Rush Limbaugh doesn't shock anymore. In fact, he's just predictable. If he hasn't insulted at least one person a day, and one important person a week, then he's not being himself. So why even report that he's insulting Elizabeth Warren? Because the more people see what kind of jerk this man is, the higher the chances are that less people will swallow what he tries to vomit down the throats of his listeners and readers.
Rush Limbaugh called Elizabeth Warren a "parasite" and "an arrogant, condescending, conceited snob who has profound resentment" after some things she said went viral on YouTube and was mentioned on the Drudge Report. However, the thing Elizabeth Warren said aren't false. It just seems that they are the facts that people don't like to admit:
There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody! You built a factory out there? Good for you! But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You built a factory, and it turned into something terrific or a great idea: God bless! Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.
Rush Limbaugh seems to have that same selfish fat cat attitude that people on the right try to pin on democrats and liberals. It's a "fat cat" who thinks he (or she) is entitled to every single bit of cash that trickles inward. They do not feel that it is necessary to pay taxes for the things essential to what gave them the opportunities to make the money they made. Public education, transportation, even the US Postal Service and its uses in business helped in creating these American business owners and workers. These people complain when taxes go up with the costs of living and to pay for the war that they supported when Bush waged it. This isn't a class war waged by the democrats. If anything it's a class war being waged by those on the far right, and it began when the richest Americans got tax cuts at the same time as a couple of wars needed funding. It continued when they opposed healthcare that could help so many underpaid and jobless Americans. This shouldn't be a class war, but if it is, it's certainly not "the left" causing it; they're only trying to remedy it.
