Sickening Irony--Haiti earthquake came on Rush Limbaugh's birthday (political cartoonists take note)
Oh, the IronyHaiti Earthquake Came on Limbaughs Birthday

To all the political cartoonists out there, heres an idea for you:

Rush Limbaughs face, smug and content, hovers over a Haiti-shaped birthday cake. The frosting forms fallen buildings and unburied bodies. Two eyes peer out from a dark cavern deep in the rubble.

Limbaugh turned 59 on Tuesday.

1. Rush: The Compleat Republicon Chickenhawk Skinflint
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 09:47 AM by SpiralHawk
He's a draft dodger. He's a drug abuser. He is on Bent Knee to Kiss Ass and make shit up for his corporate bosses. He has a contract for $400 million. And he refuses to part with a centavo to help the injured, sick, dying, thirsty and hungry. Rush is the Compleat Republicon.

No wonder the republicons have chosen him to be their leader. He embodies all their 'Family Values.'

2. It was the best present God could've given him.
And the international rescue effort just ruined it.

3. So HAITI made a deal with the devil?
Rush is the one living like he made a deal with the devil.

4. I just read your thread title aloud to my kids- and one of them said
"that's why he so pissed, they stole his spotlight"

While it's too simplistic-(Rush's thinking is far more twisted than that) I think it's probably partially true.

What a sad example of a human being he is.

6. Roger Ebert nailed it...
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 11:07 AM by civildisoBDence
he ripped Rush and ended his column:

You have a sizable listening audience. You apparently know how to please them. Anybody given a $400 million contract must know what he is doing.

That's what offends me. You know exactly what you're doing.

Here's Ebert's letter to Limbaugh.

7. good letter- I rather be
dead than be Rush Limbaugh.

What a terrible fate that would be. He may have all kinds of monetary, and physical comforts, as well as large 'following'- but he is a disgusting human being and his disciples are fools-

8. Now there will be more sex slaves for Rush to chose from
Horrible people use these disasters to kidnap people.

Rush traveled to the Dominican Republic when he was caught with all that viagra...
