OK...OK.... I listened to Rush for a few minutes... I know....WHY?


Because now I understand why his minions are so fucked up and confused.

First.... “Online Trading Academy”..?? That’s the sponsor. Seemingly, of not only Rush, but of the whole radio station in Seattle. Sounds like “Fleece the Suckers” as far as I can tell. Nobody makes money day trading.... unless to sell the idea to the suckers. The other sponsors are for testosterone clinics and local businesses that don't mind being tarred with the RW brush.

Next... I can’t tell who the “Republican establishment” wants for the Repub presidential candidate, since Rush seems to think that everybody - including Trump - isn’t who the Establishment wants. Rush seems to think they all are not conservatively Pure enough.
Medved and some of the other Talking Turds are against Trump, but I can’t tell if Rush is. That weasel is weaseling all over the place.

Finally, Rush seems to be saying that NObody is conservative enough. He said that when Goldwater ran in 1964, he was the Repub establishment candidate, and not a true conservative. (Wasn’t Goldwater known as “Mr. Conservative”?) Goldwater was defeated, but the unhappiness in the Repub voters about Goldwater led to the Reagan Revolution and the triumph of conservative values.(!) Rush feels the Repubs have to get back to conservative values, and none of the current crop fit that description. 

J. F. C. .... my neck is sore from trying to follow all the twists and turns in that corkscrew logic(?).

The little pea-brains that listen to him must be SO confused. I like what he’s selling... Keep going to the right, Repubs. No... further yet! You’ll win eventually!

I’m going to shower now... and use a LOT of soap. That shit can’t be good for your mental and physical health.

Been more than a year since I sat through a work day with Rushbo on in the background. Former boss had a man crush on Rush. At some point almost all his sponsors dumped him and about the only guests he could get were Fox employees. I don't think he even gets guests now.

They practice at having short memories. No need for memory, there is a new crisis every week to fire up the masses. Never mind if that completely refutes what they said last month.

We are at war with East Asia. We have always been at war with East Asia. The chocolate ration (which was reduced from 12 to 8 grams last week) has been raised to 10 grams. Long live Big Brother!

He is literally wishy washy on it.

It is incredible to listen to his rambling nonsensical purity and victimization verbal diarrhea, isn't it?
