Rush Limbaugh is "caught between an Oxycontin and an oxymoron"
from CNET: Rush Limbaugh: Apple is Republicans, Google is Democrats
In a scholarly analysis of tech blogging, the great Republican commentator offers that 9 out of 10 blogs hate Apple. Because Apple is like the Republican Party. Oddly, though, Limbaugh last year was himself mad at Apple.
When nobility speaks, one should always cock an ear and listen.
I was therefore moved in all quarters of my being when I read Rush Limbaugh's analysis of tech companies and the bloggers who write about them.
Limbaugh isn't merely one of America's most famous radio talk show hosts. He's also something of an aficionado of tech bloggery. And he has reached a Grand Conclusion as to its leanings.
For, as he said on his sonorous radio program, the tech world is just like politics.
Tech bloggery is just as bent and twisted as mainstream news, apparently.
"I would venture to say that nine out of 10 bloggers writing high-tech hate Apple," he said.
I pause to hear the coughs, guffaws, and snorts of more than several million readers of these pages.
There are many who would have warped conniptions at this very concept. They would stare Limbaugh in the face, peer past his copious cigar smoke and sniff: "Are you high?"
But Limbaugh is adamant as to the reasons for his finely tuned observations: "Apple is the equivalent of the Republicans on these blogs."

3. When quoted, Rush had this to say: "Harumph Harumph Harumph Fart Blart Fart Blart.
Farty Blart Harumph Parump, Fart Blart Humph Humph Harumph. Fart."
