Yes, Rush Limbaugh mentioned me yesterday

Sort of.

But I’ll take it—I’ll take it. Close enough:

RUSH: Now, I got a post here at Legal Insurrection. And the poster, the writer is somebody that calls themselves Neocon, but it’s actually just a post pointing to something in the Washington Post, and they point to the headline, and they say, “Look what’s gonna happen here. They’re gonna make Obama a victim. That’s how they’re gonna explain this,” and the Washington Post headline: “Obama Suffers Most From Year of Turmoil, Poll Finds.”

It’s a Washington Post/ABC poll, and the article goes on to describe the precipitous decline in Obama’s standing in the approval numbers and how that is causing Obama to suffer. Not people who’ve lost their health insurance, no. Not people who are going to be. Not people who’ve lost their jobs. Not people who can’t pay off student loans. Not people who are trapped because of the Obama economy.

No, no, no! We’re not worried about them. “Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Obama! Oh, Obama is suffering more than anybody from this.” This is perverted, and it is sick, and it is their way of dealing with this. I went and researched my website, and it’s all the way back on October the 16th where I first made reference to this fact that the Democrats, the left, the media were going to start portraying Obama as a victim.

There’s quite a bit more at the Limbaugh link. I believe he regularly posts transcripts of his entire shows.

So to those of you who asked me about it: no, the Rush mention didn’t drive any traffic here that I could see. After all, the link was to Legal Insurrection, a site where the powers that be (Professor William A. Jacobson of Cornell) kindly allow me to cross-post.

Actually, it’s the second time Limbaugh has discussed work of mine. The first reference was to a piece I wrote for the Weekly Standard.

It’s always extremely nice to get some recognition from the biggees—even if yesterday Rush did call me by the dread n-word: “Neocon.” And so: many thanks!

    He didn’t call you by the all important catch phrase “Neo, Neo”, though.

    Something Rory Miller mentioned in his book, Meditations on Violence, concerns how victims of rape need to consider dropping their role of being a victim. Because it is powerful and offers them stability, protection. But so long as they use this status to affect the people around them, they will never develop inner strength or be able to use martial arts technique to their full potential.

    N-Neocon…GOOD on ya, Kiddo!! It means you’re on his ‘map’. Send his longtime programing producer/helpmate( a black man,’Yo.) Colonel ‘Beau Snerdly’ an email for an fyi of your site. Can’t hurt.

  3. neo-neocon Says:


    Do you have an email address for Snerdly?

  4. Eric Says:

    Neo: “dread n-word: “Neocon.””

    It shouldn’t be. I’m a neocon. Neocons are just liberals – but real liberals, not Marxist-corrupted liberals.

    Conservatives don’t like neocons because neocons are liberals. Liberals don’t like neocons because liberals aren’t liberals. Neocons are liberals.

  5. Ymarsakar Says:

    The Left corrupts all that they touch. Even a word that normally represents liberty. Even in Australia and Europe they consider “liberal” to be more free economy.

  6. carl in atlanta Says:

    Maybe the reason he didn’t drive traffic here is that he got your moniker wrong? [ Left off the first Neo]

  7. Lizzy Says:

    Congrats, Neo!

  8. expat Says:

    Actually, neocons are people with minds open to experience. The biggest problem with lefties is that they can never admit that things are not as they imagined.

  9. NeoConScum Says:

    N-Neocon: I don’t, but check his site or, were I you with your muscle, I’d ask Professor J. if he might have a good contact e-mail. Snerdly has always seemed to me to be a helluva good man. It just jazzes me that the Great One has quoted you. That’s really good stuff, Friend.

  10. Rush Limbaugh Says:

    I’ve been a fan for years. if you would just remove that damn apple….

  11. NeoConScum Says:

    El Rushbo… It’s part of the N-Neo allure,’Yo.

  12. Eric Says:

    Some rebels wear a Guy Fawkes mask. Neo wears an apple.

  13. Tim Says:

    Well done….been a reader for about 18 months. I like a lot of your posts/rants/etc. Keep it up.

  14. Ymarsakar Says:

    Neo’s “rants” are eclipsed by the various comments here. At least, that was true in the early days.

  15. Beverly Says:

    Bo Snerdley is on Twitter. “Follow” him, and you can post a Twit, er, Tweet to him directly.

    I’d include “Legal Insurrection” and Neocon as terms. I don’t know how they handle the traffic the show gets, but that seems to be how it works; kind of like bots looking for meta-tags.

    I met Bo in NYC at a conservative gathering: yes, he really exists! Genial man, big guy with a deep voice, and wears some remarkable hats. Smart as a whip, too. Someone asked him to ask Rush to do something or other, and Bo just smiled and said, “Rush always does his own thing.”

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
