They're Not Even Trying to Hide the Racism Any More

Rush Limbaugh Calls The First Lady ‘Uppity’ (VIDEO) | Addicting Info:

I’ll tell you something else. We don’t like paying millions of dollars for Mrs. Obama’s vacations. The NASCAR crowd doesn’t quite understand why when the husband and the wife are going to the same place, the first lady has to take her own Boeing 757 with family and kids and hangers-on four hours earlier than her husband, who will be on his 747. NASCAR people understand that’s a little bit of a waste. They understand it’s a little bit of uppity-ism.

There's no way he can spin this. Oh, he'll try, but 'uppity' is a racially charged word, and Limbaugh  knows it.

Rush Limbaugh's ratings are falling sharply. Hardly any Republican pol feels compelled to kiss his butt any more. He's trying desperately to get attention, and it's only going to get worse. 

This is mostly useful as a way of outing those idiots who claim "we're not racists, Democrats are the real racists, because Robert Byrd was in the KKK before any of us were born." Watch closely: anyone trying to defend Limbaugh and/or his use of the word 'uppity' is ipso facto racist. And I don't care if it offends them to be called what they are.

Nice try, but spewing this reaches your very small audience.

Of which you are, apparently, a part. Lucky me.

Heh. There's somebody who's completely clueless about the way the Internet works! (linking now)

Once upon a time, Limbaugh was funny. The establishment was liberal, and he poked holes in the establishment. That always warms the cockles of my heart. Then he decided he was an Important Political Thinker(TM), and the party went right off the rails.

So what do we have now?

We have a racist drug addict with no more ammunition.

Seriously, if you're still taking Limbaugh seriously at this late date, your IQ's likely a couple points shy of that of the flaking drywall in my shower.

Here's a clue for the right: More Bill Buckley and PJ O'Rourke. Less Limbaugh and Hannity.

What happened to journalism. You know .. where facts are checked and compared?

I'm sure (although I am lazy and not going to look for a citation) that OTHER presidents and their families have traveled separately. But OH NO! Let's not look at that.

Silly MitMoi. It's not an outrage if the President is white.
