Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

01/31/2005: Wrapping My Mind Around Rush Limbaugh

My ultra-Right wing, Rush Limbaugh & Bill O'Reilly fan club member, Conservative card-carrying GOP affiliate, Bush-wacked, golden-oldie father is always trying to get me to follow Rush Limbaugh...a little more closely (as if "never listen to him and never intend to" qualifies as listening closely.)

But...perhaps it's time for my father to listen a little more "closely" himself, to what John Fund (WSJ) refers to as the release of conservative ire at the administration in this piece he calls Rush for The Border. Fund writes:

"...conservatives bottled up their frustrations over some of President Bush's policies. Then they muted their criticism during the presidential campaign. But now it is spilling out in all directions--and the White House had better pay attention."

What I find mostly hard to "wrap my mind around" is Rush Limbaugh dating Daryn Kagan (CNN) who were an "item" during the 2004 election...anything else Limbaugh says just can't penetrate beyond that "surprise tidbit" of celebrity trivia.

Rush has really taken off on illegal immigratrion since the inaugural. He takes great pains to distinguish between open, legal immigration, which he's fine with, and porous-border illegals.

You could tell before the election that he was holding back on a lot of things just to support the President.
