Sarah Palin Calls Limbaugh One of Her “Heroes,” Claims He Helps Make the United States “Exceptional”

palin-limbaughOne of the more unfortunate aspects of my job is having to follow people on Twitter and Facebook that I absolutely can’t stand.  The same goes for watching Fox News.  I’m convinced the career path I’ve chosen will ultimately take years off my life.

One of those reprehensible individuals that I follow is none other than Sarah Palin.  Speaking of Sarah Palin, am I the only one who wonders if John McCain sits at home sometimes just thinking to himself, “What in the hell was I thinking introducing this moron to the national spotlight?”

I really do believe that he does.

But moving on.

Today while I was scrolling through my Twitter feed, I ran across a Tweet from Palin that sent me to a picture on her Facebook account of her and Rush Limbaugh taken at what appears to be some kind of book signing event in Florida.

Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh in the same room together—just let that roll around your head for a while.

Well, below this picture was a caption where she called Rush Limbaugh one of her “heroes.”  Seriously.  Rush Limbaugh, a hero?  A drug addicted, sexist, womanizing, racist, bigoted adulterer—is apparently a “hero” to Sarah Palin.

She posted:

Mega dittos from the EIB network headquarters in Florida! Got to meet one of my heroes today, Rush Limbaugh. As I’ve said many times, I was a ditto-head before ditto-head was cool! I was delighted to get a copy of Rush’s new book “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims.” Great book for readers of ALL ages. Thank you, Rush, for all you do to educate Americans everyday on the things that make this nation so exceptional.

Brave, selfless, courageous people are heroes.  Role models are heroes.

Some arrogant pile of garbage who makes a living spewing vile hatred, racism and total ignorance is not any kind of “hero.”  And anyone who would view Rush Limbaugh as any sort of a “hero” only shows what a low-life piece of trash they really are.

Seriously, to look up to Rush Limbaugh?  Even many of my conservative friends think he’s disgusting.

But that’s not all she said — she also thanked Limbaugh for educating Americans everyday and being part of what makes this country exceptional.


She believes Rush Limbaugh is someone who helps “educate” Americans and is part of what makes this country “exceptional”?  She said this about Rush Limbaugh?  Limbaugh, someone who constantly degrades women and minorities.  Someone who’s cheated on several wives.  A self-proclaimed “Christian” in Sarah Palin believes Limbaugh to be exceptional?

Then these people wonder why I don’t consider them Christians.

I always knew Sarah Palin was an absolute fool, but her comments about Limbaugh have placed her in a whole new level of stupidity as far as I’m concerned.  And to think, she was could have been VP.

Sarah Palin proves why elections and voting are so important.  Just think about it — had liberals been apathetic in 2008, allowing John McCain to become president, Sarah Palin could very well be our vice president and one heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

If that doesn’t motivate you to get out and vote every election, I don’t know what will.
