A Rush of Dittos
by Sartre
3 August 2003The Thinker

Rush has aged into a reliable mouthpiece for the Bush agenda.  His brand of phony conservative politics has decayed into a defense of a compassionate globalism.

Are you a fan of EIB? Do you still think that the cutting edge is heard coast to coast, on the syndicated phenomenon, that boasts - the greatest radio show on earth! Rush Limbaugh went national during the last days of the Ronald Reagan administration. Those who recall that bold and fresh attitude will remember that Rush was radical. Reminiscent of the early work of Larry King out of Miami, the broadcast hit at the underbelly of the ruling class. One even heard carping at George H.W. Bush back in those days, when the principles of the Gipper began to fade. As the Clintons took power, the show swung into high gear. And as Rush’s web site states: “The rest is history.”

If you have any doubts about his talent, he will set the record straight - Rush is Right! But is he really conservative? Bear in mind, this is the same guy that stated in his Original 35 Undeniable Truths of Life, #11 - Neither the US, nor anyone else, imposes freedom on the peoples of other nations.

Now we will be treated to the next evolution of the pedagogue from Cape Girardeau. "Starting on September 4th, the following Sunday, and every Sunday throughout the season all the way to the Super Bowl I will be appearing with Chris Berman, Steve Young, Tom Jackson, Michael Irvin and the whole cast at ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown." Well, we wish Rush all success in his actual passion - Football. His unrivaled entertainment style needs a break from politics. Thank our lucky stars that Rush didn’t seek to replace recently resigned GOP chairman, Jack Walters, his fellow Show-Me-Stater.. Can you imagine the master cheerleader rebuking the closing statement from Mr. Walters: "I grieve for our nation, and the untold suffering that will be wrought. As history has shown, you can possess the greatest armaments in the world, but if your cause and motives are not right, only catastrophe will result."

Expertise in politics is not synonymous with blind faith regarding partisan policy. Fidelity to principle is seldom demonstrated within any party regime. An authentic conservative philosophy has been forsaken, as Rush attributes faultlessness to a failed GOP administration. Common sense demands consistency with fundamental values. Rush has aged into a reliable mouthpiece for the Bush agenda. Republicanism under the madness of King George has succumbed to the nihilism of the NeoCon betrayal mindset. Limbaugh has become an aspirant Limey. His brand of phony conservative politics has decayed into a defense of a compassionate globalism. This modern day Tory pays homage to the Crown of an American empire. He now seduces his audience with appeals of impulsive patriotism, while abandoning even the pretension of limited government.

Since the former firebrand values his media crown more than veracity, his significance is reduced to sport. No question ESPN’s gain will divert from the culpability that sober folks will hold for the neo Rush. He will charm, beguile and tell us of the greatest of those Steeler teams. Any relaxation from being a Bush butt boy will be refreshing.

The only Ditto left to agree with is a profound disgust for all pinko DemocRATS. Too bad that Rush lacks the courage to admit that the RepubliCANTS are unable and unwilling to restore an actual Republic. Where is the commitment for reform in his message? Where are all those parodies that exposed the underbelly of the central government beast that had the twin profiles of a Klinton head? Surely, no sane person would conclude that the Feds have championed individual Liberty under Dubya’s GOP? Rush acts like it’s GOD’s Only Party . . .

The sonorousness of Rush has become a pompous and pretentious farce. He wants the status of a sage and the bust appearance of a Pallas. However; his parroting of a benign New World Order, in red, white and blue hues; resembles the ill-omen of a raven.

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted- nevermore!
 -- Edgar Allan Poe

Let’s hope that the NFL will beat some sense back into the man. Concussions go with the game. What’s unusual is when a jarhead seeks relief from his own idiocy in the company of steroid induced warriors. The Super Bowl of politics reflects a staged march down the road of perdition. Rush Limbaugh is goose-stepping with the skull and bones fuhrer. This parade is foreign and is hostile towards true American conservative traditional values and heritage. Keep in focus, Rush’s Truth #28 - Abraham Lincoln saved this nation. Any person who believes that, deserves to be treated with proper regard - NEVERMORE . . .
