Bill Strikes Again

How ironic that it takes Bill Shatner to take it to Rush Limbaugh for his myriad warped positions better than any so-called journalist I’ve ever seen.

However, in their interview the following exchange truly bullseyes Limbaugh’s gaping lack of awareness on the topic of modern American life:

"Here's my premise and you agree with it or not," Shatner posited. "If you have money, you are going to get health care. If you don't have money, it's more difficult."

Rush skirted the issue and chose to talk about real estate instead. "If you have money you're gonna get a house on the beach. If you don't have money you're gonna live in a bungalow somewhere."

Wrong, shithead. If one doesn’t have money—or a job—one isn’t going to live in a swanky bungalow. One is going to live on the fucking street.

Are you honestly so wrapped up in your own wealth that you can’t fathom how normal people live, especially in the midst of the worst US recession since 1929?
