Folks, Rush Limbaugh likes to tell us he is the "great truth detector." Rush also claims to be an example of patriotism who exhibits a high degree of moral behavior. Rush Limbaugh has nothing to do with truth and morals, nor is he an example of patriotic behavior.
Rush Limbaugh evaded serving his country at a time when it needed him. By getting his private doctor to state he had a pilonidal cyst on his bottom and needed a 4f (unfit for military service), Rush avoided the Vietnam war. Allegedly, he had either an "anal cyst" or a "ingrown hair follicle".
Just imagine the dripping scorn and merciless sarcasm Rush would unleash, with the revelation that a prominent Democrat had skipped out of a war, over something like that.
Friends, Rush Limbaugh is a highly paid propagandist and self-serving demagogue, in the service of a radical right-wing sect. Limbaugh regularly feeds his audience a diet of lies, disinformation, misstatements and distortions. He is part of a cabal of pundits, commentators, and "reporters"-call it the Limbaugh-Hannity-Drudge axis. This fifth column in the forth estate is made up of propagandists pretending to be journalists. Through multiple overlapping outlets covering radio, television, and the Internet, they relentlessly force-feed the American people right-wing talking points and ultraconservative dogma disguised as news and infotainment-24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Even with the hot air and relentless rhetoric from propagandists such as Rush Limbaugh, events have landed President George W. Bush firmly out of favor with mainstream America. Still, Rush infers (of course) that everybody who doesn't approve of Bush's performance and policies, is some sort of unpatriotic-America-hating traitor.
Clearly, Rush Limbaugh/Bush-Cheney, are disingenuous and dangerous extremists, with an agenda that conflicts with mainstream America.
