Quote of the day: All right, Al Franken, America is waiting to hear--are you going to apologize to Rush Limbaugh? Huh, liberal guy? Huh?


History can be fickle, and cruel (and often hard to remember at exam time). Many incandescent QOTD candidates, for example, have been lost to time through the simple mischance of being scribbled on the backs of envelopes or whatnot, never to be seen again, or at least not for a couple of weeks, by which time they've begun to recede into history.

Today's quote, for example, turned up scribbled on the back of a Berkshire Record Outlet catalog supplement on the carpet in front of the couch. It's from Al Franken's visit to The Colbert Report this week, plugging the paperback edition of his book The Truth . . . with jokes, and it documents one of the very strangest episodes in the 2006 immediate post-election period: Rush Limbaugh's eye-popping declaration that he was relieved by the Republican rout, because it meant he no longer had to carry the water for people who didn't deserve to have their water carried for them.

A stern Stephen Colbert confronted Al with this utterly logical challenge:

"Al, would you like to apologize to Rush Limbaugh for attacking him for things you know he didn't even mean?"

Liebaugh not only CARRIED the water, he WAS the water of the neocons who took over the gop.
With 20 million dittoheads sucking on the teats of head conman Liebaugh, the neocons in office thought they could do no wrong with Liebaugh behind the golden microphone. Liebaugh, Hateity and the like hoodwinked the conservatives into thinking they were voting for conservatives.
The profits to be made off of fooling some of the people all of the time is huge and those two goons in particular are guilty of war profiteering and dividing the nation for profit at a time when the country needs to pull together. Because of them, we have Bush, Cheney, Rove, Boehner and the worst disastrous government failure in the history of America, if not, of mankind.

I hear you, Tim!

Only now Rush seems to have joined Gilda Radner's Emily Litella in saying:

"Never mind."

I haven't heard about Sean's current "thinking." ("Thinking" really does have to go in quotes when it's applied to Sean, doesn't it?) I suspect he's waiting for imaginary recounts to show that the widely assume results of Election Day have all been overturned.
