It’s not Right vs. Left,
It’s Right vs. Wrong!
I am not one to pass judgment on a person, especially someone I do not personally know. However, when that individual is Rush Hudson Limbaugh III, he leaves me no choice, but to expose him for what he truly is, a hack – a dope – and a pure menace to society. More on that in “my comments” below.
For the sake of bogging down this blog and slowing down your reading, I have taken the liberty to summarize my research of Rush Limbaugh’s unstable career and his unpredictable and certainly always dysfunctional personal life. Any findings here within can be verified through a quick internet search. In addition, I have added a few internet sites of interest to the subject of this article at the conclusion.
The Life of a Ridiculous Nincompoop
I look at his life accomplishments and short of riding the coattails of his family’s achievements, Rush Limbaugh, the charismatic chauvinist conservative republican has managed to be nothing more than a failure at virtually everything he has had a hand in – as his mother so eloquently put it, “he flunked everything” (1). His grandfather a lawyer then a judge, father, and brother both lawyers, his uncle and cousins both lawyers and then judges, but Rush, a radio hack!
Rush Limbaugh attended Southeast Missouri State University and attended for two semesters until he found college life was just too damn hard for him. He could not keep up academically and he dropped out of college before they expelled him based on his failing grades.
Even though Rush Limbaugh was born on January 12, 1951, he was able to avoid the Vietnam War Draft Lottery unscathed as he allegedly had a “pilonidal cyst”, which was an abscess, or boil, on his buttocks. That’s right folks, a boil on his ass kept him from fighting for his country and in turn, he became an abscess on the buttocks of society!
Rush Limbaugh’s love life was afflicted. The Methodist man has been married four times, his first marriage lasted three years, the second seven years, his third marriage ten years, however they “agreed to an amicable divorce” after he began a relationship three months before the divorce, and his fourth marriage, which he entered in 2010 remains to be tested, I mean seen! On a positive note, let’s be thankful this man has never procreated!
On October 3, 2003, in a black market drug ring crack down, it was disclosed that Rush Limbaugh had forged prescriptions for oxycodone and hydrocodone, both highly addictive narcotics. Shortly after, Rush Limbaugh went public with the first of an avalanche of apologetic attempts for his inappropriate behavior. However, had you or I been guilty of forging prescriptions, we would have surely seen the inside of a jail cell. Rush Limbaugh, the righteous stand-up individual he is, the one who forever dictates justice and moral virtue, acquiesced to enter an inpatient treatment program in an impoverished hospital full of the most odious drug abusers in the remote outskirts of… Hawaii (2). Yes that’s right poverty-stricken, hard-nosed Hawaii (detect the sarcasm). Oh, poor Rush Limbaugh!
The Blistering Career of an Abscess
Rush Limbaugh’s so-called professional career began in the 1970’s. He was a disc jockey on AM radio in Pittsburg hiding under the name of “Jeff Christie”, my guess is Rush Limbaugh was not “cool” enough, gee I wonder why! Guess what? He was fired. The station told him, he was “a no-talent and would never make it on radio.” He left radio and became a Director of Promotions (office geek) for the Kansas City Royals MLB baseball team. No slouch to making friend in high places, Limbaugh soon became best buds with the KC Royals owner and multimillionaire George Brett.
Missing radio air time, in 1984 Limbaugh headed to California where he was once again voicing his opinions on air. This was but a stepping-stone to the Big Apple. Still hitting the AM radio waves Limbaugh received his largest acclaim for his opposing views of the 1988 Democratic National Convention held just weeks before the Republican National Convention. The radio station in New York remains Limbaugh’s flagship station today, although he broadcast from his home in West Palm Beach Florida.
Limbaugh’s weekly broadcasts now include FM radio because of FAA limits, and he has at various times attempted syndicated television The Rush Limbaugh Show, but he has failed with dramatic results. Reportedly, in The Drudge Report, Rush Limbaugh has a contractual radio contract worth over $400 million dollars, which extends his radio agreement through the year 2016.
The Jackass Comments
It is no secret that Rush Limbaugh’s big mouth has caused him, and innocent bystanders, problems. He believes he is the voice of reason – the popular opinion of the people’s choice and the people are not in the position the he is in, so he must share their opinion on their behalf through his uneducated and bias gullet.
The heated controversy over Limbaugh began in 2003, while he took on another job as a professional football commentator with ESPN. Limbaugh made racial references to quarterback Donovan McNabb during a game, and at the same time, he implied African-American players prejudice the NFL, “I don’t think [McNabb’s] been that good from the get-go. I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.”
