Rush Limbaugh had a typically unique take on the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac during his Monday show, appearing to suggest that the Obama administration had tampered with the forecasts of the storm to hurt the Republicans.
The tropical storm is threatening to turn into a hurricane just as it hits New Orleans, bringing up grim memories of Hurricane Katrina and making the GOP worry about how its convention in Tampa will be affected. Monday's proceedings already had to be canceled.
To hear Limbaugh tell it, though, that was the point. "With none of this am I alleging conspiracy," he said on Monday. It sure sounded like he was alleging one, though.
He went on to note that the Hurricane Center that monitors such things is "the regime," as he put it. "It's the government. It's Obama."
Limbaugh said that he grew suspicious because he noticed that the forecast for Isaac had shifted dramatically away from Florida soon after the Republicans canceled the first day of the convention.
"What could be better for the Democrats than the Republicans to cancel a day of this?" he said. "...I'm alleging no conspiracy. I'm just telling you, folks, when you put this all together in this timeline, I'm telling you, it's unbelievable!"

Shut up. Just shut up. Never ever say another word on the radio as long as you live. And no Internet blogs either, no books or newspaper articles. Just get out of the media. Just shut the fuck up forever, Limbleurrgh.

Because forecasts NEVER change, right?

And by "typically unique take", we mean "said something blatantly offensive and moronic for the umpteenth time".
What say we set up an 'All-You-Can-Eat Greasy Cheeseburgers and Oxycontyn' fund for ol' Limbaugh here? With luck, he'll finally finish the process of clogging up his arteries and shuffling off this mortal coil.

Limbaugh again pulling the "I'm not saying what I'm clearly saying" stunt.

What is with all the people suddenly believing that the weather service is actually Obama's secret police?

Just because Obama is black doesn't mean he's Storm from the X-Men.

Because Obama is so powerful that he controls the weather.
Seriously, why does anyone anywhere give Limbaugh an ounce of credibility any more?

"I'm telling you, it's unbelievable!"
For once, I have to agree with him.

Oh My Dog!
Ah, old Rushie.
Crazy as usual I see.

I'm sorry, I just can't work up the effort to find this guy any more ridiculous.

Ah, so Obama really is a Lord of Change.
Everything went exactly as he planned it.

Because it happened to hit where the RNC was, and God would never allow God's Own Party to be hurt without Satanic interference, right?

Rushie still needs to trade in that Oxycontin for some Haldol, I see.

@1443793 Even if Obama is an avatar of the Daemon Lord of Change, TzeentcHimself, I'd still vote for him. Change you can beleive in indeed...

Obama and his god-damn Weather Dominator.

How fucking arrogant can you get?

"Rush Limbaugh had a typically unique take on the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac...."
So now the feeble babbling of a mentally deficient retard is a "typically unique take" and not the fanciful delusion of a drooling moron? Either that or it is the sniggering lunacy of a deliberate liar, because, as he cheekily admits, "I'm telling you, it's unbelievable!"

@Rabbit of Caerbannog:
Obama must be at least 13th level, if he's able to cast a control weather spell.

Actual footage of Obama using his weather controlling powers to break up the RNC:

This is so true! After all, President Obama is both the Messiah and the Anti-Christ. Stands to reason he'd have control over Storm's weather powers.
I've been hoping he'd declare himself King of Wakanda before 2013.
