I invested the time to read John Kass's Sunday eulogy to Rush Limbaugh. Kass marveled at Limbaugh's 'talent” and influence while lamenting the void his death left in conservatism's 'heart.”
Kass had the unmitigated chutzpah to harrumph about 'liberals” gloating over the great bloviator's passing. No mention, of course, that Limbaugh celebrated the deaths of gays during the worst period of the AIDS epidemic. Nor did Kass mention Limbaugh's indefensible demand that Sandra Fluke provide him videos of her sex life, since Limbaugh thought he was paying for her contraceptives.
Somehow, Kass forgot about Limbaugh singing 'Barack the Magic Negro,” or how he manipulated the video of Rodney King being beaten to claim King 'lunged” at the cops who were beating him, or his invention of the slur 'feminazi.”
If Limbaugh appealed to the 'conservative heart,” then, like the Grinch's, that heart is two sizes too small. It can only express fear, hatred, and resentment.
