Rush Limbaugh's epistomology
http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/01/how-rush-limbaugh-decides-what-is-true/283078/

A comparison of how Limbaugh decided to defend Clarence Thomas in spite of not knowing anything about him (Thomas is a "true conservative") but is disappointed that Republicans are including a caveat about whether Christie lied.

Here's the money quote from Limbaugh: " Now, if there were a fervent ideological foundation, if there was a substantive reason of believing in Governor Christie, then whether he lied wouldn't matter. They'd be out there defending him left and right just to make sure the Democrats don't get away with this."

Limbaugh's mere existence depresses me a lot less than the fact that he's popular.

Now, that's a money quote.

Honesty been taking a back seat in politics a long time. I don't even listen to official statements from politicians of either party anymore. It's all filtered through PR people.

This kind of thing is why I proposed the panel on political discourse for Conjecture. I've never actually seen or listened to Limbaugh, but I have the impression he's a perfect model of what I think of as the rhetorical mode.

Okay, my eyes are tired; I just read that as Rush Limbaugh's episiotomy.
