The return of the polar vortex likely means we’re in for more nonsense from Rush Limbaugh

Weather forecasters are warning that America’s heartland is in for an unusually cold snap next week as the dreaded polar vortex makes another unwelcome visit. Ordinarily, the polar vortex is confined to the Arctic, but it occasionally leaks southward and brings especially nippy weather to portions of the United States. This has been happening with greater frequency over the past 15 years, and you might recall that it happened with a vengeance last winter. You might also recall that radio blabber and notorious climate-change denier Rush...

Once again, Limbaugh is proven wrong — not that it will matter to his gullible listeners

Radio blabber Rush Limbaugh, political guru to angry geezers across the land, said this the other day: We are having a record-breaking cold snap in many parts of the country. And right on schedule the media have to come up with a way to make it sound like it’s completely unprecedented. Because they’ve got to find a way to attach this to the global warming agenda, and they have. It’s called the ‘polar vortex.’ The dreaded polar vortex. Do you know what the polar vortex is? Have you ever heard of it? Well, they just created it for this week....

Add the papacy to the list of things about which Rush Limbaugh is ignorant

As I noted HERE the other day, right-wing radio blabber Rush Limbaugh has taken issue with some of the things Pope Francis has been saying lately.

Limbaugh says the pope is peddling Marxism

Why am I not surprised that Rush Limbaugh is taken aback by some of the things Pope Francis has been saying lately? Here’s an excerpt from Limbaugh’s radio show of a few days ago: I mentioned, last night — I was doing show prep last night — usual routine. And I ran across this — I don’t actually know what it’s called — the latest papal offering, statement from Pope Francis. Now, up until this — I’m not Catholic. Up until this, I have to tell you, I was admiring the man. I thought he...

Rush Limbaugh seems not to understand how contraception works

I’ve always figured that right-wing radio blabber Rush Limbaugh isn’t nearly as stupid as he pretends to be. He strikes me as a poseur who plays his vast listening audience of mostly angry old white men for suckers. On the subject of artificial birth control, however,  El Rushbo almost seems sincere in peddling foolishness, as we see HERE: The most obvious example of this came when Limbaugh went after Sandra Fluke, arguing, “The women in her law school program are having so much sex, they are going broke buying birth control...
