Let’s talk about Limbaugh……a hit piece

This is another one of those easy ones.  It feels cheap because it’s it’s so goddamn obvious.  Still, I’m happy to run with it because Rush Hudson Limbaugh is easily the biggest asshole ever to grace American media.

I have referred to him affectionately as “The Human Shitsmear” for years.  Picture the amber stain in your white Calvins or if you go commando, that faint greasy brown swath up the back  of your jeans that inspires you to turn them inside out before laundering them.  Rush Limbaugh.  Human Shitsmear.  He lies, without shame, without conscience and without ever being held accountable.  He lies.

Lying and the art thereof, falls under the purview of morality, as opposed to the ethical, as it does and should when done under oath.  Much to my chagrin, I have trouble recognizing a distinction.  It’s only a bad thing when you lie after promising not to?  Anyway, Rush Hudson Limbaugh is a world champion fabulist.

I listen to him.  I honestly do.  This Sunday morning, the local station recaps his blunderbuss of bullshit for the weekends, I heard him say that 43% of the stimulus has been spent and the democratic party will be using the rest of the money for their re-election campaigns in the fall.  He actually said that.  I heard him say it.

That’s complete crap and he knows it.

He lies.

I have plenty to say about the Human Shitsmear.

I love the audacity of his branding himself “The EIB, (Excellence In Broadcasting) network.  Him and his gold plated EV RE20 microphone.  He is exceptionally adept at what he does.  He has talent.  Nevermind that his talent is wasted on the hopelessly stupid.  As an ad libber he is unparalleled.  Extraordinaire.  He makes it up as he goes with such conviction that the dumb, slack jawed, great unwashed can’t help but believe him.  He lies.  He said that Obama had not met with the head of BP, Tony Hayward because Hayward was white.  I heard him say that too.  He’s a pompous, sociopathic fathead that stops just short of buying his own pant load of poisonous, odoriferous, runny Hormel excrete…(my apologies to Hormel).

The bile he spews everyday is racist, bigoted, chauvinist, homophobic, hypocritical, self aggrandizing flatulence.  He cloaks himself in jingoism.  He wraps himself in an American flag so moth eaten and full of holes, it would be unrecognizable to any thinking, aware, compassionate human being.  He has repeatedly maligned celebrities for succumbing to addiction when he himself cultivated such an advanced enslavement to OxyContin that he nearly lost his hearing and recruited his own household help to acquire it.  He pimped his servants for the purpose of acquiring drugs.  He pimped his doctors.

“Kurt Cobain was, ladies and gentlemen, a worthless shred of human debris.”

“Columbus saved the Indians from themselves.”

To a black caller: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”

“He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He’s moving all around and shaking and it’s purely an act… This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn’t take his medication or he’s acting.”


I call him The Human Shitsmear.  Beause he Lies.

He’s been doing it for decades:  http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=1895

Or check out “Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot” by the lovely Al Franken.

Morally and ethically bereft.

See, his core message is that Obama’s agenda is to destroy America.  Whether it’s retribution for slavery or because he’s some nightmare Muslim, communist, terrorist.  Whatever sticks, it doesn’t matter.  Now I disagree with my President on a myriad of things but I do believe he’s one earnest man.  He does his best.  And Rush Hudson, “The Human Shitsmear” Limbaugh, is a goddamn dirty lying bastard.  Obama is not on this earth to destroy this country.  That’s a fucking lie and and this fat irresponsible prick knows it.

See, what really chaps my ass is that I somehow own that he knows exactly what he’s doing.  Fooling some of the people all of the time.  Disgusting.

If you listen to this guy and you believe a single word he says, you’re an idiot.  A lost cause.  I’m not talking to you and I’m not writing this for your benefit.  You are proof of the 1/4 paradigm.  Common sense and logic are lost on you.  The 1/4 paradigm are those that still supported Nixon after he was forced to resign.   The 25% percent who still believed in the idiot Dumbya when he left office and the rest of us in a shitstorm.  You people are incurably stupid.  You still think Jesus Christ will be here to save you personally before you die.  I’m not talking to you.  As far as I’m concerned, you people are worthless human stains who’s only potential contribution to anything at all would be polluting the gene pool.

