...it will never die.
The big brouhaha on CNN at the moment is what Wolf Blitzer just called the "Rush Limbaugh phenomenon." Phenomenon? Which phenomenon would that be? The fact that he has an audience? Oh...THAT phenomenon!
Apparently the big bag o' wind said today that John McCain is no friend to the Republican party, and a traitor to the conservatives in the GOP. I've just about had it with this idiocy. I'm a registered Republican, but I have yet to decide who I will vote for, and much of it will depend on who the nominees happen to be. I'm fiscally conservative, but socially liberal. Let me say here and now that numbnuts like Rush Limbaugh give Republicans a bad name, and they do not speak for me. Do you get that, dickweed? You do not speak for me. I think you're a big jerk, and you do nothing but sow divisiveness and discord. We have candidates this year that have actually worked together--what a concept!--with the other party to get things done. Most people in the country are just as pissed off at Congress as they are at the president, because they feel that our legislators refuse to work together, thus accomplishing nothing. NOTHING! What are we paying them for? To sit back and argue with each other, simply because they belong to different parties? We're paying them to run our country and they work for us. We're paying them to enact legislation that will make life better for each and every one of us.
Limbaugh's vilification of Senator McCain is abhorrent to me. His particular strain of bile and animosity serves no purpose but to divide, when it seems painfully obvious that if we want to turn things around in our still-great country, we all need to work together. And I believe it is a huge disservice and an insult of the worst kind to accuse McCain of being a traitor to anything or anyone. Let's see Limbaugh spend five years in a prison camp and see how he fares. There was never any danger of that, however, because during Viet Nam, Limbaugh was classified as 4-F (after he dropped out of college, by the way) due to a pilonidal cyst. Do you know what that is, folks? Two words: ass abscess. How interesting! Read about Rush and his cyst here.
