Two Tons O'Fun

Why is Rob Ford still mayor of Toronto? Why is Rush Limbaugh still on the air? Obviously, Ford is still has support in Toronto because a number of brain dead conservative racists would elect a demented gerbil if they thought it would save them a buck and protect them from the massing hordes of the multi ethnic non white femi-Nazi youth threat that wants to take their stuff that they have spent so much energy on stealing from every one else...or something like that...same logic goes for Rush...Obvioulsy he has enough support of the brain dead unconscious dumb downed drugged and drunken aging semi masculine masses of flab who listen and identify with him as they burn uncontrolled amounts of fossil fuels and emit hydrocarbonic pollution into the atmosphere as they tool about on the highways of America free from the annoying static of having to deal with their personal lives.  Personally, I think he's been back sliding and doing those viagra/oxycontin highballs again: Limbaugh Compares Filibuster Reform To Vote "Allow[ing] Women To Be Raped" :
From the November 22 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:

LIMBAUGH: Let's forget the Senate for a minute. Let's say, let's take 10 people in a room and they're a group. And the room is made up of six men and four women. OK? The group has a rule that the men cannot rape the women. The group also has a rule that says any rule that will be changed must require six votes, of the 10, to change the rule. Every now and then, some lunatic in the group proposes to change the rule to allow women to be raped. But they never were able to get six votes for it. There were always the four women voting against it and they always found two guys.
Well, the guy that kept proposing that women be raped finally got tired of it, and he was in the majority and he was one that [said], 'You know what? We're going to change the rule. Now all we need is five." And well, 'you can't do that.' 'Yes we are. We're the majority. We're changing the rule.' And then they vote. Can the women be raped? Well, all it would take then is half of the room. You can change the rule to say three. You can change the rule to say three people want it, it's going to happen. There's no rule. When the majority can change the rules there aren't any.

Rush really only wanted an excuse to talk about raping women. I found these comments
 from Steve Benen quite enlightening:
I know he isn't on Fox anymore, but I couldn't resist reposting
this little photoshop piece from a few years back

OK, let’s calmly review some basic truths that are worth remembering.
First, while Limbaugh now believes only a “lunatic” would propose changing Senate rules on a majority vote, Limbaugh
believed the exact opposite when the Senate was controlled by Republicans in the Bush era.
Second, as a factual matter, before this week, the Senate changed the chamber’s rules with a simple majority-rule vote
18 times. It’s unusual, but it’s not that unusual. Besides, in this case, the change only restored the previous norm that existed for generations.
And finally, if you’re the type of person who feels comfortable comparing Senate confirmation votes on non-controversial judicial nominees to rape, perhaps communicating regularly with the public is a poor career choice.

That would be the understatement of the year when it comes to this clown.