And you do.  You reproduce without thought and it really worries me.  A whole ‘nother round headed generation of thick tongued, uneducated, bible thumping backward ass morons.

This is all been great fun.  I’d debate the slow eyed prick bastard any day of the week.  Seriously, at a moments notice I’d take him on, and if were allowed to talk, I’d destroy him.  I would wipe the airwaves with him and I’m by no means an exception.  Just about any one of the 95% percent of Americans that don’t listen to him could acquit themselves quite nicely if given the opportunity.  We all know that’s not going to happen; callers with an opposing point of view on the “EIB” network are about as common as OxyContin addicts in the mesozoic era.

But the point is this.  He’s dangerous.  Because of him and egregious assholes of his ilk, we have a bunch of mouth breathing idiots walking around calling themselves the Tea Party.  We have Sharron Angle and Rand Paul and a growing number of oxygen starved brains that are willing to resort to violence because of an ideology that they haven’t the capacity to even grasp.  Forgive them for they know not what they do?  Fuck that!  These fuckers are retarded and the Human Shitsmear makes a living by exploiting and emboldening them.

Here’s the deal and the devil at the same time.  He wins because the rest of us pay too much attention.  The most logical course of action with a stalker or any brand of sociopath, is to ignore.  Any attention afforded only fuels the fire.  I love Olbermann and Ed Schultz et al. but, Rush Limbaugh is a fuckhead and so are the people who follow him.  Write those goofcocks off.  No way any hearts or minds or going to be changed there.  They are the mentally handicapped.  Unable or unwilling to think for themselves and all too inclined to let a semi clever reptile do what they honor as the intellectual heavy lifting.  They will listen and follow and worship, no matter what.

Let him have his little universe.  What would America be like with a blackout of all things Shitsmear?  Think about it.  A much better place.  Fuck this piece of shit.  Shut him down and shut him out.  Pay no attention.  Keep moving.  Nothing to see here.

Crackheads will be crackheads and will sooner or later overdose on crack and there is not a thing we can do about it.

His particular genius is that he baits us.  Again and again, He offends and appalls the rational and the aware.  He lies.  He commands our attention by virtue of sheer outrageousness.  The oldest and most despicable trick in the book. So, understand that without that, he is exclusive to the margin. Consigned to them.  The dipshits.  The asstards.  The Hannity’s, Becks, Coulters and Levins.  They are substantial in number but they are the fringe.

They are not America.

They are all, fucking liars.

Only through the outrage they generate, do they matter at all.  The lies they tell, stir the cognizant far more than the great unwashed.  Remember that.

I will never ever, mention the human Shitsmear again.

Drinks for my friends.


If you enjoyed this blog, I really recommend you read the comments, not the ones where folks agree with me, I love and appreciate them but that would be boring.  As of this writing, the last comment is a transcript of me spanking the brain of some moron on facebook that is the quintessential example of the “1/4 Paradigm” that I reference in so many of my blogs including this one.  It’s really a lot of fun.  I hope you check it out.

    You, Sir are 1000% correct. Thank you for a very needed diversion from my long evening working…I took a break and checked Facebook…there was a link to your article, and I’m glad I clicked it- very good read, intelligent, thought provoking…and something more Liberals need to utilize…angry…;)

    If you ever need any political artwork (I am an illustrator for a living) drop me a line…bookmarking your main page as soon as I post this.

    Thanks again…

    • Michael Douglass:

      Thanks man. Sorry so late responding. The progressive needs ANGER. There’s plenty to be pissed about.

  • Yep. I got the link from FB, too. Glad I did. I used to listen to Limbaugh when he was new on the national airwaves. I thought he was funny. Little did I know, the jerk was serious. Maybe, way back when, he wasn’t. It didn’t take too long before I saw the hate behind the humor. That’s when I tuned out. Based on what I’ve been hearing for the last several years, he’s getting more hateful all the time. Amazing what fame and its resultant power will do, isn’t it?

