Who knows? Whatever his DNA composition might be, around here Rush Limbaugh is Swine of the Week in Perpetuity — meaning that when I pronounce someone SOTW, it’s an unfinished sentence the rest of which is “in addition to Rush Limbaugh”. And this past week was no different.
The GOP’s message to women as barfed out by its Intellectual & Spiritual Leader and Titular Head this week could not have been clearer: any woman who stands up for self-determination is a Slut. My own reaction to El Rushbo’s putrid rant was something like this:
A PigMan! It’s a PigMan!!
“And he made this horrible sound…” — indeed:
“She wants to be paid to have sex,” Limbaugh continued. “She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception.”
But that, incredibly, was not the depth of depravity Limbaugh sunk to that day, or even that quarter-hour. He went on to demand that Ms. Fluke post sex videos of herself online… “so we can all watch”.
BAM! The wheels of my little office chair spun angrily as I reeled back and threw up in my mouth a little, my imagination assaulted by grotesque visions of El Puerco and his flaccid, fascist cohorts slobbering over grainy videos and squealing angrily as they yanked at their withered and unresponsive knobs.
The horror, the horror…
Even if it was just for a nanosecond, in my own fevered imagination.
Speaking of Quarter-Hours: once upon a time I worked with the Media, and I’m excruciatingly familiar with the timetable of Arbitron radio surveys. And guess what: the last few weeks of the winter survey are upon us. Could it be that El Piggo’s ratings were swirling in the bowl so badly for the first few weeks that he needed to commit some outrage to jack them up? Naaahhhh…
No matter. Reams of pixels and pages have already been devoted to the latest ratings-ratcheting offense from this hideous Science Experiment of a man, so I will leave it to my Intellectual & Spiritual Leader to sum it up:
Rush Limbaugh is a lame professional Swine and he makes a good living at it. He is like a hired Geek in some traveling backwoods carnival — the freaks who bite the heads off Chickens — but Limbaugh is a modernized Geek who thinks he can bite the heads off of people.
I only wish the Good Doctor was still around to comment on the head-biting his “lame professional swine” continues to indulge in to this very day. Mahalo.
Blogging buddy Left Over wonders if this incident might be a kind of tipping point for the (admittedly small) part of Limbaugh’s audience that swims in the deeper end of the gene pool, causing them to recoil in disgust from His Piggishness. What do you think? I suspect most will just double down.
