Dukin' it Out for 2010 Idiot of the Year Award

Evidently, responding rapidly to urgent crises in which lives are at stake is nothing more than pandering to the black community.

(Jan. 13) – In the wake of Haiti's catastrophic earthquake, which claimed thousands of lives, including several Americans, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh took aim at President Barack Obama for pledging aid so swiftly. On his radio show on Jan. 13, Limbaugh vented to listeners that Obama – who was on winter holiday in Hawaii when Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried but failed to bring down a U.S. airliner – took three days to address the nation on that subject. In contrast, and much to Limbaugh's ire, the president's remarks on the devastation in Haiti came just one day following the tragedy there. In the same program, Limbaugh suggested that Obama was happy for the quake in Haiti, as his administration will "use this to burnish their, shall we say, credibility with the black community, in the ... the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It's made to order for them."

But Robertson, ever vigilent lest he lose the coveted foot-in-mouth award, chimed in:

"They were under the heel of the French ... and they got together and swore a pact with the devil. They said, 'We will serve you if you'll get us free from the French.' "

Evidently, a desire to throw off western oppression is inherently Satanic. (I guess this explains why over a million Vietnamese deserved to die several decades back in order to atone for their Satanic audacity of throwing off the French occupiers.)

It is reactions like Limbaugh's that remind of Gandhi's comment about Chistianity.
