Colbert Report Rush sighting
9:55AM EST | comments (76) |

Rush on Colbert ReportThere was a fairly major Rush sighting on last night's Colbert Report on Comedy Central. In a segment where Colbert is discussing Rush Limbaugh's influence on the Republican electorate he mentions how John McCain is winning in the Republican presidential primaries despite being opposed by major talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh. He states that this has a lot of people questioning the influence of Rush. Immediately after saying this, a clip of Rush (the band) from their Tom Sawyer video plays. He then interrupts and says Jim, Jim [his director] ... not that Rush. He then goes on about Limbaugh and says ... is Rush [Limbaugh] no longer living in the limelight?. You guessed it... then a clip of Rush's Limelight video plays. He then interrupts again saying Jimmy, Jimmy, that's enough ... stop! I apologize. As you can see my director is a big fan of Rush. He has Geddy Lee posters all over his office.... You can watch the clip below; it begins a couple minutes in. Thanks to AK and the2112 for the heads up.

Hey everybody. I think I'm going to put a lid on this thread before it gets out of hand. I guess it's to be expected when the post involved Rush Limbaugh. :) Back to your regularly scheduled programming...

that's right Dino, that "mis-guided uber-patriotism that washed over reason and sense" has only prevented another attack since September 11th, 2001.

Repeat after me liberals - "President Bush was right, we were wrong"

After 4 years of war the US Army is now battle-tested Killing Machine, mowing down evil Islamics. They are all literally running for their very lives right now. That's why there have been no attacks. Period.

"You can't have freedom for free"

prime, good song. I like to quote that one in political situations myself. I used to use the line
"Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colourful rag is unfurled"
as my e-mail signature line as a response to all the mis-guided uber-patriotism that washed over reason and sense in the aftermath of 911.

I agree with Rush Limbaugh about most everything.

You know why?

Because he is the only person on the radio I have EVER heard that read from Atlas Shrugged.

Liberals should be ashamed at how far they've gone into accepting the collectivist/fascist philosophy, which is completely against what Neil's lyrics have stood for.

But I guess the concept of actually listening to what Rush says and not going by what Jon Stewart says about Limbaugh, and conservatives in general, is just too darn difficult!

Cheers to both Rushes...

Oh, and great clip! Exposes assholes for what they really are. :)

And by the way...
My mother has had Parkinson's for 20 years now, and I can say as a FACT, that her illness has never been an "exaggeration"...

So FUCK Rush Limbaugh...

Rush (the band) RULES.

I know I shouldn't get political, and I'll reserve my comments for somewhere other than RIAB, but some of the above comments have had me and thinking of a particular song all day...

lol. Republican Rush fans. lol. ha ha ha ha ha. lol Here's one for yas...

I see the Middle Kingdom between Heaven and Earth
Like the Chinese call the country of their birth
We all figure that our homes are set above
Other people than the ones we know and love

In every place with a name
They play the same territorial game
Hiding behind the lines
Sending up warning signs

The whole wide world
An endless universe
Yet we keep looking through
The eyeglass in reverse
Don't feed the people
But we feed the machines
Can't really feel
What international means
In different circles
We keep holding our ground
Indifferent circles
We keep spinning round and round

We see so many tribes - overrun and undermined
While their invaders dream of lands they've left behind
Better people - better food - and better beer
Why move around the world when Eden was so near?

The bosses get talking so tough
And if that wasn't evil enough
We get the drunken and passionate pride
Of the citizens along for the ride

They shoot without shame
In the name of a piece of dirt
For a change of accent
Or the colour of your shirt

Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colourful rag is unfurled

Sound familiar? Pretty much sums up the last 7 years.... lol :)

Cool about the sign on the Hockey Boards. I noticed that a few weeks ago as well at a Panthers game.

Have to check out the replay of the game on RDS. They have what's called "Canadians Express" They condense a whole game into 1 hour. I think that's on right now!!!

Another minor Rush sighting that i thought was cool....
I'm a big hockey fan and i was watching the Panthers vs Canadians and in the visitors corner board they have a big sign- RUSH april 13th with the SA album cover next to it.....i noticed people writing about how they haven't really been pumping the tour up too much yet, but down here in s. florida i've noticed more ads this far away from the date than ever.....i've actually seen a few spots on TV which i don't recall ever seeing on previous tours.......

just thought i'd mention it...
