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!
