    Limbaugh on torture of Iraqis: U.S. guards were "having a good time," "blow[ing] some steam off"

    Hours before President George W. Bush announced plans to address the Arab world to condemn the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. military personnel at the Abu Ghraib prison, Rush Limbaugh justified the U.S. guards' mistreatment of the Iraqis, stating that they were just "having a good time," and that their actions served as an "emotional release."

    As reported by Wonkette.com, Limbaugh's comments can be found on his website. From the May 4 Rush Limbaugh Show, titled "It's Not About Us; This Is War!":

    CALLER: It was like a college fraternity prank that stacked up naked men --

    LIMBAUGH: Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You of heard of need to blow some steam off?

    The day before, on his May 3 show, Limbaugh observed that the American troops who mistreated Iraqi prisoners of war were "babes" and that the pictures of the alleged abuse were no worse than "anything you'd see Madonna, or Britney Spears do on stage."

    LIMBAUGH: And these American prisoners of war -- have you people noticed who the torturers are? Women! The babes! The babes are meting out the torture.

    LIMBAUGH: You know, if you look at -- if you, really, if you look at these pictures, I mean, I don't know if it's just me, but it looks just like anything you'd see Madonna, or Britney Spears do on stage. Maybe I'm -- yeah. And get an NEA grant for something like this. I mean, this is something that you can see on stage at Lincoln Center from an NEA grant, maybe on Sex in the City -- the movie. I mean, I don't -- it's just me.

    I can't believe he would say something like that. How anyone could possible try to justify this situation is beyond me. This is an appropriate way of emotional release? I wonder how Rush would feel if many of his adversaries "blew off some steam" and tortured him in a similar manner.

    WTF is wrong with people? Since when has it been "a good time" to torture another person! Rush is sadistic, distrubed and overall a reprehensiable slimemold.

    What? Maybe you expect him to agree with decent civilized human beings. He is like Howard Stern, he just says some bullshit so that people like you and me pay attention to him.
    He really needs to smoke some weed.

    That's shit. "Having a good time"?! So if I wanted to have a good time I could walk right up to our "president" and pee on him?

    Oh, no, I can't do that. He is far more superior than those dirty little Iraqis.

    (extreme usage of sarcasm there)

    "All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others." Unfortunately, this quote holds true to world affairs. Que lastimo.
