Limbaugh's Self-Liberating Lies

The Democratic victory scored on November 7 just keeps getting better and better.

What could have been better than having as the president's first order of business on 'the day after' the immediate jettisoning of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld?

How about Rush Limbaugh throwing in the towel?

Believe it. On his November 8 show, Limbaugh threw over the entire Republican party in one fell swoop. (see transcript)

Rush is "feeling liberated" after the demise of the permanent majority (uh, make that 6 years) on the day after the American people took their country back from the gnashing teeth of fascism.

Here's the key phrase from 'El Rushbo':
I'm liberated from having to constantly come in here every day and try to buck up a bunch of people who don't deserve it, to try to carry the water and make excuses for people who don't deserve it.

What an absolute weasel. Rush goes on trying to explain his remarkable epiphany with a shaky kind of justification that he was doing what he thought was best. Rush rationalizes that he supported the Republican agenda, backed Tom DeLay, defended Scooter Libby, promoted the war in Iraq, sold out to corporatism and pimped all the rest of the neo-conservative blather by gratuitously serving it up daily to his eager, drooling horde of Pavlovian listeners because he thought it was the right thing to do.

Rush obviously harbors a great deal of contempt for his listeners as he apparently thinks they're stupid enough to believe that he was doing the right thing at the same time the Republican ship of state was sinking. (Well, he's right, they're stupid enough, like lemmings.) Beyond that, he's betraying a nasty spate of disdain for Mr. Bush and the neocon gaggle of sick human-animal hybrids while trying to clear his name before being hauled off to the Hague.

Mr. Limbaugh is an out-and-out liar and once again shows a penchant for bad judgment. Nobody put a gun to his head (maybe somebody did) to "carry water" for anybody or any principle or any legislation. Saying that he promoted concepts which he himself did not trust or believe in and spewing them over the public airwaves labels him as nothing more and nothing less than a well-funded propagandist. He was given his talking points and marching orders and like the good soldier in the war on truth, he let fly with a daily diatribe filled with hate for the left and praise for the pseudo-right.

Now he commits the ultimate betrayal as the party falls from power.

Rush may be just the first of the disloyalists. These people who have abused the people, the laws and the constitution of our nation are jumping ship like the scared rats they are. They fear the light of justice, of truth. The fascist right has been defeated and the casualties are mounting.
