The irony of Limbaugh

It only took about 3 minutes today before I heard Rush Limbaugh say something so ironic it was stupid. He was talking about President Obama’s response to Mubarak and in the course of making stuff up he said that Obama wants Mubarak to fail. Then he called Obama “the worst person in the world” for that (among other things, including being black, but I digress). Wasn’t it Limbaugh who said he hopes this president fails?

Dear middle-aged person in class,

Shut up. Shut the hell up. No one cares about how some historical event relates to your life. In fact, your relevance to the subject matter of the class approaches zero.

Good news from Senator Jon Kyl

This may be the first good thing he has ever said.

Republican Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona is expected to announce his retirement Thursday, David Catanese and Jennifer Epstein report for Politico, opening up a seat he’s held for three terms and complicating Republican efforts to hold it.

Kyl will make his official announcement at a press conference this afternoon in Phoenix.
