Just when you thought so-called conservatives couldn’t get any loopier. On his radio show, Rush Limbaugh blamed President Obama and the Democrats for faking weather reports that said Hurricane Issac might hit Tampa. According to Limbaugh:
It’s the government. It’s Obama.
And I’m noticing that that track stayed zeroed in on Tampa day after day after day. And the Republicans react to it accordingly over the weekend, canceling the first day of the convention. What could be better for the Democrats than the Republicans to cancel a day of this? [...]
Okay, 6:45 p.m. Saturday night the Republicans announce that they’re canceling Monday. At 6:45 p.m. Saturday night, everybody is still under the impression that Isaac is making a beeline for very close to Tampa. It was an hour and 15 minutes later that the eight p.m. model runs showed New Orleans. I’m alleging no conspiracy. I’m just telling you, folks, when you put this all together in this timeline, I’m telling you, it’s unbelievable.
I’d say that Limbaugh needs to be medicated. But lack of prescription drugs is not his problem.
