An irritable-sounding Rush Limbaugh slammed workers on Tuesday. Casual observers might conclude he's unhappy because his young wife Kathryn (no, I won't use the "T" word) has filed for a construction permit for separate his and hers showers (in limestone!) in the Rush Limbaugh mansion. She's tearing out the single shower that Rush has relied upon all these years.
Actually, I look at it differently — this may be a step forward in the, uhh, consummation department. When the couple were married, Rush gave his pretty young wife her own condo on his property, and an extra one to boot, presumably for her guests. And Gossip Extra (can't believe I'm using this as a source) says she spends a lot of "quality time" there.
His and hers towels, too? Indeed, I wish them well, and would like to think this new construction is because Rush plans to spend a lot more time at home in the near future. No longer any need to harangue every perceived enemy on the radio when the country is moving in a different direction...
It can't come soon enough. Today Rush prattled,
there is this singular solution: raise taxes on the rich. That's the singular objective that everybody has. And I'm telling you, it isn't gonna matter a hill of beans. All it's gonna do is further expand the government and weaken the private sector.Media Matters For America has the audio of Rush making all these idiotic assumptions in his attack on working people:
It's gonna weaken hiring. It's gonna weaken job creation. It is gonna weaken the opportunity to create wealth in the private sector. And that's the design of it. What I'm telling you is that the damage to the private sector is still underway. The assault on capitalism and the private sector is still underway. They are not through. Look at the unions and the activities. They're amassing against Walmart. They're amassing at LAX trying to shut down travel on Thanksgiving, shopping on Thanksgiving. You might ask, "Well, what are they mad at? They won the election." They're never happy, folks. The left never, no matter what they win and no matter what you give them, it's never enough. It's why I've always been opposed to compromise with them. There is no compromising with them. There is no point where they're ever happy.

The tone is not much different than many of his other attacks on workers:
Fact is, Rush always sounds grumpy when he's talking about people he doesn't like.
Here are a couple of my recent diaries about Rush, in case you missed them:

|Rush Limbaugh's talk radio career is in a slow downward spiral in part because of the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his hate speech. One very active group in this cause is Flush Rush on Facebook. Flush Rush and other, similar groups use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.
