Rush is the Right’s answer to Keith Olbermann, pure and simple. And before everyone rolls their eyes because they see Olbermann as the effing anti-Christ, I’ll say there are the occasional rare sunny days when, if I hear either of them out of context, I think Rush and Olbermann are both right on the money. I can agree with each of them on certain things. (And even a broken clock is right twice a day…)
But I can’t stand either one of them, and for the same reasons. Each is a wacked out blowhard, so extreme the heat of their vicious hysterical bullshit could peel the paint in a room. Each one colors their chosen party as a bunch of raving lunatics. That morsel of unvarnished truth they spread here and there, like so much fairy dust, isn’t enough to make up for how offensive, ne dangerous, they’ve become. They’re overexposed, overly hostile, overly fat, and overly coiffed, respectively. And while both purport to tell it you straight, they’re both hypocrites of the worst kind; tools, loudmouth assholes, deniers of truth, glossy rabble-rousers, and ultimate panderers to the fringe.
I wouldn’t cross the street to piss on either one if they were on fire.
