A satire blog posted an entry earlier this week which purported to be the text of a Rush Limbaugh broadcast. That it was waaaaaaaaay over the top goes without saying. That it wasn’t really that hard to believe that the head ditto head would actually say these things is really kind of scary.

I mean it’s not like he doesn't have a history of  fouling the airwaves with broadcasts that were and are insulting, misanthropic, misogynistic, just this side of outright lies and generally resembling something you’d scrape off the bottom of your shoe at the earliest possible opportunity.

That he still has enough listeners to be on the air is really scary. I know of at least two people in the office where I used to work who pretty much listened to the Great L and over the top Beck almost exclusively. And their political comments reflected it.

Now if you can stand reading really outrageous posts that are true. Go here. I will admit that their headlines can be over the top but you have to read this stuff to believe it. And even then I pinch myself. Over and over and over… That these “persons” have any kind of audience is freakin’ unbelievable.

And a personal observation.  If you do go to the Right Wing Watch site, why would anyone give a shit what anyone from the Dugger family says about anything? Near as I can tell their ONLY claim to fame is being able to have lots of kids and parley it into a reality TV show. Which as Lisa pointed out the other day doesn’t say much for the intelligence of the average viewer. I have yet to reality and I don’t plan on starting anytime soon. My to be read stack of books is as long as my arm and isn’t getting any smaller. 

I think the last time Pat Buchanan was right about anything was when he was working for Tricky Dick Nixon. I think. Oh, great somebody from Faux News, That's a really big surprise. Unfortunately they are out there and the only defense we have is making sure we know what they're saying. Yuck, I think I need a shower.

Like I commented on Facebook, with Limbaugh's record for outrageous utterances, it wasn't a very great stretch to believe that "satirical" piece. He makes me gag.
