Quote from Rush Limbaugh's appearance on CBS evening news...

Thought this was an interesting quote from Rush Limbaugh during his guest appearance on the CBS Evening News last night:

"My friends, it's time to face a hard, cold fact. Militant Islam wants to kill us just because we're alive and don't believe as they do. They've been killing us for decades. So it's time to stop pretending these terrorist incidents are mere episodic events and face the reality that our way of life is in grave danger. This threat is not just going to go away because we choose to ignore it. Some say we should try diplomacy. Yeah, well, tell me, how do we negotiate with people whose starting point is our death? Ask them to wait for ten years before they kill us? When good negotiates with evil, evil will always win and peace follows victory, not words issued by diplomats. But some Americans, sadly, not interested in victory, and yet they want us to believe that their behavior is patriotic.

Well, it's not. When the critics are more interested in punishing this country over a few incidents at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay than they are in defeating those who want to kill us; when they seek to destroy a foreign surveillance program which is designed to identify those who want to kill us and how they intend to do it; when they want to grant those who want to kill us U.S. constitutional rights, I don't call that patriotic. Patriotism is rallying behind the country, regardless of party affiliation to defeat Islamofascism. Patriotism is supporting our troops in the battlefield, not undermining the mission and morale. Let there be no doubt about this: America will prevail. We're the same country that survived a bloody civil war, defeated the Nazis and the Soviets. Each generation has a responsibility to the next, our generation will not disappoint."

Rush is following the Rove Re-Election 2006 Strategy perfectly:

vote for Bush, or you'll be killed by the terrorists.

and ignore that Civil War we started in Iraq. and we need Father Bush, the Great Leader (who is Great because he leads, and Leads because he is great), to protect us, the vulnerable flock. he must torture them to save us, and if we object, then we'll have been complicit in whenever the next attack occurs.

the political manipulation of 9-11 is astonishing.

yes and no.

yes, "islamic fascists" (which is intentionally fast and loose and vague and shadowy) do want to kill us.

no, Bush and Co. are not the only ones capable of protecting the country, and there are very solid arguments to say that they have made us less safe.

torturing people, and holding them indefinitely without any charges, and demanding that military tribunals be set up so that, as Lindsay Ghram said:

[q]''Trust us, you’re guilty, we’re going to execute you, but we can’t tell you why'? That's not going to pass muster; that's not necessary.'[/q]

... all this makes us less safe. and defaces us as a nation. and is designed to scare people into voting for the Great Leader.

and there's no question that we're seeing the most egregious politicization of 9-11 yet, now 5 years away from the day.

I don't find anything in what Rush said about Bush being the only one able to protect us.

He's not entirely wrong. But a lot of good folks out there are naive enough to think what he's saying has bearing on the Iraq debate. It's doesn't.

Both left and right are deadly serious about confronting terrorism. Some think we should simply obey the law as we do it; others think that's not as important.

But I think most now agree that Iraq is a dangerous distraction from and a strain on the resources needed to effectively fight a war on terror.

I doubt Rush can be objective enough to see it that way.

No amount of hypocrisy, misanthropy or dismissal of law will change the minds of those who love Rush. Personally, I'd sooner chew on glass than listen to him.

The way he was twitching and tweaking

I'd say he was on those little blue pills
he smuggled in through the airport.

I guess we know why Katie didn't allow him in the studio,
but had him send it in on tape.

but Rush is a strong supporter of abstinence-only education, so the only logical thing is to assume that he doesn't believe in sex before marriage, after all, sexual intercourse within the context of a marriage between a man and a woman is the expected standard of human sexuality.

Rush is now divorced -- why on earth does he need Viagra?

and, at the very least, if he is a gigantic raging hypocrite, did he have at least one condom for each blue pill?

(though, if the commericals are to be believed, one pill will last through several condoms ... 36 hours indeed)

He's 100% right.

It's shameful to rile the public with anti-American sentiment in a time of war. It's shameful to block anti-terror legislation that will protect Americans and assist us in hunting down our enemies.

The Bush Administration's tactics against treasonist liberties are nothing compared to Lincoln or Roosevelt's tactics. Lincoln threw the Copperheads of his time in boats and prisons until the war was over. Roosevelt imposed curfews on citizens with Japanese ancestry.
