What do you do when you’ve been outed on national radio trying once again to dish dirty lies about the President? If you’re Rush Limbaugh, you make up some half-assed excuse why you’re not a complete dumb ass for falling for yet another hoax. Seems Rush picked up on a story reporting that back in college, Obama wrote a thesis paper entitled “Aristocracy Reborn” that basically dissed the Constitution. NY Daily News has the whole story.
When confronted with the fact that the story on the thesis was a hoax and linked to a satire piece, Limbaugh continued with some really wacko reasoning as to why he can continue to air this story as truth. For simplicity sake, let’s call it the “even though it ain’t true, it’s probably really true” theory.
According to Rush, there are a lot of people attributing lies to him (Rush) that he knows he didn’t say. When confronted, the media says, “We know he didn’t say it, but that’s the way he thinks.” So with that reasoning, Rush is basically saying that he knows the story about Obama is fake, but it’s ok if he spreads it because he knows that is how Obama thinks.
Which leads me to this…those things the “people” are attributing to Rush, does he really think that way? I did some checking and here are a few choice pieces of satire that we can now believe to be the true way that Rush Limbaugh sees the world according to his bonehead analogy.
“Now, I’m not saying that Barack Obama’s a Muslim. But I do think he masterminded the 2004 Madrid terror attacks.”
“America should be terrified of Barack Obama’s skin color—whoops, I mean socialist agenda.”
“I wouldn’t advocate overthrowing the government, but I would certainly not object if some of my dumber listeners picked up arms and stormed the Capitol.” (Credit: “The Onion”)
Limbaugh reportedly replied…if he wants to suck on a 12-inch cigar, or a 12-lollipop, or a 12-inch whatever it is his American-born right (as opposed to left).
“…conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh denied being the leader of the Republican Party, instead declaring himself its “Demi-God”. Laughing maniacally, Limbaugh then demanded tribute in the form of human sacrifices, effective immediately…” (Credit: “The Spoof”)
“I am addicted to prescription pain medication.” (Credit: Rush Limbaugh)
