roadbikeRob saidI agree with you 100% about Rush Limbaugh. He is an ignorant, vindictive, hateful scumbag. However, I am not going to wish any ill will or death upon this irrelevant piece of shit of a man because what he says about other people is going to cost him very dearly in the long run. I was especially appalled by his heartless, hateful remarks about the people of Haiti. Keep in mind what comes around, goes around and Mr. Limbaugh is going to get what he rightfully deserves. I condemn Rush Limbaugh for his horrible comments but unfortunately he is entitled to his opinions as wrong as they are.
But you are so wrong. RJ Republicans will defend him, make excuses for him, rationalize him. Just wait & see. He is their Republican spokesperson, as their Party leadership has proven.
Now some of them here will attack me, they will attack you, they will attack the rest of us, they will attempt to change the subject, as Republicans always do, often with great political success.
Or they will take their favorite fallback position: "they all do it." Well, no, they don't all do it, Republicans -- YOU do it, YOU are the problem here, not the US political system.
YOU have caused the bipartisanship, declaring yourselves the Party of No, YOU are the ones who have declared that you want President Obama to fail, regardless of the harm that will cause the US in this time of crisis, YOU are the ones who have aligned yourselves with Christian fundamentalists and extreme right-wingers, who come to town meetings with assault weapons and hateful intimidation.
Defend yourselves if you dare, your record is public, your reactionary rhetoric putrid. You have no ideas but opposition and hatred, no direction but backwards racism & bigotry.
It bothers me most that I see again the same battles being fought that I thought were won nearly 50 years ago. I guess evil never sleeps, always ready to spring back to life when people of good intention let down their guard. We often assume the history of the human race is continuous advancement -- the US Republican Party proves how evil is eternal, and ever watchful for weakness.
