Poor conservatives. They just don’t get it:
This is in regards to the latest attempt to grab some limelight by that bloated sack of cow dung known as Rush Limbaugh. A remark so over the top outrageous that advertisers and even fellow Republicans — men and women — are condemning the comment.
But as the above Tweet from the National Review Online’s news editor shows, not everyone got the memo. They just can’t help themselves, the poor dears.
I think we’ve all seen this movie before. Republicans in Congress do something stupid like try to pass a law oppressing women, minorities, teachers, people on Medicare, etc. National outcry follows, polls show the Republicans hopelessly out of touch with the majority of voters, blah blah. What to do? Why, turn to one of your paid shills to “take one for the team.” Rush says something outrageously offensive on said topic — something guaranteed to raise the ire of the group in question, giving Republican legislators a chance to look reasonable by comparison. Lather, rinse, repeat.
The only way this stupid game stops is if everyone decides they don’t want to play along. I mean really, does anyone take this stuff seriously anymore? Rush Limbaugh is now and always has been a raging asshole, and he always will be a raging asshole. Assholery is Rush’s gimmick. Oh look, Rush said something offensive! Must be Wednesday.
Please. Rush is a useful tool of the right, but not in the way you think. He preaches to his choir and says intolerant, horrible things just for the pleasure of being able to spread his poison. He may get pleasure out of stirring up trouble but he’s just a circus sideshow. The really dangerous ones are the Republicans holding office around the country who pass these offensive laws in the first place. And when Rush says something to get everyone upset he’s just giving them cover. No Republicans, you do not get a pass for your Blunt Amendment votes just because you’re quoted as saying Rush Limbaugh’s comment was “inappropriate.” You know what’s inappropriate? You passing laws that affect my personal, private decisions just because you have a problem with women having sex for pleasure. Oooh. Women like sex, oh the horror the horror! Grow the fuck up, already.
Women are not stupid. We’re not going to miss who the real monster is here. Rush won’t change. Congress will.
And no, Mr. Paranoia, no one wants to blow up your fucking house. You’re SO not the worth the trouble. It was just another grifter in your fan club.
