    how about this from today's Limbaugh pile of st(r)eaming excrement:

    RUSH: Let's go back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites, the archives. Here's Ken Rogulski, our man in Detroit at WJR, our blowtorch affiliate there. In October 2009, people were in line for money from Obama's stimulus, and Ken Rogulski went out and talked to 'em.

    ROGULSKI: Why are you here?

    WOMAN #1: To get some money.

    ROGULSKI: What kind of money?

    WOMAN #1: Obama money.

    ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?

    WOMAN #1: Obama.

    ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?

    WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.

    WOMAN #2: And we love him.

    WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!

    WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)

    RUSH: It's really a sad, sad day. Thousands of people were lined up for vouchers for something that was not available in any sort of plentiful supply. Most of these people ended up getting nothing, but they thought they were there to get money from Obama. From Obama's stash. See, I'd be embarrassed if I were president and this kind of stuff happened. But the point is: Do you think these people even know that Mitt Romney spoke to a bunch of fundraisers and talked about the 47%? Do you think they even know this? And that's being cited as the reason why Romney lost the election and the polls have plunged. It's all over.

    So Rogulski kept talking to these people in Detroit hoping to get some money for from Obama's stimulus. It's October 2009.

    ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?

    WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.

    ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?

    WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.

    ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?

    WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.

    ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?

    WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.

    ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?

    WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.

    ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

    RUSH: And, now, ladies and gentlemen, we move to Cleveland, Ohio. Yesterday in Bedford (I think it's near Cleveland) outside a Romney campaign event, an unidentified reporter and a woman have this little exchange about why she's protesting Romney and supporting Obama.

    WOMAN: Obama!

    REPORTER: You got an Obama phone?

    WOMAN: (screaming) Yes! Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!

    REPORTER: He gave you a phone?

    WOMAN: He gonna do more!

    REPORTER: How did he give you a phone?

    WOMAN: You sign up. If you're... If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability...

    REPORTER: Okay, what's wrong with Romney, again?

    WOMAN: Romney, he sucks! Bad!

    RUSH: So these are the people that don't like Romney because of what he said about 47%? No, these are the 47%! (laughing) Yeah, I'll play it again. These are the 47%. Notice this guy...? Is it a guy? It's a woman. (It's my hearing. I'm sorry.) She knows. She knows how to get this free Obama phone. She knows everything about it. She may not know who George Washington is or Abraham Lincoln, but she knows how to get an Obama phone, and she knows that Romney sucks, and she ends up at a Romney rally.

    How did she get there?

    Here it is again...

    (replaying of sound bite)

    RUSH: You want to hear it one more time? Okay. Here's one more time...

    (replaying of sound bite)

    RUSH: You know, folks...

    (playing of parody song: You Just Need Reeducation)

    RUSH: We wonder why we're losing the country, maybe, and why we ask that question. (song continues) The EIB Network. El Rushbo on the radio. (song continues)

    (replaying of sound bite)

    RUSH: And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen.

    Oh, by the way, Obama himself was in Bowling Green, Ohio, yesterday at Bowling Green University for a campaign event. Listen to this from President Bump in the Road.

    OBAMA: I don't believe we can get very far, uh, with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives.

    FOLLOWERS: (smattering of applause)

    OBAMA: And I've gotta tell you, as I travel around Ohio and as I look out on this crowd, I don't see a lot of victims. I see hardworkin' Ohioans. That's what I see.

    RUSH: How in the hell are you missing the idiots?

    This ain't even dog whistles.....this is the whole pit bull!!!

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
