Limbaugh angry at “fat” “fool” Gov. Christie for acting grown-up

Rush Limbaugh isn’t happy with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) putting electoral politics aside and working with President Obama like a mature adult – and even thanking him for doing a good job – in the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation:

Heed the warning. Except what Governor Christie says. He’s fat and a fool. Don’t listen to Governor Christie. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He makes fun of me all the time.

That screeching rumble you just heard wasn’t an earthquake, but rather, the sound of everyone alive exploding with laughter at the thought of Rush freakin’ Limbaugh unironically accusing anyone else of being overweight (entirely irrelevant as that is), stupid, or mean-spirited, given his lifelong work of perfecting his incarnation of the Ugly American. They simply don’t make irony meters strong enough to survive whenever the man opens his facial manhole.

On another level, it’s considerably entertaining to witness all the squeals of dismay from the far-Right at the sight of their erstwhile beloved politician actually pulling his sleeves up and putting the well-being of his disaster-stricken citizenry first. It’s anyone’s guess whether they’re jealous of Gov. Christie for acting in a principled manner, or whether it’s the very idea of being principled that’s alien to them.
