It doesn’t matter that he’s just a mouthpiece who tells scared conservatives exactly what they want to hear. It doesn’t matter that he can’t think for himself; he’s just a parrot for conservative ideology. It doesn’t matter that he promulgates an endless war between the two parties; that’s what conservatives want, a war between us and them . . . and they win. (But not with this election, and that’s why they’re so angry: sour grapes.) And it won’t matter that Limbo can’t even get the wording of the Constitution correct.
But my, he sure do have a nice voice, don’t he?
And now, with Limbo’s recent speechifying before the neocons who want Obama to fail and us regular Americans to shut the hell up about our exorbitant taxes (while they pay little or nothing), the Rich, Fat Liar is actually positioning himself if not for the role of President, then as a politician of some kind (and do you really think Limbo’s show biz ego — and that’s what he does for a living: it’s show biz — would let him accept any position less than President?). Here. Decide for yourself. RNC Chair Michael Steele was interviewed by D. L. Hughley on CNN a few days ago. Rush and his constituents were up in arms about something Steele said:
HUGHLEY: Rush Limbaugh, who is the de facto leader of the Republican Party —
STEELE: No, he’s not.
HUGHLEY: Well, I’ll tell you what, I’ve never —
STEELE: I’m the de facto leader of the Republican Party.
HUGHLEY: Then you know what? Then I can appreciate that, but no — no one will — will actually pry down some of the things he says, like when he comes out and says that he wants the president to fail, I understand he wants liberalism to fail.
STEELE: How is that any different than what was said about George Bush during his presidency? Let’s put it into context here. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, the whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it’s incendiary, yes, it’s ugly —
That’s all that was said; but Limbo and his Republitard minions want to believe that Limbo is more than an entertainer. If that’s true, what is he? A politician? Not yet. A leader? Of what? No, he’s just a mouthpiece who repeats the same self-serving lies to like-minded people who have a desperate need to feel reassured that their world, their way of life, isn’t coming to an end, and that they are in charge and far, far above the common folk . . . meaning you and me.
Read Limbo’s long-winded response here, and decide for yourself if he’s positioning himself for a run at Obama in 2012 or not. And while you’re at his site, make sure you buy one of his humorous “Club Gitmo” commemorative torture t-shirts.
“Hey, it’s just a joke, people!“
There’s something wrong with you, Limbo. Just like with Ann Coulter.
Oh, by the way, ThinkProgress.org is now reporting that Michael Steele, important politician, has apologized to Limbo:
Steele has quickly backed down. Politico reports that Steele “reached out” to Limbaugh today to say that he didn’t mean what he said.
“My intent was not to go after Rush – I have enormous respect for Rush Limbaugh,” Steele said in a telephone interview. “I was maybe a little bit inarticulate. … There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.” […]
“I went back at that tape and I realized words that I said weren’t what I was thinking,” Steele said. “It was one of those things where I thinking I was saying one thing, and it came out differently. What I was trying to say was a lot of people … want to make Rush the scapegoat, the bogeyman, and he’s not.”
Steele made clear that he will welcome Limbaugh into the party,” calling him a “very valuable conservative voice for our party.” “He does what he does best, which is provoke,” Steel said. “My job is to try to bring us all together.”
Steele isn’t alone. Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) and Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) have previously dared to criticize Limbaugh but then quickly backed down. To quote Rush, a lot of Republicans are being told to “bend over and grab the ankles” for him.
Limbo. Entertainer, addict and poster boy for fat asses, liars and weasels. And my apologies to weasels.
