I'm gonna have to stop watching the news.  It just gets crazier every day.  Two examples.

Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who held a news conference to report that his investigation has shown that President Barack Obama's birth certificate is phony.

Sheesh!  Even Donald Trump gave up on that.  Why is a county sheriff in Arizona investigating the birth certificate of the President of the United States any way?  Because he's a publicity hog, that's why.

And then there's this cretin.

The increasingly disgusting Rush Limbaugh, who said that a young woman who was denied the right to testify before a Congressional committee is a "slut", a "whore" and a "prostitute".  The young woman in question wanted to testify that employers should be required to cover birth control pills in their company healthcare programs.  Limbaugh further suggested that such women should provide videos of their sexual activity in return.

This goes beyond the pale.

Joe Arpaio and Rush Limbaugh are creatures cut from the same diseased cloth.

I can't express strongly enough how much disgust I have for both of them.

Don't know much about Sheriff Joe, but I CAN'T STAND Rush Limbaugh. He is such a narcissist! I listened to him a couple of times years ago and decided that was 2 hours of my life wasted.

Both of these men are horrible. Rush is a hate monger and the sheriff is a blowhard racist who uses his power and celebrity to terrorize the innocent.

Well, Stephen already said exactly what I was going to say! I don't ever listen to Rush and if I go into a business that has him on the sound system, I turn right around and RUSH out of the place and I don't go back.

Agree agree agree - with all of you!

I couldn't agree more! The scariest part is all those people who believe everything these two cretins say.

Seal Team Six--your next target is Rush!!!
I didn't think a fungus could last as long as he has!

I love your banner with the tulips... :-))

The news will brainwash one if it can. Not worth watching. You have to be selective about what you watch.

I think Rush has lost his relevance. Most just now shake their head and move on when he is mentioned.
