According to the Dignity Index in this week’s Newsweek, Georgia Representative Phil Gingrey told Rush Limbaugh to pipe down. Then, the poor man had to “grovel for forgiveness” becasue of the heat he took for it.
So, our great country has truly, truly lost its collective mind. We’re going to give someone crap because he had the nerve, honor, brains and courage to stand up to this country’s biggest no knowing blowhard?
Did I wake up in the USSR?
Let’s face it, “folks”, Rush’s days are numbered. Anyone who has been listening to him for the last twenty years has to realize that he’s just running scared. His “I hope he fails” and his creepy and unAmerican idea that any Republican who works with Obama isn’t a real Republican is proving more and more that he’s out of touch with reality and what America needs.
In case you’re wondering what Representative Gingrey said, I’m posting it below:
“It’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders.” — source Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The man has a point. Right now, the “right” is in trouble. Their old ways of “small” government and tax cuts isn’t going to get us out of the mess we’ve gotten ourselves into over the last eight years. We’re going to have to join together and work on fixing the country the best we can. Over the last sixteen years, we’ve neglected our infrastructure and over the last eight years, we’ve wasted the surplus we once had. Our issues won’t be solved over night, but if we don’t work together — they won’t be solved at all.
Jerks like Limbaugh really don’t want the nation’s issues to be fixed. They live for the divisions morons like him have worked to create. On top of that, they would rather sacrifice America’s future than be proven wrong or even admit there might be a better way.
Remember that the next time the windbag appears on your radio — he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about you or me or this country. He cares about ratings.
