Vile vs Bile October 19, 2009

bilevileIt is hard to say who makes me more nauseous – Al Sharpton or Rush Limbaugh.

Whenever I see Al Sharpton’s head pop up like Zelig I immediately change the channel or think negatively about whatever he is protesting for or against.  It is a Pavlovian knee jerk reaction that began in 1987  with the Tawana Brawley debacle.

My favorite NYC Police Detective, Matt, used to tell me that ‘Reverend Al was a cop’s favorite overtime pal.’  Translation – whenever Al Sharpton was around you could guarantee there would be a need for additional police presence.

Now it seems that an equally vile individual, Rush Limbaugh, is embroiled in a brouhaha with Al Sharpton.  It is hard to decide who to root for in this mud-fest. I find myself essentially snickering at the entire windbag-fest. It seems that when Limbaugh wanted to buy the St. Louis Rams, Sharpton sent a note to Commissioner Roger Goodell urging officials to reject Rush’s bid because of racist comments that he had made in the past.  Then, Limbaugh, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, Limbaugh said Sharpton “played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews ‘diamond merchants’) and 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot.”

Oh boy, oh boy – now Sharpton is threatening a defamation lawsuit against Rush.  Can this get much better?  This is one of those stupid situations that gives these two blowhards even more allotted air time. Argh!

–  Speaking of blowhards – Rudy Guiliani is back in the news. Gasp! He struck an all too familiar fear mongering tone on the campaign trail Sunday, saying the city is still “at great risk.”  Without mentioning Bloomberg’s Democratic opponent, Giuliani warned that crime in New York City, which declined under him and has continued to fall under Bloomberg, is also a gamble.“This city could very easily be taken back in a very different direction,” Giuliani said. “It could very easily be taken back to the way it was with the wrong political leadership.”  Why can’t this guy just go quietly into the night. Blech.

–  And then there is the balloon boy and his family. Maybe we should all treat this episode like a bad Halloween trick and let them all float quietly into the night.

Sorry. It’s time to outlaw the present Republican party. It’s no longer the GOP. Now that it’s been completely and successfully hijacked by the lunatic fringe (Thanks, Mr. Reagan, you senile old fool!), it’s time to gather the remainder into one place where they can vent their spleens– but under the watchful eyes of the progressives so that they can do no further damage to the USA. There’s no longer a balanced arena for differing opinions in this country– they’re guaranteed us that– so they don’t get to play anymore.

It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball).

Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. He is reaping what he has sowed, KARMA, “palin and simple” like his followers. Don’t we all feel better?
