Did I get this right? Did the all seeing, all hearing, MahaRushie just call the tea party whackjobs lynch mobs? Surely not:

A lynch mob is expanding: the peasants with their pitchforks surrounding the corporate headquarters of AIG, demanding heads. Death threats are pouring in. All of this being ginned up by the Obama administration.” Limbaugh later claimed, “This $500,000 limit on executive pay — let me tell you why it won’t work. New York City will die. New York City needs a whole bunch of people being paid a whole lot of money, so they can tax their butts off, so that the city can maintain its stupid streets, potholes, and welfare state. Without the super wealthy in New York, it’s over. … This — it’s just a populist ruse. It’s just designed to people go, ‘Yeah, yeah!’

So are these teabaggers protesting the Bush/Paulson stimulus or obscene executive bonuses at AIG? Can someone clear me up on this one?

  • Oh yeah he did.

    Rush is a right-wing blowhard of the corporatist variety. If these guys were protesting the Obama administration he’d be cheering them on and probably funding the effort, but since the target of their ire is AIG and the bailout recipients he’s forced to choose between “the people” and the wealthy elite.

    Guess where his loyalties lie?

    Rush is also a right wing blowhard of the corpulent variety.
