Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Rush Limbaugh, the largest and loudest of the AM blowhards, has once again made an ass of himself.

Not only is this a completely ignorant comment about something he clearly doesn't understand (I know, that's an everyday occurance for Rush) but it's also a very revealing statement about the radical right. The article goes on to say:

Railed against multicultural education? What year is this, 1805? What is wrong with understanding other cultures? Unless of course you're a racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobe.

Do you find it odd that Rush thinks it's important for our youth to know about Adolf Hitler but not for them to understand the Middle Eastern culture? If you read the opinion piece by Molly Bingham that I linked to the other day, she makes the case that we will never have peace in the Middle East unless we understand who and what we are dealing with.

But Rush doesn't want to understand. Rush would rather live in his oxycontin-colored world and believe that everything is okay as long as Georgie-boy says it is. His Nazi-like view of other cultures is truly alarming. However, not nearly as alarming as the millions of listeners that absorb his bullshit without ever stopping to question it. Hey fat ass, there are literally hundreds of other countries in this world. We have to deal with them when it comes to world affairs. Don't you think it would make sense for our future generations to understand what they are like?

Oh, and another thing. Unless you're 100% Native American, your ancestors came here from another country, it just wasn't called multiculturalism at the time. Back then it was called immigration. A lot of people did it. Why do you think our country is called the melting pot of the world? Hint: It had nothing to do with the fondue craze of the seventies.

In case you were wondering, Rush was completely wrong about the students not knowing anything about history.

Rush, you are a dickhead! You sit on your ass and bloviate about things you know nothing of while you hide behind your microphone. You are not an educator. Don't pretend like you know what it's about and what it should be doing. I'll tell you what, you refrain from pretending like you know something about education and I'll stop pretending like I know anything about doctor shopping. What do you say? We got a deal?

SIDENOTE: The Frist watch has now entered day four and still no vote. Instead of responding with the vote that he claims the American people want, Frist has decided to resort to the age-old tried-and-true Republican method of smearing the shit out of their opponent. The guys over at dailyKos have the story. It's almost laughable it's so pathetic.

Have a great weekend! I'll see you Monday night.
