Does Rush need a fix? Are his cranially-implanted hearing aids short-circuiting? Are his three ex-wives putting the squeeze on? Did he look in the monitor and see how porky he’s gotten again? Or is it the beating the Republicans took in the mid-term elections that has El Rushbo’s girdle in a painful twist?
Well, it 's unlikely to be the latter, because the day after the Republican purge of congress, Rush was elated. He told his listeners,
“…the way I feel is this: I feel liberated, and I'm just going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don't think deserve having their water carried.”
It must be great to get that off his chest. The rest of us have known all along that he’s a shill for whatever budget-busting, Constitution-gutting, natavist, homophobic horseshit that the Republican Party could throw at us – and now his listeners know too. But did they get it? Different question…
