As noted here and elsewhere, there has been whining all week by Hannity, Beck and their ilk about Wanda Sykes making fun of Rush Limbaugh, and quite a bit of criticism of Obama for appearing to find it funny.
But this is clearly a case where the pot should do a color check before making observations about the kettle. I just got through two hours of Limbaugh (minus bouncing in an out of the car making delivery stops) and jotted down a list of points he made, approximately in order:
-- He made fun of how Nancy Pelosi blinks.
-- He referred to Obama as "The Messiah" (twice).
-- He accused Obama of saying during the campaign that "terrorists are good guys."
-- He said that Obama's base is "anti-American."
-- He compared Obama unfavorably to Hugo Chavez.
-- He accused Obama of "creeping socialism."
-- He referred (twice) to Obama's inauguration as his "immaculation."
-- He said that Obama "denies God."
-- He said that Obama believes that American soldiers "rape and murder."
-- He accused Obama of having said that every successful American is corrupted.
-- He summarized an Obama commencement address to Arizona graduates with two words: "America sucks."
And Obama is supposed to apologize for chuckling at the suggestion that Limbaugh might have kidney failure? Obama should instead get some sort of medal for restraint for not rolling on the floor guffawing.
