Mainstream

"He wants people in fear, angst and crisis, fearing the worst each and every day because that clears the decks . . . to come in with the answers which are abject failures, historically shown and demonstrated."

Who does this sound like to you? Who do you think is being described?

a. George W. Bush
b. Dick Cheney
c. An Apologist for the war on terror
d. Barack Obama

If you answered a., b., or c., guess what? You could not be more wrong. The correct answer, if you can believe it, is d. Barack Obama, our current president. This was among other things one of the profundities developed by that renowned intellectual and careful thinker, the big, fat idiot Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh, brothers and sisters, who yesterday gave the final speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Rush Limbaugh, a hack radio loudmouth, first among the preachers of hate on the airwaves is now apparently the voice of the Republican party. He was cheered by the conference like Roman emperor on a triumphal march at this gathering of Republican party faithful . . .

The statement at the top is typical of the kind of tripe emanating from these people now. The hypocrisy of these people makes me crazy. Keeping everyone in constant fear was what the Vile Little Pretender and his cronies did for eight years. And answers that were abject failures? Demonstrated by the history of this country in the era of Republican ascendancy? Can you imagine the utter disdain these radio blabbermouths have for their listeners? That they can confidently spew out reams of half-truths and outright lies in full confidence that their audience is going to lap it up and take it as gospel. Amazing, isn't it?

I can honestly say I find nothing quite as repulsive as the tribe of radio hate-mongers who number listeners in the millions every day. As I've said before, it's really scary the influence these despicable people have on political life of this country. Giving Rush Limbaugh a national platform to proclaim his twisted vision and spout his lies is yet another indication that the sun is setting on this country. Rush Limbaugh is mainstream! We are really in trouble.
