A big fat idiot after all?

As much as it pains me to say it, it appears that Al Franken may have actually been correct about Rush Limbaugh:

“The Republican Party has — because of you, because you let them hear from you — not gone bipartisan. They have not joined this failure. In fact, there are people in the House (from John Boehner to Mike Pence, to Eric Cantor, to Paul Ryan) who are doing everything that they can. Jim DeMint over in the Senate, Tom Coburn over in the Senate, these people, especially now don’t deserve to be bashed or lumped in a generalized way with all the bad apples in Washington because all of them there are not bad apples.” . . .

“The point at this stage is to support the conservatives in and outside public office. I certainly would not have ignored the other team on the field, the Democrats. They’re the only reason we’re in this mess. The Democrat Party is the only reason we are threatened with the things we’re threatened with. The Democrat Party. Solely. They own it. There’s no evidence I see of anybody colluding with the Democrats on this health care business. There’s not one Republican vote in the Senate for it.

Right, because it’s HEALTH CARE that people are upset about. And the Tea Party movement is all about the need to invade Iran and Obama is the most evilist president ever except we have to support him abroad because otherwise Goldman Sachs will fall to the Taleban, too few Mexicans will enter the country to pay for another AIG bailout and the terrorists will win. The fact is that with the exception of a very few principled men, such as the winner of the recent CPAC straw poll, they’re pretty much all bad apples in Washington, Democrats and Republicans alike. A Republican administration pushed through TARP. A Republican administration bailed out the banks. A Republican presidential candidate put Wall Street’s interests ahead of the American people and his own presidential campaign! A Republican-appointed central banker created the housing boom, the housing bust, and the global financial crisis.

The DEMOCRATS are the only reason the USA is in this mess? Limbaugh must be a complete economic illiterate because that is nothing less than a monstrous lie. The Democrats surely haven’t helped one iota, but the destruction of the American economy was a distinctly bipartisan effort. Abandon Rush Limbaugh, abandon the Republican Party, and abandon the so-called conservatives. They have the same relationship to the Democrats and liberals that a high-class escort does to a street hooker. They may look prettier and speak a little more pleasantly, but they’re still nothing more than whores for the State.