    • Michael Douglass:

      I used to think he was funny too. He probably did think of himself as an entertainer, but the hate has eclipsed all of it. Thanks for reading.

  • Linda:

    “The lies they tell, stir the cognizant far more than the great unwashed.”

    I sure hope you are right about that. Sometimes I am not so optimistic.

  • Rod:

    Absolutely freakin’ awesome. Unless you’ve already eviscerated him, I blissfully await your comments on Glenn Beck.

  • Dragynn:

    Bread and circuses my friend….most days I doubt that these idiots believe even a fraction of the crap they spew, which makes it even that much more offensive. Beck in particular (and i’ve only seen his dog-and-pony show a couple of times, there’s only so much I can take) is frequently choking back laughter, watch him closely, he doesn’t buy into his own nonsense, he’s just milking the sheep for all he can get while he can get it.

    Limbaugh and Coulter use the tried-and-true shock-jock technique of blurting out the most offensive thing they can possibly imagine, and appealing to the lowest, most base and disgusting elements of human nature, horrific and pointless hatred, the vile garbage left over from our most primitive and violent past that the humane human race has been trying to rid itself of for the last 5000 years of history.

    Murderers, liars, torturers and thieves, this is what they look like America, they are on your radio and your TV and in your airports and most recently in your White House for 8 dark years, and they are doing unspeakable acts to innocent people, over a thousand years since the “dark” ages ended, and we have allowed our country to return to them in little more than a decade…..

    I’ll take that drink now Michael, make mine a triple-shot with a little hope on the side please.

  • jidick:

    Although your comment is very colorful in style, you have, I believe, embelished the full extent of most, if not all, of Faux News broadcasters. I, also, have not sided with all of Obama’s decisions but, he is the President of our United States and should be shown the respect as any other President has been given. Nobody, has all the answers to everything! And these fringe nuts think so highly of President Obama, that they believe he has the answers to everything!!!

    • Michael Douglass:

      Embellish the full extent of Faux news broadcasters? Um, what?
      If he could walk on water, they’d accuse him of not being able to swim.

  • Bob Chenoux:

    But when the sun comes up tomorrow he’ll still be wealthy, pwerful, influential, sucessful Rush.

    And you’ll still be…nobody

    Are you alright with that?

    • Michael Douglass:

      I’m allright with myself if that’s what you’re asking. I’m not nobody, are you? I’d rather be me than him……..


    hit the streets

  • Jeremy Frazee:

    Thanks, now we can all be done with wasting anymore time on the idiots right? Nuff said.
    Pointing out the flaws in logic of the far right is easier than shooting the dead.

    On the other hand, we do have the Yes Men to fix the world right?


  • Julia:

    As usual Michael…GREAT PIECE!!!

  • You give Rush too much credit. Curt Cobain said it best “I’d rather be hated for who I am then loved for who I am not.” Rush is a pathetic piece of shit allright and to identify with him or like him means you are one too. To the misguided sole who said Rush was rich and successful. You are half right. And if your barometer for success is money then you are no better. If Rush is so great then why is he too afraid to publish his listenership numbers? He’s like the tea partiers: they yell louderr but there numbers don’t represent a significant number of Americans. It’s like when Sarah spoke at the Tea Party convention. Only one person reported that Palin spoke to 600 hundred people. Then Fox posted fake news stories at her book signing and conservative Website Newsmax bought 55,000 copies as a “promotional item.”. Please it’s all fake and those swindled by are just as awful and stupid. But everyone in America pays the price.

  • Michael Douglass:

    Case in in point from Facebook:

    @Michael, Odd thing. If you insert Olbermann where it says Limbaugh in your little blog post, it actually becomes factual. Great sourcing by the way. Al Franken (who won his Senate race thanks to the convicted felon vote) & FAIR.”

