Rush Limbaugh, showing all of the moral myopia that afflicts not just the right wing but most Americans, says that the sequestration deal has, for the first time, made him ashamed of his country. Because of all the things our government has done, budget negotiations are the one thing that can cause him shame.
The prospect of sequestration has Rush Limbaugh making an eye-catching admission.
“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country,” Limbaugh told radio listeners today. “Seriously man, here we get worked up over $44 billion. That’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year.”
If a liberal said something like that, Fox News would be blaring “I am ashamed of my country” in a banner headline with a picture of the person who said it wearing a turban and strapped with explosives.
