    In an unusually stupid move today, I decided to tune into AM radio, and what should come on but Rush Limbaugh.

    After listening to the first ten minutes of his show, I started to realize why viewers of Glenn Beck didn't think Beck was "that bad". It is simply because they compare him to Limbaugh.

    In those 10 minutes, Mr Limbaugh verifiably lied 6 times, including, but not limited to:

    • Blaming Barack Obama for the Housing Crisis
    • Blaming Barack Obama for all of the country's unemployment, and
    • Blaming Barack Obama for the failure of the automotive industry.

    While spouting this obscene listing of revisionist historical data, he claimed that the media was "state controlled" (one assumes he means all media but FoxNews and the stations his show actually plays on), and that the counutry is now in an economic "Depression".

    And, again, that was ALL in the first 10 minutes of his show.

    In other words, to quote Senator Al Franken, "Rush Limbaugh is a big, fat liar".

    Provide a show transcript that details your claims.

    YOU are a big fat liar. I've been listening all day... he never made any such claims.

    Now let's look at these liew, point by point, shall we?

    Firstly, the unemployment data.

    Rush stated "under the Bush administration, unemployment was 5.0%", citing figures from April of 2008.

    What he neglected to mention was that by Obama's first month in office, February of 2009, unemployment had already reached 8.1%.

    This is a lie, specifically a lie of omission.

    How would I possibly do that? The show's not over yet.

    Then apparently you're not listening to the same show. Did you miss the first ten minutes?

    Nope, just a member. Rush, on the other hand, truly IS the face of the Republican Party.

    Fat, old, bald, liars.

    Three good words to describe Limbaugh. He isn't even worth the energy it would take to get upset with him anymore.

    He's pathetic.
