Fail Quote of the Day: Limbaugh attacks educated speech

| »

From the perennially anti-intellectual Rush Limbaugh, attacking a Fox News panel’s positive reactions to President Obama’s Tuscon shooting memorial speech:

LIMBAUGH: They were slobbering over it for the predictable reasons: it was smart, it was articulate, it was oratorical. It was, it was all the things the educated, ruling class wants their members to be and sound like.

“Godammit, we don’t want no smarty-pants, fancy-talkin’ edjumacated President! We want a loudmouthed, hillbilly dumbass like the rest of us!”

Though, given the majority of the US citizenry these days, that does sound closer to fair representation.
