El Rushbo's New Car Gets 8 MPG
RUSH: Fastest three hours in media, and I hope it really is. I'm getting a new car after the program. Eight miles to the gallon. I can't wait to get in the thing and find a Prius and give 'em an anal exam with my front bumper. He-he-he-he-he-he-he.
Is Obama Got Osama Day a National Holiday?
RUSH: I always have these Monday holidays that the staff doesn't tell me about because I'm not focused on vacation days or holidays. I'm one of those people that doesn't first ask about those things. And so I'll show up here on a Monday holiday not knowing it's a holiday. Is Monday or Tuesday next week a national holiday? Well, I know Tuesday's May Day, it's a big commie day, but it's also the anniversary of when Osama was done in by Obama. And it's an election year, and has somebody made that a national holiday that I don't know about?
Woman Dies on Sunlight Diet
RUSH: A Swiss newspaper is reporting that a woman starved to death after embarking -- this is liberalism, folks, by the way, the predicate here is this is liberalism. "Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger reports that a woman starved to death after embarking on a spiritual diet that required her to stop eating or drinking and live off sunlight alone." Somebody got hold of her and said that food will kill her. Somebody convinced her -- probably not somebody; probably a decade worth of news reports about this food will kill you; that food will make you more prone to cancer; this food will make you more prone to leukemia; this food will make you more prone to kidney disease or whatever, so she probably got scared to eat anything.
Then she heard about all the good vibes from vitamin D and sunlight. Then she was told that drinking too much, that could be bad for you. So this woman, believing all this liberal garbage and then getting involved in spiritualism, stopped eating, stopped drinking, lived off of sunlight alone, but not for long. "The Zurich newspaper reported Wednesday that the unnamed Swiss woman in her fifties decided to follow the radical fast in 2010 after viewing an Austrian documentary about an Indian guru who claims to have lived this way for 70 years."
Now, this would not be the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi did eat, and he meditated, had cosmic consciousness. He drank, he did all that stuff. So it wasn't the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, nor was it the Maha Rushie. "There have been similar cases of self-starvation in Germany, Britain and Australia. The prosecutors' office in the Swiss canton (state) of Aargau confirmed Wednesday that the woman died in January 2011 in the town of Wolfhalden in eastern Switzerland," trying to live off of sunlight alone. This is liberalism. "Come on, Mr. Limbaugh, do you have to blame everything on liberalism?" That's probably more close to being true than it is not, Mr. New Castrati.
NPR: Is Slow Growth Good for the Economy?
RUSH: Earlier today -- I saw this, I meant to mention this -- earlier today there was a headline at NPR.com: "Is Slow Growth Actually Good for the Economy?" I kid you not. It's like in the nineties during Clinton, "Is lying actually helpful for a society?" So now in the middle of Obama's disaster economy: "Is Slow Growth Actually Good for the Economy?" They've now changed the headline, but not the way you might think. They changed "slow growth" now to "moderate growth." Kid you not. "Is Moderate Growth Actually Good for the Economy?" Yeah, they realized their mistake. Slow growth, that's putting the economy down. Moderate growth, good for the economy. How about this: "Is Rapid Economic Growth Bad for the Economy?" Why don't you do a report on that, NPR? Is rapid economic growth actually bad for the economy?
More Obama Fundraisers
RUSH: President Obama is scheduled to do two more campaign fundraisers later today disguised as policy statements. One of them is a $40,000-a-plate dinner. One thing you could do is you could follow in Michelle Obama's footsteps and get a no-show job at a hospital for 300 grand a year. That will help you pay off your student loans.
