Fail Quote: Limbaugh blames Obama for latest shooting

I honestly do my best to stay away from the likes of Rush Limbaugh most of the time, as the poisonous gasbag rarely has anything novel to offer amidst the bigoted freakshow he calls a radio program. But every now and then, I just have to let you know that he’s just said something exceptionally moronic:

The New York Daily News and a lot of the New York media and some of the television networks -- New York Daily News reporting that the Empire State Building shooter -- you heard about this? OK. New York Daily News reporting the Empire State Building shooter did indeed kill his boss. Well, he was fired yesterday [or a year ago … whichever, right?]. He went out there and he killed his boss. I wonder if Obama's constant warfare on bosses and so forth might have led this guy to pull the trigger.

He’s like a mildly less religion-addled Pat Robertson: Whereas the latter likes to blame all sorts of disasters on whatever minority or civil rights group he imagined pissed in his morning oatmeal, Rushbo prefers to point his slimy finger solely at the President, no matter what sorts of Olympic-level mental gymnastics he must force his brain through in the process.

I’m honestly not sure which is more loathsome. Can’t we just blast them both into orbit?
