JUST WHEN YOU think you've heard it all from the rapacious political culture on the Right, along comes word from the blog RAW STORY that Rush Limbaugh has fallen even father into incoherence under the weight of his own words. Nobody should ever accuse Rush of being anything more than a reptilian elitist when he discusses all of us mortals who merit his sneer. It's become a multi-million dollar growth industry for him no matter how stressed the economy. Now hear these thoughts from him on his radio show in his slithery primer on predestination:
"There is no equality. You cannot guarantee that any two people will end up the same. And you can't legislate it, and you can't make it happen. You can try under the guise of fairness and so forth, but some people are self- starters, and some people are born lazy. Some people are born victims. Some people are just born to be slaves."
The born-slaves thing would doubtless come as a surprise to those historians who have told us that the African natives were kidnapped and shipped to American plantation owners because the gods had chosen them to pick cotton.
Using his profound logic, I'd say he's left out a category: Some people, like Rush himself, must be born simply to discredit human decency. We can only respond with the Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) Award to be shared by all of his mindless dittoheads who are so inspired by his never-ending nonsense.
