Being Putrid

Responding to Senator Kennedy's presence at the Health Care Summit in Washington, Rush Limbaugh, said on his show today, with inference to the senator's battle with brain cancer, "before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Care bill."

We should be celebrating when Rush is putrid. He is the face of the Republican Party and he is putrid to about 90% of the Ameican people.
Rush's toxicity will only strengthen Obama's hand.
What is interesting to me about Rush is that he seems to not care about anything - he's only in it for the money. His listenership has grown from 14 million last week to 24 million this week. He knows he is hurting Republicans and Conservatives in the eyes of the American Population, but he doesn't care as long as he can keep filling the tanks of his Gulfstream Jet. And I bet Barack and Michelle are laughing their heads off at all this behind closed doors. Did you ever notice how much Rush looks like a fat Karl Rove?

I must not be hardcore, because this I could NEVER do in the light of his words here.

"What is interesting to me about Rush is that he seems to not care about anything - he's only in it for the money."

This is the personality of addicts.

"He knows he is hurting Republicans and Conservatives in the eyes of the American Population, but he doesn't care as long as he can keep filling the tanks of his Gulfstream Jet."

Gluttony and grossness to the max.

"Did you ever notice how much Rush looks like a fat Karl Rove?"

Funny! I did have a photo of Limbaugh that looked just like the image above. But I just could not stomach it. So, I deleted it. Yuck!

Looking at the image of him and the putrid others are by far more spiritual than physical. People who say such things are despicable.

Only a few weeks ago, I hated Rush. The main reason I hated him was because I was under the mistaken impression that he had a large influence over a big segment of the population. He did at one time, but I hadn't realized how much things have changed. Only 10% of people under 40 like him. He is nothing but a mean rotten clown. A heartless clown, but still a clown. The fact that he can say something so heartless about Edward Kennedy is dispicable, but Ted is no fool - I bet it made him chuckle a bit because he knows what Rush is doing to the image of reactionaries. What does bother me is that Rush is popular enough to make more than 20 million dollars a year and his popularity is driven by hate - but this hate seems to be disapating - Obama is popular for the exact opposite reason - Obama (and his family) exudes love and Americans are responding in a big way.
Your point about addicts is dead on. He doesn't enjoy money, he is addicted to it. And Gluttonly - his is a pig and he actually resembles a pig.

You are a sharp and sensitive one, allen. You are funny too! I don’t think too many people can argue with the similarity in features with Limbaugh and a pig. It’s true. Funny! (Some people find pigs cute. I do, but not this likeness. Hmmm? Is there a difference between a pig and a hog?) I understand the feeling of hate with such despicable words. But I have never felt so. Limbaugh’s palpable hate and disgust for others is sad and sick.

I’m sure Kennedy might have chuckled a bit. But I do wonder about his family. No one wants to hear these things, not even Senator Kennedy himself. It's just so ugly! These kinds of words are also those of addicts. Addicts are often self-loathing, self-absorbed and openly hateful towards others. Their words are the inner spewing of a sick and disturbed person.

Addicts are addicted to various things and are often irrational and irascible. They do not care about others; they only care about getting the next fix. For Limbaugh, it could be a number of things, including money, fame, illegal drugs. His words and actions show that he is probably still using. Did you see him jumping around at CPAC? Wow! He needs help, probably many of his listeners too.

I loved the President and family juxtaposition.

Thank you.

You made me aware of something - I didn't actually hate Rush, I was afraid of him. I felt his sentiments might gain large popular support and turn the nation into a scary place. His latest antics reveal there is no need to fear him - And the bouncing around at CPAC could have been drug induced.

"I felt his sentiments might gain large popular support and turn the nation into a scary place."

This fear is well understood. It's great that Americans have largely rejected such divisive politics and hateful words. We will be a better nation yet.

Judith:

I fell out with Limbaugh back in '99 after JFK Jr. died in that horrible plane crash.

He is not qualified to be anyone's voice but his own.

Kennedy might survive Limbaugh, for all he knows!

One just does not make remarks like that about people.

CJ, my Michigan pal, I could not agree more. We really gotta catch up. Perhaps we can meet on the Diag. Remember those days? Wow! It's been a few years. I am happy you are here.
