I haven't posted in oh, about 4 months (or is it 5?) mainly because a) no one was reading and b) I stopped having interesting things to say. Okay, I'm lying. It's pretty much only reason a. Anyway, squishy mentioned my blog so I thought I'll at least write something down if I have a funny. And I do.
I've taken to listening to Rush Limbaugh lately. No seriously. He's hilarious. I honestly had no idea why so many people listened to him but now I do - pure, unadulterated comedy. Granted I'm not sure he knows he's funny but I do. And I'll admit I'm a sore winner (or at least a sore presumed winner). But here's a direct/indirect quote from a caller today:
Caller: So, Rush, can this "religious fervor" over Barack Obama be sustained?
Rush: Absolutely not.
Me: Hahahahahahaha, snort, snort, guffaw, guffaw, hahahahahahaha.
This is funny on so many levels. I love the use of the phrase "religious fervor," because recently I've had two people try and convince me that Obama is Muslim. First, there's nothing wrong with him being Muslim, so get over it. And second he's not Muslim!! Damn fired Clinton staffer for putting out that damn email. But this little exchange between Rush and Caller is downright hysterical mainly due to the fact that for the past 8 years religious fervor has extended to create pretty much all the evil in the U.S., at least politically. Give me a scandal or a bad decision and I'll find you religious fervor as the a co-conspirator. Not to mention that religious fervor is the cornerstone of Karl Rove and the current administration. Surely the irony of the Caller's statement is not lost, nor the instant, adament response of Rush.
Like I said, pure, unadulterated comedy. Rush. Hee!
