I'm sorry, I'm still laughing over one Mr. Rush Limbaugh's assertion on Monday that President Barack Obama is "scared" of him.
The radio clown's comments come after the President denounced Limbaugh and his likes as obstacles to political unity, a comment he made after Rush exclaimed (before his aide wiped the drool from his chin with a Wetnap) "I want Obama to fail!"
"[Obama's] more frightened of me than he is of John Boehner, which doesn't say much for our party," Limbaugh said.
You're right Rush, it doesn't. Were it even true.
The notion that the Leader of the Free World is "frightened" by an increasingly delusional, ugly man who cowers behind a microphone in a studio ranting against his perceived (and fictional) War on America waged by the political left is hilarious.
This is a man who is fighting for relevance after the "values" and "principles" he steadfastly (obnoxiously and loudly) supported for the past eight years were swept away by a movement led by a man whom Limbaugh claimed was a closet socialist for more than a year. A man who spent the entire general election season serving as Sen. McCain's most fervent on-air proponent only to throw McCain under the bus after his loss, claiming he wasn't a "real Republican." He decided to also revoke Gen. Colin Powell's party identification due to his endorsement of Obama and after Powell derided the likes of Limbaugh on national television.
"Now this is the great unifier," Rush said with a dollop of his signature acidic, righteous sarcasm. "This is the man who’s going to unify everybody and usher in a new era of bipartisanship and love,"
By finally denouncing festering morons like you who offer no positive contribution to our political dialogue? Yeah, I'd say he's off to a good start there.
Rush sounds like a man who is refusing to come to terms with the fact that his own party is abandoning him, having finally realized his obsolescence.
The President's not afraid of you, Rush. He just made the mistake of lending you any semblance of relevance and credibility to your pathetic listeners by merely mentioning your name. I suppose I'm doing the same, but hell, I'm just too damn tickled by you. Perhaps the President is too!
Nope, the President's not afraid of you, Rush. And neither is anyone else. Just amused. But we've got Rock Of Love now, so you can pipe down.
