Some Values

By way of Pandagon, I have learned that Rush Limbaugh has been invited to be one of the speakers at the 2009 Values Voters Summit, one of those get-togethers of right-wing cultural conservatives to complain about how liberals, feminists and atheists are undermining the country's moral foundation.

Personally, I find it rather interesting that such a gathering would seek to include a thrice divorced Viagra® fuelled tourist to the Dominican Republic to pontificate on matters of traditional family values. Of course, what matters to these people is not Rush's morals, or lack thereof, but of his ability to promote their ideological agenda. After all, everyone has values. But it is these right wing conservatives who seek to make matters of morality their personal monopoly.

Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot. These folks who talk about "values" act like they have the monopoly on morality, when in fact that is just an idea of which few of them even live by themselves. They can't even live up to their own standards, yet judge everyone else. Hypocrites.

I think both Pres. Obama and Rush Limbaugh would like to establish their morals as norms. I'm okay with that. I just don't want a system where we're required to be perfect before we can discuss what is right and wrong for society.
