A Rush of Dittos
3 August 2003
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
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 . . .
