In Which I Agree With David Limbaugh That Conservatives Should Not Listen To Propaganda!

From David Limbaugh (the equally stupid but not so rich brother of Rush Rimjob) and his latest analysis on NewsMax of whatever it is that lives in his rectum.

I don't care how many times I hear it, I refuse to believe that significant numbers of conservatives will stay home in November and thereby assist the Democratic Party to regain control of Congress.

David Limbaugh refuses to believe anything Republicans and conservatives say (who aren’t in the administration or the media).

Democrats and the Old Media have been working hard to create this perception for several months, citing poll after poll to support their claims.

By having the audacity to publish what likely Republican voters are actually saying!

It reminds me of the exit poll manipulation orchestrated by the Old Media and Democrat operatives in 2004 to create the GOP-deflating perception that John Kerry was winning big.

By reporting how the public were actually voting, instead of how they were supposed to vote!

But with the unveiling of the Foley scandal, there is an even bigger spring to their step – kind of like their perverse, gleeful reaction to problems with the delayed federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

Remember Geraldo Rivera’s tears of joy? Remember Anderson Cooper’s satiric anger?

Before Foley I gave conservatives more credit than to believe they would sit this election out over their disillusionment with Republicans concerning immigration and domestic spending. My confidence remains after Foley as well, despite push polling and other techniques designed to discourage conservative turnout.

David can’t describe those “other techniques” so that conservative voters won’t be able to adapt to them.

Conservatives are generally rational creatures and sophisticated enough to understand that the national interest will not be served by turning national security over to a party wholly incapable of safeguarding it for the sake of punishing Republicans.

Yet strangely they aren’t are so rational and sophisticated as to understand that they shouldn’t be expressing their opinions to pollsters and the media—it’s the RNC’s job to express the opinions of likely voters.

To the argument of some conservatives that losing the election will result in the nation eventually returning to its conservative roots, I say "nonsense."

David is absolutely correct. No matter how many times I read it, what he just wrote makes no sense!

We can't afford the luxury, during time of war and incalculable threats to our national security, our culture, our freedom and our sovereignty, of taking our ball and going home for a few critical years.

David is right again; with real wages down, no job growth and a record national debt we can’t afford luxury. And with incalculable threats to our national security, now is not the time to stop dealing with something incalculable.

I do not believe conservatives will deliver control to the party of tax and spend because Republicans haven't done enough to curb domestic spending.

Right once more!. The Republicans still need to get rid of taxation altogether and impose a direct tithe to reduce the spending of domestics.

My assessment is reinforced by news that the Bush tax cuts have unleashed a robust economy and explosive federal revenues that have reduced the deficit to 2 percent of GDP, lower than the 2.7 percent average of the last 40 years.

Absolutely right, David! The fact that GDP growth under Bush is 2.5% compared to 3.6% under Clinton and 3.5% under Reagan and that averaging the deficit-reduction rate to GDP over 40 years is irrelevant and that the national debt (as opposed to the deficit) is back where it was in Reagan’s last year—at a record high--is just not worth thinking about.

I don't believe conservatives will conspire to assign control over immigration to the wide-open-border Democrats, notwithstanding the Republicans' tardy and so far inadequate response to the immigration problem. My assessment is reinforced by news that Congress passed a measure to erect a 700-mile border fence.

A 700 mile border fence will send a clear message to illegal immigrants and Al Qaeda-types which is: if you ignore the other 1251 miles of border that isn’t fenced, we will catch you!

Conservative angst forced recalcitrant politicians to act. This is how you get results – not by replacing a highly imperfect party with an incomparably egregious one.

That’s right David!. Conservatives are excellent at ignoring a problem for five years and then reacting instantly to get a result, or as we like to say in math; "x"

And I especially don't believe social conservatives, because of their disappointment with Republicans over Foley, will turn to a militantly secular Democratic leadership to protect Washington pages from sexual predators. My assessment is reinforced by the immediate resignation of Foley and the Republican leadership's initiation of comprehensive investigations into the matter, promising full accountability for culpable Republicans.

Again, the voting base is expressing opinions independent of the Republican Party so quite rightly David refuses to believe them.

My optimism that conservatives will not allow the perfect to be the enemy of the good and stay home in November is further enhanced by Democrats recently overplaying their hand on the Foley scandal.

Right-on, David! The GOP are perfect, notwithstanding you just called them highly imperfect because compared to the incredibly low standards of secular Democrats the GOP is perfect!

Though they boasted for the longest time that they could trounce Republicans in November by a substantive debate on the issues, they've been studiously avoiding such a debate and resorting only to attacking Bush and scandalmongering.

The Democrats couldn’t even ban the debate on banning flag-burning!

