Hopeless jackass and Palm Beach county resident Rush Limbaugh
has a particularly ridiculous sound byte traveling around the internet
lately in which he's basically quoted as saying he doesn't want the
Obama doctrine to succeed. The quote came from an interview Limbaugh
did with Sean Hannity, in which Hannity asks the big guy, directly, if
he wants Obama to be a successful president. Granted, when the clip was
shown on the Daily Show,
Limbaugh's answer was presented out of context, making it look like he
straight up said, "I want Obama to fail." That's not entirely the case,
as you can see above, but that doesn't change the fact that the guy is
retarded. Socialized medicine will be the death of America as we know
it? Apparently Rush hasn't thought this one over enough. I mean, if
medicine is socialized he wouldn't have to work half as hard to cover
up his pill habits. Just tossing it out there. (Yes, I resorted to an
ad hominem attack. Deal with it.)
What does this have to do with
food, you ask? Well, it's recently become clear that Limbaugh's
brain-addled condition may have something to do with his upbringing
(after all, don't neo-cons like him believe being gay is nurture, not
nature? In that case, couldn't acute mental deficiencies be borne of
the same thing?) Short Order recently discovered, by way of the Village Voice, by way of the Kansas City Pitch, that Rush Limbaugh was abused as a child. No really! With food!
Take a look after the jump.
This is the sort of torture poor little Rushie had to endure.
out Rush's esteemed mother (or grandmother, if you believe one
commenter), Mrs. Rush H. Limbaugh Sr., was the equivalent of a Nazi
drill sergeant in the kitchen. Apparently Mrs. Limbaugh was renowned
for her cooking ability - or lack thereof - and was published in a
small-town cookbook. As a child, Little Limbaugh was undoubtedly
subjected to her despicable concoctions such as the following: Under the Sea Salad.
Shit, that explains a lot.
The original posters went so far as to recreate that "salad"
- chock full of such time-honored combinations as Jell-O, olives, and
cream cheese - with the express purpose of finding out what life as an
8-year-old Rush might have been like. And folks, that life sucked. I
would've ran from that woman like a conservative from confessional if I
was in that kid's shoes. I actually feel for the guy now.
If you look in the comments from the gang who tried the experiment, you'll notice our editor, Eric Barton, was among them. He actually says (key word says) he liked
it. Looks like I'm going to have to turn down that invitation to dinner
at your place after all, Eric. Something, er... came up.
