Come on quiverring liberals, take the Rush challenge! (http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-klavan29-2009mar29,0,5456892.story)

From the LA Times, a challenge to the sissies! :D


If you are reading this newspaper, the likelihood is that you agree with the Obama administration's recent attacks on conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh. That's the likelihood; here's the certainty: You've never listened to Rush Limbaugh.

Oh no, you haven't. Whenever I interrupt a liberal's anti-Limbaugh rant to point out that the ranter has never actually listened to the man, he always says the same thing: "I've heard him!"

On further questioning, it always turns out that by "heard him," he means he's heard the selected excerpts spoon-fed him by the distortion-mongers of the mainstream media. These excerpts are specifically designed to accomplish one thing: to make sure you never actually listen to Limbaugh's show, never actually give him a fair chance to speak his piece to you directly.

By lifting some typically Rushian piece of outrageous hilarity completely out of context, the distortion gang knows full well it can get you to widen your eyes and open your mouth in the universal sign of Liberal Outrage. Your scrawny chest swelling with a warm sense of completely unearned righteousness, you will turn to your second spouse and say, "I'm not a liberal, I'm a moderate, and I'm tolerant of a wide range of differing views -- but this goes too far!"


There is more untruthfulness in that statement than in a speech by President Obama. Even the commas are self-deceiving. You're not a moderate or you wouldn't be reading this newspaper. You're not tolerant of a wide range of views; you are tolerant of a narrow spectrum of variations on your views. And, whatever you claim, you still haven't listened to Rush Limbaugh.

snip...


Therefore, I am throwing down my gauntlet at your quivering liberal feet. I hereby issue my challenge -- the Limbaugh Challenge: Listen to the show. Not for five minutes but for several hours: an hour a day for several days. Consider what he has to say -- the real policy material under the jokes and teasing bluster. Do what your intellectual keepers do not want you to do and keep an open mind. Ask yourself: What's he getting at? Why does he say the things he says? Why do so many people of goodwill -- like that nice Mr. Klavan -- agree with him?

The mainstream media (a.k.a. the Matrix) don't want you to listen to Limbaugh because they're afraid he'll wake you up and set you free of their worldview. You don't want to listen to him because you're afraid of the same thing.

Don't believe me? Well, then, gird your loins. Gather your courage. Accept the Limbaugh Challenge. See what happens.

I dare you.

The comments are funny, including...wait for it....a link to a list of selected excerpts from the distortion-mongers of the mainstream media. You can lead a horse to water folks, but you can't make them drink it.

I'm not a Limbaugh fan (or not of that Limbaugh, anyway) but I have listened to him more in the past 4 weeks than in the previous 15 years. He's a showman and a blowhard but he doesn't make things up - he doesn't need to that.

If you hold his head under the water long enough, he can't help but drink some. :D

It's the same way with liberals on a variety of publications and commentators. I once had someone get in my face for reading the American Spectator. When I asked him if he'd ever read it, he said that he didn't have to. I told him that I didn't have to, either, but until he had his way and burned it, I'd continue to do so.

I held off listening to him for years. But I do have to say when I finally started listening to his show - I really enjoy it. :) I love the way he jokes and the facts and the insight them man offers are amazing. :)

Response A: But...but...but...American's don't torture! :D
Response B: I'm with Policon, we just need to hold the libs under in the tank a little bit longer than usual. One way or another, it'll take care of the problem.

It's not torture. It's mercy. Torture would be having to listen to them drone on and on and on and on and on . . . .:rolleyes:

The fact that they were born liberals is enough torture for them. They will never be happy with life and all the women will end up looking like Hilary Clinton when they are older :D

I actually avoided listening to Rush because of what I heard on the media. I would agree with liberals that he was an idiot. But then I realized I was stupid and I listening to him in the car for a while and I totally agreed with him on a lot of stuff! Goes to show that even conservatives at heart can be blinded by the media to hate fellow conservatives.

All people are born liberals, only we don't call them that, we call them babies. Like liberals, babies cry, crap themselves and require parental supervision to keep from doing themselves harm. Eventually, some babies learn to feed and clothe themselves and take responsibility for their actions. Conservatives are liberals who grew up.

oooohhhhhh is that the problem? I'm not holding them under long enough? :D
Exactly. Now go out there and hold a liberal's head under water until he either stops arguing for socialism or stops breathing, whichever comes first. :D

Yes, well consider that Limbaugh has been 'taking the arrows' for years now.
I have listened to Rush since 1989, so to the rest of you 'Johnny-come-lately's

There should be a contest to see if anyone can come with the word or words to adequately describe how ugly that Woman is.
I thought I was reasonably good with the English language, but it's light years beyond my capabilities.

Would Mr. Klavan mind pointed out one example of the President 'attacking' Rush (not the band, the blowhard)??

Klavan?? Isn't that code for something?

I consider Limbaugh a self aggrandizing self promoting annoying blusterer. He bugs the shit out of me.

Having said that, I HAVE listened to far more than 2 hours in my life and I like his actual positions on many issues. And if his style works for him it isn't my damn business. I am just not his target market I guess :D

I'm in that group. But here's an idea... try him in print. Read the scripts of his shows.

If I don't want to hear him, I can read him. . .and that is about as good, I think.:D

Then again, I like Red Eye on Fox. :D

Boortz and Levin are my top two. Laura Ingraham and Reagan are up there too! As Cuesi said just read the transcripts on his web site to get the gist of Rush.

Yeah, In between patting himself on the back his message is OK. But I really don't have time to listen to him these days. It's enough knowing he gives people like Pelosi heartburn :D
