Rush Limbaugh, Meatspace Troll

From Media Matters for America: Limbaugh on Media Matters: "[Y]ou're going to have to learn not to be baited when I'm baiting you"
On the April 25 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, host Rush Limbaugh again claimed that the "Media Matters people fell for it, and the drive-by media fell for it, and this is a perfect illustration of what I was talking about on that day," referring to his recent statement that Cho Seung-Hui, the Virginia Tech gunman, "had to be a liberal." Media Matters documented both Limbaugh's April 19 statement that Cho "had to be a liberal" and his subsequent observation that "[n]ow the drive-bys will read on a website that I'm attacking liberalism by comparing this guy to them" (Limbaugh regularly refers to mainstream media outlets as "the drive-by media"). On April 23, Limbaugh similarly claimed that "Media Matters fell for it hook, line, and sinker. They had it up all over the place," adding: "I was making a joke. ... Although I do believe that it was liberalism that got a hold of this guy and made him hate things, professors and this sort of thing."
First, he's flip-flopping so fast I swear he's going to wear a groove in his floor. Does he believe his bullshit statement about Cho "ha[ving] to be a liberal", or is it a joke? To make things worse, he's claiming it's a joke and saying he only said it to make Media Matters report on it. So he's admitting to be a meatspace troll, no better than folks like Fred Phelps. But this also means he doesn't believe the offensive garbage he spews, so why should his loyal wingnuts follow him?

Olbermann's right about this: Flush Limpballs is, at the end of a day, a really poor comedian, but a comedian nonetheless. No sane person would take the garbage he says seriously.

And remember, you can hear Limbaugh locally on 1190 AM WOWO, Ft. Wayne's home for insane right-wing shit.
