Thanks, Colin, I no longer feel like I'm taking crazy pills

The following excerpt was taken from here:

[Powell] blasted radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, saying he does not believe that Limbaugh or conservative icon Ann Coulter serve the party well. He said the party lacks a "positive" spokesperson. "I think what Rush does as an entertainer diminishes the party and intrudes or inserts into our public life a kind of nastiness that we would be better to do without," Powell said.

Well said, well said.

{today was probably one of the most craziest days that i've ever had at work. hope you all had a lovely day. i'll be back tomorrow.}


I will now post Rush's reply to Powell's statement (though with reticence, because his statements are truly so idiotic that they make me want to throw something) to illustrate the idea that as long as Republicans listen to his drivel, I won't be affiliated with the party. Read it and see it here:

Today on his radio show, Limbaugh responded by calling Powell “just another liberal.” Limbaugh said Powell should “close the loop” and leave the Republican party instead of “claiming” to be interested in reforming it. Additionally, Limbaugh reiterated his previous claim that Powell endorsed Obama only because of his race:

LIMBAUGH: [Powell] is out there saying I am killing the republican party while he endorsed and voted for Obama. … He’s just mad at me because I’m the one person in the country who had the guts to explain his endorsement of Obama. It was purely and solely based on race! There can be no other explanation for it. What Colin Powell needs to do is close the loop and become a Democrat instead of claiming to be a Republican interested in reforming the Republican party.

Limbaugh concluded, “The only reason to endorse Obama is race. I don’t think Powell thought he could get away without with not endorsing Obama. … So I don’t care.”

I mean really? REALLY? He is actually going to sit there and assert something that asinine? About Colin Powell? First, he declares that Powell is a liberal, but then declares that the only reason Powell voted for Obama was because of race? Isn't that a bit contradictory? Glad he's earning that 45 mil a year. Driving the GOP into the ground. Blech.

It's sad but very true. Too bad the radios, news corporations, tv stations, and ISPs will all be nationalized and controlled by the government before the Republicans can find a decent spokesperson.

In the words of one of my besties, this guy is the King of Douche-baggery.

Rush straight up creeps me out.
