AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and hes not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (thats Rush, for those in Rio Linda),the Mandarin of Talk Radio, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, all-concerned Maha-Rushie! Americas anchorman, truth detector, and doctor of democracy. A Real Man, a living legend, a way of life. Commander in Chief of U.S. Operation Chaos. Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe. Chief of the Patriotism Police. Leader of the Conservative Movement. A Weapon of Mass Instruction. El Rushbo (a little Spanish lingo, there). He is the man who is running America (you know it and I know it). He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to dothats host. Get ready to what you were born to dothats listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).
Rush asked if other “institutions” (other than the Catholic Church) will now begin to wake up.
Will this be one of them? I doubt it:
Chris used to be on after Levin then they gave him the 9-12 time slot.
Then Clear Channel tried to cut corners and fired him to put in that detestable Slow Joe Scarborough. Their ratings plummeted and there was such an outcry they hired him back after 6 months. Now he’s syndicated but only plays in a couple dozen small markets. But it’s a start.
I am sure Rush knows that the “99% contracepting” figure is a complete lie and distortion.
He eventually recanted, but really, even the most humble FReeper could have called it better:
Here’s the original post I was looking for:
No, I will not be voting for Romney.
You’re the whackjob for supporting a power hungry, pro Obamacare, unscrupulous flip flopping liberal from Massachusetts.
Lemme know how that works out for ya.Got McCain?
Oh, and Sloop, how’re your monthly contributions to FR coming? Or do you just use the site to slobber over Mittens.
If so, you can leave any time.
Obama wants Romney so that he and the DBM can happily do to Mormonism what Hannity tried to do to Black Liberation Theology.
LOL! I like it.
“needs a larger audience “
Total agree, Emailed it and Facebooked, not to mention I have been speaking about it in smaller groups at Church and at Tea Party meetings. Its well written, old news but needed to be said again (and again and again) until the point is made and sinks in. Evil has to be called out into the light of day, then it will scurry away when enough recognize it.
Great show today, a true eye-opener!

Wow, interesting... thanks for the info about Chris Plante. Glad to hear there was such a huge outcry to get him back on air!
About 7 or 8 years ago (?), we were on I-95 driving back to CT from CPAC - my husband called into Chris Plante's show on WMAL, which ran on Sundays back then I guess. Chris listened to my husband describe what went on at CPAC with rapt attention - gave him lots of time to speak and was appreciative for the 'inside information'. Good guy, and we really enjoy what we've heard of his shows.
Joe "the Sellout" Scarborough on the other hand... ugh! Joe was the emcee of our Thursday night dinner/banquet at CPAC and was promptly BOOed big time when he was introduced! (Everyone at our table of 10 were among those booing him)
Joe seemed taken aback by the negative reaction from the CPAC audience, and I believe he still thinks he was booed simply because he works for MSNBC. We were booing him - regardless of what network he works for - because he's completely sold out over the years from being a pretty solid conservative from the FL panhandle, to a detestable, nasty RINO/liberal.
Scarborough was supposed to say "a few words" then simply introduce Rep. Paul Ryan - keynote of this dinner - but he spent a LONG TIME (wish I knew specifically how long his speech was) droning on and on about himself, as if anybody cared.
Joe Scarborough had no business appearing at CPAC - hope I never see him again.
Zazzle... thanks! I’ll be placing a few orders ASAP. ;-)
Slow Joe was at CPAC? WTF!
He was on Meet The Depressed this Sunday and you couldn’t tell the difference between him or David Greggy.
I got me one of those computer app thingies that diagnoses sicknesses
you got terminal dumbass
and no - romney is not my choice - you made a wrong assumption
but anyone that thinks romney would be as bad as obama is a fool - but go ahead and pout if your candidate does not get the nod
you are why we got mclettuce and obama
WTF is right... exactly what we said when he was introduced! CPAC 2012 seemed to purge most of the liberal/RINO and pro-gay groups that had infiltrated this conference in the recent past, but Slow Joe somehow managed to get through this year. Strange.

Ugh, I missed MTP on Sunday (was racing to get outta the hotel in DC), but I have no doubt what you say is true!
“CPAC 2012 seemed to purge most of the liberal/RINO and pro-gay groups
I did not know that. One of the reasons I don’t go. Maybe next year I’ll go, I live in Bethesda so I can just hop on the metro. BTW Chris broadcasts his show from there on Thursday and Friday. You should listen to them, they were great shows too, they will be up for a few more days. He went there on Saturday too, you could have met him! Mrs Suhks is a huge fan/groupie and goes to a lot of his WMAL parties, me, not so much ;o)
Im loving Chris Plant yelling at the “MORON” on his program! Thanks for the heads up!!

