Defending Rush Limbaugh

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Our local paper ran this cartoon today. I was immediately suspicious about the quote, “James Earl Ray deserves a posthumous medal of honor.”  Limbaugh is a lot of things but not a sheet-wearing, cross burning, out-loud racist.

So I went to www.snopes.com which is a site that debunks urban legends and all sorts of myths.  As I suspected, there’s not a shred of evidence to disprove his denial of the statement.  Not a tape nor a transcript – it’s just made-up horseshit.

There ARE extreme right-wing, tinfoil hat wing nuts in this country.  I’ve called them out plenty of times in this blog.  But you would be extremely naive to believe there aren’t an equal number of extreme left-wing wing nuts also.  They wear snail-darter, earth-friendly, green hats, knitted out of recycled sequoia chips.

Doesn’t Rush of Flatulence say enough awful things without making stuff up?

Better Not Eat The Wedding Cake

Monday, March 12th, 2012

“I love Michelle. I have never met anyone like her,” said Isakin Jonsson, about his bride-to-be, Michelle Gustafsson.  That may be the understatement of the year since his pierced fiancé, who goes by the name “Vampire Woman,” murdered a man in 2010 and drank his blood.

Jonsson, nicknamed the ‘Skara Cannibal’, is no angel either.  In 2011, he was convicted of stabbing his girlfriend to death, cutting off her head and then eating parts of her body.

The Swedish killers found love in a high security institution for the criminally insane.  Although it’s doubtful the lovers will ever leave their romantic hideaway, they would like to settle down in the outside world.

“We want to live together, keep dogs and spend time on our hobbies, piercing and tattoos,” Gustafsson said.

Although most people would say they have a few screws loose, the couple would contend the only loose screws are on the two-dozen piercings they share.
