Rush Limbaugh weighs in on Nightrunner scandal, and nearly crushes it

I love me some Rush Limbaugh. His radio program adroitly marries the
soothing ambiance of flapping jowl skins with a charmingly ignorant and xenophobic
rhetoric unimpeded by pesky facts, logic, reprisal, or credibility.
Rush isn't one of those lame-stream media pundits who's content with
telling it like it is; no, like a true patriot, he's not happy until
he's told it like it isn't.
This champion of the far Right also has an affinity for Republican
Representative and non-slut birth control oppositionist Michele Bachmann, who recently levied allegations
Islamic extremism against the French-Algerian superhero known as
Nightrunner. Mere war hero and Republican Senator John McCain challenged the
accusations by reminding Bachmann and her Tea Party constituents that
Nightrunner is in fact a fictional character from a comic book.
asked to weigh in on the subject, the ever-chivalrous Limbaugh came to
the aid of Bachmann, saying, "Of course centrists like McCain would
bring up the fact that Nightrunner isn't real! Of course they would harp
on that particular fact!"
The girthy conservative heavy-hitter went on to say, "Sure, they want you to know the 'facts,' but it's all
part of a liberal conspiracy to discredit Michele's non-facts. The Obama
administration is simply trying to distract us from the bogus
backdoor deals they've got going on with these make-believe Muslims.
Before you know it, these pretend profligates will gain access to even the most imaginary inner layers of our government, getting their mythic mitts on our literary launch codes. It's all relatively terrifying."
Ice-T responded on Twitter by saying, "I'm surprised you know the word 'profligate,' you drug-addled dip shit."
***Once again, this is not a real news story, but it might as well be.
