Limbaugh Wins A Crackpot Chronicles Lifetime Achievement Award

Well if you ever listened to Limbaugh, you had to wonder...is he on drugs? I mean he was more incoherent than the Wolfman! Busted, Rush!

I really like these last two paragraph's of Bill Berkowitz's article on WorkingFor
Change.com
, which I purloined from Alternet.
I'm not a certified television gas bag, but I'm expecting the following things to happen: Regarding his racist comments, Limbaugh will claim he was only exercising his First Amendment rights and he will use his radio pulpit to launch a crusade around free speech issues; right-wing Republicans will close ranks around Limbaugh, beginning with discrediting the messenger – the National Enquirer – and then claiming that Bill and Hillary Clinton are behind the revelations; and the Rev. Jerry Falwell, Dr. James Dobson and Pat Robertson will spring to Limbaugh's defense and offer 'round-the-clock prayers on his behalf.

Years ago, popular televangelist Jimmy Swaggart was brought down when he was found to have been cavorting for years with prostitutes; Jim Bakker served time in the pen, lost his multi-million dollar religious empire, and his wife Tammy Faye, as a result of a series of sex scandals and fraudulent business activities; William Bennett, the self-appointed maven of morality, has thankfully been silenced after it was revealed that he had/has a major gambling jones. Now we find that Limbaugh has been hopped up on pills for several years. What's next? There never were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?