In 2004, the results of a survey were made public. The Armed Forces asserted a poll was taken reflecting Rush Limbaugh’s radio program was the number one requested program desired by members of the Armed Forces; Rush Limbaugh shared the results on air during his radio program. Lund Media Research conducted a follow-up “legitimate” survey only to find out the poll was mistaken. It appeared to be, “coherence or otherwise manufactured and the information was false by a very large margin.”
The offenses by Limbaugh continued. In 2006, Michael J. Fox appeared in a commercial for stem cell research. Limbaugh responded on air saying, “He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. 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.” Of course, we all know Michael J. Fox suffers from Parkinson’s disease and the effects of the disease are what we all saw on the commercial.
Limbaugh’s big mouth is not restricted to the disabled or to defaming our Constitution creating a bogus survey involving the Nation’s finest. No, he takes it all the way to the White House. In 2007, Limbaugh referred to President Barak Obama, then Senator Obama as the “Magic Negro”, then he played a parody on his radio program by Paul Shanklin titled “Barak the Magic Negro”, a parody of the song Puff the Magic Dragon.
In 2007, during a Rush Limbaugh radio show, a caller brought up soldiers who criticize the war. Rush Limbaugh who, if you recall, could not be bothered with the draft because he had a wart on his ass, referred to any soldier who criticizes the war as a, “phony soldier (3).”
During President Obama’s Presidential Campaign, Limbaugh asked his listeners to write in. He said to, “submit 400 words on your hope for the Obama presidency”, then he recanted and stated, “I don’t need 400 words, I need only four. ‘I hope he fails’.” He continued stating, “I hope liberalism fails.”
Just recently, February 29, 2012, Limbaugh commented on Sandra Fluke the law student at Georgetown University. Fluke who takes a pro-active stance on the position of birth control as it aids her in the healing of a debilitating medical condition, was labeled by Limbaugh as a “slut”, “prostitute” and round-healed.” This all took place on air as Limbaugh questioned her about her parent’s belief about birth control and he wanted to know if her, “parents were proud of her for supporting the government’s ruling that religious affiliated institution should provide health insurance plans that include contraception.” Limbaugh repeated his on air humiliation of Fluke over several days, addressing, “Fluke and the rest of you feminazis… make a sex tape in exchange for contraceptive funding, along with offering to buy the women of Georgetown University “as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want.” Limbaugh made a so-called apology saying, “I chose the wrong words… I acted too much like the leftist [liberals] who despise me. I descended to their level . It’s what we’ve come to expect from them…”
How an individual like Rush Limbaugh with no college degree and no professional training can become a disc jockey, then become a Director of Promotions of an MLB team, then back to spending a profitable career in radio, which he was able to do while dealing with three failed marriages and a fourth marriage which is fairly new, and getting busted in a drug sting operation, going through inpatient treatment for drug abuse, then author books, sign $400+ million dollar contracts, is an anomaly. It goes to prove, it is not what you know, how well you do what you know, but whose horn you blow and make damn sure you blow it well and it puts a real big smile on the horn financier’s face(s).
Rush Limbaugh draws distinct conservative lines for gender, race, religion, politics, and life in general. His off-the-wall comments and boisterous demeanor have earned him a place in history. How this no-talent uneducated hack became a voice for the conservative republican is a mystery. His antics are not new. He has been blathering idiocracy from the beginning of his career. The only reason Limbaugh’s comments are damaging and “top news” is as a society some of us are drawn to the opposition, we want to know what the other person is saying and before you know it Limbaugh has you hooked. Then there is the sensitivity issue. As a society, it was not until the late 90’s and early 2000’s, when we decided to become intolerant to that which is not politically correct.
In the 60’s the soldiers returning from Vietnam were spat on and called “Baby killers.” In 2007 do not suggest any soldier is a, “phony soldier.” In the 70’s I had a teacher and a school principal ask my parents if I were a “retard”, in 2006 do not make fun of an individual’s disabilities, especially if that someone was Michael J. Fox. It is obvious Limbaugh has been the person he has always been, the world has simply changed around him.
Rush, it’s your mouth. You don’t know when to shut up and what’s more you’re stuck in the 70’s. You are a class-A jagaballs! There is no room in today’s world for a closed-minded open-mouthed uneducated anal-retentive jackass like you. We do not pardon your arrogance, your lack of humility, your transparent ego, your greed, your opinion, or the cow plops, which you excrete from your all too copious oral orifice. If any of these words befuddle you Rush, because they are too intellectual and you have demonstrated you are limited, grab a dictionary, if you continue to have difficulty, you may want to rethink the decision of dropping out of school.
