Rush Limbaugh’s Fake Ron Paul Ad Will Not Be A Hit With Ron Paul Fans
Mediaite ^ | December 17, 2011 | Frances Martel

At this point, Rush Limbaugh‘s offensive against Rep. Ron Paul has become something of a regular feature on his program. So it’s not entirely surprising that Limbaugh’s anti-Paulism has seeped into his commercials, too– or at least in parody. This week, Limbaugh debuted a “pro” Rep. Paul ad that featured the “candidate” arguing “the greatest danger is not from Iran, it’s from us overreacting.” Surely this will go over well with Paul fans.

“Ron Paul has recorded a commercial for us,” Limbaugh joked, before a commercial played featuring a fairly good (albeit a little caricatured) voice of Ron Paul arguing, “the greatest danger is not from Iran, its from us overreacting. Yhy are we flying drones over there–we are the problem here!” Followed by an anchor delivering the punchline: “Vote Ron Paul: Because Newt Gingrich is too zany and weird.”

The “campaign ad” via Limbaugh’s show below:

Maybe I'm just projecting. I used to listen to him almost every day. Now, I doubt that I listen more than 10 minutes per month.

On the first sentence, how insightful of you to be honest. On the last, therein lies your problem. If you don't know what they are saying, how can you disagree with what they are saying? Maybe you have resorted to feel good notions of your own disillusionment that feeds your own insecurities.

Unless you know the battlefield, you have no defense and any mounted on faulty notions only make you appear to be a bigger strategic fool than even you would ever figure out, or by happenstance, to ever stumble upon. Thus making you more dangerous to yourself than you are to anyone you disagree with.

One reason I haven’t listened to him is that, every time I turn it on, there’s either a commercial or he’s talking about football, himself, or petty politics. Has he talked about the NDAA, and the fact that it allows US citizens to be detained without a trial? Has he talked about MF Global pilfering $1.2 Billion from customers’ accounts? Has he talked about any of the other symptoms of the creeping tyranny that is our government? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, maybe I’ll give him another chance.

>>>If that’s the case, why is he leading in the Iowa polls?

They’re polling at “Occupy Des Moines”.

Polls are CRAP. They are not made to reflect opinion, they are made to SHAPE it. As soon as you get that - you’ll know they’re not worth the papers they’re printed in.

“Talkers magazine” is a left wing publication which minimizes Rush Limbaugh at every opportunity.

Typo in my post above--It should have said "And second of all, being conservative does not give one the right to mischaracterize or pigeon hole people."

Simple: Iowa = Idiots Out Walking Around.

I know, I used to live there. I escaped in 1997 and never went back.

Anyone who puts credence in this poll I'll simply remind you of one fact about the average Iowan's "intelligence" to vote: Barack Hussein Obama.

There's such a thing? Well, I dunno... when I lived in Altoona Iowa was already "occupied" if you know what I mean.

(Sorry about the IOWA crack...)
