Limbaugh: Haiti earthquake "made to order" for Obama

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

If you haven't already listened to this clip from Limbaugh's program yesterday, you ought to. Media Matters highlighted it because Limbaugh stressed to listeners that the Obama administration would use the Haitian relief effort to "burnish" its credibility with the "light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country."

But I was also struck by Limbaugh's comment near the end of the clip, as the clearly annoyed host was bemoaning the Western Hemisphere catastrophe, simply because it might somehow help Obama politically. Or as the exasperated Limbaugh put it, the epic Haiti earthquake was "made to order" for Obama.


Talk about taking Obama Derangement Syndrome to previously unknown depths. But of course, the GOP Noise Machine won't say boo about this because being a conservative pundit in America today means having to pretend Rush Limbaugh doesn't shovel hate for a living.
