Rush, Do STFU

Sometimes You Just Have to Laugh to Keep from Crying

ts-daisy

Because daisies are pretty and I'm sick of looking at Sweaty Man.

Rush Limbaugh.  Sigh.  ::shakes head:: Crazy Man No. 1 is now comparing Sonia Sotomayor to David Duke.  Yes.  White Supremacist David Duke.  Former Grand Wizard of the KKK David Duke.  Anti-semitic David Duke.

Not only does she lack the often discussed appropriate judicial temperament, it’s worse than that. She brings a form of bigotry and racism to the court. I don’t care, we’re not supposed to say it, we’re supposed to pretend it didn’t happen, we’re supposed to look at other things but it’s the elephant in the room. The real question here that needs to be asked and nobody on our side from a columnist to a TV commentator to anybody in our party has the guts to ask, how can a president nominate such a candidate? And how can a party get behind such a candidate? That’s what would be asked if somebody were foolish enough to nominate David Duke or pick somebody even less offensive. It is asked.

Is this for real?  I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.

  1. I know what you’re thinking… Why oh why didn’t I take the BLUE pill?

  2. Rush does know that the Georges both appointed her to the bench, right?

  3. Actually, 772, it was Clinton who appointed her to her present position. Bush 41 (the conniving but non-idiot Bush) appointed her to court, but with Democratic input (specifically, Senator Moynihan’s input).

    Anyway, why do people still listen to Limbaugh? He should have *no* credibility by now.

  4. I don’t get it either. It baffles me that anyone takes the word of any extremist. I wonder if he’s still popular because he makes others feel like they are middle of the road. But then, I know a lot of people who find that when someone echoes their views, they are entertained. They feel they have a voice. Even if that voice is the sad chicken that is Rush Limbaugh.

  5. RL – Voice of the Sheep

    He’s just being the righteous contrarian again. No substance, just flash. Let him keep blowing. The dinosaurs he represents are already on the way out. He and Cheney are just speeding up the process.

  6. SHE brings racism? Sorry to state the obvious, that’s a little hypocritical. HE’s the one pre-judging based on race, gender, assumption et cetera.

    This annoys me to the point that I’m not going to begin a rant. I’m just going to read another post.
