Limbaugh In Limbo, New Emperor Vlad, Holder Crushes My Summer Vacation

"I think Rick Santorum learned something yesterday. He learned that electoral college is not for everyone. Not everyone needs to go the electoral college." – Jay Leno

“Gas prices are so high that Mitt Romney's wife can only afford to drive one Cadillac.” – Jay Leno
"A man in Albuquerque has registered his dog to vote. Apparently the dog likes the current administration but he’s not sure he wants another 28 years of Obama.” – Conan O’Brian

I did not think that the Rush Limbaugh slander and subsequent apology was going to cause so much fuss. Just because Rush broadcasts on over 600 radio stations and is thought to be the most influential man in conservative thought. This makes me sad, that Rush is considered to be smart, along with Newt Gingrich. Most radio talk show hosts are amped up from talking 2 - 3 hours, five days per week, and as a result, have a hard time calming down, have trouble getting to sleep, and can't focus for extended lengths of time. They also rarely read anything beyond the briefs that their staff prepares for them as talking points for their next show. Rush does a 3 hour monologue for five days per week, and never apologizes for whatever he says, saying he was being humorous and people need to learn how to take a joke...

Rush wasn't going to apologize for calling a law student whom he never met a slut and prostitute, and when he did apologize, it was pretty much a lot of BS, and was rejected as such by the woman, Sandra Fluke. He had to apologize because he was losing sponsors, so far about 20 have stopped buying advertising, and his website has no third party ads. Of the GOP presidential candidates, only Ron Paul was honest, calling Rush insincere. Recently, Rush has decided that he was the victim of a well orchestrated Democratic plot to discredit him, in a display of drug induced paranoia:, as related by Greg Sargent in the Washington Post: “Obama is sorely hurting with women in preelect polls,” Rush is now claiming. “He wanted to turn this into an issue much as they used to use abortion. So the Democrats played the game.”

Limbaugh’s latest theory: He alleges that Dems sprang a trap by pushing Sandra Fluke as a witness for the House hearing on contraception and religious liberty. “They wanted to turn this from a committee hearing on Obama and his unconstitutional mandate to the issue of contraception so as to bring back to life page 1-A of the Democrat playbook: Republicans Hate Women,” Rush says.
“I’ll just say this, which is, it’s not the language I would have used,” - Mitt Romney
Because Rush was addicted to a prescription drug, Oxycontin, and still displays the mental behavior of an addict, it should be noted that every year the deaths from prescription drugs in the US are 28 times more than those who die from heroin abuse. I often wonder, and have written in my blog before about it, how much of our policies are made by politicians under the influence of prescription drugs. This could be the reason for the national swing towards extremist right wing lack of well reasoned thought, along with the operant conditioning produced by watching a lot of television. Which implies that is has been planned out in advance, breeding more paranoia and conspiracy theories...

Well, Vladimir Putin handily won the Russian election, no surprises there. It was more of a farce than an election, much admired by the Iranians, who have been taking notes and imitating in their own elections... Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Moscow and St. Petersburg, vowing to stay until Putin resigns. If you thought that the Syrian government is vicious, just wait for a few weeks and watch how he takes care of the revolting peasants. It's his autocratic strong-man behavior that other rulers find attractive, along with his manly body odor, and may account for the inroads that Russia is making in Africa and the Middle East...

Yes, there was ballot stuffing and bad behavior, though, thankfully, no political assassinations. Of course, all of Putin's serious opponents are sitting in jail, but they might be released after the protests die down. In one precinct in Chechneya, an observer watched as the total ballot count exceeded the number of eligible voters, with all of the votes going to ol' Vlad., except for one going to the candidate from the communist party. There are hundreds more instances of fraud that have been recorded on camera and by international observers. But the amount of fraud seems to be less than a few months ago during the parliamentary elections, so this one is deemed a success... Soon, we may have to address the former street thug as the Emperor, using that title because he likes to strut around wearing no clothes... The only real problem with another 6 years of Vladimir Putin, is that Russia has no more animals for him to hunt or fondle, depending on his moods. So, the next step is to go into other countries and track down all of their exotic beasts in search of the perfect photo op..

In a speech at northwestern University, the Attorney General, Eric Holder, said that it's OK to assassinate American citizens in foreign countries: “Any decision to use lethal force against a United States citizen — even one intent on murdering Americans and who has become an operational leader of al-Qaeda in a foreign land — is among the gravest that government leaders can face,” Holder said in a speech at Northwestern University’s law school in Chicago. “The American people can be — and deserve to be — assured that actions taken in their defense are consistent with their values and their laws.”

Of course, he was justifying the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, the American who was living in Yemen and made some tapes that were anti-American, after he had been detained and tortured by the CIA, then released... If you are making plans on visiting Europe or Asia this summer, you might want to rethink, I hear the Grand Canyon is beautiful at that time of the year... Is it good to know that this administration is just as bent on taking away your freedom and liberty as the Bush administration was? If they weren't so batshit crazy, it would be enough to make me join the tea party...
