In reviewing, for my amusement, the output of various doctrinaire loonies, I often come across Michael Moore and Rush Limbaugh. And then I experienced an epiphany.
Michael Moore may very well be Rush Limbaugh’s love child! Look at the two of them (okay, so don’t look too long). They use identical methods, have identical respect for truth, and have identical ethical standards when it comes to letting facts get in the way of their dogmas.
Likewise, both have their unthinking, rather dimwitted rah-rah sections, who are quite happy to viciously attack anyone who dares question their demigod’s unique spin on “reality”, and both of these rah-rah sections like to proclaim at great length how intelligent they and their respective shibboleths are and how stupid those who disagree with them must be.
And there’s more. They both have equally fine taste in fashion and public civility, the only difference, as in their public proclamations, being the direction of their spin on those matters.
Could I be onto something?
Perhaps Moore is actually Limbaugh’s secret conjoined twin, separated at birth and then cunningly frozen for decades to throw investigators off the trail.
