to worry about from Whargarbl liberals who dislike him. If you guys simply ignored him he wouldn't be taking up valuable real estate in your heads.

You're right!

As long as he's got millions of dollars, Oxicontin, Viagra and child prostitutes, he's probably not worried about much.

Seriously though, I love how you ignore the FACTS that completely disprove your assertion, and then jump on the "Air America" bit. Way to go, Limbaugh fellator, Rush would be proud.


No, you are!

Mija: A mass murderer says one sensible thing to one of his insane supporters. That does not make him a hero.


Shut up moron. Mass murderer? What a cockish thing to write. Bush was supposed to caretake the transition from Saddam to the next government (owing it's security to the USA). This strategy was set by the actions of Presidents and planners all the way back to Carter. Your man Clinton murdered err killed plenty from afar when he ordered multiple airstrikes on Iraq during his presidency. 9-11 was designed by our enemies to play with the minds of our "liberals" aka cockheads. It was an attempt by our enemies to derail our longstanding plan to keep Iraq out of Iranian hands after Saddam got old and weak.

In the middle east, in the absence of a governing tribe (the US Armed Forces) chartered with the responsibility to maintain order while democratic processes take place, the strongest man becomes the leader. It's a battle of brutes not unlike what takes place on the Serengeti plains when lions battle for the right to lead the pride. Primitive farks they are, these people needed our steady hand to get them through their transition from Saddam to something other than his thoroughly evil and corrupt sons or more likely a Mahdi religious whackjob (Al Sadr) backed by Iran. Bush stuck with the plan in spite of our enemies daring us to chase them into Afghanistan.

Open your baby liberal eyes and see the world as it really is, doucheface.

Earguy: Limbaugh doesn't release Arbitron ratings. However, I have a friend in the industry who told me that last quarter, his show was ranked #6 in New York City on his "flagship station" WABC.

Also keep in mind that Limbaugh is on in mid-days. Radio "prime time" is morning-drive and afternoon-drive. He really has no competition. Put Rush on against a lame-ass morning zoo and I bet he wouldn't do well.


Don't blame Rush, if you'd been popping Oxycontin and chasing Dominican boys around all night you'd want to sleep in as well.

This is how Reagan came to be remembered as a saint. He was pretty right-wing (moreso than Nixon, believe it or not!), but Gingrich and Norquist and all the "Contract with America" Republicans who followed him were such raving reactionaries that Uncle Ronnie looked almost moderate by comparison (there was also the "aww" factor--he was a feeble old man who called his wife "Mommy"--but that's beside the point). That generation culminated in W, a millionaire politician who liked to pretend he was Joe Sixpack, like Stalin identifying with the proletariat. Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, W is succeeded as the face of American conservatism by the likes of Palin and Beck, genuine lumpen realmurkins so batshiat insane they make Bush appear positively statesmanlike. I can hardly wait to see what comes next--what rough beast slouches toward Orlando to be born?

Dang!
Just look at his face!
Bush looks serious, level-headed, mature.

Dare I say it: WISE

I'd vote for him, now


Bush looks calm and relieved and out of it. His face is somewhat lopsided so maybe he has had a stroke, and/or maybe he is medicated and/or experiencing early Alzheimer's.

Anyway, Bush is glad to be out of the job that he was unqualified for (where he regurgitated quips like "the problem with Wall Street is that there is too much regulation") and would just like to lead a life where he can crack dirty jokes, ride his bicycle, and clear brush without seriously injuring himself.

Seriously, when even George W. farking Bush calls you a douchebag, you know you're a douchebag.


Actually, this ties perfectly with my impression of Bush (while he was in) that he was well-intentioned but irredeemably clueless and at the beck and call of, well, the closest real-life thing I've yet seen to Star Wars's evil emperor, including the Pope.

You notice that since Cheney and Bush were pried apart, Cheney's kept right on being nasty while Bush has more or less vanished, and has now said something nice? They say first impressions are often the best, and that was just my first impression of the two. YMMV.

meat0918: I want to know how many outrage addicted Democrats listen to him alongside the outrage addicted Republicans.


