Chubbo a wimpo

Known drug-abuser and hypocrite, Rush Limbaugh, went all full-on hussy-fit when the chairman of the Republican party called him “an entertainer”. Republican Party Chairman, Michael Steele was responding to some of Rush’s usual babblings, calling his ranting “incendiary” and “ugly” (Rush had been saying that he hopes that President Obama fails in his plans to save the US economy, preventing pain and destitution for millions of US citizens across the United States. This must be that “compassionate Conservatism” we used to hear about. Good on ya, Rush). Rush of course could not let that stand and in a speech of Castro-esque length went on the attack. It was obvious, Rush said, that Chairman Steele must support the President and is therefore hoping that the President’s plan succeeds (it is apparent that Rush has some issues with the whole ‘supporting-the-President-thing. Democracy’s a bitch, ain’t it Rush?)

Now we get to the real unfortunate part of this whole deal. Instead of ignoring Rush, as the annoying gasbag that he is, Republican Chairman Steele apologized. I couldn’t believe it. The Chairman of the Republican party of the United States, a party that feels that it is capable of leading the last remaining superpower, is begging forgiveness from a guy who talks on the radio for a living. A guy who is so sure of himself and his beliefs that he has never quite had the guts to run for public office of any kind. A “family-values” kind of guy who is flat out incapable of maintaining a marriage. A guy who felt quite manly calling the 13-year-old daughter of President Clinton “the new White House dog” (more of those “family values” I guess). A guy who said, “if people are violating the law buy doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up”, yet when he was caught doing drugs, well, he was never “sent up”. And the Republican party apologized to this guy?!

I’m thinking that the ironically named Michael Steele should consider changing his last name to something a little more appropriate, like “Spineless” or maybe “Candy-ass”. Something along those lines. This situation is especially unfortunate as Michael Steele has run for and been elected to political office. He was elected Lieutenant-governor of Maryland, and was elected chairman of the Republican Party. In other words, he has “been there, done that” and for him to feel that he has to apologize to the likes of Rush Limbaugh is at best, disappointing.

What is even more disappointing is that while Mikey was busy licking Rush’s velcro sneakers, he also called Rush a “conservative leader”. Conservative loud-mouth, perhaps. The only thing that Rush Limbaugh is leader of is a bunch of people who actually call themselves “ditto-heads”. I mean, ditto-heads for Pete’s sake. Why think when you can just yelp out “ditto” every time your leader pushes the right button. This is what the conservative movement south of the 49th wants as a leader (or as followers if it comes to that). Yeah, good luck with that. It looks like the conservatives have even further to go to join the modern world than they think.

Anyway… Humouroceros

Great big Rush L. Doing his third favorite thing he does with his mouth. His second favorite thing he does with his mouth is talking.
