Rush Limbaugh Is A Fucking Idiot Episode MCLXVII

President Obama is lazy for not working 24/7.

It's not exactly esoteric knowledge that the American right is deranged. Fortunately, I rarely have to put up with this shit IRL...  But I do frequent a few discussion boards (e.g. sports boards) where I run into morons who will actually start spewing spittle every time Obama plays a golf game. Of course such types typically have no regard for the truth whatsoever. And they absolutely, positively cannot be reasoned with...but it's a lot of fun to watch them sputter over the fact that Bush took about four times as many vacation days as Obama at comparable points in their presidencies.

I'm not complaining about the numbers, though...the more time Bush was vacationing, the less time he was governing--if we can call it that...

But, as for the double standard...people like Limbaugh are so blinded by hatred, and so thoroughly irrational, that their words are probably better seen as part of a kind of contentless temper-tantrum than any kind of actual attempt to represent reality.
