Rush cries ‘voter suppression’ – creative little shit, isn’t he

The real Dark Knight

In what may be the most breathtaking turn-it-on-its -head moment in political rhetoric, Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday claimed that the Obama campaign and all Democrats and all the pollsters and all the media are conspiring to suppress the Republican vote.

Here’s how it works. Diabolical pollsters ask questions in a dishonest fashion designed to show Obama leading. The media publish and pushes that narrative. The campaign seizes upon this (of course they’re actually behind it but that’s hidden behind an impenetrable veil of secrecy financed by George Soros and Warren Buffet) and it gloats. All of this combines to discourage Romney voters who are made to think there’s just no point in voting since Obama is sure to win.

Presto! Voter suppression.

He’s a marvel he is.

This isn’t the first time, is it? I think he ‘threatened’ this before.

Reasons must be found, must be found!

Matt Drudge provides a glimpse of a  possible script. Because excuses must be made, excuses must be made!!

Flash! Anderson Cooper not afraid of Rush Limbaugh

This is exquisite.

On Thursday, Mr. Limbaugh of Palm  Beach spoke ill of Anderson Cooper, who lightheartedly responded with gentle use of the one weapon that I think has power with the morbidly obese four-times married public moralizer- he mocked him. He as good as said the unsayable: the guy is too fat.

Did Rush lash back on Friday?

Let’s let Bill Maher explain

Mr. Limbaugh of Palm Beach along with the rest of the perpetually outraged professional right-wing defend the four times married morbidly obese one with what they claim is equivalence:”But Bill Maher called Palin a cunt!”.

Silly comparison. Maher explains it precisely:

MAHER:  To compare that to Rush is ridiculous – he went after a civilian about very specific behavior, that was a lie, speaking for a party that has systematically gone after women’s rights all year, on the public airwaves. I used a rude word about a public figure who gives as good as she gets, who’s called people “terrorist” and “unAmerican.” Sarah Barracuda. The First Amendment was specifically designed for citizens to insult politicians. Libel laws were written to protect law students speaking out on political issues from getting called whores by Oxycontin addicts.

Tokyo Rush*?

There’s yet another petition moving across the interwebs, this one demanding that Rush be removed from Armed Forces Radio. Lots of people – liberals included – see that as a First Amendment infringement.

But Duane, a very smart guy, has it exactly right I think. He derides Sen. Carl Levin, chair of the Armed Services Committee who said:

I think that is probably an issue best left to the folks that run that network.  In other words, I’d love to see them drop it but I don’t think I’d legislate it.

Duane adds:

Oh, yeah? You mean it is okay that our men and women in uniform hear a blowhard know-nothing tell them that their Commander-in-Chief hates America and wants to destroy it? 

Say no more.

* WWII Japanese radio propagandist, Tokyo Rose (actually more than one woman took the mic as ‘Rose’), whose mission was to undermine the morale of the US troops. The US Military tried repeatedly to shut down her signal but never managed to keep it off the air completely.

Such a joker

Any comedian knows that the more they repeat the very same ‘joke’ to the same audience, over and over, the funnier it gets.  (from Think Progress)
