So Rush Limbaugh is "ashamed" to be an American.

Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that for the first time he’s “ashamed” of the United States — this as President Barack Obama and Democrats plead to the public to urge Congress to reach a deal on the sequester.

“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country,” the conservative commentator said on his radio program.

He added: “To have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being is — it just makes me ashamed.”

Limbaugh’s comments come as Obama and Democrats are warning Americans about what they say will happen if Congress doesn’t avert sequestration, the automatic $1.2 trillion in federal spending cuts over the next decade that are scheduled to take effect March 1.

Yeah he insults our intelligence on a daily basis and turned our once civil political discourse into a dog-eat-dog wasteland. You know what Rush? If you're ashamed to be an American then get the fuck out.

When I was in the Air National Guard, service personnel, especially officers, were supposed to (publicly anyway) be apolitical.

This certainly isn't apolitical.

The overpaid draft-dodging Republican propaganda pimp gets to pollute the minds of our sons and daughters in uniform, and there is no alternative view whatsoever provided to counterbalance his lies and spin with facts and truth.

6. He certainly wasn't ashamed...

...when his party controlled all branches of government during the GWB era.

...when GWB (with the complicity of Congress) instituted the fascist USA Patriot Act, the most heinous legislation since the Alien and Sedition Acts.

...when GWB started an illegal war with Iraq on false pretences to settle scores with Saddam Hussein for trying to kill the elder Bush in 1993.

...when Newt Gingrich and his bully boys (and girls) shut down the government in 1995 (of course, it could be said that they played "chicken" with Bill Clinton and he made them blink).

...when he used the excuse of a pilonidal cyst (boil in his arse-crack) to get out of serving in the military.

Anyway, I thought he was moving to Costa Rica?

33. Hey, don't pick on pilonidal cysts...

I used to have problems with one (it was stress aggravated in college, like a stint of stuttering I had at the time). It was, literally and figuratively, a pain in the ass. I had to wrap it up several times a day or else I'd bleed all over my pants, my friend's Civic, the stool in the darkroom and my bed sheets. Oh, and pulling the tape off wasn't fun, either.

Hey, maybe THAT'S why Rush is such a dick all the time! Somebody send him some sulfa drugs and maybe an Oxy or two .

47. I sympathise...

I have never had a pilonidal cyst, thank God, but I have had semi-frequent boils in other places (including one place you NEVER want to have one!), and have had to load up on antibiotics as well as foul-smelling icthammol ointment...so I do sympathise with you. It's no wonder that boils are listed among the Biblical plagues!

With Limbaugh, though, it seems awfully "convenient" that he had one when he did...not to mention getting the doctor vouch for it for his draft board. Of course, he comes from Cape Girardeau "old money" so calling in a favour wouldn't have been too hard.

I wasn't drafted, I enlisted, so I don't know how it was during the draft. In my experience, if I would have had a boil when I went for my enlistment physical it wouldn't have DQ'd me; it would probably have been "come back when it's cleared up."

Rush Limbaugh should be ashamed that he is considered by some as a human being, which he isn't. I did a couple of blogs about him in 2012 on my Nasty Jack Blog.

...without his verbal venom the Democrats wouldn't have won the popular vote in almost every national election since he hit the airwaves. His attack on Michael J. Fox helped the Democrats win the House & Senate in '06 and his assault on Sandra Fluke last year surely energized a lot of women (not that they needed any more) to vote Democratic. He's a bigger hemorrhoid for the rushpublicans now than he is the Democrats. His "Operation Chaos" is ripping that corrupt and inept party apart. Now let's see how soon his bosses at Cheap Channel will be ashamed of the huge paycheck they have to cut him...
