Rush said he was getting supremely tired of such things coming from friends of the Republican Party (so called). Again, I'm paraphrasing.
Rush said he responded and thought he would forever to the effect that (again, a paraphrase): Great Caesar's Ghost! Yes. Give us a choice between Palin and Obama and all thinking people have to go with Obama!
He then said his conversation partner blinked a few times and changed the subject.
Naturally, no thinking person would take Obama over Palin. In 2010 probably the majority of Democrats want Obama to disappear. The only people in the United States who would take Obama over Palin are the 35% looney-toon liberals who inhabit the Democrat Party plus Karl Rove, Krauthammer, Barbara Bush and some women pundits that simply can't stand other women...ANY other women...period.
I can even cut Barbara Bush some slack. She's old so probably thinks the anchor people on the evening news are objective.
Limbaugh's point was the absurdity of those people who claim to be friends who aren't. Once in a great while Rush says something I don't understand. This wasn't one of those times.
I don't think anyone can put a paraphrase in a 'Google Search' and get anywhere. Same with Lexus-Nexus. So, sorry for the paraphrase.
I'll bet dollars against doughnuts that if Palin gets the nod in 2012 Rush will be her most ardent supporter...make that second most ardent.
I agree...the sentence was badly in need of a “/s,” wasn’t it?
It is much the same with sarcasm ... sometimes. It is unclear, as we do not have expression on faces to see or knowledge of the writer's personality. .
I will also be one of Sarah's ardent supporters should she decide to run.
Rush does a great job of seeing clearly and preparing the audience for what is coming down the pike. He also can make us sorta angry. A good thing at times.
