I annoyed a Rush Limbaugh listener today
My neighbor has a tendency to blare his radio while he's working outside, which annoys me because I can even hear it inside our house.

So today, I go out to do some yard work, and there he is, blaring the radio again.

Rush Limbaugh was on.

I was literally able to anticipate, word-for-word, one caller's comment, because it was a typical talking point about Obama trying to take credit for killing Bin Laden. Then the fat blowhard spewed some crap about "Democrats don't WANT to kill terrorists." Not one word about Memorial Day, or honoring the troops. Of course, what would he know about this, having got out of the draft with the pus-filled boil on his ass....

I was so annoyed, I said to myself, fuck this shit.

So I proceeded to start mowing the lawn right near this guy and his radio. A neighbor across the street, seeing me do this, started mowing, as well. We were soon joined by a third (Republicans can't seem to think of stuff on their own, even yard care.) Soon, there's a cacophony of lawnmowers running around this guy and his radio.

As I mowed, I smiled at the delicious irony of Rush Limbaugh being drowned out by a "feminazi" like me, who started the whole racket by firing up my environmentally-friendly electric lawnmower.

:evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

1. There's only one episode of Rush's show I want to hear
The one where he clutches his chest, spits up blood, and dies on air.

Yeah, I said it, and I'm serious. And once he drops dead, people like your neighbor won't have someone to tell them how to think.

9. +1. I'm not proud of it, but I want to outlive the walking pilodinal cyst.
I despise no one like I despise Rush Limbaugh. He has been a ruinous influence on this nation and the world. No one else comes close to that shithead. Cheney, Hannity, Beck, Coulter - they all pale in comparison to that hate-filled gasbag.

We were born in the same year. I intend to outlive him. He's both a coward and a bully, and a pervert, as well. And his taste in decorating? Well. . . http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/02/rush-limbaughs...

13. Thank you for that link!
I've been wanting to show those pictures to some friends and family, but I'd forgotten to search for them.

Best of luck outliving Jabba The Rush. If you stay under 400 lbs and refrain from doping yourself until you lose your hearing, the odds are in your favor!

Well, maybe not.

There's the door if you don't agree.

2. Then time for a little electric leaf-blower action
And you should label the leaf-blower "Rushbo" on it's side, because it does blow hard!

4. It was probably a rerun, the OxyPig ever misses taking a holiday off.
Good for you, anyway. A pissed off conservative neighbor is to be enjoyed.

6. Come to think of it, I'm sure you're right
Being that Rush just spews the same shit day after day, he'd know that his listeners wouldn't know the difference between a new show and an old one.

7. I wonder if OxyRush has helped Joplin materially?



Limbaugh is a Missouri native and I would love to know if he donated any tangible assistance to the relief effort there. He could always say he "urged his listeners" to donate but that doesn't move one penny out of his own cheap ass pocket. Seems like with that $400 Million contract he could afford to help out his fellow Missourians a bit.

20. That fat fuck could rebuild Joplin with his pocket change!
But he needs that to support his drug habit.

10. LOL!
The subject line alone was enough to make me love this thread, but this is a classic:

"Republicans can't seem to think of stuff on their own, even yard care."

:rofl:

14. If Air America were still on, I definitely would
As it is, I might just make audio of some "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" shows I've recorded, and play that, instead!

17. I don't know about where you live ...




but where I live loud radio ordinances aren't enforced until after 11 pm. If this
is the case in your town crank it up full blast until just before enforcement time.


Good luck. :thumbsup:

19. We have no such ordinances, AFAIK
Everybody around here goes to bed around 8 or 9 pm, LOL.

I should've known this guy was a RW'er, back when he charged me too much for some work I hired him to do. That's the old Republican way. :mad:

21. Years ago I had a problem with loud music from a neighbor's yard
I brought my stereo to the porch and put on classical (which they definitely were not playing), oddly enough, it just seemed to take care of the situation.

22. If you have a laptop, take it outside and hook it up to an amp and two speakers.
Fire up Thom Hartmann's show from his site or from iTunes. Thom comes on the same time as fatso.

15. Molly Ivins on Limbaugh: "Lyin' Bully"
Edited on Mon May-30-11 04:33 PM by pnorman
"Satire is a weapon, and it can be quite cruel. It has historically been the weapon of powerless people aimed at the powerful. When you use satire against powerless people, as Limbaugh does, it is not only cruel, it's profoundly vulgar. It is like kicking a cripple."

16. You should start a thread with that quote
It pretty much sums up not just Limbaugh, but all of his ilk in all walks of life.

28. Oscar Wilde on Satire:
Edited on Mon May-30-11 07:46 PM by druidity33
"Satire should, like a polished razor keen, wound with a touch that's scarcely felt or seen"

If Satire is what Limbaugh does (and i doubt that, as Satire demands some understanding of wit)... he does it very poorly.


:shrug:




Edited for typing inadequacies...

24. I couldn't put up with it
I would've started mowing if our grass had been half an inch tall, just to drown out that fat slob's voice, LOL.

I have asked him to turn down his radio in the past, when it gets too loud. I'm not about to listen to that shit INSIDE my house.

29. " I was literally able to anticipate, word-for-word, one caller's comment"
remember a couple months ago when it was revealed that most of the callers to RW talkies were on the payroll.
I would guess that is why every caller sounds so - uh - scripted.
Thought you might want to remember that in case the neighbor says something, you can point out how Rushie's show is totally scripted.

32. When Rush said that "liberals want US soldiers to die in Iraq so that Bush's policy would fail,"
I realized that he was the enemy and would say literally anything to demonize us and our position.

He can't be reasoned with . . . he can only be crushed by any (legal) means necessary

35. I'm glad you posted this because I was listening to NPR's . . .
"Talk of the Nation" today and they had a segment honoring our veterans. I wondered what Limbaugh would be talking about today (I suspected it was what you said) and I wondered what all those people who hate liberals would think if they heard a minute-by-minute comparison of NPR and Limbaugh.

He doesn't have time to respect anyone other than hacks.
