RUSH: Do you remember my great line yesterday about Dede Scozzafava? The libs are outraged by it and Owens in New York-23 has come out to defend Dede Scozzafava against this brazen personal attack launched by me and all I said was — I think it was a fabulous line. I mean, I like the line so much I’m going to repeat it for you. I accused her of bestiality, screwed every RINO in the country. The play on words there is RINO, Republican-in-name-only. By screwed I meant she just gave them the shaft, she just showed the world what RINOs are. They think I was actually accusing her of bestiality. Here’s a montage of liberals offended by it.
MATTHEWS: Bestiality is an interesting reference point. She, quote, ‘has screwed every rhino in the country.’ That is a metaphor from hell.
ROBINSON: Very bizarre. And we don’t want to psychoanalyze that.
SANCHEZ: I’m not going to say it. Let Rush Limbaugh say it.
RUSH: And they’re in a tizzy and what’s happened now is that Owens has come out and issued a statement defending Dede Scozzafava against this outrageous personal attack launched by me. Now, Dede Scozzafava is a liberal woman. I thought she could take care of herself. Why do these wimp liberal guys have to come out and start defending these women? What happened to feminism in this country? I mean, why did she quit in the first place? That’s not what feminism taught women to do. Anyway, here is my prediction. (interruption) Can’t be serious about what? Yeah, they did. Oh, they did. Snerdley, ’cause I said it. I knew it was going to be the Media Tweak of the Day when I said it. I wish I could find this damn thing. I’ve got 13 stacks of paper here and I don’t know where I put what. You know, here I am one of the most advanced computer guys in the world, and I still print this stuff out ’cause there’s no way I could do this on the computer. I can’t put all this stuff on one monitor. But I’ll find it. Maybe I was looking at the wrong stack. (interruption) Stack czar? Maybe I need a stack czar.
Here it is. Here it is. Here it is. ”Owens: Limbaugh’s Attack On Scozzafava ‘Offends Me Personally’ And ‘Exemplifies Exactly What’s Wrong With Hoffman” — Democratic NY-23 candidate Bill Owens is jumping to the defense of Dede Scozzafava, his Republican former rival who dropped out of the race and endorsed him against Conservative Doug Hoffman, following an attack on her by Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh declared today that Scozzafava was ‘guilty of widespread bestiality. She has screwed every RINO in the country.” (laughing) They have no sense of humor, folks. That’s the problem here. They have zero sense of humor. That’s just the opening line of a brilliant analysis of how Dede Scozzafava, supposedly a moderate Republican, has come out and shown the country who RINOs really are. At the end of the day they’re liberal Democrats, and that’s why I say that’s how she screwed every RINO ’cause now the secret’s out. You know, the genie is out of the bottle. These guys, these Republicans-in-name-only are not Republican and they’re not moderates. They’re liberals.
Here’s Owens’ statement: ‘This despicable attack on Assemblywoman Scozzafava offends me personally and exemplifies exactly what’s wrong with Hoffman and his right wing backers. Assemblywoman Scozzafava is an honorable public servant who has served Upstate New York as an independent and principled leader who always prioritized the best interests of Upstate New York ahead of a partisan agenda.’ Which is BS. ‘Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the right-wing special interests that are running Hoffman’s campaign can’t even begin to compete with what she has accomplished over her career. … Doug Hoffman ought to denounce Limbaugh immediately.’ That’s Owens. She can’t speak up for herself I guess. More liberal wimps. Let’s see, I’ve got maybe a couple other examples of this. So every day when I think I’m offering brilliant analysis and commentary, unheard anywhere else but this show I find the next day that the liberals are in a brand-new tizzy because they haven’t the intelligence or the sense of humor to understand the slightest thing that I say.
RUSH: You know, I was just thinking about something here, folks. Why would somebody be ‘personally offended’ — personally offended — by bestiality? Unless they have some personal experience with it, how could you be ‘personally offended’ by that? And, you know, ladies and gentlemen, I think I understand why these people are all upset and out of whack. It’s because any jokes or cracks about bestiality are probably a hate crime now. Isn’t bestiality protected in the defense bill, hate crime laws? (laughing)
