“I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks.”
To be fair to long-time bloated provocateur of right-wing radio, this comment was made last month. But as Rush is fond of repeatedly telling his audiences, he is completely trustworthy and never wrong. Of course, that is demonstrably false. One of Red’s personal favorites was Rush’s repeated and vociferous claim that the Clinton Tax Bill would “destroy the economy.” Funny how that didn’t work out. Only the Republicans apparently know how to destroy the economy. But Red digresses. More importantly, if you are taking your medical pandemic advice from this purveyor of right-wing propaganda, lies, insults and utter BS, then you are getting what you deserve and you may be “dead right” where you stand. It’s too bad that you are probably taking down others with you.
“I got cussed out by my mom this morning because she’s been dying to meet Pop. She told me today that I better make sure that she gets to meet him.”

“If this election is about how we’re going to fight to get nothing done, then I don’t want any part of it. I don’t want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation. I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. That is a joke. Elect Trump if you want that.”
Red was rummaging through old posts and found this one. Red will give JEB!!!!$$$$? his props when due. The dude could not have been more prescient.

Sadly, even an attempt at telling the truth seems to have fallen out of fashion.
“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.”
Donald Trump on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS mass shooting.
Red really believes that Trump really believes that he really believes that he would be heroic if only given the chance. Like on 911, when he sat in the comfort of Trump Tower gloating that he now had the tallest building in New York after the World Trade Center towers fell. Now that was some heroism.
“I can’t imagine a more transparent and open process than put it on the internet, invite people’s comments and discussion, and then have an open amendment process following debate, and then vote.”
Sen. John Cornyn (TP-Texas).
Senator – How about the process where you don’t negotiate a bill in secret closed-door meetings excluding opposition members and even most members of your party, and where you actually hold committee hearings, get input from experts and the public on both sides, have an open debate and not keep it under wraps until days before a supposed vote? How about that process – would that be more transparent and open?
“Donald Trump is the kind of guy who would tell you he is ambidextrous because he picks his nose with his left hand.”
Red from Texas
As usual, Red has it right.
“He’s nothing but a bullshitter.”
Attributed to Barack Obama speaking of President Donald Trump.
How could any self-respecting real estate developer credibly deny that. It’s in the job description – “Must have line of excellent bullshit from here until next Tuesday.” A real estate developer without bullshit is like an artist without a canvas, a hitter without a bat, a taxi driver without a steering wheel, a teacher without a blackboard, a . . . well you get the picture.
“Doing stuff is overrated. Like Hitler. He did a lot. But don’t we all wish he woulda just stayed home and gotten stoned?”

“I’m anti-Obama, but I don’t think they are coming to take our guns away. I’m a whole lot more worried about the UN coming in and taking over the Alamo than I am about the federal government coming in and taking my guns away.”
