I had a grand time guest-hosting for Rush on America's Number One radio show. You can sample a few moments from the show - or, for Rush 24/7 subscribers, the full three hours - here. It was a strange blend of geopolitical foreign-policy big-picture strategy and, er, duck genitalia. In the grim roll call of America's retreat from the world, almost two years after the sacking of the US diplomatic facility in Benghazi and the murder of its ambassador, the Libyan embassy itself has also fallen:
The US Embassy in Tripoli is now in the hands of the jihad boys. They're all diving into the pool at the compound and posting pictures of it on social media. It turns out the fellows that like to chop your head off know how to use YouTube, Facebook and Twitter better than Obama and all the cool kids he's got surrounding him in his Oval Office team. That's what it's come to: He's not even a good tweeter.
As for the duck genitalia, that's something the United States Government is studying with your tax dollars. Apparently, the female duck has a vagina that is a clockwise corkscrew, and the male duck has a penis that is a counterclockwise corkscrew - which prompted one caller to observe that Obama is trying to insert is counterclockwise foreign policy into a clockwise corkscrew of a world. At any rate, HR chipped in with the following quatrain (author unknown):
There once was a man with a corkscrew penis
Who searched o'er the world for a corkscrew Venus
But alas when he found one, oh such dread
For the corkscrew Venus had a left-hand thread.
Words to ponder.
HR, Mr Snerdley and I will be back for Wednesday's Rush Limbaugh Show, with three of live substitute-host-level excellence in broadcasting direct from Ice Station EIB starting at 12 noon Eastern.
