Who’s REALLY behind the BP Gulf Coast oil spill?
Why, Rush Limbaugh suggests it’s really environmentalists (which of course means liberals which of course to him means Democrats.). So now it was really an inside job.
It’s gotten to the point where the words “beneath contempt” are too far above what is needed to describe Limbaugh.
UPDATE: Mediaite has an interesting analysis of Limbaugh’s comments, putting it within the context of an increasingly frantic skirmish among talkers to get attention:
Which leads to the possible reasoning behind this kind of comment. Perhaps Limbaugh does legitimately believe that the Obama administration is ruthless enough to destroy the economy of the state of Louisiana if it means passing Cap and Trade. Maybe they just really hate Bobby Jindal. But the reality of American right-wing infotainment is that the conspiracy theory competition out there is getting increasingly cutthroat. Anyone who caught last night’s episode of Glenn Beck and tried to follow his Goldman Sachs/Emerald Cities/SEIU/AFL-CIO/Apollo Alliance/Obama “Crime Inc.” presentation is well aware of that. And Limbaugh has been struggling to enhance his message to stay relevant; his recent scandalous comments show he hasn’t been on his top game lately. His shock value fleeting, he could have chosen to go to the oldest trick in the book: taking a completely apolitical problem and linking it to political enemy, somehow.
Yet, in this case, it lowers the bar even more for Limbaugh. Even his harshest critics would not have predicted he would go this…low.
