Something Someone Else Said

"You know, a couple of days after the health care bill had been signed into law Obama ran around all over the country saying, “Hey, you know, I’m looking around. The earth hadn’t opened up. There’s no Armageddon out there. The birds are still chirping.” I think the earth has opened up. God may have replied. This volcano in Iceland has grounded more airplanes — airspace has more affected — than even after 9/11 because of this plume, because of this ash cloud over Northern and Western Europe. At the Paris airport they’re telling people to head to the train station to catch trains out of France, and when people get to the train station they’re telling people, “There aren’t any seats until at least April 22nd,” basically a week from now. It’s got everybody in a shutdown. Earth has opened up. I don’t know whether it’s a rebirth or Armageddon. Hopefully it’s a rebirth, God speaking." -Rush Limbaugh.

The de facto leader of the Republican party, ladies and gentlemen. A couple of days ago I remarked to a friend in jest that the right will try to find some way to blame the Icelandic volcano eruption and subsequent ash plume on President Obama and we had a good laugh at the absurdity of that statement. This is why I now call the right in this country caricatures of their former selves.

They're getting more absurd as each day passes. They know they've lost their grip and are in their final death throws. And the sooner those paranoid loonies are out of here, the better.

I hope you're right, Leslie. My only concern is that if the economy goes south between now and November people might buy into this Party of No mentality.

So, that volcano in Iceland was the result of Obama's awesome power? Watch out Rushbo. All the gays could do was drown New Orleans.

Why does anyone listen to that besotted sybarite?

He says the volcano that disrupted Europe and Scandinavia is God's judgment on Obama's health care reform?

It's too bad stupidity isn't painful.
