I give you Rush Limbaugh defending Bush’s flight suit stunt, while criticizing the president for being “narcissistic.”
Everyone in politics, including and especially Limbaugh, are narcissistic. Not news. What’s also interesting here is that Limbaugh knows he’s contradicting himself. He knows it. And yet he doesn’t care. The goal is to antagonize, so it’s not just about the remarks themselves, but it’s also the contradictions. He knows the inconsistency will piss us off, too. This is it. The entire strategy of the conservative movement anymore: say anything that will piss off liberals, even if it sounds crazy, hypocritical and contradictory.
