I was listening, by chance, to the very program when Rush said that, but it was either irony or sarcasm that I detected. I’m not a Rush Limbaugh fan, but I hear him often since his program follows someone I do listen to. So, I’m quite used to the way he makes transitions from the some current bit of news to the nitty gritty (stuff that affects us all in a more direct way). When I heard him say this (and the quote is completely correct), the tone he used sounded typical to me —like he was using one of his rhetorical transitions and that this discovery isn’t going to affect our day to day lives while THIS one is…
Hence the link to our economy, etc. I would be quite surprised to hear that Rush Limbaugh is a creationist. Because this is such a hot button issue here on LGF, I immediately pricked up my ears and listened quite carefully when he made that statement because I was wondering whether this fossil—er—shoe was about to drop—but it didn’t. He went on to his transition as usual.
