Certain annoying parts of the Internet have been concerned with one topic exclusively this week, and it’s Rush Limbaugh. “Good for them.” Something about how he ranted about the fecklessness of the Republican minority leadership in Congress, and Obama told the Republicans to ignore that asshole, and Limbaugh responded that if they want to marry Obama so much then they’re welcome to, but it wouldn’t be a REAL AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE course of action.
And then yesterday, one Republican Congressman — Phil Gingrey from Georgia — offered a full several sentences of harsh criticism of that idiot Limbaugh, which one simply musn’t do. An enraged mob of Bitters decided to destroy Gingrey as a result, and now Gingrey has apologized entirely, to Rush Limbaugh, in one of the more pathetic political displays the entire day.
Here’s what Gingrey told dumb Politico yesterday:
I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.
These remarks made Gingrey the greatest legislator ever for a little while yesterday on the communist liberal blogs. It also won him the hatred of every mouth-breather in America, who seem to have called his office to yell about nothing in high volume. Gingrey’s district is a large chunk of northwestern Georgia, reaching Alabama, with Tennessee not far to the north. You know what they do to liberals there? Eat them, right after sexin’ them in the woods.
His only option for survival was to beg fat Rush Limbaugh for personal forgiveness today, on Rush’s show, like a rat:
GINGREY: Rush, thank you so much. I thank you for the opportunity, of course this is not exactly the way to I wanted to come on. … Mainly, I want to express to you and all your listeners my very sincere regret for those comments I made yesterday to Politico. … I clearly ended up putting my foot in my mouth on some of those comments. … I regret those stupid comments.
LIMBAUGH: Well, look, I appreciate that. … I’m glad that you called.
Rumor has it that Gingrey is literally inside Rush Limbaugh’s pants, right now.
