The Left-wing hacks of the MSM are at it again today peddling their filth and stupidity with the same vigor that John Kerry pressed his record as a war hero during the 2004 Presidential campaign. Apparently, Rush Limbaugh was detained at the Palm Beach International Airport because customs agents found a bottle of Viagra in his suitcase with a different name on the label. According to Rush's lawyer, his doctors name was used instead of Rush's in order to preserve his privacy. Why is it that such a trivial story about a man who holds no political office is so relevant that even the New York Times made mention of it? I guess when it comes to invading the personal lives of conservatives the Left develops a much more restrictive view of the concept of "privacy."
The reason the lap dogs of ignorance are so full of froth when Rush is involved is obvious. He has successfully done what they are totally incapable of. Anyone listen to Air America? He speaks to a wide audience about his views and has developed a following that the fools of the MSM would drool for. So instead of listening to what he has to say and coming up with logical counter-arguments and positions, they hysterically bemoan those who have trumped them at every step and try to personally destroy them. If the Elites of the Left did not view the rest of America as a parking lot filled with morons who are too stupid to understand their nuanced views, perhaps they would have more success in communicating.
Of course, that would never happen so instead we get frivolous stories about Limbaugh while Left-Wing charlatans like Arianna Huffington are left unscathed. It is certainly interesting how no one seems to question the integrity of this hack now that she has had a mid-life conversion to liberalism. The Huffington Post is eagerly followed without question, but I wonder who she is and what are her motivations. She was originally married to a conservative Congressman who used his fortune to run against Diane Feinstein in 1994 in one of the most nasty and vitriolic races in history. Ms. Huffington aggressively pursued this campaign in the name of conservatism. Ultimately, Feinstein was re-elected, the marriage dissolved when it was revealed that her husband was gay, they divorced and she then became part of the screaming hordes of the Left.
Why such a conversion? I've heard many examples of those who have become more conservative as they age, but it is quite perplexing that such a change would occur in this manner. I would suggest that after failing to succeed using conservative positions, this clever minx tried the alternative approach (as did her ex-husband) in order to generate fame, fortune and power. Although conservatives were not dumb enough to buy her arguments, the intellects of the Left have fallen right into line. They truly are like lemmings when it comes to politics, which is sad. Any one who says what they want to hear gets an easy pass no matter how disingenuous while those with opposing viewpoints are attacked with gusto. Such is the state of modern day Leftists.
