It’s the last day of the first decade of the new century and America’s favorite hate-monger will greet the new year “resting comfortably” in a hospital bed in Hawaii after suffering chest pains.
I’m trying to squirt a tear or two for Rush Limbaugh, but I seem to coming up dry. Well, at least I’m not laughing at him the way he did when he mocked actor Michael J. Fox and suggested Fox was “exaggerating” his Parkinson’s Disease symptoms in a campaign ad for a Democratic candidate in 2006.
“He is exaggerating the effects of the disease,” Limbaugh told listeners. “He’s moving all around and shaking and it’s purely an act. . . . This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn’t take his medication or he’s acting.”
Some left-wing, pinko, commie, America hatin’, Obama votin’ traitor might wonder if Boss Limbaugh’s is suffering some side effects due to his well-known addiction to OxyContin? Well, I guess it’s possible…
If I’m being a bastard for my lack of sympathy, Rush was a bigger bastard first. All the nasty shit you put out in the world has a habit of coming back around and landing smack dab on your feet. When Limbaugh decided going after a man fighting a chronic, incurable disease would be fun, he went over a line of civility, decency and humanity he should have known better to cross.
I can’t stand the SOB, but I actually hope he gets better. Who knew the bastard had a heart?
One thing I do wonder about. Was Limbaugh in Hawaii at the same time while the president was vacationing there? Glenn Beck will be demanding to know whether Obama was seen pulling a “Mission Impossible” and climbing the side of the Kahala Hotel and Resort while wearing a black leotard with a syringe clenched between his teeth.
After all the evil shit Rush Limbaugh has said and done over the years, the fact he will spend the last day of the new millennium laid up in a hospital bed should be an opportunity for him to ponder whether someone’s trying to tell him something. Like change your evil ways and stop being such a dick.
From the last time I posted about Limbaugh I know by heart what the flummoxed response by his suck-up supporters will say. Something along the lines of, “Why do you HATE Rush so much? He’s just an ENTERTAINER!!”
I have to laugh at this “Rush is an entertainer” crap. Anyone who finds Limbaugh’s pomposity, arrogance, privilege, racism, misogyny, homophobia and abject cowardice “entertainment” is someone I am happy not to count as a friend. As far as the “hate” goes, Rush is a much better and far more vicious hater than I ever could be.
Rush has sent so much negativity out into the world. The fact that he’s lying in a bed somewhere with tubes running in and out of his orifices seems nothing less than poetic justice. I said from the jump I can’t stand the SOB and the fact he’s flat on his back won’t make me suddenly start liking him.
If someone wants to tell me despising Rush Limbaugh and everything he stands for means he has some influence over my life, that’s cool. My retort would be he has a lot of control over yours.
