RUSH: “A growing body of psychology research shows that incompetence deprives people of the ability to recognize their own incompetence. To put it bluntly, dumb people are too dumb to know it.” It’s a blessing! You know, the worst thing would be to be dumb and to know it — and there’s evidence all over that the dumb do not know they’re dumb. You can see it. You can see it. How do you know the dumb person doesn’t know they’re dumb? What’s the first clue? What is the first clue that a dumb person doesn’t know that he or she is dumb? What is it? Well, you know what it is!
The first clue that a dumb person doesn’t know they’re dumb is they open their mouth. The way they dress. The political party that they join. There’s all kinds of evidence. “Similarly, unfunny people don’t have a good enough sense of humor to tell” they’re not funny. Have you ever been around somebody who thinks they’re funny as hell and they’re not? It’s ’cause they’re too dumb to know that they’re too dumb. This is why banning the ugly, making it voluntary, never worked. The ugly are too dumb to know it, and it’s a blessing.
RUSH: Let’s go to the audio sound bites. Carol Costello, CNN, this morning on CNN’s Newsroom reporting the story about Sandra Fluke and me and the brave congressional testimony. This woman who wants unlimited, no-responsibility, no-consequences sex paid for by you and me, Carol Costello, CNN’s stalker assigned to me. You’ll also hear Suzanne Malveaux in this report.
COSTELLO: Rush Limbaugh blasted a young woman who called birth control a health care issue.
RUSH ARCHIVE: What does it say about the college co-ed Susan (sic) Fluke who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex. What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? Makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.
COSTELLO: See what I mean?
COSTELLO: You’re still reeling from the Rush Limbaugh thing, right.
MALVEAUX: Just — just — it’s all very shocking, I imagine people have very strong opinions about it.
COSTELLO: Big difference, right, birth control, having sex.
RUSH: Yeah. Do you realize they don’t get it? These are the liberal foot soldiers. These are not the leaders. These are the foot soldiers. They don’t see 10% of what I see. It just doesn’t compute at all. We just did a story, Snerdley, on how the stupid don’t know they’re stupid. Snerdley just asked me, “Can they really be this ignorant or dumb?” Yes, to answer your question. They heard every word I said and they are dumbfounded and they are reeling. Big difference, right, birth control, having sex? You don’t need birth control if you’re not having sex. The woman wants unlimited, no-responsibility, no-consequences sex, and she wants it with contraceptives paid for by us. (interruption) Were these kinds of women around when I was in school?
Oh, oh, no, no, no. I didn’t know any Flukes. No. Well, wait. I take it back. Yes. Every school had a couple of ’em. You know, for every 500 students, every school had a couple of these. Now they’re everywhere. That’s what you’re getting at, right? And the two at your school, I mean even with birth control, you wouldn’t go there. That’s the big difference. I mean there were women that you might think you could get a disease, but you didn’t care but — (interruption) No, the two on average back then you wouldn’t get, no. I see what you mean. They were there and they were well known. They were widely known, and so were the greasers that spent time with them. But you didn’t find them in the A&W parking lot on Friday night, let’s just put it that way.
