William Shatner's "Raw" featured Rush at his most pompous best. He really is an SOB.
Shatner immediately dispels the Republican myth that Democrats don't share the same feelings about a free society and fiscal discipline as they do. It needed to be said, finally! In one exchange, Shatner says, "Everybody wants the principals you're exposing." But Rush is a reality denier, and flatly states "No they don't." The "up is down" leap of logic has never been more exposed.
But it doesn't stop there. Even more revealing:
Shatner: "If you have money, you're gonna get health care. If you don't have money, it's more difficult."
Rush: "If you have money, you're going to get a house on the beach., if you don't have money you're going to live in a bungalow."
Shatner: "But we're talking about health care."
Rush: "What's the difference?"
Shatner: "The difference is we're talking about health care, not a house or a bungalow."
Rush: "No, you're assuming there is some morally superior aspect to health care, than there is to a house and a bungalow."
Shatner: "Isn't it valid, that the health care system today is breaking the country?"
Rush: "No. I don't believe it is."
Nothing demonstrates the moral, logical and ideological disfunction of the conservative mind set than this short exchange between Shatner and Limbaugh.
