Another guy gets up and it’s a long fly ball to Stalin. Why? I don’t know.

After so many years maybe Rush Limbaugh has run out of targets to debase and ridicule. Or maybe his audience has abandoned him so thoroughly that he’s become gun-shy, and he’s no longer comfortable being the asshole he once was. This sort of talk is not exactly what we’ve come to expect from him:

We’re all sitting here wondering, “Have we lost the country?” You know, are…? Let me just be blunt.

Rushbo, stunned. Confused. Left to ponder his own thoughts. The Trump candidacy is going into the tank and he has no idea what to do.

We all ask ourselves, “Are those of us who think the way we do in the minority? Are people who don’t think and believe the way we do now in the majority?” We’re asking ourselves this and we’re waiting for elections to kind of tell us.

Who is there to shame or blame? Well there’s Trump, of course, it’s certainly his fault but let’s not be silly…

…and what was Trump’s response? Trump’s response to me was perfectly reasonable.

His post-massacre calls for immigration bans on Muslims and Glocks for everyone belly-to-the-bar were a perfectly reasonable response, sure. I’ll give you that, pal, but you want to take another stab at telling us what’s going on here?

If you dig deep and find out how young people have been educated in this country, essentially the textbook’s written by a guy named Howard Zinn… We’ve gotten to the point that 2-1/2 generations alive today having been raised having been taught what a rotten place this country is, how it was founded in a totally unjust and immoral way, and that it was not about liberty and freedom. It’s not about any of the things that people think this country is about. That’s just a myth that the propagandists pushed.

Okay! It was a BU professor, in the library, with an alternative history. Who knew that the 70% of Americans who currently think Donald is a racist dick-swinging pinhead are also Howard Zinn fans? Those 50 dog-eared copies of People’s History sure do get around.

This is what young people have been taught for two generations in grade school, junior high.

Howard Zinn. Z-I-N-N. Look it up.

Yes, look ‘it’ up. Speaking of alternatives it could also be true that Rush’s schtick of camping out to the right of the GOP’s presidential nominee and engaging in pot-shotting, saber-rattling and dog-whistling to fire up the feral base won’t play in 2016. Donald the amateur may have pushed the routine past the bounds of propriety and ignited a voter backlash. It may be the case that Trump stole Limbaugh’s thunder without knowing his show was pretty much over.
