Stop the presses! For once, John Boehner speaks the truth!


The first thing you need to know here is that right-wing talk radio has a finite audience. There are only so many beady-eyed weirdos available to listen to that crap.

Consequently, the competition among wingnut blabbers on radio is intense. Each of them feels pressured to raise the ante almost every day. They know that the most outrageous broadcasters are the ones who will draw the biggest audiences.

This inescapable of life has finally occurred to Republican House Speaker John Boehner, as we see HERE:

Boehner appeared on The Golf Channel with David Feherty last night and lamented how things are so partisan these days, he can’t even play a game of golf with President Obama without people getting so worked up.

“20 years ago, when we won the first Republican majority in 40 years, there was one radio talk show host nobody had ever heard of,” he said. “There was one cable news channel that just did news. And you look at today, you’ve got hundreds of radio talk show hosts all trying to outdo themselves by going further right and further right.”

That one unnamed talk show host he mentioned is, of course, Rush Limbaugh, and Limbaugh responded on his radio show today.

He mockingly declared, “We have just learned that I, your host, am the reason the Republican House feels trapped and unable to do what they would really like to do.”

    Sigh…yes Pat….if we could go back to the days of sanitized news from Dan Rather making up stories about George Bush…and trusty left wing reporters like…Brian Williams….

    Limbaugh may be a blow hard….but the nation needs a radical left and right broadcast to keep each other honest.

      I must also say, that I enjoy reading a daily Pat Cunningham post…I am informed, enlightened and better for it…

    Limbaugh burned up the truth-o-meter a long time ago. He’s strictly an entertainer for the low information teabillies.

    If Limbaugh’s pants haven’t caught fire it doesn’t mean he’s factual. The rest of his babbles are false, mostly false or half truth with (at last count) only one that was mostly true. Not a good track record for truthiness.

      Yeah….a good track record would be Hillary Clinton….32 percent lies….and she is the Dem Favorite.
