Rush Limbaugh Reads My Blog On Radio, Makes Mrs. Other McCain Angry

Posted on | December 15, 2010 | 19 Comments

OK, I’ll get around to why my wife is angry later. First, I gotta brag on making it into Rush’s “Stack of Stuff” :

This from the American Spectator blog from a couple days ago: “For decades, Americans have been lectured that there is exactly one standard by which sexual activity can be judged: Were the participants ‘consenting adults?’ Now comes the news that Columbia University political science professor David Epstein, 46, has been arrested and charged with having a three-year-long sexual affair — with his own daughter. The daughter, now 24, was an adult when this incestuous relationship (allegedly) began in 2006 and, while incest remains illegal in New York State, some commenter’s at the Columbia University student newspaper Web site are mystified as to why it’s illegal: ‘Wait, why is consensual incest a crime? It might not be appealing to everyone, but if they’re adults and they consent, who cares what they do?'” This is a typical comment from a student on the site.
“Readers might suppose that arguments involving phrases like ‘thou shalt not’ and words like ‘abomination’ are sternly frowned on at Columbia University, so that the faculty would have a hard time answering such a question from their students. Likewise, readers will scarcely be surprised to learn that Professor Epstein is an ardent admirer of President Obama and a vocal critic of Sarah Palin.” He has had an incestuous relationship with his own daughter. The students say it’s no big deal, they both agreed, it’s a consensual relationship. This guy is an admirer of Bam and doesn’t like Palin, behaves this way. You used to have some success using incest as a counter point to liberals who insisted that limiting marriage to a man and a woman was an unconstitutional violation of the equal-protection clause. If the student newspaper is gonna jump straight for defending incest, then we got a problem. If that’s in any way representative of that generation at large or hopefully it will be confined to the Columbia student body. But bestiality I guess would be next because who cares the horse didn’t consent? Well, I know we can’t tell people what to do with their own bodies and we can’t call it incest ’cause that’s a label and that is too limiting. Labels are too limiting.
Yeah, this is a major, major problem. It’s about freedom, total free, do what you want to do, as long as both people are involved in it and consent to it. Of course, does a daughter consent or does she feel pressured into it? I’m just asking. Well, I’m not trying to delve into the sickness of either one of them. I’m trying to ask legitimate questions that the American left would pose here. Have we not known things were headed and tracking in this direction morally? Have we not known this for years? All of the excuses, it’s not for you to judge. What two people want to do with their own bodies and lives is their business, except when it’s smoking, except when it’s eating, except when it’s things liberals don’t like. I don’t know if Woody Allen’s weighed in or not but he could be the poster child for it. He certainly at one time was the poster child for Democrat Party social policy.

So mega-dittos, Rush. Thanks for reading The American Spectator. Now let me explain why Mrs. Other McCain is mad at you.

To quote my wife: “He reads your stuff, but he never says your name! He’s been doing this ever since you came to Washington! He’s a big pussy-face — and you can tell him I said so!”

Well, that’s my wife, Rush. I’ve tried to explain to her that it’s most likely the “McCain” part that causes this problem. Even if you understand that I hate and detest everything John McCain represents, such is the toxic damage he’s done to the name, if you were to read my byline on the radio, you’d have to take two minutes to disambiguate me from my disgraceful cousin. And that wouldn’t be good radio, would it?

Anyway, thanks again.
