Still 'a big, fat idiot'

When Tom Brokaw asked Colin Powell on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” about those who would suggest his endorsement of Barack Obama is race-based, the former secretary of state said:

“If I had only had that in mind, I could have done this six, eight, 10 months ago. I really have been going back and forth between somebody I have the highest respect and regard for, John McCain, and somebody I was getting to know, Barack Obama. And, it was only in the last couple of months that I settled on this.

“And, I can't deny that it will be a historic event for an African-American to become president. And, should that happen, all Americans should be proud - not just African-Americans, but all Americans - that we have reached this point in our national history where such a thing could happen. It will also not only electrify our country, I think it'll electrify the world.”

“I just want to button this up, because the Drive-Bys had a tizzy over my allegation that his nomination was about race. Well, let me say it louder, and let me say it even more plainly: it was totally about race! The Powell nomination, or endorsement, IT WAS TOTALLY ABOUT RACE!”

- Rush Limbaugh, radio talk show host, 20 October 2008.

Sigh.

Gen. Powell’s reasons for endorsing Obama are clear enough and can be found in yesterday’s post.

Rush Limbaugh just doesn’t want his Dittoheads to hear or understand them.

After all, his devotees got that nickname from calling into his radio show and saying, “Ditto, Rush.”

Florida had bumper stickers "Flush Rush." I guess he's so bloated he just clogged the commodes. That's why he keeps spewing so much sewage. All that Oxycontin burned what little brain power he might have had.

You just can't fix stupid!

Chris Mathews guest pointed out that even Rush L. knows what he says is not true. It's all part of the carnival show. He and Ann Coulter are only opportunists like any other shock jock.

The trouble is that their play book insights violence. They greatly reduce the level of integrity in politics from low too very, very low.

When Ann, and Ruch, are successful we have some Republicans in the crowds at rallies for Palin yelling "Kill him" about Obama. Who's the Terrorist?"

I think there is something in listening to the message of these folks, and repeating it, that serves them. Better at this point to look at Obama's 10 point lead. People out there may be seeing the light, much better to swim toward that light.

Let's see now, kicked off of "Monday Night Football" for racist remarks, that's one. How about his illegal acquisition of prescription drugs eh what? That's two, for sure.
Frodo wonders if Barack Obama were to serve on the Board of some philanthropic organization with him would Sarah Palin accuse him of "palling around" with a known bigot and junkie?
