Rush Limbaugh supports civil war

He's "fed up" with the Middle East
Let's file this under compassionate conservative fatigue:
LIMBAUGH: All right, well, let's just have them [the possibility of three civil wars in the Middle East]. Let's just have the civil wars and let the crumbs crumble and the cookie crumble where -- because I'm fed up with this...
...I mean, everybody comes to us: "You got to fix this and you got to fix that." So we go and try to fix it, and our own people, Democrats and the left in our country do their best to sabotage our efforts, and then we get blamed for trying to clean up the messes that these people start...
Hmm, I love the idea that the American Left trying to sabotage the resounding policy failures is a bad thing. Of course, that's not really what Rushbo's trying to say; he's trying to say that if the Left just shut their stinking traps and supported the team for which he cheerleads, they might be able to score a touchdown -- but they'll never find their way to the goalposts with all that distracting booing! So he's just giving up.
Fine, just blow the place up.
"Wait, wait -- let me get my ball first!"
Just let these natural forces take place over there instead of trying to stop them, instead of trying to use -- I just -- sometimes natural force is going to happen. You're going to have to let it take place. You can spend all the time you like with diplomacy, and you can spend all the time you want massaging these things with diplomatic -- you're just -- you're just delaying the inevitable.
Wow, get me a buttload of Oxycontin stat so I, too, can medicate myself into believing that Bush is a great statesman and what we've been doing in the Middle East for the past three years is diplomatic massage.
