I thought it was the left that unthinkingly supported “resistance armies”

This morning’s delectable “no, just no” news comes courtesy of bloated, gout-riddled windbag Rush Limbaugh:

“Now, up until today, most Americans have never heard of the combat Lord’s Resistance Army. And here we are at war with them. Have you ever heard of Lord’s Resistance Army, Dawn? How about you, Brian? Snerdley, have you? You never heard of Lord’s Resistance Army? Well, proves my contention, most Americans have never heard of it, and here we are at war with them. Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians. It means God.”

Overlooking the detailed record of their brutality and bizarre practices, Mr. Limbaugh then added: “They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan. And Obama has sent troops, United States troops, to remove them from the battlefield, which means kill them. So that’s a new war, a hundred troops to wipe out Christians in Sudan, Uganda.”

Now it’s possibly a bit much to be surprised by opportunistic, hypocritical wilful ignorance from that man at this point.

Still, my initial thoughts on reading this were that I wished freedom of the press was coupled with responsibility of the press.

Although that way lies disaster, I know, because who defines nebulous concepts like responsibility? Most likely the very people you wouldn’t want doing so.

So let me rephrase: I do wish freedom of the press was coupled with Rush Limbaugh being on fire.
