I have heard it expressed several times this week by pundits and friends, and I hate to say that I agree, the the next governors of our fine nation have a lot of work to do just to get us back to the starting line. If you need any indication of how far gone is good government, all you need to observe is the current president’s latest veto. The man vetoed a popular, bi-partisan initiative to provide more children with basic health care, an intiative that even had support in the insurance industry, had support among Republigoats, had support among, oh, humans, and he vetoes it, comingling it in his own bizarre, hula-jawed fashion, with commienism. That is how badly off we are and how far and hard we will have to fight when President Obama takes office.
But it’s nice to see that Comedian Rush Limbaugh is on the ropes. Click that link there to see the entire thing via Media Matters, but this here’s the guts of it: Limbaugh says, “I called him a hero. I called him a hero. The other reference is to where the drive-by media runs in, blows things up, creates all these messes, and then heads on down the road to create another one. I called him a suicide bomber—you see how this works. I didn’t call anybody who legitimately serves a ‘phony soldier.’ I didn’t call this guy a suicide bomber.”
No, you disingenuous fuckpig? Then why select the specific metaphor you selected? “You know, this is such a blatant use of a valiant combat veteran, lying to him about what I said, then strapping those lies to his belt, sending him out via the media in a TV ad to walk into as many people as he can walk into.” No, disingenous fuckpig, you did not “call him a suicide bomber.” But you might be wise to indicate that you are sorry for using this unfortunate language, since, you know, Brian McCoff—McGough—it’s M-C-G-O-U-G-H—sustained his injuries due to a suicide bomber.
Does this big fat idiot forget that he’s ON THE RADIO?
