That took longer that I thought. After nearly two weeks of tensions in Ferguson, MO, far-right radio has finally shoehorned the crisis into its ongoing Benghazi and IRS narratives. I’m seriously shocked that it didn’t happen sooner, a sign that perhaps the screechers are feeling a little slow on the uptake given the outrage-boner they’ve been struggling to maintain for so long.

Speaking of which, Rush Limbaugh attacked the administration for sending FBI agents to Ferguson after allegedly refusing to send FBI agents to Benghazi or to investigate the IRS.

How many FBI agents investigated the, uuuuhhhhhhhhhhh, the tea party scandal there with the IRS? How many — how many — none! Is there? That’s right there were no FBI agents investigating what happened with [True the Vote head] Catherine Engelbrecht through the phone or any of the other tea party groups. Ah, see, okay, uhhh, how many FBI agents went to Benghazi to investigate what had happened over there? That was, uhhhhhhh, zero again. At least in the first two weeks. Zip, zero — now we were told that sending the FBI into Libya would be bad, bad, bad foreign policy — would not be kind to the host nation — it would not inspire confidence — it would be seen as an insult. So. See how many, uhh, FBI agents we sent to St. Louis? 40!! Four zero. 40 FBI agents are pounding the pavement in Ferguson, in St. Louis.

Right off the bat, is it me or does Limbaugh sound drunk or stoned? If you listen to the audio, it sounds like he’s really wrestling with his zotzed-out brain to form his thoughts here. It could just be that it’s not as easy for him to make shit up as it used to be. And that’s precisely what he’s doing here. Of course we shouldn’t expect Limbaugh or his dittoheads to understand the considerably long series of differences between the IRS non-scandal, the Benghazi consulate attacks and what’s happening right now in Ferguson. If that’s the case — if law enforcement should treat everything the same way, then perhaps his parking-lot-Oxycontin purchases should’ve been investigated with the same tenacity as an international drug cartel.

So, what about the FBI and Benghazi?… CONTINUE READING

    Could it be that Sarah Palin is writing his script now?

    • granpa.usthai August 21st, 2014 at 11:31 am

      uh, what makes you so sure Sara can write?

      (just wondering what drugs might induce such a thought).

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:44 am

      Sarah doesn’t “WRITE” .. Nancy French writes everything and also writes Bristol’s “blog” (insane drivel from a high school dropout unwed mother) – Sarah is either hitting the bottle really hard or has upped her Adderal bigtime – she was personally seen drinking Vodka and Red Bull for breakfast on the Anch-Sea flight (she flies COACH) –

  2. Carla Akins August 21st, 2014 at 8:24 am

    Listening to the hate he spews non-stop – I always assumed he was drinking.

  3. MIAtheistGal August 21st, 2014 at 8:25 am

    Wouldn’t you have to be drunk to come up with the nonsense he comes up with?

    • Carla Akins August 21st, 2014 at 8:38 am

      Seriously, if he smoked a little weed he might be able to lower his blood pressure.

      • MIAtheistGal August 21st, 2014 at 9:09 am

        I don’t think he’d be so angry either.

      • edmeyer_able August 21st, 2014 at 9:18 am

        Umm….the few times I’ve been subjected to his rhetoric he has raised mine, so I’m in not in favor of that.

      • granpa.usthai August 21st, 2014 at 11:29 am

        I think it’s better for Rush to have higher blood pressure. It keeps his heart pumping, sending more Viagratized blood all the way up to his head, keeping it from imploding. I know, it’s a tough choice between choosing an exploding heart or an imploding head, but you gotta remember where the noise he makes is pulled from; you want the world to have to look at that while he’s making his noise?

      • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:39 am

        Does smoking weed go along with Oxycontin addiction, alcohol and Viagra? That’s the DittoHead Cocktail … follow the leader.

  4. John Tarter August 21st, 2014 at 8:54 am

    Come on Rush, you know the reason 40 agents were sent to St. Louis. When you’ve got a totally political Justice Dept. that’s what happens. You don’t investigate the crimes committed by your side, but you insert yourself where you have no business doing so.
    The question really is, how will the “Justice” crowd react if the Feds exonerate the police officer.

    • MIAtheistGal August 21st, 2014 at 9:19 am

      One more time! Being president while black is not a crime.

      • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:36 am

        It is to TaterTot

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:35 am

      Oh TaterTot – there you go again.
      The FBI was requested, to investigate civil rights violations and possible hate crimes.
      Perhaps Rush will share his drugs with you / also too those little blah boys in the Dominican Republic. It will improve your mood but I’m guessing FatBoy won’t share his Viagra.

    • granpa.usthai August 21st, 2014 at 11:37 am

      I don’t recall the ‘political’ DOJ inserting it’s self in Nevada, John –

      but I was disappointed as hell that they didn’t,/ wouldn’t/ couldn’t –

      missed the opportunity to find a lot of missing/stolen/lost weapons on that one.

    • Shades August 21st, 2014 at 2:56 pm

      A little advice from me to you. If you’re going to shovel BS, watch your footing. You don’t want to fall in face first again.

  5. Budda August 21st, 2014 at 8:54 am

    I don’t think he is drunk so much as he is burned out on hate.

