Rush Limbaugh, that ass!

From Rush, by way of our friends at U2log.com...

Quote:
"It was just a sight to behold. Here you have some of the most important people in the world going nuts over this brain-fried, maggot-infested, dope-smoking, long-haired, purple-finger nailed, multi-colored hair, FM type, who has to be laughing all the way back to California. I'm sure it's the same way Bono is laughing after convincing official world leaders he has something to offer to the Third World debt crisis."
What an ass!

the only thing Rush has to offer to the world is propoganda

I know everyone will say "oh well," and I guess there's nothing that can be done, but people have to understand that millions of people listen to him and take his word as the gospel

it's too bad every reaction Limbaugh has is just standard company policy

If Rush actually supported Bono, I'd be stunned. But I wouldn't expect someone so ridiculously conservative - to the point of being downright selfish - to back Bono.

Based on Rush's life, it appears he has paid a rather heavy price for his attitude (weight issues and now deafness). I guess there can be some justice in this world.

Rush is loosing credibity w/me lately.
It also makes me question views of his that I thought were accurate to take a differnt look at them now, based on these latest observations which are INACCURATE, about Bono.
Pisses me off.
One day I hope to make it thru as a caller on his show to have a dialouge w him to expose his ignorance.
To equate Ozzy w Bono is completely ludicrous.

Bono and Ali. The looks on their faces say it all!



What's wrong with Rush? He's really hit a new low.

Summer-
I think Rush was referring to Ozzy's recent visit to a fucntion where Pres. Bush acknowledged him, I think, may be wrong.
And then Rush, took liberty to compare Bono w Ozzy, correct me if I am wrong.

Diamond, I was thinking it HAD to be someone else he was thinking of and not Bono, but as much as Rush had been losing it lately I wouldn't put anything past him, I knew it didn't describe him but I thought he was losing it. Still it's rude about Ozzy, who is a cool dude. Rush has really taken a dive lately and maybe he should just give up. Okay I take it back (edit)

Anyhow~I hope you enjoyed the pic!

Look, I do not like Limbaugh. He is conservative to the point of fanaticism, he is EXTREMELY Biased, he rarely if ever gives credit to democrats or anyone that is not conservative, he is very narcisistic, self-absorbed, condescending, obnoxious, never admits when he is wrong, predictable, he despise liberals,....you get the point.

However, he is intelligent and he says many things that are true. What were his original thoughts on Bono? If anyone knows anything else that he has said about Bono, please fill me in.

I assume that he probably thinks that the leaders of the poor countries are to blame for not running their countries properly and these leaders will probably take the money that is funded to them through drop the debt and use it for themselves and not give much of it to the people that need it most.
Basically, I would bet that he feels that the people in these 3rd world nations are to blame for being is such dire straits. I know this is an assumption, but many conservative pundits have had the same opinion.

He does have a point there. However, his thinking is soooo myopic, that I wonder if he even cares for anyone but himself. What a shame that so many people like him(20 million a week!; personally, I think Bill Oreilly is much better and more fair and objective)

What would happen if I said something to the effect of "Well, JFK deserved the bullet to his head because he was a Democrat"? I'll tell you what would happen - people would be all over me like white on rice. And I would deserve it.
Surely you can't really think that his "attitude" brought on his deafness? Surely you don't think he deserves deafness just because he happens to disagree with you?

Negative attitudes certainly can adversely affect one's health--and a lot of people see Rush's attitudes as often very negative and judgmental. However, there are many wonderful people with positive and healthy attitudes who struggle with weight issues and other health problems, so it's a complicated issue--many factors play into it (I would suggest karma being the biggest, but that's a whole other topic and perhaps not one taken very seriously in this forum).

But in general, the way I interpret doctorwho's comment is that one's inner reality can determine/affect one's outer reality.

Umm-
I listen to Rush for one reason-
BALANCE.
This is the same reason I listen to NPR.
Now all of you-
SETTLE DOWN.

Thank you-
