Fuck it, you're a troll. It's quite clear what the point was, and you are being willfully obtuse. I expect it on Metafilter, but I'm not interested here.

Fuck it, you're a troll.

If by 'troll' you mean 'person who is confused and scared about the fate of a nation being piloted by douchebags' then yes.

F-Bomb, if you aren't trolling, you pretty much have to concede that we're saying:

Limbaugh is a douche because he is a hypocrite regarding his statement on drug abuse and addiction.

You seem to be trying to ignore that by saying "you are mad at him because he is a Republican! look at one of the Kennedy people!"

And then we say "no, it is not because of party affiliation, the Kennedy people are very fair and understanding in their statements and political actions in regards to drug abuse and addiction."

And then you say "No, LOOK OVER THERE, GODZILLA! HA HA, I WON BY POINTING OUT GODZILLA!"

And then we say "What the hell are you talking about?"

That is trolling.

If you are confused and doing that on accident, your accident has been pointed out to you.

(I've never seen LFM that pissed off... and he was pissed off at a concept I had never heard of until today.)
So I had to look up what "trolling" was. I don't think thats what hes doing on purpose, but I guess that was the result.

I think that Rush is a crap dude and that the Kennedys are also crap dudes.

Rush is a crap dude for being a loudmouth blusterbutt who happens to be a hypocrite.

The Kennedys are crap dudes because they think they are above the law. They are elected representatives, therefore they should be held to at least the same standards that I would be held to if I were caught driving drunk or under the influence of pills, and tried to lie my way out of it.

Pissed off? Nah.

Annoyed enough to get didactic? Sure.

Since he's still trying to make this about attacking the Kennedies and glossing over the main point of the conversation, Limbaugh's hypocrisy, I gotta assume the dude's just trying to rile people up.

Randomly changing the topic when you are "losing" the argument is rule number one of trolling.

To be fair, when you're not the internet, the tactic is called "the GOPAC Talking Points Fax of the Day". Veterans being treated for their wounds in Dickensian conductions? YELL A LOT ABOUT THE GAYS. A bunch of attorneys fired for not smearing Democrats before the election? YELL A LOT ABOUT THE GAYS.

It is only on the internet that this is called "trolling".

So basically, because Kennedy never was on an anti-drug campaign like Rush was, that means he's ok because he isn't a hypocrite? Is that what I am not getting?

I just noticed that both of the mods of this board are guys who don't come around here much anymore so I am going to jump in. I think I will lock this thread as having outlived its usefulness and in the hopes that you will all go spend your energy posting more interesting posts elsewhere.
