|Rush Limbaugh is STILL a big fat idiot|
after all these years.
The trouble with Franken is that he's way, WAY too polite. Calling Limbaugh a Big Fat Idiot is like calling a Minnesota winter "slightly brisk."
I bring this up because of Limbaugh's latest antic. I know there's so many to choose from, but I haven't done it in awhile so what the heck.
Here it is: You might have heard that a bartender at an Ohio country club House Speaker John Boehner likes to go to threatened to kill the congressman.
Something about Boehner being the devil and causing Ebola. Yes, our bartender was deranged, and let's hope some mental health treatment is in the works for the guy.
Limbaugh acknowledged the bartender was crazy, but why? Well, in Limbaugh's world, the reason our bartender thought Boehner caused Ebola is because he was influenced by Democrats, says Talking Points Memo.
Huh? Those nasty Democrats.
Here's Limbaugh's logic: Democrats back in October criticized Republicans for cutting funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some Democrats had suggested that the funding cuts might have slowed the Center's efforts to find an Ebola vaccine.
Yeah, the Democrats' claim was a bit of a stretch, but Limbaugh's claim is stretchier than a rubber band that can extend around Limbaugh's um, ample waistline.
In Limbaugh land, the Democrats should not have criticized Republicans because a crazed bartender in Ohio would hear the Democrats and then decide it was all Boehner's fault that Ebola happened.
I guess Democrats are accessory to attempted murder, in Limbaugh land.
The Internet is rife with lists of the worst things Limbaugh has ever said. There's a lot of them. I'm not sure who's worse. Him or sleazy performance artist Ann Coulter.
Here's a few things Limbaugh said, most of the following, according to Addicting Info:
"Women should not be allowed on juries where the accused is a stud."
"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society."
"The only way to reduce the number of nucler weapons is to use them."
(Yeah, let's nuke everybody. That would make the world better!)
And finally, when he didn't want us to donate money to Haitian earthquake victims in 2010, he said, "We've already donated to Haiti. It's called the U.S. income tax."
Obviously, I don't lose sleep over the stupid things stupid Limbaugh says. I don't even worry about his equally stupid fan base of mostly loser middle age guys, most of whom are probably too stupid to work, but blame "feminazis" for their unemployment, as Limbaugh would put it.
But we always need a reminder, just to beware, that Limbaugh is unfortunately still on the airwaves, and after all these years of useless blather from him, Limbaugh is still a big fat idiot.
Just worse than that.
