“See, in my humble opinion, folks, if you believe in God, then intellectually you cannot believe in manmade global warming.”

“You must be either agnostic or atheistic to believe that man controls something that he can’t create,” he continued.

Well, that’s just stupid.

This is why, when I posted a few months ago about how eschatology of the conservative kind leads to these beliefs, I was able to call it bad theology. This is the perfect example of this. It is a false dichotomy.

But, he is the leader of the Republican Party…

  1. Although Rush Limbaugh is among the more insecure people I’ve met in my life, he’s more symptom that disease in religion-mad America. To be sure, he feeds the anti-intellectual undercurrent that courses just beneath the surface of society. Nor is he unique as a useful idiot for the deep pockets funding America’s right-wing crazies. Among his predecessors were Westbrook Pegler, Fulton Lewis, and Bill McBirnie’s The Voice Of Americanism.
    Both intellectually and emotionally Limbaugh is still in high school. It is perhaps charitable to say that he could be an ideal poster child for Dan Kiley’s pop-psychology Peter Pan Syndrome. His string of failed marriages further suggests Limbaugh is a perpetual first boyfriend. Whether at the microphone or in bed, it’s all about him. In short, Limbaugh never grew up.

  2. I got a good chuckle a day or two ago upon learning that Rush Limbaugh declined (or was seriously considering declining, depending on how one interprets his bumpkin balderdash) the offer to moderate the Republican presidential debates in 2016 because he was “too famous.” More realistically, the impresario of buffoonery is little more than a latter day incarnation of an insecure Wizard of Oz only comfortable when he is pulling the levers behind a radio broadcast curtain.

    1. He doesn’t have guests on his show, he accuses callers who were former Republicans “seminar callers” because he can’t handle the conversations, and does all kinds of that nonsense to prevent himself from having to deal with intelligent disagreement.

      His fans devote themselves to calling themselves “dittoheads.”

      The little boy never grew up and keeps himself protected from responsibility. It’s very, very sad.

      Listen to him talk about religion or science or anything else he doesn’t understand, and he sounds like any other teenager. His explanation for why he dropped out of college? Because he was smarter than his professors.

      I know a lot of people who thought that in our freshman years. By the time we were sophomores, we realized that we were wrong. The guy’s on the high side of 50 and hasn’t hit the maturity level of the average 20 year old.

      1. Try actually talking to him sometime. Limbaugh is a cross between a buffoon and a parrot. His genius lies in his ability to tap into the strong anti-intellectual undercurrent that courses through America.