    My reply to Chris DeBello:

    “I challenge you here on your page to provide just one example of either one of them getting caught lying. You sir, are about to be painfully embarrassed on your own page. Your not talking to the mouth breathing retards you’re used to hanging out with. You’re dealing with the informed. Now, bring it! Put up or shut the fuck up!

    Anybody want to bet that when he can’t, he won’t say a word but he will delete me?

    Every time Coleman objected by filing suit etc, the count went further in Franken’s favor. Leave it to a brainless whining conservative to just make shit up like “the convicted felon vote”.

    Besides you moron, I didn’t source Franken or his book, I merely recommended it. If you actually read the blog you’d know two things that you don’t now know, the sources are at the end of each appropriate passage and the blog clearly states that’s it’s not written for clueless idiots like you.

    People like you are what’s wrong with this country.

    Now go home and get your fucking shinebox!”

    Mr DeBello replies:

    Chris DeBello
    ?”@Michael Your lack of social skills is only surpassed by your lack of civility. I’ve yet to come across a conversation with a Kool-Aid drinker who couldn’t resort to profanity in order to gloss over their lack of weight for their comedy routine.

    I could list many lies by Franken but I also know that whatever I present, you’ll simply disparage the… See More source and you’re just not worth that much of my time. A simple Google search of Al Franken lie will give anyone that wants to know the truth a full menu of facts to choose from.

    Normally I would delete a foul mouth crude little person such as yourself, but you actually serve a purpose. Just like a disease filled lab rat, you show how much damage a virus can do to a mind.”

    My Reply:

    “Michael Douglass
    Chris, you couldn’t do what I challenged you to do. I said prove one lie either Olbermann or Maddow has told because that is what YOU posited. But for that Matter, throw me one that Franken told or disprove one lie that I hold Limbaugh responsible for……you can’t do any of them.

    I’m waiting…….but not holding my breath. You are on the wrong side of foolish. And did my profanity and conviction make your poor little conservative vagina sore, or was it my FACTS you retard?

    And yes, by all means, leave this up so all your friends can watch you cry because you got NOTHING!!!”

    Mr DeBello replies:

    Chris DeBello
    “Thank you for the education opportunity this evening. I just learned that when you Google Keith Olbermann lie that you get a lot more results than when you Google Al Franken lie.

    Since most people here with me have a measurable brain wave, I’m sure they’ll be able to do their own exploration without my help.

    By the way, your FB Friends no doubt have more pressing concerns rather than come after me like you begged them to do on your page since Congress doesn’t look like they’re willing to do another unemployment benefit extension.”

    My Response:

    “Michael Douglass
    You just can’t do it can you? Google is one thing……..facts are another and that was a typical knee jerk cheap shot by a roundheaded conservative about unemployment. You’re no doubt in favor of extending tax cuts to the wealthy.

    Wanna take that issue on? I’ll tear you apart there too.

    Put up or shut Chris. All your friends are watching their favorite bully get his ass kicked.”

    Mr. DeBello Replies:

    “Chris DeBello
    No, they’re laughing their butts off at you. Keeping your rants up is my small way of providing some entertainment for my FB friends. Now if you’ll excuse me, there’s something more important than you I need to attend to. The cat’s litterbox.”

    I Keep Coming:

    “Michael Douglass
    Actually did the litterbox this morning Chris. Saved some Almond Rocha for you. Still nothing huh? Saw your picture under “Blowhard” in the dictionary.

    YOU STILL HAVE NOTHING! Not even shame or the ability to understand that your ass is being handed to you.

    Keep getting up and I’ll keep knocking you down. I love getting a hold of ignorant jerk offs like you. This is the most fun I’ve had in weeks and on your page in front of your friends!… See More

    BTW, it’s precisely why I send friend requests to people like you!”


    So then, the clueless little bastard wises up to a degree and deletes me, but not before he deletes every single response from me and posts the the following:

    “Chris DeBello
    Michael The Mouth has been shown the door.”

