Rush Limbaugh is just an entertainer, right? People shouldn't really listen to what he has to say, he's just filling the air with little nuggets of thought for us to chew on during long commutes or hours at our desks. Well, he may just be an entertainer, but he's also an irresponsible loud mouth who should be held to account when he says vile, hateful things like he did yesterday, when he said that the timing of the BP Deepwater disaster is suspicious and that maybe, just maybe, environmentalists are behind it. Says, Rush, via MotherJones:
I want to get back to the timing of the blowing up, the explosion out there in the Gulf of Mexico of this oil rig. ... Now, lest we forget, ladies and gentlemen, the carbon tax bill, cap and trade, that was scheduled to be announced on Earth Day. I remember that. And then it was postponed for a couple of days later after Earth Day, and then of course immigration has now moved in front of it. But this bill, the cap-and-trade bill, was strongly criticized by hardcore environmentalist wackos because it supposedly allowed more offshore drilling and nuclear plants, nuclear plant investment. So, since they're sending SWAT teams down there, folks, since they're sending SWAT teams to inspect the other rigs, what better way to head off more oil drilling, nuclear plants, than by blowing up a rig? I'm just noting the timing here.
