He must be doin’ drugs again

Or maybe, just maybe, he and his buddy Karl Rove had lunch:

Karl:  “Johnny’s down in the polls.  The people who listen to your show will believe anything.  What have we got that we haven’t used yet?”

Rush:  “Kenny and Monica used this one, but I haven’t.  See, Obama’s not really black.”

Karl:  (laughing)  “That’s a stretch even for us.  Who’s gonna believe that crap?”

Rush:  (feigning astonishment)  “No!  It’s true!  He’s not black.  He’s (looks around conspiratorially … whispers) A-rab.”

Yeah, I bet it went pretty much that way.  Here’s Rush on his show yesterday.  (Thanks, Media Matters.)

These polls on how one-third of blue-collar white Democrats won’t vote for Obama because he’s black, and — but he’s not black. Do you know he has not one shred of African-American blood? He doesn’t have any African — that’s why when they asked whether he was authentic, whether he’s down for the struggle. He’s Arab. You know, he’s from Africa. He’s from Arab parts of Africa. He’s not — his father was — he’s not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American. I guess that’s splitting hairs, I don’t — it’s just all these little things, everything seems upside-down today in this country.

My favorite line is the last one:  “…eveything seems upside-down today in this country.”  Side splitting.  Because to Rush, if a black man (yeah, Rush, he’s black) is on the verge of running the country instead of shining his shoes, the whole world is just upside-down.  Lord.
