More Right Wing Idiocy

You know, there’s a lot of idiots out there, so I don’t like to concentrate on any one of them, to the exclusion of the other idiots.

Like Rush Limbaugh, for example. If I mention the Pilonidal Cyst That Walks Like A Man in one post, I like to stay away from him for a while. Which is usually a good policy, but becomes a little difficult to follow through on when he opens his slavering gob and spews out statements like this.
Liberals should have their speech controlled and not be allowed to buy guns. I mean if we want to get serious about this, if we want to face this head on, we're gonna have to openly admit liberals should not be allowed to buy guns, nor should they be allowed to use computer keyboards or typewriters, word processors or e-mails, and they should have their speech controlled.

If we did those three or four things, I can't tell you what a sane, calm, civil, fun-loving society we would have. Take guns out of the possession, out of the hands of liberals. Take their typewriters and their keyboards away from 'em. Don't let 'em anywhere near a gun and control their speech, and you would wipe out 90 percent of the crime, 85 to 95 percent of the hate and 100 percent of the lies from society.
This, coming from Rush Limbaugh, who, speaking about President Obama, said to a caller, "He's taking away freedom, incrementally each and every day, making another big grab at it. That's not hypocrisy. That's tyranny.”

But I suppose you have to be generous and remember that his audience is made up of socially-inept mouthbreathers who spell the word “hippockrassy,” So let’s look to vent our spleen elsewhere.

Pennsylvania, for example.

Former Senator Rick Santorum has been out of office for about four years now, and the lack of a public spotlight is starting to wear on him. After all, he’s kind of a pretty boy, and really, really wants to be the center of attention. So he’s putting out feelers to see if maybe he can run for President in 2012 (and if not as a Republican, maybe he can run as the candidate for the Invasive Theocracy Party).

Ricky is an awesome figure in American politics. I love this guy. I mean, I'm not sure what combination of medications he used in order to appear sane, at least long enough to get elected; but since then, he's built up a body of work that basically makes him a leper in Pennsylvania politics. At least, to anybody but a devout Catholic.

Santorum is a man who believes that consensual sexual relations between two adult men is exactly the same as a man having sex with a dog.

(And you know, he never even addresses the question of whether the dog is a top or not. But I digress.)

The controversy surrounding his blatant homophobia was so public, so acrimonious and so lung-searingly rancid that it prompted gay advice columnist Dan Savage to run a contest defining the word "santorum" (small ess, of course, and therefore protected by satire laws). And the final determination?

"That frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex."

This definition is now spread so widely across the internet that Santorum can't escape it. Nevertheless, he plans to try.

But in the course of his journey to an ignominious defeat, he's providing still more fascinating soundbites.

Yup, that's right. In the course of trying to make an argument against abortion, he actually says:
The question is -- and this is what Barack Obama didn't want to answer -- is that human life a person under the Constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well if that person -- human life is not a person, then -- I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, 'we're going to decide who are people and who are not people.'
Yup. Damn those uppity negroes. Why can't they see that it's the white folks who should make those decisions? We have their best interests in mind, after all.

Yes, I understand that what he's trying to say is that blacks, more than whites, should be opposed to abortion. Which is an equally stupid position. And since I get to choose between two equally stupid positions, I'm going with the one that I can have more fun with.

So I'll tell you what, Right Wing. You stop taking quotes from our guys out of context, and I'll do the same for you.


  1. Nameless - You know, there’s a lot of idiots out there, so I don’t like to concentrate on any one of them, to the exclusion of the other idiots ...

    Let me give you my assurances. Please feel free to pick any idiot you want. And any method of torment you chose: White Out. Sheep's dip. Concentrated wintergreen on Limbaugh's hemorrhoids. A Jim Carry Lookalike Bestiality Fetish for Rick Santorum. Your choice. Have fun. This is an Equal Opportunity Torment a Baghead weblog.

  2. BTW, did I mention soap and water and a very hard scrub brush?

  3. I don't think the right can help themselves from taking things out of context. They only understand every third word.

  4. Nameless, you have accomplished the impossible. Normally when I read anything said by Limbaugh,I just want to slap him but you made me laugh. I was able to dissipate my desire to hit Rush up side the head. I think it's a miracle and you are on the road to canonization.

    As for Santorum, I suppose that if he can't be president that his second career choice is preparing to become Rush's successor. What would the airwaves be without a voice speaking about nothing of substance while spewing lies designed to seduce the zombified public?

  5. Nameless, I want to echo Sheria's sentiments here. Usually any rant that involves right wingnuttery and either Limbaugh or Beck sends me into spasms of outrage and a burning desire to stick their head in a toliet bowl.
    Instead I too found myself laughing at your witty satire.
    My heart is beating normally, no heartburn, no pain in the top of my head so keep writing and I just might live longer! :)

  6. Wouldn't it be cool to have a Huckabee-Santorum ticket in 2012? They would be like the dream team made in Heaven (or is that Hell).

  7. rush limbaugh is scum
    even he knows it's true
    including his dittoheads
    red, white, and blew

    the right is not right
    in fact they are wrong
    in their twisted vision
    only they sing the song

    yet, the tune that they carry
    is shrill and obtuse
    filled with delusions
    of hardship and abuse

    in their dementia
    they may sound sane
    but it's up to the left
    to be more profane

    in this battle of wits
    who's keeping score
    the body counts rising
    as blood stains the floor

    rush limbaugh fuck you
    and those of you kind
    your insane motivations
    have left this country blind

  8. finefroghair,

    Another winnah! Love it!

    As those of you who visit my blog know, I do document the stupidities of the right's heroes.

    Lately, I can bearly keep even with their inanities, which seem to be coming at us at an alarming rate these days.

    Bachmann's "Founding Father's tirelessly working to end slavery;"

    Palin's "The USSR won the space race," and her ignorant reference to a coffee shop in Richaland, WA, that she praised for not relying on government, and which, it turns out would have never existed WITHOUT the government;

    Limbaugh's never-ending racism. And the latest, an adoring ditto head of his threatening a Calif. state rep. while referring to President Obama as a Marxist N****r;

    And finally, Beckerhead, who has managed to enrage just about everyone except people with orbitolfrontal disorders, has attracted the anger of 400 rabbis who demanded of his boss, Murdoch, that Beck stop referring to and devaluing the word "Holocaust." Which Beck uses even when he's upset with his toothpaste.

    The Tea Party heroes:

    A racist, an idiot, a liar, and an anti-Semite.

    I think we all need to continuously remind our saner conservative friends of who they've allowed to represent them.

  9. I hate to be depressing, but the things that Rush spews don't just reach his knuckle-dragging audience -- with alarming frequency, they reach the legislative chambers.

    To me, a lunatic wannabe 2012 candidate like Santorum isn't nearly as much a threat as the thought that our lawmakers' debate is shaped by Rush, Bill-o, Becky, etc.
