Margaret does Howard still listen to Rush everyday? I don’t listen to him often, but I tune in every now and again. He’s like a train wreck on the evening news. You don’t want to believe it’s true, but you keep checking back to see if there are any survivors.
Lately, I find myself tuning in for Open Line Fridays because that is when the real crazies come out. You just have to laugh at these morons if only for the fact that they are calling into a guy who is technically deaf. I mean, what’s the point really?
Having recently seen Mr. Limbaugh on the news giving that speech to the CPAC, I will definitely be listening in on this week’s Open Line Friday when I am sure Krispy Kreme will be calling in asking for their donuts back. Do they make an OxyContin donut these days? It certainly would explain a great deal.
A couple of weeks ago I was listening when a caller phoned in to ask Rush if he had really said that he wanted President Obama to fail. While these are not direct quotes, the general idea is pretty true to the actual call. If anybody heard this as well, let me know because I never thought such gullibility existed outside of the Orwell novel Animal Farm.
Rush: Go ahead caller.
Caller: Rush. Dittos from anywhere USA. I am a first time caller and I am so glad I reached you because I am so mad at my local news station.
Rush: Well Ma’am what exactly did your local news station do to get you so upset?
Caller: Rush. They reported that you said you wanted Obama to fail. And I listen to you all the time and I know I have never heard you say that. I mean I was so upset and I want to write a letter to them but I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss something. I mean you didn’t say that did you?
Rush: You know this is what makes me so mad. How the liberal media takes my words out of context and then turns them into a sensational news story just to try and make me look like a villain.
Caller: Well I knew you would never say something like that, but I wanted to make sure.
Rush: It is all so preposterous. Here is what happened. Here is what really happened and what I really said. A major print publication contacted me to get an opinion piece from me on what I thought about the Obama Presidency. They wanted me to give them a 400 word opinion piece. I told them I don’t need 400 words. I told them all I need is four words: I hope he fails. And that is what I said.
Caller: Well, I knew you would never say that you wanted Obama to fail. I am going to write a letter to my news station and tell them to start telling the truth because I listen to you and I know what you really said.
Rush: Yes Ma’am. You do that. Because I know what I said as well…
So Margaret, ask Howad to explain this to me. Do you have to be deaf to be a caller on Open Line Fridays or just an idiot? Or maybe it’s both?
Seriously. Rush Limbaugh is too stupid to be getting this much attention, but we seem to be living here on Animal Farm where Republican leaders are kneeling down to their Napoleon pig king asking for forgiveness. Nothing surprises me anymore. Maybe Rush’s call screener should start by asking “two legs or four?”
Well Margaret, I hope you and Howard are staying warm. It’s getting harder and harder to travel these days but I do hope we can plan a trip soon. Know that I love you. I mean it. Really.
