Right Spanks Rush; Left Puts Him on the Couch
Left-wing pundits have put Rush Limbaugh on the proverbial couch, while fellow right-wing talk radio host Michael Savage has trained his sights on Limbaugh.
Salon.com featured a long list of Limbaugh’s commentary concerning the posterior of human anatomy.
Chirped Salon, "It’s too bad that Sigmund Freud’s long dead, because Rush is the old shrink’s dream patient, with an obvious diagnosis: Limbaugh has an anal fixation."
Among Salon’s items are Limbaugh’s not infrequent warning that various individuals are liable to die of "anal poisoning" from their proximity to various targets such as Hillary Clinton and President Obama.
In terms of Obama specifically, Limbaugh was quoted as having said, "We are being told that we have to hope [Obama] succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend over forward, backward, whichever, because his father was black, because this is the first black president."
Salon larked, "Limbaugh’s tuchis talk is so constant, it doesn’t seem to be just the joking around of a clown. (Is it mere coincidence that he got out of serving in Vietnam because of an anal cyst?)"
Noted the article, "Anal rape jokes, in particular, are a running theme for Limbaugh. In fact, they’re one of his favorite ways of describing acquiescence or obedience.
"Note the recurring racial theme," the article continued, going on to list anal-centric comments Limbaugh had made about David Dinkins, the Democratic party, and Jim Florio.
About the Democratic party, Limbuagh had groused, "Democrats will bend over, grab the ankles, and say, ’Have your way with me,’ for 10 percent and 2 percent of the population?" for purportedly serving the interests of Black and gay Americans.
The article also noted that a favorites Limbaugh slur is call someone "butt boy," usually in relation to a more prominent politician.
For himself, Limbaugh is loathe to present too tempting a target: Salon quoted Limbaugh as saying, "I never bend over forward in public, especially in these times."
"I dropped something, is what the confusion is here and I--in--in New York City I never bend over forward. And--so--in public," Limbaugh reportedly said in a separate, typically eloquent quotation. "So I needed somebody to come pick it up for me."
A third Limbaugh quote read, "I seldom bend over forward in public, for obvious reasons."
Vetting of candidates for high-level positions in government are, in Limbaugh parlance, subjected to "rectal exams," and an allegation of anal rape provided material for on show’s on-air laff riot, Salon reported.
