Yes, it’s true. That stuff can play hell with your eyesight. Just ask Rush Limbaugh.
The Pigman has made an ass of himself yet again, race-baiting Ohio Democratic Rep. Sherrod Brown in a totally ridiculous speculation as to why Brown’s opponent, fellow Democrat and Gulf War II veteran Paul Hackett, dropped out of the Ohio primary:
LIMBAUGH: Somebody explain to me what the Democrats are thinking here. Why do they think running a military candidate is gonna be credible anyway, given the posture that they have had the last four or five years? It was a four-point loss. That’s right — 52 to 48, Jean Schmidt beat Hackett, and they claimed it was a win. They were out there, “Oh, yeah, a big — oh, he got so close, this means it’s over for Bush. This means in the ’06 elections, that Bush is history.” Blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.
But I — with the attitudes that they have expressed about the military — they have regularly done their best to impugn the U.S. military. They — they’ve collaborated with the members of the media in their party to run stories about how military members are just a bunch a hayseed hicks who joined the military ’cause there’s no economic opportunity in America, ’cause the country sucks. They have — they have — they say they support the troops, but they don’t. And yet, they wanna bring out some — some — a bunch of guys in uniform to run.
Maybe somebody in the party has figured this out. And don’t forget, Sherrod Brown is black. There’s a racial component here, too. And now, the newspaper that I’m reading all this from is The New York Times, and they, of course, don’t mention that. But — you know, “Democratic leaders say that Representative Sherrod Brown, a seven-term incumbent from Avon, has a far better chance of toppling Senator DeWine than does the — Hackett.”
Yo, Rush…the reason the New York Times doesn’t mention that is because that reason doesn’t exist. Brown, his surname notwithstanding, is WHITE.
How embarrassing is it when the nation’s most influential political commentator (with self-styled “talent on loan from God”) fucks up on something so basic? When he can’t even be bothered to take a look for a simple picture of the man he’s talking about because he’s in such a hurry to make shit up about him?
And by the way, Rusty…what’s up with that “black” crack? Still smarting over Donovan McNabb, perhaps? I mean, we all know you love black people. Some of your best friends are, right? Well anyway, nice job of trying to spin it like your opponents are the racists, not you:
For those of you who continue to email me, even though I have made the correction — let me make the correction again. I erred when I said that Sherrod Brown is black. I’m confusing him with somebody with a similar name in the Democratic Party somewhere. But we have — we have corrected this, and I, you know, I’m not gonna apologize, ’cause I don’t think it’s an insult to be black. But — but I did err. He is — his is — he is — he is not black. He’s one of these white European descendents in Ohio. He’s the guy that — that the Democrats have kicked Paul Hackett out of the race for the Senate seat in Ohio against Mike DeWine. And it really boils down to a matter of money, plus they don’t like military guys in the, in the Democratic Party. But Sherrod — Sherrod Brown has much more money than Hackett could ever hope to raise. So that’s that.
Not that it’s fooling anyone. We can tell you’re just itching to call someone, anyone, a nigger–and you’re mad as hell because we liberals and leftists have made that impossible for you to do anymore without serious career repercussions.
And yeah, you just love them soldiers, don’t you, Rush. So much so that you couldn’t wait to haul out that cyst on your anus to avoid becoming one yourself. Just like all your fellow chickenhawks, you “support the troops” only by cheering cluelessly for a war that by all lights should be contrary to everything you conservatives profess to believe in. When it comes to supporting the real ones, though, you invariably fall on your big ol’ cyst-ridden ass. And then the Dems show you up by boasting the biggest list of military vets as candidates. What’s up with that?
Maybe it’s because your beliefs are, in fact, weak. Or maybe it’s all that Oxy you’ve been popping. Whatever it is, Rush–it’s time to get the bone out of your head before you go on the air.
