“Feeeeed me!” Rush’s ego demanded.

Giddy from all the smoke the groveling, dittohead Republicans (and the media) are frantically blowing up his pimpled ass these days, Rush Limbaugh doubled down on the batshit insane this afternoon, challenging President Obama to debate him on his "talk" show.

 If these guys are so impressed with themselves, and if they are so sure of their correctness, why doesn’t President Obama come on my show? . . . I am offering President Obama to come on this program — without staffers, without a TelePrompTer, without note cards — to debate me on the issues.” 

Whatever, Rush. The President, slightly preoccupied with keeping the country from plummeting headlong into the abyss, is going to take time out of his hectic schedule to stroke the ego of  a drug addicted, misogynistic, racist radio personality with lower approval ratings than George W. Bush.  Gosh, I’m sure Obama believes your position as de facto leader of the Republican Party is just that important, and really, how often does a President get to spar with the Master Debater?

I asked:

[P]utting aside the question of what the policies are in your view destined to do, is it true that if they fail in their stated goal of righting the economy, won’t the country suffer further as a result?

Rush answered:

I reject your premise, especially since you are rejecting my answers. I will not put aside the question of what the policies are destined to do because that IS THE POINT.

Limbaugh isn’t even capable of debate via email. Pathetic, really.  But not quite as laughable as his increasingly histrionic, unhinged Alex Forrest routine:

“Your flunkies are demanding this debate,” Limbaugh said to Obama. “Your flunkies are targeting a private citizen with an enemies list that so far has three or four names on it: Mine; [CNBC’s] Rick Santelli; Jim Cramer at CNBC; and let’s not forget Joe the Plumber, who your allies in Ohio also tried to destroy.”

“The difference is that Joe the Plumber does not have his own microphone every day. They’re shutting Santelli up at CNBC. They’re going to shut Cramer up pretty soon, too, but he’ll go down with a fight,” Limbaugh said. “That isn’t going to happen here, to me.”

Right.  Because the last time Rush faced the real world, he had to clear the room