I was a fan of the man in my early twenties, then I got tired of his shenanigans with callers (pretending to answer a question with feigned outrage diatribes as he had his staff end their call).
I was a non-listener for many years as a result of that.
I started listening again in 2006. He hasn't won me over, nor does he outrage me.
But damn if he isn't the best at getting people to talk out their asses about him.
He can predict when and what stupid stuff people will say about what stupid stuff he will say next (and usually does start with the prediction).
It's not that it's hard to do. What's hard to take is how many people fall for it.
I still can't decide if the outrage from his critics isn't actually part of his show;)

Idiot liberals can "boycott" Rush's advertisers as if those unemployed NPR listeners could actually afford any of the products.


Well, every time I've listened to Rush the Drug-Gobbler, all the ads are for vocabulary-building tapes and Ensyte penis-building pills. Seems to me NPR listeners aren't the target audience.

Now run along and order some of Dr. Abernathy's Boner Pills.

And anyone that's really interested, the advertisers you can boycott are listed right here:

Link (new window)

Actually, I shop pretty often from Overstock.com, but I think I'll stop. Since I was capable of going out and meeting people and have a spouse, I don't think I'll be needing to visit Eharmony. Here we have discount travel house Hotwire (what was that about affording products and services?) I'm not currently in the market for the services the Neptune Society offers, don't need a $400 Oreck vacuum because I have wood floors, there's no Smart and Final discount(again with the discounts)grocer where I live, no AutoZone, I'm not shopping for Life Insurance currently, not losing my hair, don't need a metal building or lumber, can't imagine I'd ever be dumb enough to purchase an emu oil product..

You know, the only one on there I might have troubles staying away from would be Pfizer. I wonder if they sponsor Rush with cash or goods?

Not a bad impression. History will record GWB, I think, as merely an average president, not bad, not great; just an average guy in extraordinary times; with the misfortune to have Darth Sidious as his vice president, and lacking the real backbone to stand up to someone with the full power of the Dark Side behind him. Not his fault, really.
 
2010-01-19 12:29:25 AM  
Good for W. However his quote....
Asked by host David Gregory if he drew any lessons from the recovery efforts after Hurricane Katrina (widely regarded as tragically bungled), Bush replied:

"First of all, it takes time to get the supplies in place. That shouldn't deter them. In other words, there's an expectation-- amongst people that things are going to happen quickly. And sometimes it's hard to make things happen quickly. Secondly, there is a great reservoir of good will that wants to help. And that's why he asked us to help, and we're glad to do it."


I guess once a politician, always a politician.

Yeah, and he deserves some praise for SOME of the things he did.
 
2010-01-19 12:53:10 AM  
I'm in the middle of reading a Stephen King book and just realized Rush Limbaugh's transcripted comments sound like the asshole characters in a lot of King's stuff.

I mean seriously, "It's made-to-order for 'em," Limbaugh said. "That's why he couldn't wait to get out there. Could not wait to get out there." That's what a small-town King villain tells his lackeys (or his own insane brain) before getting started on some mayhem.

Does King model his villains after Limbaugh, or is that just a parallel coincidence?

\also: never thought Dubya was evil, just misguided
 
2010-01-19 1:08:23 AM  
If he does some good for the Haitian situation, he deserves the credit.

I don't mind the idea of these former politicians competing for the title of Best Former President by doing humanitarian work.

It's always good when career criminals turn over a new leaf, after all.
 
2010-01-19 1:41:58 AM  
I'd really like to hear Cheney's thoughts on this issue. I think it would be very telling- I still feel like he's doing all this Obama bashing because he's not done in politics. I wouldn't put it past that old bastard to have a bit of an immortality complex, and I can see him now thinking about becoming Palin's puppetmaster back in the White House.

If he agrees with Bush on this, it might be a signal that he's just being a cranky old man with all of his criticism's of the President. But if he backs up Rush, there might be something far more sinister going on here.

downstairs: I'm pretty sure the Bushes never really cared for Limbaugh. Goes back to George H. W. Bush's presidency.


Rumour has it that they hated the Reagans as well. Looked down on them as, in their eyes, Hollywood trash.

As for the broken clock being right twice a day - as I recall, this would be the second. I am sure I read in 2004 that Bush proposed a manned mission to Mars, something I supported at the time and still think is a marvelous idea, both for the sheer human achievement and for the advances in technology and engineering that would be developed as a part of building the project.

He sucked as a president but I don't doubt he was a good person. His VP however I'm not so sure about.
