all I want is a shady lane

Jerry Uelsmann, Homage to Duchamp, 2000

* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

"5. Rush Limbaugh

"Speaking of empathy: Who's looking out for the little guy? Why, Rush Limbaugh of course! Just listen to his radio show for five minutes and you'll hear all about the doom and destruction about to be visited upon you by the liberal powers that be. Rush is the only man who can save you!

"And if you believe that, you must be a dittohead. Last week Rush Limbaugh was caught on tape giving a speech to fat-cat right-wing millionaires - and what he had to say ain't pretty.

"LIMBAUGH: 'But during all this growth I haven't lost any audience. I've never had financially a down year. There's supposedly a recession, but we've got - what is this May? Back in February we already had 102% of 2008 overbooked for 2009. (applause) So I always believed that if we’re going to have a recession, just don't participate.' (laughter)

"Well isn't that nice. As Think Progress points out, Limbaugh's employer Clear Channel Communications - with whom he has a $400 million contract - has had to lay off almost 3,000 employees since the beginning of the year.

"It's a shame those folks couldn't choose to not participate in the recession. Oh well. At least Rush Limbaugh is still stinking rich!"
