The Ultimate Overpaid Windbag

Ah, Rush Limbaugh. The ultimate example of an overpaid windbag. The biggest hypocrite on the planet. The man who spews hateful junk and his blind followers give him standing ovations.

Could he possibly have an ounce of class - or respect? By saying he wants President Obama to fail, he is really saying he wants our economy to continue in its downward spiral - and therefore for the American people to fail. Anyone with a brain - I realize I'm stretching it here - would voice his views a bit better. Perhaps by saying that he doesn't really agree with the current policies, but he does hope it will still be successful. It does, after all, not only effect the American economy but the global economy as well.

Limbaugh's has also said that liberals don't know the constitution and then followed that up by misquoting it himself. As posted on Daily Kos:

"So for sake of argument, let's say Rush Limbaugh misquoted the U.S. constitution. (He did, of course, saying the most famous phrase form the Declaration of Independence was in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution.)

Now, let's say that a reporter from the mainstream media noted Rush Limbaugh's error, and asked Ari Melber from The Nation to comment on it.

Does that reveal liberal media bias...or Rush Limbaugh's ignorance?

According the wingnut website NewsBusters, it's proof of a vast left-wing conspiracy."

Keep it up, Rush. The more people you alienate, the more extreme and disturbing your ideas are - and your total lack of editing anything that comes out of your mouth - the more you push people away. Soon you'll be left with just a few wingnuts that are so extreme even die hard Republicans will want nothing to do with you.

The most humorous part of all is his recent idea that he wants to appeal more to women. I don't think that is possible. But, he can't figure out why only thirty-seven percent of women like him (scary in itself). On Tennessee Guerilla Women, there are a few choice reminders on why women dislike him so much:
Why do women dislike Rush Limbaugh? Here's your answer Rush, in your own hateful words:

Sexist comments by Rush Limbaugh -- Hillary Rodham Clinton:

"She sounds like a screeching ex-wife. ... Men will know what I mean by this."

"Mrs Clinton Testicle Lockbox is big enough for the entire democratic hierarchy."

"Will this country want to actually watch a woman get older before their eyes on a daily basis?"

"I don't know why the B-I-itch is staying in."

Sexist comments by Rush Limbaugh -- Nancy Pelosi:

"[If Pelosi] wants fewer births, I have the way to do this and it won't require any contraception: You simply put pictures of Nancy Pelosi ... in every cheap motel room. ... That will keep birthrates down because that picture will keep a lot of things down."

Sexist comments by Rush Limbaugh -- Elizabeth Edwards:

"Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk."

More sexist comments by Rush Limbaugh:

"Some of these babes, I'm telling you, like the sexual harassment crowd. They're out there protesting what they actually wish would happen to them sometimes."
Yeah, all of us intelligent women out there appreciate his views. Of course there are more and of course he is a sexist pig - and not a very smart one at that. His comments on appearance alone - not to mention all the rest of it - when his own house is apparently void of any mirrors is disgusting. That this man has a voice that is heard so loudly is even more detestable.

But, even an overpaid windbag can ruin his own career. I just wish he would shut up and get off the radio and the high soapbox his ego put him on. Perhaps in the same mysterious way that Ann Coulter's jaw got wired shut his could be wired shut for awhile too. And, last but not least Rush, since any attractive, intelligent woman would run so fast from you that you would only see her tracks once the dust clears - good luck on those hot dates.
