  •  I read the transcript... (0+ / 0-)

    ...and I thought it was perfectly clear that he was not taking the pro-pedophilia stance, he was mocking it.  

    •  it is clear all together in reading but he wasn't (0+ / 0-)

      punctuating that sarcasm when he was saying it. there are whole sentences that could be taken out of context (which he does all the time) that sounded weird because if you were to say them out loud you would expect to hear the sarcasm. but it wasn't there. it was very monotone.

      maybe his whole program is getting that way. the sarcasm i've heard in recent months once in while listening is a bit different - because as i say, much of his audience isn't used to it and wouldn't recognize sarcasm.

        Limbaugh's audience?  He's been sarcastic ever since I first listened to him, which was over twenty years ago.  I think his audience knows sarcasm.  On the other hand, from reading some of the comments here, I think some of us might need a refresher course on recognizing sarcasm.

        •  he's always had to exaggerate it. most of his (0+ / 0-)

          audience wouldn't recognize it. only the smarter and therefore sicker dittoheads would recognize it.

          i don't know what limbaugh you've been listening to but his sarcasm has always been explained by his intonation or the fact most of it is repeated and they know what it is that way. their sarcasm is based in bigotry and snobbery and ignorance - its not something they have to think about - or most of them would miss it.
