I For One Refuse To Believe It

Atrios quotes Roll Call saying this:

Rumors were swirling around Capitol Hill and beyond Tuesday that Rush Limbaugh is dating actress Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Chloe O'Brian on the Fox series "24."

This can't be true. Why? Because I simply won't accept it. Let's remember Mary Lynn Rajskub dated David Cross during the first few seasons of Mr. Show. Here's David Cross on his album It's Not Funny:

"The terrorists hate our freedom. They hate liberty"...

I don't think Osama bin Laden sent those planes in to attack us because he hated our freedom. I think he did it because of our support for Israel, and our ties with the Saudi family, and all our military bases in Saudi Arabia.

You know why I think that?


Going from that to Rush Limbaugh would give you some serious worldview whiplash.

Is that the "Here's Bob and David!" woman from Mr. Show? Because if so, she should date ME.

Weren't there several different "Here's Bob and David!" women? I believe she was one of them. She also appeared in numerous sketches.

BRG - Yea that is her. Damnit. How could she?

Thanks Jon.. You just had to ruin the sweet satisfaction of Rush getting caught with viagra and possibly violating the terms of this plea bargain. It was a great story until you had to point out WHY he had the viagra.

Much like the New York Times has deprived me of my "right to live" you have now deprived me of my "right not to be totally creeped out"

No way. Does anyone know where Ann Coulter was during his trip?

I'm starting a new rumor here. Help me out folks.

Keep them conservatives away from our women!

In my experience thats not too hard to do. I dont see very many of my liberal female friends drooling over Hannity.

Although come to think of it, one of the most radical organizers I know, when drunk, will secrely admit that she thinks W is "kinda hot". WTF?

Ahh, evolution in action!

I remember when Limbaugh ranted about teens having too much oral sex and he was supposed to have been dating that CNN anchor at the time and people speculated that it meant she wouldn't, well, you know...

All I know is I wish letting conservos get some were sufficient to get them to quit stirring shit up and fomenting for theocracy. Or in the case of Ann Coulter, maybe someone could just buy her a cheeseburger and tell her she doesn't look fat. Wouldn't it be nice if it were that simple? But I guess they have a hunger more powerful than the drives for sex or food.

Should Limbaugh be allowed to multiply? Maybe we could change the constitution.

The Dominican Republic is famous as a 'sex tourism' destination. Western men who go to 3rd world countries as 'sex tourists' often do so seeking to do something that's illegal at home -- having sex with children, for example. El Rushbo is busted coming back from the Dominican Republic with Viagra in his suitcase. There is no mention of Rush having a travel companion. What does 1 + 1 + 1 equal?

I'd make a comparison with the motivational speaker from Donnie Darko here, but clearly Rush favors fear over love.