    And then this, which he sends as a message as well as posting it on his page:

    “Chris DeBello

    Just maybe if you behaved with some adult civility, it might earn you some respect for what you obviously have a passion about. Yes, I have deleted you. The more I thought about who I have as FB friends (Pastors, Priests, Christians) the less I wanted to subject them to your hostility and obscenities.

    If you think you’re making some sort of difference in the world with some glorious thunder and lightening, guess again. You couldn’t possibly be any more meaningless or insignificant.

    Enjoy the anger management course that’s no doubt in your future. On the bright side, you may get to meet Mel Gibson.”

    So naturally, I respond one last time:

    “You picked this fight. For you to delete my responses and then delete me, reveals the coward that you are.

    Maybe if I behaved with adult civility? Maybe if you behaved with adult intelligence. Worried your friends being subjected to hostility and obscenity? Or worried about them seeing you lose an an argument you picked because you were full of shit?

    How much you wanna bet Mel Gibson is a conservative, pious, fucking republican, just….like…..you?

    Throughout the entire sturm and drang of this pissing match you failed miserably to have the courage of your convictions. You could not provide ONE SINGLE FACT to buttress your initial assertion that began the entire imbroglio…….you suck dude.

    You lose and you lost.

    From the phony political cartoon characters you embrace but are unable to defend at all, to your lack of intellectual honesty about the the positions you take. I’m going to say this again, although I hold no illusions about changing your mind, you are what’s wrong with this country. You poison the political discourse without knowing or caring what you you do, by parroting the talking points you absorb by some insidious osmosis from a blatantly right wing media.

    You never question, never research, never take it upon yourself to make up or even know your own mind because you are afraid and because the people you choose to allow to do your thinking for you, keep you afraid. If it were any different, you would have come up fighting with the kind of dignity only people who know and understand what they’re talking about have.

    I know, I’m one of those people. I’m informed. I pay attention and I make up my own mind. That’s nothing to be particularly proud of because it’s my responsibility as an American and as human being. It’s your responsibility too, but you duck it, you hide and choose to piss and moan about issues and policies and circumstances you’re too goddamn lazy to understand.

    You had no idea what you were getting into when you spouted off some bullshit talking point that some right wing asshole (s) had pissed in your ear and then you found yourself naked and stupid in arena of people that could see right through the shallow, puerile little pretender you are. It’s what happens to the deliberately under informed. The willfully ignorant.

    It’s all your fault.

    You need to grow up and pay attention because this once great nation is teetering, and it’s because of soft minded, easily manipulated people like you. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. I gave you every opportunity on your page and mine to defend yourself and your positions and you did not because you could not. You began this, you started it with a LIE. So I called you on it. Berated you. Mocked you. Because you deserved it for saying something irresponsible and just plain stupid, that you proved over and over you had no way to justify, explain or defend.

    That is the meat of the matter, where the rubber hits the road. You could not back your shit up.

    You couldn’t do it, because you were lying and you got caught and the comedy of it is that you probably weren’t aware that you were lying until I rubbed your stupid little nose in it front of your friends and mine. On your page and mine. So then you go and do the most predictable and gutless thing.

    You lose buddy and deep down you know it, because you didn’t even have the sack to leave my rebuttals on your page for everyone to see because they were proof of your callow ineptness. Then you have the audacity to post that “Michael The Mouth has been shown the door”.

    Well, Michael the Mouth cleaned your clock.

    Like you won something when we both know that everyone who witnessed it saw you piss your pants and run home because your simple little brain was all of the sudden whirling with just how much you didn’t understand and never even thought to pay attention to.

    You had nothing.

    You spineless little prick. You ran away and used as your excuse my language. Guess what? Nobody who followed any of it is buying it. And you know what else? I documented the entire exchange on my blog (well over a quarter of a million readers). All these people on my facebook page and my blog now understand and see first hand not only who and what you are, but exactly the brand of willfully ignorant as well as morally and ethically bereft piece of human excrement that you are.

