We've all known the great melt-down was coming - and I think it's finally arrived. Rush Limbaugh has decided that since all those dirty f*ggot hippie Libruls are out to get him, he'll just attempt a devastating first strike.
Unfortunately his mouth, just like his poor little viagra powered pecker is firing blanks.
On the April 16 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh called Media Matters for America "Stalinist" and part of the "Clinton machine agenda." He further falsely asserted that Media Matters receives funding from philanthropist George Soros and that he is "not demeaning people on this program in any way."
Doesn't demean anyone - what about his little Michael J. Fox Dance? What about when he said that seperating Survivor contestants into tribes based on race was unfair because "blacks can't swim"? Or when he said some women would "love to be hired as eye candy"?
No, that's not demeaning or anything..
The following comment is where he really jumped the shark, when he suggested that Imus' firing was all Hillary Clinton's fault.
Limbaugh asserted that syndicated radio host Don Imus was fired because he was "critical of [Sen.] Hillary [Clinton (D-NY)]," and added, "This is an election year. Clinton Inc., you get on their case, they're going to take you out."
And he wasn't done...
This is an election year. Clinton Inc., you get on their case, they're going to take you out. They're going to do what they can to marginalize you or do whatever. I've seen a couple stories I was reading over the weekend, that the Clinton team saw their opportunity. And when I say the Clinton team, I include Media Matters for America, this supposed tax-exempt media watchdog group. It's just an arm of the Democrat Party. They have an agenda. They are tax-exempt, and they're doing nothing but advancing a political agenda. And they are George Soros-funded. This is clearly part of the Democrat Party machine.
I find all of this just so highly ironic because Media Matters first of all doesn't receive any funding what so ever from Soros. Second, it is founded and run by David Brock - who used to be part of a right-wing Conservative attack operation funded by Richard Mellon-Scaife to Attack the Clinton's all during the 90's.
In his book, "Blinded By the Right", Brock describes faxing talking points TO LIMBAUGH for him to repeat about Anita Hill.
Brock also used to be close friends with Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter and on page 196 says...
Through my lawyer friend Ann Coulter, I saw a deeper level of partisan scheming and political manipulation in the Jones case, which Coulter herself later described as "a small, intricately knit right-wing consipiracy."- Advertisement -
Brock gradually had a change of heart about being involved in that "intricately knit" group and their tactics. So much so that he eventually conveyed Coulters' words to Hillary Clinton as he was writing a biography on her. Brock who was actually part of the conspiracy is where Hillary got her "Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy" line.
Brock is intimately familiar with the smear tactics employed by the right and via Media Matters has dedicated himself to fighting against them. He isn't particular liberal, rather he's an anti-Conservative - who meticulously documents and points out all their lies and distortions one at a time.
He has nothing, what-so-ever, to do with the Clinton campaign.
