Rush vs. Bono

(10-12-2005) Rush vs. Bono -- Salon.com*
Rush vs. Bono

Rush Limbaugh seems intent on trying to bring down Bono: On his show on Tuesday, he launched into a long tirade against the new übersexuals, including Bono, and then started claiming that the U2 frontman has a mistress, despite being married for 23 years. When a caller asked how Rush could possibly know this, he said, "You people are just going to have to trust me on this."

--Salon.com

What is everyone's take on this? Other than Rush Limbaugh should go pop some more pills and shut the fuck up.

Here's another quote:

HUGHES: What women really want is the great guy. If you read what the ubermale [sexual?] is really supposed to be, I think Bono fits, because not only is he madly in love with his wife, capable to keep up a commitment, he's passionate about causes. He's outside of himself.

RUSH: He also has a mistress! They conveniently leave that out. That his wife knows about. She's cool with it. I guess that's part of being an ubersexual. Okay, and the final bite, Roker said (interruption). It doesn't (interruption). No, no, no. The ubersexual definition does not include having mistresses. That's the point. Bono snuck one in on them and they don't know about it, or they do and they're ignoring it.

"You people are just going to have to trust me on this."

a.k.a, "I have no proof but just feel like making some uninventive bullshit remark just because I can"

Funny, b/c people have posted the same thing on the guestbook of my website (see sig), and "swear it's true!" but won't offer ANY sort of proof.

yeah....right

I always delete those posts.

Based on the different descriptions and dozens of examples that don't seem to have anything in common (Donald Trump - Jude Law), as far as I can tell, it's just another word for a heterosexual man

Uber, in German means over (part of my limited vocabulary, uber die Bruke meaning over the bridge)...
Over sexual...? - Sounds a bit like jealousy... or maybe Rush is just a nutcase.

I'm confused..why was this topic closed in PLEBA because it violates the FAQ, but not in here?

It's posted in the news forum too
