Hey everyone, I’ve been reading several of the comments on message boards that have been popping up about the Rush Limbaugh post from Friday (this one), and feel compelled to repeat that it was a JOKE.
I thought that would be evident from the over-the-top verbiage (it even included an exact quote from Dr. Strangelove: “precious bodily fluids…”), plus the disclaimer at the end:
The preceding was entirely fictional. Just Friday funnies. Duh.
But it looks like a lot of people thought it was actually a news article instead of a thoroughly fictional spoof. No, Rush did not claim credit for overthrowing the government of Kyrgyzstan.
I’ll return to regular, non-spoofish programming shortly. Thanks for reading.
