Rushnado


cjones09102017

Al Franken published a book in the 1990s before he became a United States Senator titled “Rush Limbaugh Is A Big Fat Idiot.” I’ll give that title a “ditto.”

Limbaugh is well-known for being a provocative flame thrower and pusher of absurdity in his attempts to take down liberalism. But, he’s gone beyond just being a national jerk throughout his career. Limbaugh was fake news before “fake news” was a term. Before the Donald Trump era, we just referred to what Limbaugh did as “bullshit.”

A couple days ago, Limbaugh floated the theory that hurricanes are hyped by the media to “advance this climate change agenda.” Limbaugh believes hurricanes are never as bad as predicted and that the media is only providing non-stop coverage to scare you into purchasing bottles of water and other supplies from local retailers. Limbaugh said there was a “symbiotic relationship between retailers and local media, and it’s related to money.”

On his show, Limbaugh said “The local media … reports in such a way as to create the panic way far out, which sends people into these stores to fill up with water and to fill up with batteries, and it becomes a never-ending repeated cycle,” he said. “And the two coexist. So the media benefits with the panic with increased eyeballs, and the retailers benefit from the panic with increased sales, and the TV companies benefit because they’re getting advertising dollars from the businesses that are seeing all this attention from customers.”

I made a post on social media about Limbaugh’s stupid comment, but I didn’t plan to draw a cartoon on it. And then, Limbaugh announced he’s evacuating Florida. Rush said, “May as well announce this. I’m not going to get into details because of the security nature of things, but it turns out that we will not be able to do the program here tomorrow,” he said on his Thursday radio show. “We’ll be on the air next week, folks, from parts unknown.”

I don’t know what unknown parts Rush will be airing his show from, but I’m pretty sure his head will be in its usual location, which is up his lying ass.

Rush has put his idiotic viewers’, who he refers to as “dittoheads,” lives in danger. Rush doesn’t want them to trust meteorologists and other scientists, even if they’re in danger…but Rush will ignore his own advice and yank his fat ass out of his Palm Beach home. Rush’s disregard for his listeners illustrates just how important they are to him.

I have a theory about advertisers. Every company that advertises on Rush’s show has supported him calling women “feminazis,” “sluts,” and “prostitutes.” Now, they’re financially supporting his putting lives in danger. Maybe, they shouldn’t be pulling their support because Rush is a disgusting, racist, misogynistic, crude, asshole who lies a lot. They should pull their advertising because he’s a public safety hazard.

When Rush Limbaugh tells his viewers not to sweat a category five hurricane, he is putting their lives in danger. If you listen to Rush, tell me if Katrina, Sandy, and Harvey weren’t as bad as predicted…or if they were worse. Do you wanna gamble with your life on the science of a guy who doesn’t understand how ice melts?

Is Rush Limbaugh a big fat idiot? Ditto.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through PayPal. Every $40 donation will receive a signed print. All donations will receive my eternal gratitude.

  1. I’ll see your ditto and raise you 100 dittos and 1000 Likes.
    Great cartoon. Great blog post.

    Comments to one of the WaPo articles about Rush talk about giving the Darwin Award (awarded POSTHUMOUSLY, of course, to those individuals who improve the human gene pool by removing themselves from it) to all of the dittoheads who follow Rush’s advice.

    I haven’t been able to find original audio of Rush’s “announcement” (EVEN on his own website, which BTW gave me a severe case of nausea, I don’t recommend it), but from the coverage I have seen he tries VERY hard to NOT actually say that he was wrong and he is hauling his fat ass out of Florida. He also DOES NOT TELL his Dittoheads to ignore what he said before and get themselves the hell out of Florida either.
    In retrospect, Clay, I loved your cartoon and your post, but I hate to say you were WAAAY too easy on that schmuck.

    1. After further thought I need to apologize. I think ANYTHING you or anyone else could possibly say would be way too easy on that schmuck. I would say that Rush is Pure Human Slime, but I doubt his Humanity, so I will just say that he is Pure Slime. Period.

    2. BTW I have to believe that many people have noticed that Rush, Alex Jones, 45*, McConnell, and friends share many similarities; they are overweight, lard-faced, balding (45* has a combover), evil, lying windbags. Give Ryan, Bannon, Hannity, et al a few more years and they will look the same.
      Must be a shared genetic aberration. Too bad they haven’t gotten the Darwin Award yet.

  2. Just like this lying crock of s**t to say that he’s going elsewhere but not suggest that his listeners might want to save their lives too. Wrong? Oh no, he couldn’t possibly have been wrong.

    (Not original with me) What’s the difference between Rush Limbaugh and the Hindenburg? One is a flaming Nazi gasbag, and the other’s a dirigible.

    A dear friend of mine who always thinks the best of everyone was reduced to sputtering, disgusted incoherence when informed that somebody– more than one, I think– married Rush Limbaugh. Reminds me of the woman who was asked why she had turned down the rich but ugly suitor: “Honey, I can’t go to bed drunk *every* night.”

  3. I live in Biloxi where we had a sure nuff hurricane. New Orleans had a flood.
    My house is at 19′. I had 4′ of storm surge in the house. Like an idiot I was at home, but had an upstairs that gave me some protection and a front row seat to the destruction of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I lived through it, but would never do it again. Rush should be tied to the peak of the Sunshine Bridge so he can give us frequent updates.
