This morning on the way to school I was listening to a radio show that was playing clips of Rush Limbaugh telling a Republican war veteran that he wasn't a true Republican because he didn't believe in torture. (If I was a Republican, I'd be thrilled to have this freak defining the role for me.)
At one point, Rush said something along the lines of: "Barack Obama is president because of a bunch of stupid, idiotic people," and I heard Big Kid gasp from the back seat.
"Why did he say dat, mom?"
"Because he's a bad man," I replied angrily. "Wait, that's not right for me to say. I don't know that he's a bad man," I lied. "I just know that he's a poor sport and very close-minded. Some people are open-minded and willing to try new things, give people a chance and respect the opinions of others. Other people think they are right no matter what, they already know everything, and anyone that doesn't agree with them is stupid and idiotic. He's mad because his guy didn't win and he hopes President Obama does a bad job so he can say he was right."
"He wants da president to do a bad job? I feel so mad right now. My brain is like shakin' around in my head, and it wants to pop out and punch dis guy in da eye."
"Well, that's not right either...but he does make a lot of people feel that way."
God, I love that kid. He is my boy, through and through.
You'll also be interested to know that, according to Rush, torture never killed anyone. Maybe he'll sign up for some? Perhaps we can round up a bunch of politically minded five year olds who want to punch him in the eye?
Of all the Oxycontin overdoses, why couldn't this fat fuck be one of them?
