And here, from this week, is an example of how Rush is faring. In sorting out the why's and wherefore's of "this [Gov. Mark] Sanford business," Limbaugh said, he actually said:
This is almost like: I don't give a damn! Country's going to hell in a handbasket. I just want out of here! He had just tried to fight the stimulus money coming to South Carolina. He didn't want any part of it. He lost the battle and said, "What the hell? The Federal government is taking over! I want to enjoy life!"
In other words, it's all Obama's fault. Oy.
Yes, it's one for the psychiatric record-books, folks: In Rush Limbaugh's increasingly dark, desperate and distorted mind, a $787 billion economic stimulus package is believable-enough stimulation to send a perfectly proper, right-thinking Southern governor into a follow-up exploration of Argentina's forbidden bush country.
So I put this to you: That's beyond strategic broadcasting; that's just plain nuts. And it just may be that Rush has been acting the lunatic for so long -- stridently bashing the left and absolving the right for ever-greater fun and profit -- he has finally become a genuine, certifiable one.
It's $40,000,000 a year nuts, Carp. The dittostooges eat it up. The more way out ludicrous his spew, the more his audience nods its head and drools and buys the Zicam.
I don't blame them for wanting to lose their sense of smell either. Bullshit's a lot more appetizing when you are willingly force-fed it if it you don't have to smell it. I want them to spray it on their reproductive organs.
