Rush Limbaugh thinks that the Democrats are “bending over and grabbing their ankles” for “the blacks” and “the gays.”

CALLER: Hello. I want to know how the Republicans don’t need Christians and conservatives, and they think we’re 30 percent. Twelve percent black people in the population. Ten percent — they claim — homosexuals in the population. Rush, honey, when did 30 percent get to be a small number?

LIMBAUGH: I don’t — I think it’s actually larger than 30 percent. But let me see if I can get your question right. You want to know why the Republicans are willing to say, “Screw you,” to 30 percent or more of their voters and yet Democrats will bend over, grab the ankles, and say, “Have your way with me,” for 10 percent and 2 percent of the population?

So aside from the idea that it’s wrong for a political party to represent the interests of its constituents–that is if those constituents are gay or black, rather than Christian and conservative, (and since there are certainly both conservative gays and conservative black folks, why all the hate?) what is up with Rush and this whole “bend over and grab the ankles” thing? He seems to have a fascination with the image.

The federal judiciary is going to do everything it can to stop spermatozoa and mollusks from coming in, but other invasive species? We’re supposed to bend over and grab the ankles and say, “Deal with it.

Know what he’s going to do? He’s going to go down there and basically apologize for what has come to be known as the Southern Strategy, popularized in the Nixon administration. He’s going to go down there and apologize for it. In the midst of all of this, in the midst of all that’s going on, once again, Republicans are going to go bend over and grab the ankles.

“A study published yesterday suggests that a daily pint of beer or large glass of wine increases the risk of bowel cancer by 10%. Two pints or two large glasses of wine increases the risk by 25%.” You don’t have to grab your ankles anymore, folks. Just drink the red wine or beer or whatever, and while you think you’re saving your heart and lowering your cholesterol, you’re getting bowel cancer out there.

April, 2008, on Barack Obama.

The people on the left, the Obama supporters want to be smoked. They bent over forward and grabbed the ankles and say “have at me” and do whatever it takes. The story is out today that the congressional superdelegates, “It’s over.” They have chosen Obama, not officially but somebody has done a head count. The congressional superdelegates have chosen Obama.

I can’t stand being around fatalists. I can’t stand being around defeatists. I understand it, but at some point I lose my ability to respond to them. How many times can you say, “I’m sorry you feel that way,” and what does that accomplish? I don’t want to sit here, “Yeah, we’re screwed. Damn it, we’re really screwed! Yeah, you’re right. We are so screwed. Bend over forward, backgrounds, grab the ankles. We’re screwed,” and then what do you do? I’ll never forget Ronald Reagan.
This is truly profound. Because you got the Drive-By Media just up in arms that this is happening in the first place, because they think it’s “un-American,” and it’s a violation of the law, and it’s “tampering with the sacred, time-honored vote,” blah, blah, blah. Of course, to them, what we’re supposed to do as Republicans, is we’re just supposed to bend over forward, grab the ankles, and lose.
There are…a lot more. If I didn’t know better, I might think Limbaugh was somewhat preoccupied with the concept. 

But continuing on to the original point, what other historically marginalized groups does Limbaugh think are too impure to have their interests represented by a political party in this country? You can just hear him choking back “the Jews”.

Oh wait.

LIMBAUGH: The — there’s a complicated answer to this and I’m going to have answer some of it in the monologue in the next hour, but one of the simple answers that will require some elaboration is that a lot of money is coming from these kooks — and I’m not talking about just the blacks — I’m talking about a whole kook-fringe base because George Soros is running it —

Now I ain’t know that black folks had gotten to the point where we were part of a global financial conspiracy, and just last year Limbaugh was arguing that we were all sitting around waiting for welfare. Which is it Rush?

We knew Obama would make some folks get their white sheets out, but damn Rush, it’s only June. By November he’s going to be calling for “strict constructionist” judges to bring back Dred Scott.  And if McCain won’t do it, why then, he’s just bend–ahem. Well, you know.
