Chicago Sun-Times Columnist got on the wrong side of Rush Limbaugh when she took issue with Sarah Palin for inciting hate at her rallies. That’s got Rush’s underwear all bunged up. When he gets like this, then the name calling starts. Rush doesn’t have intellectual conversations, that would require knowing facts. Instead of contributing valuable information to his listeners, these quotes are his lame attempt at enlightenment: “Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.” Or, “The difference between Los Angeles and yogurt is that yogurt comes with less fruit.” Here is the doltish discourse from Rush on his radio talk show about the article she wrote.
“Mary Mitchell, a wuss, wimp columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times says that Sarah Palin should be censured. She says that ‘Sarah Palin should apologize to the Obama campaign and the American people for her role in bringing out the worst in her supporters.’ This is laughable.
“Come on, Mary. Grow up. This is the big leagues. How about the people in your party? I know you’re a Democrat, Mary Mitchell. You can’t deny it, all you liberal media people are Democrats. What about the incitement of this whole country that you and your fellow journalists have engaged in along with the Democrat Party? You have gendered up hate for this president. You have ginned up a despise for the US military. You have sought to convince the American people their country is worthless and sinking into an abyss. You have been doing it for six years.”
Limbaugh also called Mitchell a “racist nutball.”
So much for Mary being a wimp, she fired right back at him with an amusing response.
When you step on a pig’s tail, it squeals. Rush Limbaugh is a squealer. And why is he squealing? Because John McCain and Sarah Palin are losing ground in a contest that they thought was theirs.
And they are losing it to a black man. Of course, Limbaugh won’t say that. Instead, on Thursday he spent his time berating me for saying Palin needs to apologize for inciting crowds that hurled racial epithets at black members of the press.
I’m a “wuss, wimp columnist,” Limbaugh says. So why would a multimillion-dollar squealer use his air time on a “wuss and a wimp?”
The reason Limbaugh is squealing like the pig he is, is because he’s the epitome of white privilege. He can’t wrap his small mind around the fact that Barack Obama is kicking McCain’s butt in the polls.
To make matters worse, how dare a black woman ask a white woman who is on the GOP ticket to apologize for the inappropriate behavior of her supporters? But my position is really a no-brainer.
Whenever a crowd gets whipped up to the point that they turn ugly and start hurling racist insults, it is common sense that the candidate moves to rein it in. But McCain is so desperate to win, he’s feeding off of those angry crowds.
True to form, Rush Limbaugh lives up to my extremely low expectations. He will never come down from the ivory tower he has built, to acknowledge, what the plain facts are in the McCain-Palin rallies. I know better than to think, he has any altruistic thoughts of what would be in the best interest for the country.
Kudos Mary for giving it back to him.
