Well, what did they expect? You would prefer “junk in the trunk” (or even “waste in the waist”)?
With a lavish home in Florida and a private jet, Rush Limbaugh doesn’t need to dwell in the gutter. But given the classless, hypocritical, low-rent, white-trash, misogynistic behavior of his liberal adversaries, he’s had to keep a pied-a-terre in the gutter for just such occasions as this:
Rush Limbaugh opines on the “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” band playing the song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” when presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) appeared on the show earlier this week.
Earlier today Bachmann gave her reaction to the incident during an appearance on FOX News. Bachmann accepted an apology from host Jimmy Fallon, however she said if this had happened to Michelle Obama the band would have been disciplined or fired.
“If that had been Michelle Obama, who’d come out on the stage, and if that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they would have fired the drummer, or at least suspended him,” Bachmann said.
Rush Limbaugh gave Bachmann’s idea a try and introduced “Michelle Obama” to the song “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot. If you are unfamiliar with the song, it starts with “I like big butts.
When challenged, Rush conceded:
“I get it. One is true and one is not. That’s the difference.”
I would prefer to keep Michelle Obama’s derrière out of the picture, but Limbaugh’s handling of it is entirely fair. We are forced to use the maneuver all the time. Someone will say something appalling about Israel or Jews, without shame or fear of criticism, and we have to point out how awful it would be if the same thing were said about blacks or American Indians or Lapps or whoever. Even then, they usually don’t get it.
It was NBC that took this into the mud pit. They just didn’t expect to find someone there waiting for them.
More and more, I think Rush’s approach is correct. Liberals will never like conservatives. They will never accept our arguments, no matter how reasoned and based in fact. They will never respect us, or even treat us with a modicum of respect. To an independent observer, our behavior in the face of such insult would look craven. We would appear not to have the courage of our own convictions.
[Bleep] that. I think I’m right and they’re wrong, so why shouldn’t I tell them? (I never bring up politics with friends, family, or acquaintances, believe me, but if they want to play the game, I know the rules and how to break them.) If it hurts their feelings (as the truth often does), I’ll rub their shoulders sympathetically and offer them a tissue, but I’ll counsel them too: “If you didn’t want an answer, why did you ask the question?”
That’s why I cheer Aggie’s assertion in the post below that we should take all liberals as antisemites until proven otherwise. The evidence is overwhelming: the Occupiers; Unitarians; human rights advocates; left-wing Democrats; race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton; community organizers; academics, both faculty and student… the list of Jew-haters does go on, doesn’t it? If anyone espousing conservative views (or who’s ever voted Republican) is taken as a jack-booted storm trooper, we should return the compliment and label any self-identified simple-minded liberal as a Grand Kleagle wannabe with 600-count Egyptian cotton sheets. If they argue, dismiss their protestations as distinctions without a difference.
Move over, Rush. You’re hogging up the sewer.
PS: It ought to be a heck of a Thanksgiving this year!
