When bimbo talk show host Rush Limbaugh recently interviewed bimbo presidential adviser Karl Rove on the radio, things quickly turned into an episode of mutual masturbation.
That might be the only way to describe the level of unreality they managed to jointly achieve.
For instance, in one short exchange between them, Rove begins by asserting that people who harbor any doubts about Bush are, "sort of elite, effete snobs who can’t hold a candle to this guy. What they don’t like about him is that he is common sense, that he is Middle America.”
That statement alone is so far out it must be considered masturbatory. In current poles, over 70% of Americans -- about 210 million people -- have serious doubts about George Bush. Are all of those millions "elite, effete snobs"? Is it possible that not one of those 210 million people thinks well enough, is sharp enough, to at least "hold a candle" to one of the world's foremost village idiots?
Yet, Limbaugh, with half his brain tied behind his back, easily swallows Rove's happy ejaculation. He asserts the reason that Bush critics are frustrated with the President is because the President “outsmarts ‘em.” But the only people the President has outsmarted are Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, and the less than 90 million out of 300 million Americans who still support the President. Limbaugh is simply indulging himself by joining in Rove's wild fantasy.
Comedy aside, it's unlikely that critics of Bush are worried about the President outsmarting them. During their six years in office, neither Bush nor his staff have shown themselves to be smart. True, they have surprised us. But not with their brains -- with their blunders.
Bush is a loose cannon. He combines at least two traits that make him unpredictable: First, he is delusional. Second, he is lawless. Like any loose cannon, there is no telling what he will do, except that it's unlikely to be constructive.
