Y'all probably remember this: Rush Limbaugh's Dominican Stag Party
When it happened, several media organizations immediately noted the DR's reputation for sexual tourism.
I never forget.
So when Limbaugh laid into Weiner today, I was ready. I called and made the point that Weiner's consensual exchange of pictures with adult partners was nobody's business, any more than was Limbaugh's Viagra-fueled trip to the Dominican Republic, a destination noted for its attraction to sex tourists.
Rush got very angry with me. And called me a liar, saying nothing I said was true. And then he insulted me for a long time.
I'll have the audio available at truthticker.com later today.
[UPDATE] Thanks to Detroit Mark in the comments, I can now provide a transcript:
For context, you should know that Limbaugh ranted about liberals acting like they are smarter than everyone else. Of course, Rush proclaims his intellectual superiority every single day.
Rush: Starting in Arlington Virginia this is Seth. Welcome sir, nice to have you on the EIB network, hello.
"Seth": Thank you Rush. I'm lookin' at this and I'm seeing two adults exchanging ... well, actually seven if there were six women ... exchanging pictures in a consentual way. And i guess it's none of my business. It was none of the reporter's business. It's none of anybody else's business. How is this different ... I mean you're talking about how "smart" everybody is, you talk about how smart you are every day ... but, how is this different from you going to, you know the sexual tourist destination of Dominican Republic with a bottle of viagra and having that sprayed all over the headlines. How did you like that? Why is this different?
Rush: Well, but ... what you describe about me isn't true. And I guess what you're suggesting here is that getting caught having sex affairs is only stupid when republicans do it.
"Seth": No, what I said ..
Rush (who by now has killed Seth's call): No, this ... you know you are, you're repeating internet rumors based in hatred and misinformation and typical brainlessness on the left. NONE of that took place. But it's people like you who present the rest of us with the greatest challenge we have in saving the country. Because general, glittering jewels of collosol ignorance like you, and your hate-filled partisanship ... are primarily responsible ... people just like you ... are primarily responsible for the precarious poisition this great nation finds itself in. Because you can't be counted on for genuine, decent citizenship. You can't be counted on to protect this country when it's under assault internally. You seek your jollies in false victories over your political enemies while your country is in the process of going down in flames. Its people like you that try to make excuses for reprobates like Weiner, and Clinton and so forth while immersing yoursellf in lies to make yourself feel good that present a problem for the rest of us. Feel sorry for ya. You're probably capable of much more than you're immersing yourself in. I gotta take a brief time out, we'll come back, we'll continue ... right after this.
