Rush Quote Of the Day

June 11, 2009

Wonder if this will appear in his $6 per month subscription transcript?  While diatribing against the 2,000 plus state requirements of insurance companies to pay for areas of treatment, Rush stumbled and mumbled when he came to alcohol and drug ammummmbbbll,mmbl.  Apparently his Oxycontin rehab did not include a section about forcing your mouth to say … “Drug Abuse!!!!” for that’s what Rush needs to do, loud and clear – Rush, you can say it…”Drug Abuse!!!!” Well, maybe not.

As Tony Soprano’s shrink diagnosed, “it’s not what you say that’s true, it’s what you don’t say.”

Skeezix

June 9, 2009

SkeezixBill O’Reilly of the Factor on Fox News won’t mention Keith Olbermann by name other than citing MSNBC as a ratings loser.  Olbermann on the other hand is way too anxious to name O’Reilly – but with cute and not-so-cute nicknames in a feud O’Reilly refuses to acknowledge, by name at least (see the start of this intermidable sentence).

In this approximate order, Olberman has come up with Bill-O and Orally.  Neither of these were completely effective and MSNBC probably had problems with the implications of Orally.

So now, Olbermann has taken to naming him Skeezix, a leading character in the Gasoline Alley (GA) comic strip.  Probably another interim name until he comes up with a good one and GA decides not to object, because they shouldn’t sue, and who would they sue, Keith or Fox News’ own Skeezix?

Rush’s Quote Of the Day (CLFOOP)

June 8, 2009

Just as I tuned in, Rush referenced his own rather sizeable radio audience – “cult-like followers of one personality” (or person, your choice, taxes not included) – oh wait a sec, he was referring to President Obama – my mistake, you can appreciate the confusion.

Rush’s Relativism

June 3, 2009

Interviewed by his lap dog, Fox’s Hannity, Rush Limbaugh critiqued Sotomayor for her alleged racism, something he said he’d “overlook” if she came out on his side of Roe V. Wade.

So what would be acceptable for a Roe V. Wade-certified Supreme Ct. candidate?  A belief in Communism?  A belief in the Nazi rants of Adolf Hitler? An abiding belief in UFOs?  Devil worship?  Since Rush is now an admitted relativist, what is his ultimate critereon?

Oh yeah, he tried to tie Colin Powell into rehab, something Rush must know a lot about from his first person experience.  Go Rush!  Open mouth, out comes the bile.rush_limbaugh

Welcome To the Fairness Doctrine and the End Of Syndicated Radio And the End Of All Our Remaining Freedoms As A Sign Of the Impending Doomsday And Don’t Forget the Devil Who Is Clearly Nancy Pelosi Who Wants This To Happen Because Localism Is the Root Of All Evil Pt. 1

June 1, 2009

With such a slow newsday – i.e., only one major airline crash and/or disappearance (Air France); only one assassinated doctor (Tiller of KS) and only one major U.S. corporation filing for bankruptcy (GM of Detroit), I was hungry for some real meat to chew on, but could find no good sob sister Octomom-style story save Susan Boyle’s latest meltdown…and the constant nagging question, with whom will she share her story – Larry King, Barbara Walters, Oprah or George Stepanopolous?

To while away the many hours  and maybe days to that great gettin’ up in the mornin’ when Boyle boils it down for the hungry American audience, I had to content myself with Mr. Nice Guy – you know, Lou Dobbs on CNN.  Just before the top of the hour he was interviewing an anti-fairness doctrine guy named Brian Jennings who wrote a book called – maybe I don’t have this 100% correct:  “Censorship: If The Fairness Doctrine Returns, I Might Have To Hurt A Doctor” – or something like that.

His thesis was (is) as follows:  the face of the new liberal congress, Nancy Pelosi – ooh, boo, hiss, the modern day manifestation of evil, can’t have a woman like her making decisions that influence our lives – the mere mention of her name makes me want to swallow whole whatever it is that Jennings is serving up – I digress…Pelosi’s evil intent is to require radio to do local programming instead of their God and FCC-given rights to recycle tired and miserable syndicated hack hosts like Michael Savage, Gordon Liddy, etc.

Jennings rightly complains that if radio stations were actually forced to serve the communities they are located in instead of running these bartered shows with third rate Rush wannabes, these stations would go dark and we’d be in danger of losing the voices of Savage, Liddy…and lawdy lawdy awmighty…maybe even Rush hissown self on loan from God.

So remember, if that radio station in your town just runs these syndicated shows and ignores anything local, it’s their right…after all, we gave them their licenses – no charge – power, influence and the right to add to the pile of political garbage that will make them enough $$$ to keep replicated whatever the hell it is that they do.

If they go dark, what will become of this generation of humanoid humorless hucksters and raving anti-Obama opinion spinners?  Dobbs won’t let them go dark on his watch…damn the localism…it’s the great enemy of the profit centered-radio business.

Jennings is in the midst of a Bible Belt book tour and back again through the wilds of Tennessee a bunch of times, where radio will crackle with out-of-town talk will pretend to be local and we like it that way.  Otherwise, it’s censorship…just ask Jennings, who works for Citadel – the  vendor of lot of this poisoned programming, but what’s wrong with a little conflict of interest with a Lou Dobbs stamp o’approval on the line.book_image
