Guess Who?

[Mystery Date] is an American Renaissance man. Not only are his interests broad and deep, his expertise on myriad subjects legendary, his character is relentless — and most importantly — comprehensively and quintessentially American. He teaches us, reminds us, inspires us with his pitch-perfect, gut-level understanding and articulation of freedom and America's unique role in leveraging it for the greatest progress in the history of the world. He epitomizes what we all aspire to be, both as citizens and individuals.

...

Through the ups and downs of two decades, his message — always delivered with optimism, civility, and good humor — has been faithful to two core convictions: the power of freedom and the power of American exceptionalism.

...

He is talented, witty, creative, informed, and smart as hell. People look up to him, and love him — and they’re quite right.


...

In the Great Man's own words:

"Feminism was established so that unattractive women could have easier access to the mainstream of society. Just look at the history of feminism if you doubt the truth."

"We must tax the poor. This is not hardhearted and mean. It is axiomatic that if you subsidize an activity or condition you get more of it; if you tax it you get less of it. Obviously, we want to eliminate poverty, and there is the one method that has never been tried: tax it."

"Why should Blacks be heard? They're 12% of the population. Who the hell cares."

"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back."

"Citizen service is a repudiation of the principles upon which our country was based. We are all here for ourselves."

"One of the things I want to do before I die is conduct the homeless olympics...the 10-metre shopping cart relay, the dumpster dig, and the hop, skip, and trip."

"If we are going to start rewarding no skills and stupid people--I'm serious, let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do--let the stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work."


Gracious, witty, creative, humanitarian, Great Man Rush Limbaugh. Rich beyond avarice and popular with millions. This is America's Hero.

Right. Feminists are so unattractive that Gloria Steinem actually got hired as a Playboy bunny at one of Hef's clubs to expose the mistreatment of the women working there. Besides, what's he saying here, anyway? People he deems "ugly" don't have a right to "mainstream society"?

That man is truly disgusting. It's almost shocking to think how deluded the right is about him, just because he makes them feel good by his racist, sexist, all-American rants.

I think we might be finally seeing the fruit of his labors, too. As the far fringe right sees itself lose power in government and abroad and suffer finacially at home, they're going to grab their God-given guns and go after some liberals. It's already started.
