There are certain words in the English language that some use indicriminatly without really thinking about the exact meaning. Take asshole for instance. Some may bandy it around among friends, some may use it to be mean and spiteful. Which ever way you use it an asshole is nothing I'd want to be referred to as. If you want to get specific it's the orifice where human waste leaves the body. You can call me a bitch but don't call me an asshole.
That title is reserved for the biggest one of all.

I purposely didn't post this rant when it happened thinking maybe his comments were misconstrued but as time's gone by he stands by them so here goes... I cannot stomach this man for what he stands for and the statements he makes. His remarks regarding the earthquake in Haiti are truly over the top. In case you haven't heard them he stated that,

"Everything this president sees is a political opportunity, including Haiti and he will use it to burnish his credentials with minorities in this country and around the world and to accuse republicans of having no compassion."

and if that wasn't enough he says,

"This will play right into Obama's hands. He's humanitarian, compassionate. They'll use this to burnish their shall we say "credibility" with the black community-in both the light and dark-skinned black community. It's made to order for them."

Why in light of this disaster is Limbaugh trashing the United States' efforts to help and accusing Obama of using the crisis for political gain. How is this a political thing? I don't understand how a person can be so right wing, so closed minded as to criticize anyone whose views don't mimic his. The scary thing is millions follow this man and take his opinions as their own. Look at his home boy George W. Bush. He put his head in the sand with the Hurricane Katrina disaster. No criticism there but maybe that was because of the ethnicity of the people affected by that disaster. Is Limb a racist? I tend to think so.

Limbaugh's tirade continued when he insulted a caller to his show who dared to call him out on his poisonous assertions calling her a blockhead with tampons in her ears. He's denounced the president for helping the Haitians for his own agenda but let's turn the tables, isn't he doing the same thing here? Using this disaster to promote his own special brand of hate.

Jon Stewart got it right when he said "I think I know the cause of your heart trouble: you don't have one."
