Sally, at White Courtesy Telephone, riffs on a Rush Limbaugh's recent $2.1 million fundraising coup. What Limbaugh auctioned off for charity was a letter signed by 41 Democratic Senators rebuking him for his remark that soldiers who protest the war in Iraq are "phony soldiers." When in the human body the lower rules the higher what comes through the mouth is stench. When in the body politic the lower rules the higher we have Rush Limbaugh. As Karl Kraus wrote in Vienna, in the 1930's, "The secret of the demagogue is to make himself as stupid as his audience so that they believe they are as clever as he. " Still, Rush is a rich man. I would love to get him as a Moral Tutorial client. As his Homme de Confiance, I will help him pass on his family values in a Dynasty to last one thousand years.
And maybe he'd share his meds.

Apparently Goering had a similar problem.
