"Big Fat Idiot" Ain't the Half of It!

    You absolute horror of a human being.

Rush Limbaugh sought new depths to sink to yesterday when he accused Michael J. Fox of faking Parkinson's disease. The Washington Post story by reporter David Montgomery begins this way:

Possibly worse than making fun of someone's disability is saying that it's imaginary. That is not to mock someone's body, but to challenge a person's guts, integrity, sanity.

That showed some pretty impressive restraint. I guess, "Could Limbaugh be any more of an asshole?" wouldn't have made it past the editor.

Update: My hero Keith Olbermann voted Rush Monday's Worst Person in the World.

I was thinking of another quote, this one from Animal House:

"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."

Except I guess for Limbaugh we have to change it from "drunk" to "stoned."
