CNN Commentator Gloats That Rush Limbaugh Is Becoming a 'Relic,' 'as Dated as Jazzercise'
Newsbusters.org ^ | 5-14-2013 | Matt Hadro

Posted on 05/14/2013 1:02:45 PM PDT by servo1969

Rush Limbaugh is fast becoming a "relic," "as dated as Jazzercise or 'Macarena'" – or so says CNN regular Dean Obeidallah in a new CNN.com op-ed.

Ironically, a CNN contributor is calling someone else irrelevant. But in all seriousness, Obeidallah gloats over Limbaugh's lost ad revenue in the past year and points to his inevitable decline: "Has Limbaugh become as dated as Jazzercise or 'Macarena?' All you need to do is look at the bottom line to see that Limbaugh is in trouble."

"Regardless where he turns up, Limbaugh will likely not be as relevant to the national media as he is now. All you have to do is look at the career of radio host Don Imus," Obeidallah added later, citing last week's report that the CEO of Limbaugh's radio syndicator admitted that advertisers distancing themselves from Limbaugh was hurting his company's profits.

Of course, Dean, Rush Limbaugh is totally the same as Don Imus.

Idiot.

Yes. A relic. You know, like the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, morality, God, common sense, marriage, self respect, honor, etc.

But Dean’s messiah Obama claims Rush Limbaugh is the reason Obama can’t get things done. This would indicate Rush had power on par with Obama’s power.

Hmmmm, is Dean the moron, or is Obama?

I vote both are morons.

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly "girl I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewellers stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring (Golden ring?)
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (Sing)

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on, yeah (No)

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ah ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand (Arm! Leg!)
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Yes, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on (Ha ha ha)
Hey, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Yeah, happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand (Foot!)
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di ob-la-da

(Thank you, uh, ha ha ha!)

CNN

I’ll never forget Trump telling Wolf Blister the discussion didn’t make much difference because only about 40,000 people were watching the show.

If a leftist talking media-head says someone or some idea is becoming a “relic” or “irrelevant” - it means the exact opposite.

The left needs to get its story straight on Rush. I thought Rush was causing gridlock? Not bad for a relic but if he is a relic, how is he causing gridlock.

BTW, I’m all for gridlock if that is what it takes to stop lefties.

Yeah, I’d bet the news shows can’t go 4 days without mentioning Rush! We know the President himself can’t stop mentioning Rush for longer than 14 days, and he is probably TRYING.

It's sort of funny when someone who has no ratings (relatively) is saying this about Rush on CNN which has but a sliver of Rush's ratings.

Thought Rush had 14,000,000 listeners daily???

Though his audience did decrease from the 1990's 20,000,000.

All you have to do is look at the career of radio host Don Imus...

What a strange thing to say. I think Imus has more viewers now on Fox Business Network than he did when he was on CNBC.

Well, Obeidallah, the President of the United States just said that Rush is more powerful than he. How can Rush be on the way out when the POTUS is saying that Rush is the reason his failed policies are failing again?

As difficult as it may be for your ilk, at least try to be consistent, Obeidallah. Apparently you do not like common sense.

Not that 14m number is weekly listeners.
For some reason radio tabulates weekly and tv daily.
