Limbaugh Claims the Senate Election in Minnesota was Stolen Like in Iran

Rush Limbaugh reacted to the news the news that Al Franken has been certified the winner of the Minnesota Senate race by the state Supreme Court by comparing the Minnesota recount to the recount in the Iranian presidential election. He claims this election was stolen from Coleman. I believe that Limbaugh loves the GOP more than he loves America.

Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:

Limbaugh said, “Look at this from Iran’s press run television, state run media in Iran. Ahmadinejad gains votes in recount, just like in our country. It happened just like in our country. Norm Coleman wins in Minnesota in a recount, so they keep having recounts, and Al Franken wins, so they have the recount in Iran and shazam Ahmadinejad gained votes.”

Of course, Rush’s version isn’t exactly how it happened. Franken won the original recount, and has continued to win recounts as Norm Coleman, likely at the request of the national GOP, has continued to drag this process out. Franken will be the 60th Democratic senator, so the GOP is trying to block seating him for as long as possible.

Can you believe the patriotism of Rush Limbaugh? He is now comparing the democratic process of the United States of America to a rigged election in Iran. The opposition in Iran would love to have had the opportunities that Norm Coleman has had.

Even though it has taken months, the Coleman/Franken contest is an example of democracy in action. I never used to believe the stuff about Limbaugh hating America, but comments like this really make me wonder if he does love the GOP more that his own country.

  1. It’s not a question of Rushbo loving the Repubs more than “his country.” He’s only concerned with throwing more red meat to his listeners so that his ratings remain high — thereby justifying his huge salary.

  2. Rush Limp-ball is the greatest thing to happen to the Democratic Party since Herbert Hoover. As long as he keeps spewing out his hate and bigotry, we will keep gaining supporters.

  4. The GOP tent is getting so small, pretty soon they can purchase a small pup tent to fill in their followers.

  5. You’ve obviously never listened to him or you wouldn’t be “spewing” the same tired old liberal biased media crap about him being hateful and racist. Neither is remotely true, and it’s plain to see or hear for those with the ability to think for themselves rather than be led around by the nose with the rest of the sheeple.

  6. The ability to think for themselves rather than be led around by the nose??? Is that why Rush fans are called “ditto heads?”

  7. rush limbaugh once told a black listener to take the bone out of his nose because he disagreed with him. he once called cynthia mckinney a hoe and made an issue out of colin powell voting his conciousness by claiming he voted for obama only because he is black.ditto head sheeple ,you are obe and the same

  8. I can only assume, by the tone of your comments, that you actually believe this crap! What about the Supreme Court anointing Bush our King without a complete recount? Why didn’t the Supreme Court say “enough is enough” months ago in the Coleman recount? Sounds to me like our Supreme Court was more like Iran’s Supreme Rulers in the case of Bush/Gore than in this case. Thanks for boosting the Democratic Party. I keep hearing more and more “former” Republicans saying that their party is just a hangout for radicals. I’m beginning to believe them.

  9. I can only assume that you know of a third viable political party. With staunch Republicans running from their party in droves, all that is left are ridiculous fools who support the likes of Sarah Palin. The Republicans can never win another election until they get their radicals under control and put forth a new plan to reorganize our government and economy. So far, all they can do is say that the Democrats are wrong, all the while ignoring the fact that this all fell apart on their watch.

  10. Rush Limbaugh is the worst thing to happen to America I have seen in my lifetime. Highly bigoted and intolerant. Not the first time he blasted a church of different religions to his own.

  11. In my country we don’t know anything about Rush Limbaugh does, but It is a great way of providing info and is really very interesting article.
