So, nothing about those liberal assholes that need called out, but no one can be bothered?

Because I'm thinking of "one".

Hey, maybe his long term Oxycontin addiction has rendered opiate painkillers ineffective. That would be something.

Get your facts right Bill Cosby was drugging and raping women.

Ted Bundy once worked a suicide prevention hotline. Maybe that excuses his torturing all those women to death.

I've heard that John Wayne Gacy was a pretty popular party clown... When he wasn't murdering people.

Limbaugh, recipient of the Medal of Freedom and sick man who deserves our sympathy, has weighed in on the Democratic primary with this astute commentary:
Quote:
Limbaugh said the Democratic establishment is faced with some “hard cold truths” about the state of the race over the fact that democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the frontrunner, followed closely by Buttigieg, which Limbaugh pronounced as “Booty-gieg.”

“So you’re faced with dyed-in-the-wool socialist who’s not even a Democrat,” the conservative talker declared. “A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages. Can you see Trump have fun with that?”

<snip>

“They’re sitting there and they’re looking at Mayor Pete, 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage,” continued Limbaugh, who has previously declared that heterosexuals are “under assault.”

“And they’re saying, ‘OK, how’s this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What’s going to happen there?’”

“And they got to be looking at that, and they’ve got to be saying, that despite all the great progress and despite all the great wokeness, and despite all the great ground that's been covered, America's still not ready to elect a gay guy kissing his husband on the debate stage president,’ he added. “They have to be saying this, don’t they?!”

Limbaugh concluded his tirade by saying that some Democrats may “think that is the ticket” and that they need to get a “gay guy kissing his husband on stage” to “ram it down Trump’s throat.”

Ol' Rush seems to be particularly interested in the fact that Buttigieg kisses his husband.

Yep, Rush Limbaugh is a national treasure.

They can do talk radio fine; the liberal talk show hosts were pretty much all fired and replaced with syndicated right wing shows as part of the nationwide corporate effort to eliminate all dissenting voices.

Liberals can't even succeed on Youtube. The top talkers are all conservative like Joe Rogen. That's why they're always crying to deplatform conservative because they can't compete. Pimple popping videos are more interesting that the average liberal diatribe.

He endorsed Bernie Sanders. Between you, me, and Rogan, at least one of us doesn't know what a conservative is.

Maybe that was part of it, but the main reason is that there's a market for right-wing hatred on the radio. Lots of people wanted (and still want!) to hear racist, misogynist assholes like Limbaugh and Hannity spout bullshit on their radios. There was no similar mass market for left-wing bloviation -- if there was, then we'd see lots of successful national left-wing bloviator assholes. They're not there, because liberals aren't particularly interested in such a thing.

Rogan thinks Obama is a Kenyan Muslim and is your basic whitebread meathead sexist transphobic cumsock asshole.

Get fucked with this broish pretense.

Yep, Rush Limbaugh is a national treasure.
I was an interrogator in Iraq . I'm proud to say I never so much as raised my voice to a subject, much less a hand----and that was to yell at a fifteen-year-old before handing him off to his mom, for worrying the everliving fuck out of her and his dad, who was quite possibly the sweetest man I have ever met. They slaughtered a lamb for a bunch of us troops, American, Polish, and Ukrainian, for keeping that dipshit kid out of this prison near Baghdad the infantry was sending all their captives to. It wasn't till June that we heard the name. Abu Ghraib.

We had to memorize parts of the Geneva Conventions to graduate interrogator school.

I would happily violate those standards if I could just get Limbaugh to feel and understand the lives and emotions of those he has abused over the years. Too many to count. Twelve-year-old Chelsea Clinton. Sandra Fluke, testifying before Congress how birth control pills prevent or treat various uterine conditions. Hell, any of the liberal he has bitterly, viciously slandered over the years, including Hillary, because she's a cunt, right?

I'm a bit drunk because it's that or being blinded by another headache that dear Rush says doesn't happen because vagina. Maybe if people had given a shit when his targets were only women, it wouldn't have gotten this far, but nobody gives a shit.

Supporting Sanders doesn't make him a conservative, but if he for instance also supported several mainstream Democratic propositions or libertarian-liberal positions such as drug legalization, then I'd say he's neither conservative nor liberal, which would be good enough for refuting the position being refuted.

But I'd agree that simply supporting Bernie would not be enough. I don't care to learn enough about JR to research his views to see if this is true.

Rogan straight up tweeted how "the evidence was persuasive" or some such shit that Obama was a Kenyan Muslim, so right there you know he's a fucking moron who takes Reichwing bullshit seriously, which means he's stupid and evil.

He's posted transphobic shit, said that watching "Planet of the Apes" in a black neighborhood was like "going to Africa", called a transwoman "a fucking man", has called people "dumb cunt" and "fucking faggot"----notably, the Dope denizens who are inclined to that kind of thing never try to rehabilitate homophobic slurs, only the misogynist ones---, plus he's hosted Reichwing misogynists like Milo and Jordan Peterson.

Being a libertarian is meaningless at best: he voted for Johnson, who is anti-choice, so fuck that "he doesn't hate women" defense.

Also? 91% of his guests are male.

He spends A LOT of time spouting Reichwing edgelord MRA bullshit, which makes him sound like the worst thirteen-year-old future school shooter incel you can imagine in an aging fortysomething body. His midlife crisis ain't gonna be pretty.

Being in favor of free weed and health care does not erase what a bigot he is. He's about one bad divorce and a sexual harassment lawsuit away from going full redhat, but Bernie sure likes to suck up to assholes----Trumpies, anti-choicers, "people who aren't comfortable voting for black people", and Tulsi Gabbard.

Huh. I'd heard of Rogan but never paid any attention to him. I saw he'd endorsed Sanders and assumed that at least meant he wasn't a conservative ideologue (which maybe he isn't, as much as a garden variety asshole). I should have stayed silent on the topic. Mea culpa.

.
Considering that Drugbo's fourth Trophy Wife won't even live in the same house as him (they have adjoining houses. But definitely separate) this is hilarious.

There's no such thing as peak slimebucketry with Rush, is there? He just keeps going from slimier to even slimier.

But things have changed a lot in recent years, and I wonder if crapping on someone strictly for being gay is too much for even some of Rush's core audience nowadays.
