Ebert Gives Thumbs Down to Rush (Triple Barf)
Politico ^ | January 4, 2010 | Patrick Gavin

Posted on 01/04/2010 1:17:55 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

Have no doubt about it: Film critic Roger Ebert is no fan of Rush Limbaugh. The unabashed liberal reeled off a series of one-liners on Twitter against the radio talk show host over the weekend, in the wake of Limbaugh's hospital visit due to chest pains.

A sampling:

"Rush: Hawaii is the only country where the Hawaiian shirts come in S, M, L, XL, Rush, and Sumo."

"Rush: Nurse at snack time: 'You have nuts?' 'No!' 'You have dates?' 'Hey, if I had nuts, I'd have dates!' Ah...Har! Har! Har!"

"Rush: Stuck in this hospital room watching TV, I really miss Lou Dobbs. All the Oriental nurses are U.S. citizens, though."

"Rush: Our US health care system is the best in the world. The nurses here in Hawaii keep offering me lays."

"Rush: 'They told me aloha means hello. Only now do they tell me it also means goodbye. Everybody keeps using it around me.'"

The jealousy of the hacks that attack Rush is pathetic. They would give ANYTHING to BE him. Too bad they haven’t the talent.

Wow...that was some spectacularly unfunny (and tacky) stuff. I like many of Ebert’s film reviews (even when I disagree with him), but apparently his skill set does not extend to comedy or appropriateness.

What a dorkwad.

Wow, with comedic wit of that magnitude it surely is a wonder that Ebert had to give up on writing such screen gems as “Beneath the Valley of the Ultra Vixens” and turn to a life of commenting on those who were able to make it in the movie business legitimately.

Ebert's kiss-ass partner was enjoying himself as well >>> After Rush Limbaugh was hospitalized last week with chest pains, TMZ.com ran a poll asking for a "yes" or "no" to the sentiment, "Get well soon." Of course, what would you expect from "professional" movie reviewers.

Hey Roger, which chin did you use to spew your hatred of someone with more skill and talent in one finger then in your whole body??

I mean Rush actually has a profession. Not everyone can do what Rush does, just about anybody can do what you do.

If I had no employable skills, and could lay around watching movies all day...I'd be a movie critic too.

He has always been a reliable reviewer. He raves about movies I would not like to see. He pans movies I like.

If I had never heard of Rush Limbaugh, I would definitely be looking into him.

Roger Ebert (aka The Fat One...) is making fat jokes.

He's probably mad he can only fit into the “Sumo” size, and wishes he could slim down to a “Rush”.

Maybe if he farted out of his ass instead of his mouth

Ebert sucks as a critic. Cre*ms in his jeans over all the liberal crap (Cider House Rules), but pans unmercifully anything that doesn’t fit into his agenda (Bella). He’s one of the most worthless pile of foul mystery matter the world has ever seen.

Roger A+Bert ought to stick to movie reviews.

Except he's not very good with those either.

Roger made a career out of being the "brainy one" in contrast to Gene Siskel, the average guy who liked the popular stuff.

But when you look at Roger's reviews lately, he way overrates the popular stuff. It's like a movie only needs to have a big name in it to win his approval.

Why is there a need to interject politics in movie reviews? No need to answer, just a rhetorical question.

A lot of people become film critics because they wanted to be film stars -- or more correctly, film makers.

It's the same kind of "Look at me! Look at me!" attitude, but the critics are people you really don't want look at, and you don't really want to look at the kind of movies they'd make, either.

If they keep at it long enough and critics start to think that people are interested in everything you have to say, even your political opinions.

Plus, for critics and political junkies, what you don't like, what you disdain, determines who you are and how valuable your opinion is, so it's not hard to move from one category to the other.