    I’m not a violent man at all but you better hope you don’t ever pop off with that kind of shit in bar where someone like me is around that doesn’t take exception to slapping the stupid snot out of someone like you. You’d have it coming and come to think of it, it might just be the best thing for you, if only to make you see the need to keep your stupid mouth shut.

    In a purely intellectual context, I did just that and I enjoyed it. It was easy, if you don’t get your shit together and start thinking for yourself, it’s going to happen to you over and over and over……You’ll most likely cry and wonder why everyone is out to get you.

    I’m going to close by reminding you of the most salient point I have to offer. You were woefully unprepared for a fight you started. You had no idea what you were talking about and only embarrassed yourself with lame attempts to defend yourself. You had nothing. You brought nothing. The single reason for this is because you don’t pay attention or think for yourself and you foolishly picked a fight with someone that does. It really is that simple.

    You really are worthless.

    Piss up a rope.

    I honestly hope you learned something, yet I sincerely doubt it.”

  • Sandy:

    I’m disappointed that I didn’t find a link to subscribe to this blog. See, I’m very unorganized and might never find it again if you don’t send something to my mailbox. I’m also half blind and will be disappointed if that link is right here and I didn’t see it.

    • Michael Douglass:

      Well you can subscribe to my fan page on facebook (brainspank.org), there is an rss feed and you could bookmark it.

  • Junior's Ghost:

    I apologize to ask this question to a mere blogger. One with a pony in the race no less but I need to ask you this out of sheer curiousity.

    With so much hatred brewing in this country. What the hell do we need to do to avoid a 2nd American Civil War in this century. I can feel it coming in my tired, aching bones.

    I don’t need the drink, I already have plenty of vodka on hand, thank you. I’m dead serious, Mike.

    We’re on the road to Antiedam and we need to get the hell off. I agree with your ideology in every fiber of my being but I don’t wan’t to destroy someone just because I don’t agree with them. Most Americans, for now, agree with me.

    I don’t think that we can count on that being the case for much longer if we don’t do something, soon.

    We’re better than this, we deserve a better fate. Help me out, here. Take off the blogger hat and give me some ideas.

  • Michael Douglass:

    A mere blogger?


    I’m not concerned about a civil war and you shouldn’t be either. Americans are far too lazy, complacent and uninspired. Therein lies the rub. I’m not suggesting we should hope for one but such an eventuality has no purchase regardless.

    I assume you refer to Antietam.

    No, we will implode and collapse long before anything like that. Without violence or any active engagement by the the citizenry. If you choose to worry, have at that scenario instead.

    I’m only here to offer my opinion and when I’m lucky, mock and ridicule the ignorant.

    We are better than this, and that is the tragedy. The solution to that eludes this mere blogger. If I could find a way to get people to pay attention, just pay attention. Not just to what I would endorse but to everything as opposed to what is so readily in their faces. The truth isn’t always handy. I don’t believe it should be. It should be exclusive to them that would seek it.

    That’s the best I have at this hour.

    I’ll look into it but no plans thus far, I think Beck’s days are numbered. His ad revenue is nearly half what it was……

    • Aunty Em Ericann:

      I think that matters little to Faux Noise. As long as he’s stirring the pot and getting ratings *AND* pushing the right wing memes, they will keep him.

      However, I do think his days are numbered at Faux, but it still might be a large number. Whether he crashes and burns spectacularly all on his own (always a possibility with a dry drunk, former-cocaine addict) or Faux decides he’s hurting the brand remains to be seen. His comments this week about Jews killing Jesus can only accelerate either scenario.

    I want to buy you a night’s worth of beer! Do you do stand-up comedy? Your analysis hit the bullseye, but your nickname for him, the human shitsmear, had me laughing. out loud. really loud.

    And then when I thought I had laughed to the point of exhaustion, your exchanges with human shitsmear #2, chris debello proved I was still able to laugh. out loud. now with tears.

    This is definitely a hit piece.!
