Rush Limbaugh: Idiot Extraordinaire

Ok - this one's almost too good to be true:

And don’t forget, Sherrod Brown is black. There’s a racial component here, too. And now, the newspaper that I’m reading all this from is The New York Times, and they, of course, don’t mention that. But — you know, “Democratic leaders say that Representative Sherrod Brown, a seven-term incumbent from Avon, has a far better chance of toppling Senator DeWine than does the — Hackett.”


Uh, Sherrod Brown’s a white guy? Then I’m confusing him with somebody. OK, I’m sorry. I thought Sherrod Brown was — I’m — I’m confusing him with somebody then. Must be somebody in New York has got a similar name…


For those of you who continue to email me, even though I have made the correction — let me make the correction again. I erred when I said that Sherrod Brown is black. I’m confusing him with somebody with a similar name in the Democratic Party somewhere. But we have — we have corrected this, and I, you know, I’m not gonna apologize, ’cause I don’t think it’s an insult to be black. But — but I did err. He is — his is — he is — he is not black. He’s one of these white European descendents in Ohio. He’s the guy that — that the Democrats have kicked Paul Hackett out of the race for the Senate seat in Ohio against Mike DeWine. And it really boils down to a matter of money, plus they don’t like military guys in the, in the Democratic Party.


Truth be told, the first time I saw his name in print (probably 8-9 months ago) *I* assumed "Sherrod Brown" was black, too. But what did I do? I FUCKING LOOKED THE GUY UP ON GOOGLE BEFORE I MADE THE ABSOLUTELY FUCKING EGREGIOUS ERROR OF PRESUMING THAT HE WAS BLACK BASED SOLELY ON MY PRECONCIEVED NOTION.

My favorite part of his trying to cover his stupidity was in the non sequitur:

He’s one of these white European descendents in Ohio.




  • I knew BlogActive had it right:

    They predict that in November, Ken Mehlmen will be saying that the Dems hate the military and forcing out Paul Hackett proves it. Well, I guess it didn't take even that long. Because here is Rush saying exactly that.

  • Hey Oy -

    Thanks for stopping by.

    The adorable part of all this is, that just months ago, Limbaugh was perfectly comfortable with degrading Hackett's military status...
