    The Tea Party Trinity

    ...The Holy Trinity of the Far Right – Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck & Sean Hannity…the Father, the Son and the Holy embodiment of H.L. Mencken’s opinion that, “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. “

    All three make millions and millions of dollars preaching fear, paranoia and intolerance, all disguised in a monotheistic message of jingoistic patriotism and contempt for government and disdain for education.

    Why is that do you suppose? Well, mainly for the money, but also because none of them ARE educated and, while they saber rattle constantly, they all somehow managed to avoid actually serving their country.

    Rush Limbaugh
    Education: Two semesters at Southeast Missouri State U. – His mom said, “He flunked everything.”
    Military Service: None

    Glen Beck
    Education: Enrolled and soon withdrew from one college course, “Early Christology" (?)
    Military Service: None

    Sean Hannity
    Education: a seminary high school, followed by dropping out of, not one but two universities, NYU and Adelphi
    Military Service: None

    Preach on, hypocrites.

    • Is that all you can find to complain about? You pick three entertainers, no politicians, no one that hold a public office or has ever run for office. Just how do you think these guys have the power to influence a government as large as ours?

      Your next target is not even a true political party. Are you liberals so afraid of the dark that you complain about shadows?

      Meanwhile back in Washington everyday brings some new revelation about the poor decision-making, hiring practices and oversight of this corrupt administration. All the scandals going on in Washington and you spend your time complaining about TV and radio personalities? I used to think you had some sort of hidden agenda like your favorite President, but now I have to back off...I don't think you’re that smart.

      Then you claim, like your hero, that this is ‘no there, there’. You claim that all the bad stuff is being made up by Fox News, but half of Washington is tied up in hearing because of details in the IG’s report that the administration didn’t think would be found. Each day bring yet another different explanation about Benghazi. Boy, Fox News must really have some power! If they are that powerful, perhaps they should be running the country?

        “He flunked everything…” – Mrs. Limbaugh

        No politicians in that joke?...okay… Here ya’ go…a veritable comedy club lineup…adding up the collective IQ’s of this group doesn’t get you to triple digits…but, then again, you probably can’t count that high.

        Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Rand/Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jim Demint, Scott Brown, Jeb Bush, Mark Sanford, Eric Cantor, Newt Gingrich, Buddy Roemer, Haley Barbour, Bobby Jindal, Allen West, #$%$ Cheney, John Bolton, John Boehner, Joe Arpaio, John Cornyn…and on and on…good luck in ’16 with your continued efforts at “dumbing down”* America.

        *“dumbing down” – “The idea of and the term ‘dumbing down’ originated in 1933 as slang used by motion picture screenplay writers, to mean “revise so as to appeal to those of little education or intelligence.”

        Today it’s the mantra of the Tea Party…and you represent them well.

    • Obama, no military service and we still don't know about his college grades only that he spent most of his last years in HS smoking dope. That makes it quicker to get scholarships I guess.

      • Pres Obama is Commander in Chief for almost 5 years now. He didn't need to go in the military during his youth, a lot people who went for higher education didn't in those non draft years. You need to look to who you voted for, Romney, and ask why no military when the draft was on and boys were dying by the thousands in Vietnam. You need to see the Pres's grades when you need to see McCains, Palins and Romneys, not to mention Ryans, who managed to get a BA at some college. The President has a law degree from Harvard, taught law, and was a state and US Senator. Not enough for you still? The President does not need to work three times as hard for you as anyone else, to get less credit.

        Sentiment: Buy

      • You people are clearly nuts.

    • And those three are doing so much more to save our country than you are with your bright shiny GED. I don't recall your service record but I am sure it is equally shiny.

    • echo you know you are a true idiot...you only scream about broadcasters and not about what really matters . You have this thing against anything, that you in your warped mind , find not be to your liking . truth be told this is not a bad country it is a piece of art that just needs a little more paint

      You curse President Bush for his wars yet defend the likes of kenedy and johnson's wars that cost us so much in the lives of young men...you claim to be a marine(YEAH) yet you scream that when we attacked after 9-11 we were wrong . You are like the left wing morons that approved of the wars in congress and as politicians do later said they were against it due to public opinion in their districts .So we say that maybe one day ....one day.....
