And I Doubt He's Fueling Up EIB-1 For This

Kathy Shaidle asks, “How stupid are liberals? This stupid:”


Health-insurance-free Mike and Patrick of Brooklyn, creators of ATicketForRush.com, are moving ahead with their effort to convince radio Talker Rush Limbaugh to move to Costa Rica to escape health care reform in the USA. But Rush’s refusal to fly commercial has proven to be a setback.

They say they do have enough to put Limbaugh up in a cottage for six months, and to provide for two weeks of Spanish lessons. They also seem proud of the fact that Limbaugh invested 724 words on his radio show calling the project dumb.

The goal now is to charter a jet. To date the site has raised $2,812.

It’s bad enough that you guys willfully misinterpreted/didn’t “get” Rush’s “Costa Rica” line to begin with.

But you guys and your “supporters” realize that, like, Rush Limbaugh already owns his own plane. Right? (And it’s nicer than your house.)

So your whole “comedy” premise was screwed before it began because you didn’t use your friend Google.

Ignorance of your ememies makes you look like the stupid one. Just sayin’.

Heh, indeed.™

The RNC explains that Steele charters jets only when commercial service is unavailable, or when his tight schedule requires it. “Anytime the chairman has taken any private travel has been a either to a route that doesn’t exist or because of connections and multiple travel to where he just wasn’t able to do so,” Heye said. Yet Steele’s office repeatedly refused to explain in specific terms the circumstances of the February charter flights.

Once on the ground, FEC filings suggest, Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons, and $1,620.71 spent [update: the amount is actually $1,946.25] at Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.

RNC trips to other cities produced bills from a long list of chic and costly hotels such as the Venetian and the M Resort in Las Vegas, and the W (for a total of $19,443) in Washington. A midwinter trip to Hawaii cost the RNC $43,828, not including airfare.

Steele himself declined numerous interview requests, though his defenders point out that luxurious accommodations are sometimes necessary to attract big-time donors, especially since Republicans remain in the minority in Washington.

I hope Steele understands that the state-run media only turns a blind eye to such partying when it involve Democrats, particularly Kennedys.
