Headline of the Day

Perfect. That is obviously just a perfect headline that really encapsulates an important truth. Good job, Team Limbaugh!

In case you're wondering what, exactly, it was that caused Rush Limbaugh to proclaim that the President of the United States hates the United States, it was his saying this during a campaign appearance in Virginia last week:
If you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own! I'm always struck by people who think, "Well, it must be 'cause I was just so smart!" There are a lot of smart people out there! "It must be because I worked harder than everybody else." Let me tell you something: There are a whole bunch of hardworkin' people out there! If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help!
How dare he. This is why Mitt Romney is going to pick a pair of bootstraps as his running mate, to remind REAL AMERICA that nobody who's anybody ever got any help from somebody! Or something!
