I'm putting this in the political topics because it has to do with a political radio show host : Rush Limbaugh *puke*. Those who know me, know how much I dislike that man, he is an overweight jerk that says the most insensitive and offensive things. I don't give a toot about what side he is on, he is just a jerk.....But today I found out that he launched his career here in Sacramento, my town . Oh I feel so ashamed of Sacramento . Does anybody else have a political figure or politician that they just dislike, or even despise, that launched their career in your town?

You know, you might just have something there. Let's take Kathleen Sebelius, the worst governor Kansas has ever had. Now the rest of the country gets to see her become the worst health and human services secretary ever. What fun for you. You can turn off or simply not watch Rush. Once the nation is no longer as you remember it, what will you do then? Complain about where it got its start?

And the worst part is, we the taxpayers are paying that woman's salary and she makes decisions that affect our lives. We get no choice in the matter. At least with Limbaugh what he does has no direct affect on our lives, and if you don't like him, you just don't listen to him.

Yet another example of the "sensitive" left. I'm trying to figure out how the left got their reputation of being about "love" and "understanding".

Do i really have to keep repeating myself over and over? It would be really nice if everyone could take this as a fun thread and let out agression that they have about people they don't like from their home town, but no, users, like yourself, have to be party poopers and defend a jackass. Lets see, Rush called Chelsea a dog, blamed Elizabeth for John's affair and said that she should have done "something with her mouth besides talking", and he mocked a man with Parkinson's disease. I don't really give a crap if I'm not loving and understanding over a piece of scum like Rush Limbaugh.

Ah, sorry jerk, I missed the sarcasm. Now that I reread it, I can see where your fatty fat self was just joking around. Was that the kind of jovial comments you were wanting? lol

I'm part of the "sensitive" left and I'm all about love and understanding but that's limited to my fellow human beings and cute, cuddly animals; Rush Limbaugh isn't eligible for or worthy of my love and understanding...lol! Annie

OK, as an overweight person I take offense to people who always point out that he's overweight. We all know that they mean it in a negative and demeaning way. And since I'm not particularly a fan of Limbaugh. I don't mind it when you all call him a jerk or whatever but adding overweight or fat to that bugs me somewhat. It's like fat people are the last minority (or are we a majority now?)that can be made fun of. Alright ..... I'm sort of kidding. James Earl Ray was born in my city, so I guess you can say that he got his start here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Earl_Ray

I add it because he is a very mean jerk that has no problem making fun of others, you should see the video of his radio show where he makes fun of Michael J Fox. He is degrading to women as well. And he simply doesn't care about any of it, I have no problem with overweight people, but ANY person that decides to be as obnoxious,offensive,rude, and mean deserves a taste of their own medicine, especially if they simply don't care. I have had people call me a skinny b1tch to my face before because they didn't like me, and I didn't care, I was called anorexic all through High School, but I didn't let it get to me. I get made fun of for other reasons, and yeah I do care, because its something I can't help and I am not one to make fun of appearance, but a man who makes fun of another with Parkinsons, well I just don't really give a toot about what I say about him, a mean person deserves to be treated meanly. A person that makes fun of another persons disease is why I throw in the overweight part, I have no doubt in my mind that if I met Rush and was anyone important and gave him my two cents, if I was famous, I am sure he would have something nasty and cruel to say about me, because thats the kind of person he is.

The guy that made jokes about Trigg, really pissed me off and since then, I don't really like the Huffington Post because they had that on there, that sort of thing is unacceptable in my opinion, no matter what my feelings are about Palin, her baby boy who can't help that he had DS should be offlimits and if I knew what the guy who made fun of Trigg looked like, I would rip him a new one too.

I'm sorry, piasabird, I'd never want to hurt or offend anyone for their weight or any other physical trait but I guess I don't give Limbaugh the same consideration I give others because of how he's been so cruel to others. Now, Rose, LET'S "put some lipstick on this pig"! Show me some examples of where Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Huffington Post, Daily Kos said any "horribly, nasty, ugly things about Gov Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol and infant son Trigg or Miss California, Joe the plumber,George W. Bush, Richard Cheney that come close to comparing with the things Limbaugh has said and I promise to be outraged at them as well! The Huffington Post contributor who wrote that scathing piece about Trig is a jerk and I've said that in the past. Come on, show me the examples and tell me how they're as bad as making fun of a 12 year old girl, saying something vulgar and cruel about a woman suffering from cancer whose husband has cheated on her or mocking a young man suffering from a crippling disease!

