Bless The Beast
Thanks to a link from comments, we present The BEAST 50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2005.
43. Rush Limbaugh
Charges: Rather than engage in the admittedly difficult task of justifying GOP policies rationally, the key to Limbaughâ€™s success is attracting an audience that actually yearns to be lied to. It doesnâ€™t matter how many righteous fact-checkers assail him in print and on the web, because dittoheads donâ€™t care that heâ€™s lying, as long as the lies justify their prejudices. Limbaughâ€™s program is not just hypocritical; it is a celebration of hypocrisy for ignorant crackers, angry at smart people and strung out on the dwindling sensation that they are better than everyone else by virtue of their race, sex, nationality or level of bluster, because their character and accomplishments donâ€™t warrant such feelings. If political discussion were sex, the Limbaugh audience would be a horde of virgins beating off to deranged rape fantasies.
Exhibit A: Started out in sports radio; hasnâ€™t changed his approach one bit.
Sentence: Starved to death in full view of glazed ham; ACLU mistakenly bestowed entire estate due to barbecue sauce stain on last will and testament.
31. Rita Cosby
Charges: Unholy pastiche of fearmongering and celebrity ringworm with the brain of a moth, the integrity of a tapeworm, and the appearance and larynx of a sugar-addicted, glass-eating drag queen.
Exhibit A: Her banter with Joe Scarborough kills children.
Sentence: Kicked in the nuts.
The whole thing should keep you occupied at work long enough to bring down the economy…
