rush to idiocy

rush to idiocy

Rush Limbaugh:

Hey, I have a great idea! Let's bomb Iraq on September 11th! What better way to commemorate the senseless killings of thousands of innoncent people, the suffering of millions and our disdain of terrorism by bombing the hell out of another country that we aren't even at war with yet! (paraphrased, of course, but a damn near likeness to what he said).

I can think of so many reasons why this idea is idiotic at best, but then again it's Rush. Nuff said.

Rush started his radio show here in Sacramento. He replaced Morton Downey Jr (you may remember his TV show), who was fired for using the word "jap" on the air. Rush wasn't very popular at first, but then he started doing his pompous conservative schtick and it caught on. After a couple of years here, he moved to New York and nationwide syndication. He is really a pretty quiet and insecure guy in person, but he has learned what gets attention and works it hard. I just feel sorry for people that believe he is serious about the things he says.

He may or may not be serious, but a huge audience hangs on every word, so the intent may not matter much; that's what's so frightening. Father Coughlin comes to mind.

"Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot." I didn't come up with that, but I sure as hell agree with it.

I absolutely love living in a country where we don't have columnists like this, or where no one takes any notice of them.

He is an entertainer, nothing more. I put as much weight into waht he says as I do when an other stupid moron who made alot of movies tells me things they know nothing about.

Like Linkmeister said, it's not so much what he says, because he blows a lot of hot air, it's the fact that his listeners hang on his every word as if it were gospel. And he knows this.

I stand by my statement that he is an idiot.

Matt, we have the Daily Mail. Nuff zed.
