Rush Limbaugh, the fat mouth piece of the Republican Party has challenged President Obama to a debate. Of course, Limbaugh knows this is a safe challenge – because it will never happen. Rush is like that – safe. Limbaugh has captured an audience of angry malcontents, people who are looking for some one to blame for their miserable lives. Limbaugh feeds their anger, thus keeping them in the fenced yard. If Limbaugh wants to really debate someone, why not challenge Michael Moore.
Michael Moore is to the left what Limbaugh is to the right – except that Moore is actually thoughtful and has a message. Moore delivers his message in an art form called video documentaries. As such, his work is scripted – meaning that he has actually thought about what it is he wants to say. Limbaugh proudly rides the airways of ranting conservative talk radio – his message is usually nothing more than a rant designed to foster further malcontent.
So here is thefiresidepost.com challenge to Rush Limbaugh – Challenge Michael Moore to a debate. Have you the courage to actually sit down with someone of intellect and debate the variety of issues you so deftly rant about?
Moore is well versed on health care, on 911, on terrorism, on Guantanamo, on torture, and on civil liberties. This writer might actually tune in to Limbaugh – if only he had the courage to really debate Moore, a representative on the other side of the aisle.
This could be as big an event as WWE Wrestling – or whatever they call it. TV networks could make a fortune – or perhaps even a cable news network. This would be Ali / Frazier IV. Rush could promote the event on his program and get even higher ratings – which is what he is all about.
Nothing would be resolved – but it would be great theater. That fits both Moore and LImbaugh.
So Rush, what do you say? Care to have a debate?
