Ironic Limbaugh quote from 88 -- How prophetic!!

"And now the liberals want to stop President Reagan from selling chemical warfare agents and military equipment to Saddam Hussein, and why? Because Saddam 'allegedly' gassed a few Kurds in his own country. Mark my words. All of this talk of Saddam Hussein being a 'war criminal' or 'committing crimes against humanity' is the same old thing. LIBERAL HATE SPEECH! And speaking of poison gas . . . I SAY WE ROUND UP ALL THE DRUG ADDICTS AND GAS THEM TOO!"

Rush Limbaugh, Nov. 3, 1988

There was a guy raging about how wonderful the OxyMoron is in my chatroom so I posted the above quote. 6 or 8 republicans immediately left the room. Too funny.

2. That quote is too perfect.
He even says 'Mark my words.' And someone did.

4. It's not a real quote.
It was satirically used in a Boondocks comic strip, but it's fake.

5. It was the RW buzz back then

And would be again today if the left were to start pointing out that it was REAGAN and POPPA BUSH who armed Hussein.

Nobody can FLIP-FLOP as fast as the rightwingnuttery.

8. Smiling.
I did believe it was a Rush statement. I bet even most Rush followers would believe it was, also. That is funny.
