Sorry to have to tell you this, GOP Americans, but Limbaugh is wrong about almost everything that's going on, on Planet Earth. He's wrong, for instance, when it comes to the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, the science of global climate change, the Bible, the science of Evolution, nutritional science, exercise science, sports, and anything else he chooses to pontificate about. That's why he hides behind a caller dump button.

Then there was this, just the other day from the "pervert, perverting the Constitution". From the January 6, 2011, Rush Limbaugh Show, in a segment titled " Don't Bother Sending Your Kids to New York to be Union Stagehands":

You mentioned Cloward-Piven. The purpose of Cloward-Pivenis to overload the welfare system. Just overload it. It can't survive. It totally crashes. Nobody has anything. You have total chaos. You have anarchy, because nobody has anything. Because without anybody working, nobody having a job, there's nothing produced and there's nothing to transfer, and nobody has anything. The people expecting to live off government largesse, there isn't anyway. The people expecting to live off Social Security, welfare, there isn't any if you take Cloward-Piven out to its natural conclusion. And during all this you have these people who say, "The government is good! It is the only good." They'll do nothing but rely on government

Here's the question that America needs to ask itself, even if there is no evidence that the Tucson shooting is tied to the these three wingnut ringmasters. While their separate, individual messages may not be "inciting" a bloody Revolution, could their combined message have that effect. Let's look at a brief, digest of that combined message looks like.

Beck sets the stage for modern acceptable revolution:

"Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine"

Palin advocates for the 2nd Amendment and targeting "Obamacare-lovin' incumbent seats":

"Don't Retreat, Instead - RELOAD!" . . .

"Remember months ago "bullseye" icon used 2 target the 20 Obamacare-lovin' incumbent seats? We won 18 out of 20 (90% success rate;T'aint bad)"

Limbaugh ties it all together with the sounds of Armageddon:

Just overload it. It can't survive. It totally crashes. Nobody has anything. You have total chaos. You have anarchy, because nobody has anything.

Of course, Limbaugh is saying that the blood will be on the hands of those gol darn libruls, because it is they, the gol darn libruls, that started all this with their nanny state, busy body, Obamacare.

These three clowns can kid themselves all they want. The truth is, that these three stooges may indeed be the Thomas Paine like catalyst that stirs America to Revolution, but the idea that theirs will be an unarmed, peaceful Revolution, when it happens, is ridiculous, irresponsible, and wishful thinking.