But now that they think the Foley affair is tainting the entire Republican Party, Nancy Pelosi has gotten cocky enough to unveil her agenda for the first 100 hours of her speakership.
She'd better hope that she hasn't triggered a true national debate on the issues and unwittingly nationalized the congressional elections, something the Republicans hadn't managed to pull off.

Because... by making the control of the House of Representatives and thus national policies a referendum on the GOP majority instead of it simply being a series of un-related local elections that just coincidentally result in the formation of national policies, she'd be totally distorting the the meaning of the process--making it about the election of representatives who reflect a public consensus rather than maintenance of incumbents who ignore or disbelieve the opinions and wishes of their constituents and the electorate.

Can you imagine the Democrats winning a debate over national security when they've vigorously opposed almost every tool President Bush has tried to use to prosecute the war on terror? How would they gain from a true debate over Iraq when Democrats still don't have a plan and can't even decide whether they favor withdrawal, "timetables" or "benchmarks"?

Right again! I mean, really! George Bush has been very clear that he doesn’t believe in timetables or benchmarks. By refusing to leave Iraq and by keeping US successes a secret, Bush is keeping the terrorists guessing and on the defensive!

Can you imagine Democrats prevailing on a values debate where it would be emphasized that they actively promote the radical homosexual agenda and castigate one of the finest institutional exemplars of traditional values in our nation's history – the Boy Scouts – for their moral refusal to permit homosexuals to be scoutmasters?

Can you imagine the Republicans prevailing on a values debate where they actively promote a party political agenda over an individual’s homosexual agenda and then castigate one of the finest institutional exemplars of traditional values in our nation's history – the GOP – for their moral refusal to gay-bash a GOP member who had broken the law he himself wrote?

Does Nancy Pelosi truly support the National American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)
or just proudly march in parades with them and receive 90 percent approval from their ACLU enablers? Inquiring minds surely want to know.

Does Denny Hastert truly support NAMBLA and should he be praised for being sensitive to his subordinate colleagues NAMBLA-like leanings?

It is time for conservatives to ignore the Democrat and Old Media propaganda and vote in even greater numbers in November. If Democrats and the Old Media keep reporting that conservatives are going to stay home, they might be in store for the upset of their lives on Election Day – just maybe.

I agree with David! It is time indeed for conservatives to ignore the propaganda and vote!

betmo said...

big brother rush let it out on his show today that they are going to take that tactic- use words optimistically and appear to be so. they will try and be nice and optimistic to confuse dems. hand to god- from the lips of limbaugh the fatter. good to see it runs in the family- the rhetoric i mean. i don't know if this limbaugh is fat or not.

I love you 5th estate,.. I think your posting is perfect, logical, ... genius in its disecting really... it would have made just as much sense (maybe more so) without the "stupid" label to Limabaugh's brother. I tell this to every freaking left or right leaner I meet,... start calling people names and the messenger overwhelms the message,...
Other than that little opinion, I thing this is a great posting.

Truth-Pain said...

Dangit 5th!
I am overcome by guilt. Please disregard my last. Although I agree with the spirit of my critique, I am just as bad with other idiosyncrosies of style and have no flippin' right to question yours.
I hope I did not offend or demean the post in any way.

5th Estate said...

not at all truth-pain... I completely agree with you that the ad-hominem inclusion of "stupid" was not only unnecessary and frankly childish, or lame, but was also stylisticly pointless and actually detrimental to the intended wit of my post.

Aren't words great?!! Hope they are never taken away from us.

When a name fits...it only serves to strengthen the argument.

When it doesn't fit (as in the "stupid" remark's case--remember, Rush and David both have POPULAR VOICES--they're both making LOTS OF MOOLAH), I would agree with T-P completely!

so what if they make money? does making money equal popularity?

and it appears that 5th MORE than made the case of how "stupid" the Limbaugh line really is.

btw - for someone that has the bible as their number one favorite book, you sure are un-christian! why do you hate freedom of speech?

Carl said...

More to the point, does making money = being correct?

Vince McMahon owns the WWE. He makes more money in a day that both Limbaughs in a month. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want Vince McMahon arbiting my child's contact with perverts.

Hey 5th, you done cleaning out the IKEA warehouse yet? (I just added you to my blog roll)

5th Estate said...


thanks for the blog-roll add--very decent of you.
No chance of me clearing out IKEA's warehouse--they have a good design sense but necessarily much of their furniture is badly engineered and flimsy to keep prices low. That said the pieces I bought are nice to look at, very practical and a great value. I'd recommend anyone shopping for IKEA furniture to go for the more "expensive" stuff becuase you get a tangible improvement in quality (mostly).
