Regardless of Whether Clark Said it, The Truth Is That Limbaugh is Full of Shit

On Rush Limbaugh’s radio show on Thursday, Limbaugh cited a post on the Democratic Underground website by someone who claims that he met Clark at a campaign event and that when asked about Limbaugh and others who were going after him, Clark allegedly said, “Limbaugh's full of shit" (Limbaugh said “full of bleep” for the benefit of his radio audience). Also, according to the poster, Clark “said that he is not going to sink to their level. He said that he needs us to call the radio stations and do what needs to be done.”

Whether Clark said these things, I know not; one thing I know: Limbaugh is full of shit. If Limbaugh wants to press Clark on this, I think it would be a good thing, because Clark’s team should have plenty of ammo. It would be like shooting fish in a barrel. For one thing, we can start with Limbaugh’s recent unfair attacks on Clark (scroll down for my posts from the last two weeks). Also, they could bring up the racist things that Limbaugh has said. Clark’s team can bring up Limbaugh’s embrace of Richard Mellon Scaife’s wild conspiracy theories (see addendum). Clark’s team can bring up Limbaugh’s various distortions and unfair attacks.(also, click here). That Limbaugh is an accomplished bullshit artist is beyond dispute.

As for the unconfirmed allegation that Clark told people “to call the radio stations and do what needs to be done,” Limbaugh’s characterization of this was to suggest that Clark was either telling his supporters to put pressure on radio stations not to carry Limbaugh’s show or to call Limbaugh’s program and challenge Limbaugh on the facts; Limbaugh bellowed: “Clark is looking at this like bombing from 15,000 feet. He doesn’t want to incur any damage, so he’s going to have his minions go in there and do the groundwork. So his minions have to call the radio stations—this could also mean calling the program and either arguing with me about Clark, pumping him up...” That’s not a bad idea to call up and challenge Limbaugh on the facts. Even though Limbaugh has a huge homefield advantage (e.g., the mute button), I’ve had a good time taking him on. Also priceless is the supporter of John Kerry who set the record straight about the way Limbaugh used his butt to keep his butt out of Vietnam. Limbaugh is a paper tiger when he’s up against someone armed with the facts. Bring ‘em on!

Addendum: Especially during Bill Clinton’s presidency, Limbaugh extensively used many of Scaife’s conspiracy theories. He often cited two of Scaife’s paid operatives, Chris Ruddy and Joseph Farah (Farah helped write Limbaugh’s book, See I Told You So). However, I want to make a distinction; although Limbaugh used Scaife’s paranoid conspiracy theories that Clintons were responsible for bumping off people who got in their way, unlike Ruddy or Farah, I don't believe Limbaugh was controlled by Scaife. Limbaugh didn’t need to be. He didn’t need Scaife’s largesse; he has advertisers who depend on radio listeners who believe in the magical healing powers of emu oil (Blue Emu is one of Limbaugh’s sponsors) or who want to get prescriptions for Viagra “over the phone.” One final thought: why is it no surprise to me that another Limbaugh sponsor, Enzyte aims its ads at men who are insecure about “size and response”?

9/26 UPDATE: 9:55 AM PST Limbaugh just told his radio audience that an "abnormally high" number of people connected to the Clintons were killed under mysterious circumstances and suggested that the Democratic presidential contenders are also aware of this "fact" and don't want to anger the Clintons. Limbaugh used the CBC conspiracy to explain why candidates like Dean and Kerry were not going after Clark, whom Limbaugh portrays as the stooge in a scheme by the Clinton "cabal." Limbaugh said: "How many people do you know that have suddenly -- how do I say this -- died? Not very many, I would think. But, with the Clintons, quite a few." (thanks to Snellius of DU for the quote.) Limbaugh just recited a core Scaife and Freeper staple, the notorious urban legend The Clinton Body Count.
9/26 UPDATE: 10:20 AM PST: Limbaugh reiterated the Clinton Body Count and how this is why allegedly the Democratic presidental candidates are afraid of the Clintons: "Howard Dean, John Kerry [are] afraid to go after the Clintons and that's understandable, given the history of what people who have crossed the Clintons have had happen to them." Can anyone dispute the assertion that Limbaugh is full of shit?