Rush is loved by his 23 million listeners and speaks for millions more. He is down to about 200 lbs so that makes two lies about him. You LIBS on the left have been trying to ruin him since he started. You have FAILED. He becomes more and more popular every year. He will make 38 Million this year. Wow,he must be some kind of idiot that doesn't know what he is talking about. Why don't the LIBS have anyone in the top five on talk radio? I'll tell you why,because no one believes what they are talking about because it's all lies and jibber jabber. You LIBS hate Rush because he is destroying your leaders. These retards on the Left like Pelosi and Frank can barely tie their shoes. Pelosi calling little old ladies NAZI'S and Barney Frank sounds like he's slobbering all over himself!!! Where do you find these losers? I can't believe you can't do any better.

"I believe Rush was speaking for most of the American people we that are true Americans do not and will not sit back and let socialism happen with out putting up a damn hard fight this makes us Americans we still have the core values of what being an American relly means. " Sometimes kennyrose you just seem to blow me out of the water with some things that you say. I do not see you as evil I see you as a person that believes what she believes and stands behind it. Which by the way is great. You have the same beliefs and you agree with the guy that is great but in the same sentence you call others that have different opinions as being unamerican and you always seem to speak for "most american" This is the division, sometimes we all get so caught up in what we believe that we dont believe that something else can possibly work. Kind of like when you give your kids chores if they do not do it the same way as we do it is not done right. Does it matter how they did it or does it matter that they got the job done? Carson actually I was going to respond to sweetie and ask her why she had to add the weight factor in there. It is all about the way we present ourselves. We should keep their physical problems out of the whole political arena. Although frank might sound that way have you thought to think that it is a medical problem such as numbness from a birth mark. As far as Nancy well sometimes people have diaheara of the mouth which is not a medical problem so she is fair game lol She doesnt like Rush she doesnt agree with him so what is wrong about that? Name calling just doesnt cut it for me. It can be done tastefully without disrespecting yourself.

I am not much of a fan of his but I have heard some things that he's said and he does make some good points sometimes.

Ok where to start to whom to respond lol. To Carson and Grammasnook, the reason that I throw in the overweight thing is because this man has no problem making fun of others physical forms, like making fun of Michael J Fox who has Parkinson's disease and Michael has no control over that, that's why I throw it in. My dad is overweight, but he doesn't go around putting down others. Carson, so I guess you love someone who makes degrading and sexist remarks about women and makes fun of a person with Parkinson's, yeah big FAIL on my part *rolls eyes*. And to Kennyrose, I have lived in Sacramento for 10 years now, just like any major (i guess you can call it major) it has its bad parts but it also has its good parts, no need to make it out to sound like the really bad parts of L.A, because it is not like that. My family and I have led a nice, quiet life here and so can many others. I have no problem with Sacramento, that was not the point of the topic.

That's right take shots at him for being fat. Typical liberal attack on somebody. You can't debate on what Rush says, so you attack what he looks like.

Superficial attacks are their weapon of choice. Anyone who saw the way they attacked Palin or McCain knows that.

Yeah because the other side hasn't been just the same to Hillary,and Chelsea, and some got worked up over Michelle Obama wearing shorts, Obama's little girl wearing a shirt with a piece sign. Oh yes and Rush Limbaugh was the one to call Chelsea a dog, when she was 13 years old. Yeah I can sure as hell debate on that, would you like to debate on the crap he said about a man with Parkinsons disease..oh and not to mention the oh so colorful statement he made about Elizabeth Edwards ""It just seems to me that [John] Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk." Rush Limbaugh is a piece of filth because vile, degrading, and offensive crap like that spews from his mouth. So yes, once again, I can sure as hell debate on what he says, I really don't give a crap what his political views are, I would never listen to anyone on my side that said crap like that. Its so ironic how im getting ripped for calling him fat, when look at all of the horrible things that he has said about perfectly decent human beings.
