Blogging Tory Mathew Siscoe does what Blogging Tories do -- makes an ass of himself:
On the Limbaugh 'controversy'
You know, it's weird - I've heard a couple of different 'pundits' on CNN exclaim that they just don't understand why Rush Limbaugh is saying what he's saying. That this is supposed to be a time of unity, and that it's wrong for Rush to be saying the things he's saying about wanting Obama to fail.
Putting aside the fact that I think Rush Limbaugh is a blowhard, where the heck do these people get off? Just because the President says it's time to get past partisan rhetoric doesn't mean everyone has to start bowing at the alter of the Obamamessiah. I think the President understand that, but the media seems to be of the opinion that if you criticize Obama you're some sort of demon.
And I thought dissent was patriotic?
Here's a thought, Mathew. When you point out that you disagree with President Chimpy McChimpster because there's no evidence for WMDs, and that an invasion will simply inflame the Mid-East and promote terrorism, and will inevitably kill countless civilians not to mention put American troops at risk, and is in a whole lot of ways a really, really bad idea, that's "dissent."
When you're a waddling, fat fuck of a serial divorcee and drug addict who simply announces that you want Obama to fail, that's not dissent -- that's being a waddling, fat fuck of a serial divorcee and drug addict who's a traitor and hates America.
I'm glad I could explain the difference.
