Hey Rush: I’ve Got Some Satire I Wanna Sell You

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)

True irony.

  1. My apologies to the scads of comments (and commenters) I’ve had to delete. Negative comments are one thing, but let’s not pretend we live in a bubble… I’ve got your IP addresses, and some of the things that have been said are beyond the cusp of legally actionable… I don’t mean in civil court, I mean in criminal court.

    Let’s pretend for a second we’re all adults here, though plainly some of us might not be, you dummy doo-doo heads (and that’s how I put myself in their camp.)

    You think the author doesn’t know satire? I’ll tell you she’s among our biggest draws historically. You think you’re somehow smarter than her? I call bullshit, and I beg you to prove me wrong. We take submissions you know, even from readers we’ve never known before. Submit your story. You think this, or another story (health care, taxation, gay rights) could use your spin on things? Don’t just piss and moan, post a submission. Let’s see how the readers love, hate, or simply gloss over your piece.

    We really are friendly around here, I swear, especially to clever writers. We don’t just write from the left. Our writers span the spectrum, and we’ve got a staunch conservative on staff (surely you’ve noticed) who regularly posts his work, though he does so with less nonsensical anger, and more humorous insight.

    Got what it takes? Maybe so, maybe not, but until I see your article, I’m just going to assume you’re a random clown. By the way, I do love your floppy shoes. They go great with oxycontin.


  2. “Yes, Cam, and what part of Satire don’t you understand?”

    I understand it perfectly. This part of your piece indicates you don’t, however:

    –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.–

  3. Cam’s like you – dont understand satire. Just back stab people you dont like. You should keep that zip over your mouth zipped and engage brain before opening it. Rush meant the mistake to be reported that way. Boring Beckert with a axe to grind eh.

  4. I’m guessing not one person claiming this actually listened to his show when it went down. If they did, they’d know Limbaugh was not originally aware that the thesis bit was false, but that he warned his audience that it may be after being told that it couldn’t be verified.

    They’d also know that his “We know he didn’t say it, but that’s the way he thinks” line is a play on the media and left’s attacks on him using phony quotes and then defending them on those grounds.

    The joke’s on you.

  5. Actually, his twisted reasoning saying he can claim it as truth because Obama really thinks that way came back to bite him in the ass and that is a beautiful thing. If he’d a thought about it, maybe…nah, he’s a dumb ass.

  6. I don’t think Rush was tricked, I think he knowingly ran with a bad stoey because it fit his agenda.

    Bad research requires an apology. Twisting facts to fit an agenda doesn’t even warrant the thought of a mea culpaJ it was the plan all along.

  7. So Rusky does not fact check? Wow, what a surprised.

    After so many years of mis-labeling and mis-characterizing others he gets smacked down by the NFL “Not For Limbaugh”. Great job NFL.

  8. There is nothing funnier than a dumb-ass who
    thinks he’s a smart-ass. Rush showed the Rush
    critics who invented his made-up “racist quotes”
    how the same m.o. works on Obama made-up quotes.
