Rush Limbaugh Thinks the Icelandic Volcano Is Armageddon


Can you believe it?  Rush Limbaugh inferred on his radio show yesterday that the plume of smoke spreading over Europe from Iceland and grounding air traffic ( principally keeping President Obama from attending a State funeral in Poland) might be divine punishment for the passage of the Obama Health Care Bill.  I swear it's true The guy is totally nuts.Here's the quote:
"You know, a couple of days after the health care bill had been signed into law Obama ran around all over the country saying, “Hey, you know, I’m looking around. The earth hadn’t opened up. There’s no Armageddon out there. The birds are still chirping.” I think the earth has opened up. God may have replied. This volcano in Iceland has grounded more airplanes — airspace has more affected — than even after 9/11 because of this plume, because of this ash cloud over Northern and Western Europe. At the Paris airport they’re telling people to head to the train station to catch trains out of France, and when people get to the train station they’re telling people, “There aren’t any seats until at least April 22nd,” basically a week from now. It’s got everybody in a shutdown. Earth has opened up. I don’t know whether it’s a rebirth or Armageddon. Hopefully it’s a rebirth, God speaking."
Rush, honey........Get a grip!!! It's time to lay off the OxyContin. Everything isn't about you, sugarplum.  Everything isn't even about Obama,or American politics. Sometimes things happen in Iceland that are about the geology of Iceland. This may not be so good for the airlines, but Armageddon it's not. So just relax and try not to appear too whacko or they just might cart you off to rehab.

What a nut-job and a total attention seeker. Hope he is not being too taken seriously...

I am afraid that there are many who do indeed take him seriously-- all those right wing, gun-toting Sarah Palin fans for starters. His website has pagerank 6--need I say more?

Thanks to the *other* whackos in America who consider anything he says as carved in stone, this particular whacko laughs all the way to the bank.

you are right about that Jama :-)

You all are the ones who are taking Limbaugh too seriously! As an American Limbaugh listener I can tell you he is not being any more LITERAL in his reference to the volcano than Pres. Obama was in referencing the effects of his health care legislation. Both are METAPHORICALLY referencing whether or not the health-system overhaul will be "catastrophic" in its impact.

ahhhh so he was just joking? Giving it back to Obama? so when the President said " the sky didn't open up and there is no Armageddon" re passage of healthcare reform, Rush was just kidding when he said God's reply is this ash cloud that is lousing up travel in Europe. He knows that isn't true and he is just joking around with his pal President Obama-- oh, I get it now. Thanks:-)

Gotta love Limbag's ditto heads. They hang on his every word, and when someone calls their Grand Pooh Bah out, they all hide under the cloak of freedom of speech. And anyway, he was just kidding. Yep, Rush is a real sharp satirist. He must be; Sarah Palin certified him as auch after that kerfuffle over tye "R" word.

pinkpackrat said...

Ain't it the truth :-) Rush just has such a great sense of humor, doesn't he? Wonder if he is familiar with " irony" LOL

Amy Beth said...

not irony... just oxony!
