Today marks one year since Robin Williams left us, leaving the planet a much more dull and unfunny place. It’s hard to believe it has been one whole year without that prolific funnyman, thoughtful analyst, and feverish mind. As a comedian who also suffers from major depression, the loss of Robin felt all too real and hit close to home. I’m sure many creative people could attest to feeling that way about Robin taking his own life in August of last year.
But if there’s anyone so vile and completely unencumbered by emotion and thought (and it’s the Donald this time), it’s Rush Limbaugh–America’s Most Impotent Man.
Never missing an opportunity to politicize everything to fatten his wallet–and waistband–the blob of buffoonery made a discursive speech in which he had the gall to connect Williams’ suicide to having a leftist point of view.
“He had it all but he had nothing. Made everybody else laugh but was miserable inside,” Limbaugh said. “I mean, it fits a certain picture or a certain image that the left has. Talk about low expectations and general unhappiness and so forth. “He could never get over the guilt that they died [Christopher Reeve, John Belushi, and Andy Kaufman] and he didn’t,” Limbaugh said. “Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists when judging the country.” (Samuel-Warde.com)
–Enter Lewis Black
Ever since the loss of comedy giant and philosopher George Carlin, high-brow and aggressive comedy has been looking for someone to carry the torch. Lewis Black comes as close as it gets to George Carlin and carrying his silly but contemptuous disdain of human nature. Lewis is the nicest guy in the world, however, and his anger is justly used when it needs to be. In this case, Limbaugh was on the receiving end of a full-blown Lewis Black apoplectic smack down. Once you get into one those, there’s not getting out.
Naturally the bloated drug addict walked back his earlier comments after getting so thoroughly spanked by Lewis Black. stating that he doesn’t know the reasons for Williams’ suicide and accused the media of misconstruing his words.
