Paul Begala calls Rush Limbaugh “corpulent drug addict”

Newsbusters reports with video:

CNN’s Paul Begala, in response to Friday’s announcement that former Maryland governor Michael Steele had been named Republican National Committee chairman, said, “The real leader of the Republican Party in America today is a corpulent drug addict with an AM radio talk show, Rush Limbaugh.”

And what does that make the leader of the democratic party, I wonder?  Here’s an interesting and quite funny video of some prominent democrats, including Barack Obama, falling all over themselves to tell us all about their drug use.

Mr. Begala also added:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is “very bitter, and divisive,” “Obama is stylistically much more like Reagan,” and that George W. Bush was a “spectacularly lazy president.”

And how bitter and divisive is that?

But at least Gov. Sarah Palin and George W. Bush are public figures and in politics.  Rush Limbaugh is a private citizen practicing his profession, the one he has had now for about 20 years, and isn’t it a bit of a stretch to elevate him to the level of the “leader of the republican party?”

    He is a 3 times divorced drug addict, and draft dodger. He is also a single “Christian” and Viagra user. He has been caught twice with illegal drugs. A great leader for the “Conservative” movement.

    Thing is, he is not the leader of anything. Why give him such stature? He is a talk radio host. Nothing more. I don’t think anybody is out here waiting to hear what Rush Limbaugh has to say before they form an opinion.

  4. But Obama has never used drugs?Sorry there are photos that came out and circulated the internet of Obama smoking Pot then there was the Cocaine use…. Obama who is Vera Baker and why is she living in Martinique. The Leader of the Free World wants to put a Talk Radio Personality through a Purity Test? The same kind James Carville described the Republicans put Bill Clinton through? Obama supporters really believe there are no more skeletons in Obama’s closet. I have a bridge in NYC I want to sell you.

    Clinton and Carville didn’t call themselves the leader of the so-called “Conservative” movement. I don’t hear any “Conservatives” questioning how Rush Limbaugh is a Draft Dodger, and 3 times divorced drug addict and single “Christian” that uses Viagra. Maybe that’s because of the hypocrisy the whole “Conservative ” movement. I guess “Conservative” doesn’t really mean “Conservative ” anymore if Rush Limbaugh is in charge.


  6. Rush Limbaugh is holding NO elected or appointed public office NONE.

    This is nothing but Liberal CRAP and if Begala wants the ONE to go through a Purity Test like Bill Clinton was subjected to – he should keep up taking Shots at Rush Limbaugh. Mud gets slung in both directions.


  7. bellalu0

    Rush Limbaugh has not been elected to anything. Further, he has not been appointed to any public office. He talks. He is a private citizen. It is unbelievable that the President of the United States is listening to him. Could it be the disease that so many liberals seem to suffer from — thin skin?

    And as far as Paul Begala goes, maybe we should find out what’s in his medicine cabinet.


  8. stophate

    Maybe some people in the Republican Party and the Conservative Movement need to tell Rush Limbaugh that he doesn’t run the Party. Because they sure are afraid to tell him when he over steps his bounds. As we all saw this week when the “throwing bricks” comment were made. An elected official made a more than public apology and basically “bent over” for El Rushbo. Then all the little boys got into a row and voted exactly how Rush Limbaugh, the 3 times divorced, drug addict, draft dodger and single Christian Viagra user told them too.


  9. bellalu0

    The republicans in the U. S. House voted exactly like I wanted them to. Yes, they did. Thank you. I hope the Senate does the same thing.



  10. Bella,

    Progressives think if they are louder hurling insults that means they are “Right” the truth is Obama is no boy scout and if they keep it up they are inviting a return of the Purity Test…short memories they forget just what that amounted to for Bill Clinton when he was President non stop coverage of a White House Interns Blue Dress. Let them sling mud they are not going to like it when it comes back and hits “The One” What goes around comes around Liberals think they just invented the mud slinging game? Short memories.

    Keith Olbermann comes to mind here. He ranted against President Bush for eight years, not on the radio, but on a major cable news network, and I don’t believe I once heard Bush even speak his name. In ten short days, our current president has elevated Rush Limbaugh to national prominence.

    Comes across a little whiny and childish to me.


  12. Bella

    Chickaboomer pointed out that Keith’s present “Significant Other” might have been underage when they were first involved. Marty posted some records for KO, and they show her parent’s address, the thing is at the time she wasn’t of age. Yeah People in Glass Houses shouldn’t throw stones.

    Let me see if I can find it in Marty’s blog archive.

    That little litany against Rush Limbaugh fairly smacks of hatred, and more so every time it’s repeated. I guess hatred is okay when it’s directed at anyone on the Right.


  14. boobymcboob

    bay, would you like a tissue for your tears? it seems the truth has bit you in the ass and not the dreaded hatred bug you speak of. rush is a drug addict, rush is drug addict, rush is a drug addict, see it just rolls of the tounge. but wait, you say he’s a recovering drug addict? so is the former crack whore that stands in front of the corner bodega across from my apt. she has been clean four years and suck you off for the #4 eggroll platter at the chineses a block away and will give you her opinion on why she hopes obama fails if your spring for a jumbo fruit punch. she could be your friend like rush. unless you feel her opinion is less worthy because she is a drug addict.


  15. bellalu0

    And who’s a drug addict? I hear the stuff makes you go uh, uh, uh a whole lot and take offense at the slightest little criticism.

    “”Long before the national media spotlight began to shine on every twist and turn of his life’s journey, Barack Obama had this to say about himself: “Junkie. Pothead. That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. . . . I got high”””

    “””I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.”””

    Of course, Rush Limbaugh does not have the power of the United States government at his fingertips. Makes you feel real comfortable, doesn’t it.


  16. David A. Garcia

    Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer who is very well paid, the guy makes millions telling conservatives what they want to hear. He spouts, ” I told you so’s” and plants seeds of adverse consequences about whatevers as opportunities present themselves, like a thief that takes advantage of there victims.

    He just puts out a message in sublte forms of what White Conservative America are saying when they do not have to be worried about being politically correct.


  17. bellalu0

    Keith Olbermann is somewhat of a parallel except that he pretends to be and passes himself off as a real journalist on a network that bills themselves as “the place for politics.” Let’s bring in Limbaugh and have him moderate a debate or cover election results. See how that goes over.

    I have listened to him the last couple of days though, since he has been catapulted to national prominence by his enemies just to see what all the fuss is about.
