Limbaugh Has Himself a Bush Threesome [UPDATED]

(noon – promoted by ek hornbeck)

All three “public” Bushes called into Rush Limbaugh’s show today, reports the LA Times to congratulate him for 20 years of spewing rightwing noise across America’s airwaves. Just reading the provided transcript is enough to transform weaker stomachs into queasy, vomit catapults.

Here’s some lowlights:

W: Hello!

RUSH: Oh, jeez. The president?

W: Rush Limbaugh?

RUSH: Yes, sir, Mr. President.

W: President George W. Bush calling to congratulate you on 20 years of important and excellent broadcasting.

RUSH: Well, thank you, sir. You’ve stunned me! (laughing) I’m shocked. But thank you so much.

W: That’s hard to do.

RUSH: (laughing) I know, it is.

W: I’m here with a room full of admirers. There are two others that would like to speak to you and congratulate you, people who consider you … friends and really appreciate the contribution you’ve made.

Update below the fold…

Limbaugh tells W to put ’em on, but W gets a little hurt about this being his “swan song” that he doesn’t get more air time. So Limbaugh lets W whine about the meanies in Congress that won’t let his administration destroy last bits of nature to drill for oil and gas.

“What we ought to be doing is encouraging oil companies to find oil, and that’s the best way to take the pressure off the gasoline prices,” W said. Yup, we must encourage oil companies to get off their asses to find oil. After his little song and dance, W hands the phone over to his daddy.

41: Hey, Rush?

RUSH: Mr. President, sir.

41: How are you doing?

RUSH: I am never better. I’m so glad that you three called me. I’m stunned here. It’s great to hear from you.

Apparently Bush the Elder can no longer play golf. So the two exchange some pleasantries about golf and yap about whatever. It’s not important.

<UPDATE>

Well apparently in my revulsion I missed the best worst part. What I glossed over was important after all. Bush the Elder didn’t know he was on the radio. From Think Progress, “Later in their conversation, former President Bush – apparently not realizing he was on the air – asked about ‘our man [Roger] Ailes,’ the president of Fox News.”

41: … Do you see our man Ailes at all?

RUSH: Oh, yeah. I saw Roger at Tony Snow’s funeral… And a couple of times earlier this summer.

41: Are we on the radio, are we?

RUSH: (laughs)

41: I didn’t know that. I’ll clean up my act here. I’m glad they told me.

Hat tip to Think Progress and Scout Finch.

</UPDATE>

But, tell me this doesn’t sound a bit peculiar when taken out of context?

41: (laughing) That’s what I’m doing is giving advice. I remember playing with you and enjoying it. How are you?

RUSH: I’m great.

Bush then says to Limbaugh, “Proud of you, always.” I can only imagine him saying under his breath something like, not like my idiot son George. But anyway, then it’s Jeb’s turn to slather on the praise for Limbaugh. Jeb Bush. Remember that name America. He’s coming at the head of the Republican ticket in 2012 or 2016. See how Jeb is already politicking?

JEB: Hey, Rush, congratulations on your longevity.

RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much. This is a thrill.

JEB: One of the highlights, one of the great things about your show is it’s broadcast in the Sunshine State for which a whole lot of Floridians are very grateful, including me.

RUSH: It’s a great place to live, governor. It really is, as you well know.

JEB: We’ve got a few challenges, but it’s not a bad place at all.

RUSH: What’s your future? What are you going to do?

JEB: I’m staying below the radar. That’s what I’m doing. I love policy, and I have an education policy to try to help folks that are running for office be bold on education reform, which I think is a huge challenge and a great opportunity for our country. So my political stuff is really focused on that, which I love.

RUSH: Well, good. Keep at it, because if there’s something that needs reform in this country, it’s certainly that.

Jeb’s “staying below the radar” because brother W has made brand Bush into a puke. Or, is that the contents of my stomach?

  1. this wasn’t snark?  I followed the link to the LATimes blog…I just can’t believe it’s not snark[insert TM here].

    Well…they all deserve each other.

  2. When ever I hear either the Bush brothers and pappy or Rush the same thoughts come into my mind. Why is this guy allowed on air, followed by why isn’t he behind bars. With the Bush’s it’s why is he still in power and not behind bars. Poppy the devil Dad just short circuits my brain. Off the radar? If only.

    Can’t think of a better description.

    On reflection, that’s too good a description.  Sewer rats don’t consciously do evil.  They’re just trying to get by.

    No, the better description of the shrubs and rush is:  that on which sewer rats dine.

  3. A circle jerk and a Black Mass in one handy satellite delivered package.

    Ill I think I am going to be. Channel Yoda this forces me to.

    Does anyone but me ever wonder how Chrissie Hynde lives with herself?

  4. …a telephone?  Damn, I just lost 20 bucks on a bet.
