Rush: Listener response to Fred’s attack on Huck was almost “orgasmic”

posted at 3:27 pm on January 11, 2008 by Allahpundit

Red meat by the chunkful, topped off by a long quasi-conspiratorial rant about the media playing favorites. He’s not so much pro-Fred (although he’s clearly that) as anti-Huck, but either way it’ll help in South Carolina: Don’t think McCain’s not going to be taking on-air beatings too as the primary approaches and the RINO hunt gears up. Afterglow:

As Thompson toured the town of Georgetown, he was enveloped by several well-wishers who cooed over his performance at last night’s debate…

“I mean, I can ‘out’ poorboy any of them. I grew up in more modest circumstances than any of them on that stage,” said Thompson, who was raised in a small Tennessee town. “But I grew up in a free country where I knew if I behaved myself, I had a chance at the American dream.”

Big numbers last night so cross your fingers. Elsewhere, the crack nutroots brain trust plots to restore viability to the only Republican candidate with the money and organization to make life difficult for them next fall.

McCain – conservative democrat? No way! He keeps co-sponsoring Amnesty and Global Warming bills with Obama. Just because he has a position on Iraq that the Dems would’ve had if they were in the White House doesn’t make him “conservative”.

the only Republican candidate with the money and organization to make life difficult for them next fall.

If you can bring yourself to stay awake during one of the batting practice liberal debates, anyone can see, they got noth’in, Mitt or Fred would eviscerate them in any straight up confrontation.

Republican debates are (mostly) about substance, Democrat debates are about likability, they don’t dare go into too much detail, Libs is still a four letter word.

Igor R. McCain qualifies as a conservative dem because he opposes runaway federal spending and doesn’t hate the military.

Fredheads what part of Fred is a sham and supports Juan Mcamnesty don’t you understand? If Fred claims to be against amnesty and helps and supports Juan Mccain isn’t that sufficient proof that Fred has been FOR amnesty all along and lies to his supporters?

If a red truck runs over a liberal does anybody in the media hear it?

I have only a one-word question-

Proof?

El Rusho speaks the truth…

Zorro on January 11, 2008 at 7:21 PM

With all this bickering about who is more conservative and who isn’t. Don’t forget our history!

For those that don’t know about our conservative history…..here is a condensed version.

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were:

1. The invention of beer, and
2. The invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer.

These were the foundations of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct groups:

1. Liberals
2. Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor the aluminum can was invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages
were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ’s and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men.

Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democrat voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

Over the years Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. (Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have
higher testosterone levels than their men.) Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone
who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals
remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

The end.

The proof is that Fred is not trying to win…never has been considering that most of his family has high paying jobs in his campaign he’s just milking it hoping for VP slot with his buddy Mcamnesty.

If Fred was trying to win he would have went after the frontrunner Juan Amnesty…he had every opportunity to but declined therefore VP hopes.

What good would it be having a “solid conservative/(abortion lobbyist) “anti amnesty” VP, when the president is Mr. Amnesty himself?? Answer..none

HaraldHardrada on January 11, 2008 at 7:47 PM

That’s what I thought. You have no proof, merely your opinion- which you’re welcome to, of course.

I think the past few weeks have put the lie to “he’s not trying” or “he’s lazy.” Oh well, I guess if you can’t argue with his conservative policies you have to go after him with the best you’ve got….

cs89 on January 11, 2008 at 8:07 PM

It’s about time he hit that liberal Huckabee.

Go Fred!

kingrhino,

That is one of the funniest things I have ever read.

And damned true, too. LOL.

Dave R. on January 11, 2008 at 9:27 PM

Like I’ve said before, everytime a Republican is effective
the Liberals mount a campaign to destroy them,and for
Fred Thompson,it’s not to late,roughly ten months to go.

We need to get on the bandwagon,and get the bandwagon
rolling along,get Fred on commercials,radio spots,
interviews,it would be nice if Rush gave him radio time.
Get MKH to a video interview,have Michelle do a live
internet chat,followed up by Hot Air commentor questions!

I’m saving your brilliant essay as a word document to share with others, if you don’t mind.

a long quasi-conspiratorial rant

To the intellectually deficient perhaps, but to everyone else he’s just stating the obvious.

Nice going ! You sure enlightened me and I hope you will keep all of us enlightened in the future.

Sorry folks,
In my fevered attempt to post that brilliant history, I failed to mention that it is not my original work. Must have been all that beer………….
So feel free to share it with everyone.

Enjoy!