I had the link because I had heard it discussed on a local talk radio station this morning. I agree, a great commentary. I remember at the time of Roe v Wade, I got the impression that the Catholic Church didn’t want to aggressively speak out because they feared, in the midst the “sexual revolution” that they would lose too many church members.
There are conversations right now to arrange a meeting to talk with folks about how this policy can be nuanced, said Joel C. Hunter, a Florida megachurch pastor who has grown personally close to Obama and advised his White House on religious issues. This is so fixable, and we just want to get into the conversation. ....
"The left confuses their contortions with "nuance," but nuance is simply the left left brain's feeble attempt to keep reality at bay, which inevitably seeps in through the walls, ceilings, and floorboards."
"Unintelligent people are usually just plain wrong, so we don't have to worry much about them. On the other hand, in order to attain truly deep stupidity, one must generally be of above average intelligence. Therefore, in a certain very real sense, intelligence does not vary inversely with stupidity, but directly with it. Not for nothing has it been said that so much philosophy is simply "error on a grandiose scale."
A prime example of deep stupidity and grandiose error is Marxism and all of its many polluted streams, branches, creeks and crocks. That variants of this falsehood still proliferate on the left today means that, as always, intelligence alone is no unknowculation against evil, darkness, and error. Hardly.
For conservative "classical" liberals, we are generally faced with an odious choice between the stupid party and the evil party.
We generally align ourselves with the former, since the former is at least susceptible to our influence, whereas the latter is not.
"...the fundamental truths are always accessible, but they could not be imposed on those who refuse to take them into consideration."
Among other responses, truth engenders a dynamic sense of veneration -- a sense of the sacred. And this is why you will have noticed that the left attempts to surround so many of its moldy lies with the penumbra of sanctity. But the sanctity is entirely bogus -- it readily slides into the sanctimony that is intrinsic to the left. In a perverse way, this sanctimoniousness answers the human need for the sacred, but in an alternatively crudely sentimental or authoritarian manner enforced by the many varieties political correctness. (You will notice that the left's confusion of sentimentality with moral/religious depth is just as evident as their totalitarian mind control; they are not opposites but complementary -- like Hitler's sentimental love of dogs.)
This is why the left doesn't really have ideas but icons -- including "iconic ideas." It is an insidious and sinister process, because there is great psychological pressure on all us of to bow down before these false gods, as if they were actually sacred (for example, the many fawning MSM tributes to "the Goreacle"). And there is absolutely no symmetry in this.
For example, if a conservative steps in one of the left's many sacred cowpies, there is a good chance that his career will be ruined. But if a leftist offends what is actually sacred, he will be praised as someone who "speaks truth to power."
It is inconceivable that the media would trot out some moral equivalent of Christopher Hitchens to blast Martin Luther King on the occasion of his death because of the latter's embrace of dangerous socialist ideas. For one thing, few conservatives are so tasteless, not to mention enraged.
The point is that nearly every one of the leftists's core beliefs is not a proper idea but an icon, whether it is manmade global warming, being "for the little guy," affirmative action, abortion, homosexual behavior, "peace," "progress," multiculturalism, diversity -- in fact, "progressive" is the quintessence of a meaningless icon, since it bears no relationship to progress and promotes economic and social policies that ensure not just a lack of progress, but regression. For example, the "peace movement" can only bring about more war, just as affirmative action can only bring about harm to blacks.
And this is why it is so easy to be a conservative, because you no longer have to contort yourself with so many lies in order to be thoroughly consistent, both internally and externally. The left confuses their contortions with "nuance," but nuance is simply the left left brain's feeble attempt to keep reality at bay, which inevitably seeps in through the walls, ceilings, and floorboards. ........."
Deep Stupidity and the Medicine for a Nightmare ~ Robert W. Godwin, Ph.D (forensic clinical psychologist)
If Obama gets reelected, it’ll be because of a stupid, uninformed electorate who votes for him..
and a stupid uninformed GOP Establishment who thinks that nominating a Rino is going to be the answer,.
Go away, Sloop.
We don’t need any more Mitt Romney for President fan club members here on FR.
There must be another site for you where you can slobber over him with other Rinos.
even though i made it clear its not romney
but i will vote for him if the choice is romney or obama - something you won't do
enough of you emotionally stunted, brain damaged fools do that and obama would win
I know enough about you to know I don’t care who you support.
just so you know - i’m off the market
i don't date chicks without toofz
I'd vote for my dog over Obama.
I did not know that. One of the reasons I dont go. Maybe next year Ill go, I live in Bethesda so I can just hop on the metro. BTW Chris broadcasts his show from there on Thursday and Friday.

Sorry for the delay in my reply to you, Clint N. Suhks. I had to do a little research to ensure that GOProud (the pro-gay group) was indeed NOT at CPAC 2012. They were not. I wandered through the vast exhibition hall (3-4 times bigger than when CPAC was at the Crystal Marriott in Arlington years ago) and didn't see a GOProud booth, but I found out for sure (by another source) that they were not at CPAC this year.
Part of the past problems with GOProud and the boycott of CPAC by Sarah Palin, Heritage Center, and others was the bad blood between these people/groups and ACU/CPAC head David Keene (whom I think enthusiastically embraced GOProud). Keene retired at the end of CPAC 2011 - Al Cardenas (a Cuban-American from Florida) now runs CPAC, and overall, he did a fine job this year.
Sarah Palin was the keynote (finally!), I think Heritage was back, Frank Gaffney, Media Research Center, others all made a return after years of absence in some cases. There wasn't any "controversy" this year, like last year and in some previous years. Nobody missed David Keene, although he was there as an attendee and introduced a couple of speakers.
Before you sign up for CPAC next year, you may want to check the cpac.org site (or call someone at the ACU/CPAC) to see if GOProud or other objectionable groups plan to return. My source told me that "GOProud hopes to return to CPAC 2013". Apparently GOProud held some event near the CPAC 2012 venue, but they definitely were not included this year. Hopefully "hope" is as far as they get next year. ;-)
I wish I could have met Chris Plante as well - it was difficult to leave our seats in the big ballroom last Saturday - we needed to keep those seats so we could be sure to have a seat for Sarah! They had several overflow rooms with Sarah on video, but heck, we wanted to sit as close to her as possible!
There are WMAL parties? What goes on there? Darn, I wish we lived closer to the DC area. Lots of fun stuff going on down there for us political junkies.... ;-)
