As parties go, the Sequester Soul Train was, apparently, a humdinger. There was Obama and family singing and nodding along to Justin Timberlake doing his rendition of Otis Redding's "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay." While millions of Americans are living on the dock of the bay watching their jobs roll away.
RUSH: We, ladies and gentlemen, because we're on the cutting edge here for low-information voters and citizens, have a couple of sound bites -- excerpts, if you will -- of Mr. Z's latest rap offering. In one of these bites, Mr. Z refers to the president...
RUSH: I'm too literal. As the mayor of Realville, I take this stuff literally, and all the symbolism? Eh, I'm not for all that... What really irritates me about it is, if I'm interpreting Mrs. Obama correctly, one of the things she's saying is, "This country is so bad.

RUSH: Foreign Policy magazine, they fashion themselves as a serious bunch of people there, think tankers and that. The editor of Foreign Policy, David Rothkopf, says that Mitch McConnell is a bigger threat to the United States than Kim Jong-un. I'm telling you, I can't keep up!

So you have a senator from Massachusetts actually complaining about the chained CPI and the way it will limit increases because her brother lives on 13 grand, while she and her husband have multiple millions of dollars.
RUSH: So Huma talked to Hillary and basically what they figured out, "Well, look, all men are pigs. Are you gonna stick with the one you got or do you want to start all over with a new pig, 'cause they're all the same and they're all gonna end up treating you the same way. So, Huma, go ask Hillary what to do, because there's an expert on this."
RUSH: They're going to great lengths to have everybody understand that they didn't wiretap that office. They're doing everything they can to make sure that people understand that and they understand that McConnell and the boys were saying some really tasteless, offensive, and tacky things. Which they weren't.
CALLER: My son called you because he asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I said, "To speak to Rush Limbaugh!" And he got through! I can't believe it!
