Lord Rushbo: The Prefect from Palm Beach

Heard about this via Balloon Juice:
"Largely decorated by Limbaugh himself, [his Palm Beach house] reflects the things and places he has seen and admired. A massive chandelier in the dining room, for example, is a replica of the one that hung in the lobby of New York's Plaza Hotel. The vast salon is meant to suggest Versailles. The main guest suite, which I didn't visit, is an exact replica of the Presidential Suite at the Hotel George V in Paris. There is a full suit of armor on display, as well as a life-size oil painting of El Rushbo. Fragrant candles burned throughout the house, a daily home-from-the-wars ritual." - [WaPo]

Presidential Suite at Hotel George V in Paris

Le Roi Soleil Limbaugh's gaudy petit appartement du NYC chambers on 5th Avenue were for sale a a couple of months ago.

Fanfare for the Common Dittohead:

Haint it funny that the prince consort of movement conservatism and the current Republican Party would find so much comfort in poofy French replica pomposity. I'll bet he has a boxwood shrub in a c-ment planter right on the front porch too. And a fountain or two also too. I wonder how many jets of water he has in the old place.

Limbaugh has skillfully conjured for his listeners a world in which they are disdained and despised by mysterious elites -- a world in which Limbaugh's $4,000 bottles of wine do not exclude him from the life of the common man.

Sarah Palin, take notes.

I can't decide which of the next 3 would be considered the best soundtrack for a Life with RUSH! reality is something you create series.

(a) Minuettes, waltzes and such, but nothing after the timeframe you wish you were born in, or Magically Arrived at like a Neo-Quantum Leap.

(b) A medley of anything burned into the collective minds of about 2 or 3 generations as "something bad is gonna happen" tv, movie, and radio music. Darth, Klingons, Jaws, 'coupla Mike Douglas Male Whore movie themes, "Warning!, Will Robinson!" you name it.

(c) all bullshit bandwagon post-Reagan "patriotic" renderings (like a meat plant) by True Believers. Let the Eagle soar!

Is he wearing tights, or the same size sweatpants as back when his bunghole sent that letter to keep him safe from the Draft Board?Along with a Liberace cape?

All Rush Linmbaugh ever wanted to be was rich, thus I tend to take his career with a grain of salt and then some. Although he is undoubtedly conservative (though unreconstructed Southern racist elitist would be a better description), Limbaugh is primarily a cynic. He would have read the entirety of Mao's Little Red Book over the air if he had thought there was any money in it.

lamebaugh's ronny raygun is a mythical raygun as he is mis-remembered.

dr- prebellum Southern gentleman, perhaps?

It really sucks that it took B. Franklin a shitload of time to travel to & from France, and this shithead can afford his own SR-71.

A dastardly, bastardly trick of history. If only we could re-write it as well as that loathsome slug.

would that be Antebellum? I just got to thinking about the meridian.

9mm Parabellum only mixes me up because it's different from 9mm Luger, or 9mm Makarov, and 9mm x 25.
