O'Donnell on Limbaugh: WWJD

Following on from my musings last Sunday on the inherently contradictory commingling of the far Right's Objectivist and religious fundamentalist wings comes the following segment from last night's episode of Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell. In it, the MSNBC host lays into ever-bloated, ever-bloviating Right Wing shill Rush Limbaugh in response to comments from El Rushbo earlier in the day attempting to divine Jesus's views on our tax code (and make himself feel better, no doubt, for wanting to step all over the downtrodden).

This is one of the reasons I've come to really enjoy O'Donnell's commentaries of late. He doesn't have the bombast that characterized his timeslot's former occupant Keith Olbermann (whose return to Countdown -- now on Current TV -- has just been announced, by the way), but I think ultimately that's a good thing. He has no less passion, and is no less eloquent, and in some ways is even more effective at getting his point across than Olbermann had been. Vids like this are why:

Wow, the Blush LimpBlah is now a reverend, he can take his place next to the other flakes like Jim Jones, Jim Baker, Jimmy Swaggart, (all silly jimmy’s), Ted Haggard, Oral Roberts, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Franklin Gramham (son of Billy), John Hagee, and we can’t forget the rev. Mike Huckabee. Maybe LimpBlah next sermon will be about the scripture “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and give to God what is God’s”, found in the good book. But alas we probably hear more or the same lies that we heard today. He is such a windbag.
