My hand was finally operated on this morning so within a few weeks I should be back in the ring. Bone spurs were removed, grafts were taken and much pain was inflicted. But despite my current hydrocodone haze I’ve been lucid enough to find the hilarity in the right wing’s favorite thrice divorced, drug addicted, sex tourist, college drop-out radio host challenge the POTUS to a debate. In his radio booth, no less. Talk about wrestling with a pig…both figuratively and literally.
Limbaugh butt-boy Jonathan Martin hasn’t wasted any time in trying to portray the circus (one that Rush has participated in with ample vigor) as a devious plot orchestrated by Teh Librulz to paint Republicans as being beholden to the talk show host and to seal the deal, Martin cites an unnamed “third source” that corroborates his insinuations. Case closed in Fringe Land, apparently.
Missing from all of this, of course, is any commentary on how Limbaugh’s dominant influence has gone completely unchallenged by members of the Republican Party. In fact, those that have dared criticize Rush have been embarrassingly forced to publicly grovel and kiss the ring so if the party is indeed ideologically independent then they’ve done a very poor job of demonstrating it. If anything they’ve gone out of their way to prove the exact opposite. The only thing Teh Librul Media ™ has done is kick back and happily observe the farce taking place just as they were giddy with excitement anytime Karl Rove would characterize any disagreement with White House policy as treason. And does it need to be pointed out that this is the same media that was never averse to repeated Republican attempts to make the Democratic Party synonymous with not only mainstream figures like Michael Moore, but Osama bin Laden, the Taliban and Saddam Hussein?
