The continuing parade of absurdity

Rush nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize?

Yep. It is true.

Rush Limbaugh has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by the Landmark Foundation, a not-for-profit funded by Exxon, among others, to further "conservative" values.

(They push the war and oil agenda, basically.)

And in their own words, Rush is ...
"the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the world today. Everyday he gives voice to the values of democratic governance, individual opportunity, and the just, equal application of the rule of law - and it is fitting that the Nobel Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful world for future generations."
What makes him deserving of such high accolades? Why, quotes such as these, shamelessly ripped from the pages of TruthOut ...
On Aids: "And one of the things that...that the...the AIDS activists said regularly back then was, oh, this is only a matter of time before it spreads to the heterosexual community. It's only a matter of time. And they used that as- as one of the weapons to try to get people like Reagan to start talking about it from their standpoint. And of course it...it hasn't. It, it didn't, and it hasn't, other than in Africa, and in Africa it is - it is being spread not just by...it...it...it's promiscuity that...that...that spreads this, if you want to know the truth. It's promiscuity. But it...it hasn't made that jump to the heterosexual community."

On African Americans: "Why should Blacks be heard? They're 12% of the population. Who the hell cares?"

On Choice: "I think this reason why girls don't do well on multiple choice tests goes all the way back to the Bible, all the way back to Genesis, Adam and Eve. God said, 'All right, Eve, multiple choice or multiple orgasms, what's it going to be?' We all know what was chosen."

On Citizen Service: "Citizen Service is a repudiation of the principles upon which our country was based. We are all here for ourselves."

On Condoms: "Condoms only work during the school year."

On Drug Abuse: "And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."

On Earth: "The Earth's eco-system is not fragile."

On Feminism: "Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."

On Homelessness: "One of the things I want to do before I die is conduct the Homeless Olympics...the 10-meter shopping cart relay, the dumpster dig, and the hop, skip, and trip."

On Prison Abuse in Iraq: "This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it, and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people; you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of need to blow some steam off?"

On Michael J. Fox's Support of Embryonic Stem Cell Research: "He is exaggerating the effects of his disease (Parkinson's). He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act. . . .This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting. This is the only time I've ever seen Michael J. Fox portray any of the symptoms of the disease he has. He can barely control himself."

On the NAACP: "The NAACP should have a riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."

On Nuclear Arms Reduction: "The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them."

On Sexual Harassment: "Sexual harassment at this work station will not be reported. However, it will be graded!"

On the Rich-Poor Gap: "Don't let the liberals deceive you into believing that a decade of sustained growth without inflation in America (in the '80s) resulted in a bigger gap between the haves and the have-nots. Figures compiled by the Congressional Budget Office dispel that myth."

Yeah. He deserves the Nobel Peace Prize about as much as our favorite old war criminal Henry Kissinger. I suppose that means he's pretty well got it locked down ...
