Like many of you, because of Friday’s afternoon events, I was eagerly awaiting today’s Rush Limbaugh Show. This was going to be the Super Bowl of spin and schadenfreude.
Sadly, it was not to be, as Rush is off for the week, and he had some c-list yakker in his place (and again, I am simply amazed at how deep the wingnut bench is in talk radio). The show was almost complete Palin, with the usual nonsense hauled out left and right (liberals hater her because she lives a pro-life life, etc.), but things took a turn for the weird in the third hour when the Michael Jackson funeral came up as a subject. The fill-in blabber mouth then stated (and I’m paraphrasing, because I was tying tomato plants and weeding and had nothing to write on):
“I bet 95% of the people going to the Jackson funeral are the ones taking potshots at Palin.”
What does that even mean? We’ve talked over and over again how the wingnut conversation is now nothing but disjointed imagery and codespeak that only they understand (I believe DougJ referred to it as a wingnut version of Pale Fire), but that to me is a masterpiece. I’m someone who not only trafficked wingnut talking points at one time, but to this day keep up on all of them, and I simply can’t figure out what the hell that means. Beyond being unprovable, it simply makes no sense. Is there a racial component that I am missing? Is this Breitbartian Big Hollyweird four martini lunch nonsense? Have I missed a talking point or something?
