The Outer Limits

Q: What happens when Glenn Beck invites Rush Limbaugh on his show?

A: Hysterical speculation about “hidden agendas” and a “secret army” and other hypothetically nefarious subterfuge leading to… well, something. Glenn and Rush aren’t exactly certain what (the threat of a sudden Communist coup d’état perhaps?), but most certainly it’s “dangerous” and SCARY!!!

Alex Jones must be kind of pissed that these guys are now horning in so aggressively on his bailiwick of wild-eyed, lunatic fringe nuttiness and freaked-out paranoia — and, it has to be admitted, importing it with a considerable degree of success into the mainstream of the “conservative media ” (and yes, Rush did actually use that expression).

Update: Uh oh! Bad news for Beck, Rush and their ilk. But then I guess that the 79% of people in favour of having a federal government health insurance option on the table aren’t “real” patriotic Americans, but are Communist/Fascist thugs, Obamacrat bullies, leftist zombies, baby killers and chainsaw murderers…

Update2: Don’t you just hate those “ANGRY liberals”…?

    What Phillip K Dick novel are those two living in?

  2. I loved the remark that the MSM are now just stenographers for the administration. Hmmm. Where have I heard that before?

  3. counter-coulter

    If only there actually were black helicopters coming for Beck and Limbaugh….if only…

  4. Takeaway from that: “This is mostly a debate being had among policy elites and the relatively small fraction of the public that is highly knowledgeable and engaged about health care reform; for most others, the details are lost on them.”

  5. Funny stuff, Red. Excellent vid. Never been a fan of either of these loudmouths.

  6. Glad you enjoyed it. They’re incredibly wearisome, aren’t they?

  7. Er, Red, was my comment last night somehow out of line?

    Looks like it was deleted….

  8. What the hard right in the U.S. fail to acknoweldge is that they already have a public health option.. which is to be incredibly poor or wait to become a senior.. and you’ll get medicare or medicaid.. so, all of the hysteria is probably a little misplaced about “the edge of the wedge” and all that stupidity. Sometimes, what is needed is not a debate, but a discussion.. and I’m not seeing that happen. Certainly not from Beck and Limbaugh..

    It’s funny – but the Republican’s great success was wrestling the “small guy” away from the Democratic party, which the democratic party walked right into by positioning themselves as a party of “progressives” which most Americans identified as “eletist”. Slowly, but surely, the tables have turned.. and the refusal of the Republicans to recognize that the vast majority of the “small guys” in the U.S. want and need health reform will continue to be their undoing..
