"Guess what?" Limbaugh frothed. "Faisal is a registered Democrat!" He then wondered whether the abandoned SUV had an Obama sticker on it.
Guess what, Rush. Media Matters checked out the voter registration roles in Connecticut and was told by the registrar that there is no evidence that Shahzad was a registered voter.
Not that any of this will make any difference to the legions of Limbaugh followers, who want to believe. Normally, it shouldn't make any difference to the sane world, either. Uninformed people say dumb things every day. But Limbaugh's enraged voice of insidious commentary echoes through the right wing world and soon others of his ilk are repeating it without conscience.
It's tiresome. But at least we can call him on it and clearly profile him as the country's most visibly crazed liar.
In the mornings in Sicily, the street vendors push their carts along the old multi-story buildings shouting strange syllables as the residents of their apartments' upper floors lower their baskets to the sing-song vendors for a day's fresh supply of fruit and vegetables. I once asked a Sicilian what the vendors were saying.
"Saying?" he shrugged. "They're not saying anything. They're just making a lot of noise to get people to buy the lemons and tomatoes."
I wonder if Limbaugh ever tried to sell his lemons in Palermo.
