Congratulations to the poster who made Rush
I didn't read the post but Rush obviously did.

It's the post that speculated that Rove had caused the plane crash in New York just to remind people about 9/11.

I seldom listen to Rush - does he mention DU very often?

4. Apparently, the bloated gasbag trolls DU for material.
Kind of like he trolls the Dominican Republic for underage sex workers to relieve his Viagra induced "stiffy".

6. Well, I propose a new tactic...
1) When OxyRush Limpballs or his fellow travelers mention a post on DU, create a "counterfeit" thread with the same subject line.

2) Instead of actually contaiing the idiocy that Rush and Pals mentioned on the air, use the thread as an opportunity to spoon-feed anti-Bush material to Rush's dildo-heads.

3) If a thread of stupidity is mentioned on-air and JUSTIFIABLY held-up for ridicule, then the moderators should keep the subject line, but replace the text with educational material as described above.

4) Anyone who posts something so stupid that it gets held-up publicly for JUSTIFIABLE ridicule should have their account locked for at least forty-eight hours.

5. What was it Rush was doing in the Dominican Republic?
JULY 6--Rush Limbaugh was traveling with four other men--including the producers of the hit show "24"--when he was detained over a mislabeled bottle of Viagra found in his luggage during a Customs search. A Department of Homeland security passenger manifest shows that Limbaugh and his four buddies flew from the Dominican Republic on a Gulfstream IV jet owned by Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates his radio program. Limbaugh returned to Palm Beach, Florida on June 26 with Joel Surnow, "24"'s co-creator and executive producer and Howard Gordon, another of the Fox hit's executive producers (Hollywood agent Jeffrey Benson was also part of the Limbaugh quintet). With all those guys in tow, it is unclear what Limbaugh needed with those 29 100mg Viagra pills. The passenger manifest was among several documents released today by the Palm Beach County State's Attorney in response to a TSG open records request. Included in the material released were a copy of the handwritten statement Limbaugh provided investigators after he was detained upon the discovery of the impotency drug. An affidavit sworn three days later by Limbaugh was also released. In that document, Limbaugh explains that the Viagra "was intended for my exclusive use" and that the drug had been prescribed in the name of his drug treatment doctor, Steven Strumwasser, "to further maintain and protect my privacy."

from Smoking Gun

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0706062rush1.html


Also from an Alternet article:

~~As Melissa noted earlier in PEEK, from a CBS story: "Rush Limbaugh was detained for more than three hours Monday at Palm Beach International Airport after authorities said they found a bottle of Viagra in his possession without a prescription."

He was reportedly returning from the Dominican Republic at the time which, as Terrance Heath notes, leaves a big, gaping hole in the story.

What was Rush doing in the Dominican Republic? Why was he returning from a country known for its thriving sex trade, with a bottle of Viagra that didnt have his name on it?
From a 2001 Wired.com article:

the Dominican Republic is one of the biggest sex tourism destinations in the world, thanks in part to Internet sites that extol the country as a "single man's paradise."
...
Among banner ads for Viagra, members can shuffle through pictures of dull-eyed prostitutes engaged in flagrante delicto with the members/amateur pornographers.
Is it fair to go after Limbaugh for his woes? Of course, just as it's fair game to out gay politicians who support bigoted policy toward gays.

Limbaugh inveighs against medical marijuana users regularly, making him a WORLD CLASS HYPOCRITE.

But I like Terrance's alliterative aspersions:

These are not nice questions, which is why most people wont ask them. But Rush is not a nice guy. And when a pundit whose party pokes its noses into peoples private affairs as a matter of policy is caught pocketing pills to pump up his penis, on his way back from a country plenteous with prostitutes
Well pardon me if Im compelled to prod and ponder why this public personality required a prescription for his penis in that place, and where he put it while he was there.~~

10. Unfortunately...
I also saw at least 1 post like this the other day, but I can't say if it was a troll or not. I think I posted on the same thread (though I read several threads on this so I'm not 100% sure), but it's now been deleted. There were even people in the thread asking that it be pulled, though I doubt that jackass mentioned that.

There definitely seems to be a greater amount of troll-like material lately. I saw a poll "Who would you vote for if you could only pick * or Bin Laden" yesterday. The voting was tied at the time I read it. I'm surprised jackass didn't mention that one too, though I imagine that probably didn't spend too long on DU based on the comments the users were posting.

Sean Hannity also mentioned that post on his radio show yesterday.
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 01:42 PM by RebelOne
He said he saw it on a liberal Web site. Just wondering who saw it first -- Rush or Hannity.

11. I searched...and here's the only thing I found:
My guess is that Lush picked up on this post and commented without acknowledging it was sarcasm. Imagine that.

#40. Those are jets from the special Depleted Uranium cutting torches...

...developed for 9/11.

Karl Rove was remotely controlling the plane to crash into the building to take the news off Foley and NK.

:sarcasm: if you couldn't tell.

Why must everything be a GOP conspiracy to some people. Did they run out of Prozac?
