Rush Limbaugh on Family Guy
It's good to see the icons of the far left and far right occasionally getting along just for the fun of it. When I heard Rush Limbaugh was playing himself in an episode of Family Guy I was enthralled. I though why oh why would the ultimate symbol of right wing America agree to go on a show run by Seth Macfarlane. Conservatives generally detest Family Guy which is strange considering the right are always complaining about political correctness yet dislike politically incorrect humour. Limbaugh answers that question pretty well himself in the clip below. Over the years I have become much more conservative than in my younger radical days but one area where I have remained as left wing as you can get is in the area of comedy. That is because there are no funny conservative comedians, not one. While I generally disagree with their serious message, I just can't get enough of Bill Hicks, Bill Maher, George Carlin, Rory Bremer, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, Family Guy, The Simpsons and anyone else who loves to poke fun at the political establishment. Enjoy the clip.
