Not So Grand Party



There is no rationalizing, justifying or explaining away the latest crude, vulgar and vile episode involving Rush Limbaugh. Only an individual that is crude, vulgar and vile himself would need to stoop to that level.

After appearing before Congress, Limbaugh said about Susan Fluke, ““What does it say about the college coed Susan Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex?”

That was a lie. She didn’t say that, she didn’t “essentially” say that. It’s just Limbaugh lying again. Then he added, “What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.”

The self-professed leader of the Republican Party can’t discuss the issue without taking it straight to the sewer with lies and crude, vulgar and vile name-calling.

After taking justifiable criticism for his actions, the next day Limbaugh went back on the air and added this comment,” So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.”

Rush Limbaugh is now encouraging, even promoting pornography. He wants sex tapes to be created. He wants to watch them, but he added “so we can all watch.”

Apparently Limbaugh is of the opinion that all good Republicans have a desire to view more pornography. Would that include the religious right?

They’ve been completely silent on commenting on Limbaugh’s choice of language, and judging of Susan Fluke. Maybe instead of a bake sale fundraiser they can schedule a porno night at the church. Rush Limbaugh would certainly approve of that, he’s already said he wants sex tapes to be created so that “we can all watch.”

He apparently knows his followers. Somehow the Grand Ol’ Party doesn’t seem so grand.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
