Limbaugh Doubles Down On Teh Stupid

Filed in National by on January 15, 2010

Oh Rush Limbaugh, you never fail to disappoint (and I do mean disappoint). Limbaugh is still pushing some conspiracy theory that President Obama is going to steal money intended for victims of Haiti. A caller from my hometown challenges him and he manages to keep up the stupid, with a nice dose of misogyny thrown in.

Today, a woman named “April” from Paducah, KY called into Limbaugh’s show and asked where he got the “cojones” to make such statements. Limbaugh insisted that he never meant to discourage private donations to Haiti, but stood by his remarks that Obama will try to exploit the disaster for political gain:

RUSH: No, I’m not evading it at all. If I said it I meant to say it, and I do believe that everything is political to this president. Everything this president sees is a political opportunity, including Haiti, and he will use it to burnish his credentials with minorities in this country and around the world, and to accuse Republicans of having no compassion. […]

CALLER: [A]re you implying that the Huffington Post as the one and only resource that I [read]? I even watch Fox News once in a while.

RUSH: No, no, no, no, no. I’m not implying that. … What I’m illustrating here is that you’re a blockhead. What I’m illustrating here is that you’re a closed-minded bigot who is ill-informed. … And if you had listened to this program for a modicum of time you would know it. But instead you’re a blockhead. You’re mind is totally closed. You have tampons in your ears. Nothing is getting through other than the biased crap that you read.

Thank you, April from Paducah! The president will accuse Republicans of having no compassion, so don’t give money to Haiti? I’m trying to understand the logic here.

    Sory, but the real dope is The Delaware GOP and Tom Loss aka Tom Ross.

    He is shoving Anthony Wedo up our butts, you know the guy from Chadds Ford.

    I guess after Field Marshall Copeland proved to be a loser and Kovach is another Castle wimp with Lavelle being a total whiner Loss had to go with an out of stater.


    Why can’t they do anything right?

  2. Anthony Wedo for what? For the U.S. House?

    I love how Delaware Republicans insist that Castle is a bum because he’s “too moderate,” and anyone from the duPont wing of the party — the source of virtually all its money, except for what comes from Michelle Rollins — is mocked for having money, which of course most GOPers make no apologies about loving above everything but Jeebus.

    Who do they actually want? People like Son of Clatworthy, I suppose, who couldn’t even win in a Senate district created solely to house all the Republicans in northern NCCo? Mike Protack has been harping on this for years, with no more coherence. At least I understand Protack’s animosity — these folks have been telling him for years that he has no retail-politics ability, and he wants to get revenge. I can’t understand such complaints from anyone else.

    I met Mr. Wedo the other day in Dover, he introduced himself as “Tony”. Fascinating fellow, certainly has the look but I’d like to see a Congressman from Sussex or Kent without the fancy watch.

    There was another woman listening who gave him her card, when he put it in his wallet, I noticed he had a DE license, didnt look that new either.

    Let me get all this straight. Tom Ross is backing a guy named Wedo from Chadd’s Ford who wants to blow his life savings in a quixotic race against Carney…? Do I have that right?

  6. Pell says:

    I’d agree with that statement, but I think he’s a Greenville cat. Anyone met him?
