    . You edited the statement. Unfreaking real ED. He says he's out of there because he WILL lose power.

    "Look, the program has to go on. I can sit here and say, “You know what, I’m gonna stay, I’m gonna ride this out.” And I would if it weren’t for the fact that we’re gonna lose electricity. If we lose electricity, then there’s no way we can get the show done outta here. What are you laughing at in there? You think I’m making this up? I’m just telling you that we have a generator, but I don’t want to give away how it’s fueled. That’s a security breach.

    But there are just too many variables when I could go someplace and have no concerns."

    From the transcript of the show itself.

    I haven't heard Rush spreading hatred about anybody. Telling the truth about the big O failure is not hate.

    NO, he was not right.

    Millions are without water, food, electricity.
    Millions have lost everything they had.

    The responsible thing would have been for him to admit he doesn't know everything and that people should believe the worst, prepare for the worst and then celebrate it they had over-prepared.

    That's the wise thing to do in any situation. Why was this any different?

    And notice that while he was telling people to stay in their homes, slime bucket lush said what edthecynic quoted.

    RUSH: Look, the program has to go on. I can sit here and say, “You know what, I’m gonna stay, I’m gonna ride this out.”

    And then he hot footed it out of there.

    HOW can any of you defend that?

    OTOH, I suppose I could take the RWNJ position and say that anyone who is stupid enough to be listening to the lush wouldn't be able to pour pee out of their shoe if the instructions were written on the sole.

    edthecynic

    And, in fact, the meteorologists were right to tell people to get out of the way of that storm.

    How can anyone defend lush or anyone else telling people to ignore the pros?

    Stupid stupid stupid people.

    "Most popular AM Radio host"

    Fascinating! And who is the most popular horse and buggy pilot? How about, the most popular milkman?

    And Ed lied by not quoting Rush entirely. Rush said he would be leaving. RIGHT IN THE TRANSCRIPT. Rush never told anyone to stay in their homes you fool.

    Man oh man how many lies can you left wingers crank out in a day?

    He never said to ignore anyone. Stop lying. Oh that's right. You can't because you're a left wing nutbar.

    And he's held that title since the 90's. Others in the industry would die for his numbers.

    I'm sure they would. By the way, Kanye routinely hits #1. And millions of people think having pot bellies and stick legs in tight shirts and skinny jeans looks awesome. So you'll have to understand if I don't exactly sit here in awe that a few million people listen to the fat liar.

    He doesn't lie. He doesn't have to. I really don't give a flying fuck if you don't listen to him. And I'm certain Rush doesn't either.
