Limbaugh : If your wife or daughter are on birth control, they should be required to post videos online having sex so we can watch

I’m not sure if, even if judged during the Jurrassic Age when Brontasaurus  Apatosaurus roamed the earth, Rush Limbaugh wouldn’t be the biggest asshole on the planet.
U.S. News – Limbaugh: Contraception advocate should post online sex videos 

edit: (thanks Daniel) :

Apatosaurus (play/əˌpætɵˈsɔrəs/), also known by the popular but scientifically redundant synonymBrontosaurus, is a genus of sauropoddinosaur that lived from about 154 to 150 million years ago, during the JurassicPeriod (Kimmeridgian and early Tithonian ages).[1] It was one of the largest land animals that ever existed, with an average length of 23 m (75 ft) and a mass of at least 23 metric tons (25 short tons)

I was being scientifically rudundant.  Oh..and I was trying to type “period” on my phone but “age” came out cleaner on the third try.

Now…it does look like being 75 feet long..vs a 6 foot man…and if you’ve ever seen the “goatse” picture (please: DO NOT GOOGLE THIS)…mulitply that picture (standing in for the largest asshole other than Rush Limbaugh)…and we guess Apatosaurus had a 10 foot wide (possibly) asshole.  So…to not be scientifically inaccurate, which I strive to (not) be…Rush Limbaugh is a huuuge asshole.

But there may, just may, have, at some time, been a bigger asshole on the planet.


Panic of the Plutocrats

And then there’s the campaign of character assassination against Elizabeth Warren, the financial reformer now running for the Senate in Massachusetts. Not long ago a YouTube video of Ms. Warren making an eloquent, down-to-earth case for taxes on the rich went viral. Nothing about what she said was radical — it was no more than a modern riff on Oliver Wendell Holmes’s famous dictum that “Taxes are what we pay for civilized society.”

But listening to the reliable defenders of the wealthy, you’d think that Ms. Warren was the second coming of Leon Trotsky. George Will declared that she has a “collectivist agenda,” that she believes that “individualism is a chimera.” And Rush Limbaugh called her “a parasite who hates her host. Willing to destroy the host while she sucks the life out of it.”

What’s going on here? The answer, surely, is that Wall Street’s Masters of the Universe realize, deep down, how morally indefensible their position is. They’re not John Galt; they’re not even Steve Jobs. They’re people who got rich by peddling complex financial schemes that, far from delivering clear benefits to the American people, helped push us into a crisis whose aftereffects continue to blight the lives of tens of millions of their fellow citizens.

I got to see some of this with conversations regarding the recent protests over the weekend.  There are some *very strong* attacks going against Warren, and really she did nothing more than explain how a modern society functions.

I’m still waiting to see how many folks Rush hired with his tax cuts.    And no, Dominican hookers don’t count.

Heck, I’ve seen Adam Smith and Reagan quotes dismissed as “socialist propaganda”.   It would seem, as one who rejected it at the outset, that the anti-intellectual bent of  modern conservatism is finally starting to eat itself, as these folks have no idea how to engage this debate on a rational level, and instead retreat to 60”s-era stereotypes and hope that 50 years of cultural propaganda against a word will suffice as a coherent political argument (i.e. We have to do everything the rich say because otherwise *socialism*).

FBI details surge in death threats against lawmakers;_ylt=Aoof3wZr80p4TN8LPdxvX7PCw5R4;_ylu=X3oDMTBvajZzaTFyBHBvcwMxNQRzZWMDdG9wBHNsawNwcmludA–

In February 2009, a man left voice mail messages for Stabenow in several of her Michigan offices.

“We’re gonna [expletive] get you,” he said in one message. “We’re gonna get you with a lot of [expletive] bolt action. Like we did RFK; like we did MLK. We know who you are. We’ll get you.”

FBI agents tracked the calls to a 54-year-old Texas man who lived alone — and who at one time had owned a 20-gun arsenal of handguns, shotguns and rifles. According to the documents, he told officers that he was “really, really drunk” when he made the calls. He said he was just “venting” — taking out his frustrations after hearing a discussion of the Fairness Doctrine and becoming concerned that the government would attempt to abolish the radio shows of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.

I call this the “Tea Party” effect. Way to make a mark on the country, folks.

UPDATE:  What’s going to be really interesting (i.e. scary) is when these nuts absolutely fail to resonate with voters at large in November.  There will be much gnashing of teeth and firing up the hoverrounds when it becomes apparent most of the sound and fury of the TP is created by the echo chamber of a small group of radicals (led by Sean, Rush, and Beck) all loudly agreeing with one another.