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:33 am

      I think he’s stoned … getting off Oxy is never easy – he wouldn’t be the first. He also had bariatric surgery and he’s gained a ton back.
      Everything about Rush says “FAILURE”.

  6. Tommy6860 August 21st, 2014 at 8:57 am

    OK, some break out the BenGhazi ointment! It’s almost become classical conditioning, like Pavlov’s dog. Anything that seems like another war on whites, it becomes Obama’s fault or it’s Benghazi.

  7. dave-dr-gonzo August 21st, 2014 at 9:19 am

    Therezh a link between Benghurgason and Furghazhi…

    He’s the Foster Brooks of white power.

    • granpa.usthai August 21st, 2014 at 11:20 am

      I like Foster Brooks.
      I heard Foster Brooks.
      Rush is no Foster Brooks.
      Foster Brooks was a man of in-in-intelagiberish –
      lots of words that said something.

      • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:30 am

        And he is sober –

    • fancypants August 21st, 2014 at 4:57 pm

      white power… Whats that
      Did somebody create a lot high paying jobs last night ?

  8. Saint_Augustine August 21st, 2014 at 9:22 am

    The Ferguson Situation (ala Pulp Fiction) must be important to the right, important enough for O’Reilly to cancel his vacation and return to headquarters to lead the charge against…. Al Sharpton!

    • granpa.usthai August 21st, 2014 at 11:17 am

      -more important than many believe.
      it is another ‘line in the sand’ for the pristine WHITE master race.
      they must have a group of ‘wild animals’- ‘cockroaches’ that are infesting the cities of the glorious pristine WHITE master race in order to justify the actions of their WHITE RACIST TERRORIST THUGS in Nevada.
      This will have to be their on going quest – otherwise human beings will begin to question the sincerity of their world wide propaganda, thereby losing their fear of them.

      The pristine WHITE master race must always rule by fear, it’s the only way to keep the inferior human being species in check.

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:29 am

      Orally is a timid weak snotty little man – a racist timid weak snotty little man. He’s always hated Sharpton – he’s a “blah” …!

  9. William August 21st, 2014 at 9:40 am

    One might wonder if Limbaugh’s increasingly incoherent monologues are a byproduct of desperation or increased trips to the medicine cabinet.

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:28 am

      He doesn’t get it from a medicine cabinet. He “scores” it on the streets – probably has his own mules smuggling for him.
      The ATF could have a field day just with him.

      • William August 21st, 2014 at 11:42 am

        I forgot about that. He used to get his maid to score for him.

        • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:46 am

          Yup – threw her to the wolves.
          Fat boy is going to pay for his self medicating one of these days.

    • Abby Normal August 21st, 2014 at 12:33 pm

      Since Rush only has two moving parts – his mouth and his rectum – it’s difficult to know which one he’s speaking with. In most cases, I suspect it’s the latter.

  10. maritzka August 21st, 2014 at 10:42 am

    A team of FBI agents arrived in Benghazi, Libya, to investigate the assault against the U.S. Consulate and left after about 12 hours on the ground as the hunt for those possibly connected to the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans narrowed to one or two people in an extremist group, U.S. officials said.

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:27 am

      Blimpo never allows facts to get into the way of bloviation especially when he’s stoned to the gills.
      Do yu suppose he and Sarah Palin share their stash? She’s been bombed for weeks.

  11. RioBravoHombre August 21st, 2014 at 11:03 am

    Drugs Blimpaugh is obviously back on his Oxy’s.

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:26 am

      If he’s unlucky (I’m being polite) he’s MIXING Oxy with alcohol.

  12. granpa.usthai August 21st, 2014 at 11:05 am

    di –

  13. BillTheCat45 August 21st, 2014 at 11:14 am

    Is he back riding the Oxy-Train?

    • BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:25 am

      Oh yeah … wonder if he’s sending his maid out again to make his Oxy score.

  14. BanditBasheert August 21st, 2014 at 11:36 am

    You forgot the “why” that Rush was going to the Dominican republic. He was going on a Child Sex Tour … perhaps he was doing research? He was busted for the Oxycontin he had, the Viagra was just the only way he could get it up.

  15. Dwendt44 August 21st, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Don’t forget he’s a college ‘reject’. He didn’t even finish the first year.

    • William August 21st, 2014 at 11:58 am

      “Don’t forget he’s a college ‘reject’. He didn’t even finish the first year”
      It’s a conservative “thing”

  16. Tammy Minton Haley August 21st, 2014 at 12:28 pm

    he is having increasing difficulty…i call this style of speech “slobberly”…it just sounds…wet…


    i don’t know what his deal is–drugs, stroke, too fat–whatever…but, it cannot be denied that he is sounding different, and he seems to struggle for words, at times…

  17. cvryder2000 August 21st, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Sounds like Rush is hitting the oxy bottle again.

    • RK Johnston August 21st, 2014 at 6:44 pm

      Probably mixing Oxy and chablis!

  18. Shades August 21st, 2014 at 2:57 pm

    I believe the hillbilly heroin could be a factor.

  19. fancypants August 21st, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    When did rush stop hitting the bottle ?

  20. RK Johnston August 21st, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    When you mix pain killers and wine (Rush’s drink-of-choice), this is the LEAST you have to worry about.
    The most (for Rush, at least)…
    having the Grim Reaper cancel your show–PERMANENTLY!

    Oxys and booze=bad news!
