Quote of the Day: Haiti

| Thu Jan. 14, 2010 12:29 PM PST

From Rush Limbaugh, reacting to the earthquake in Haiti that killed thousands, left millions homeless, wiped out hospitals and water distribution, and devastated the entire country:

I could sit here and be really cynical.  I'll hold off on the cynicism for a couple hours, I'll hold off on it.  I'm going to hold off on it, give the show's flow a chance to establish, 'cause it's going to be the Media Tweak of the Day.

....Yes, I think in the Haiti earthquake, ladies and gentlemen — in the words of Rahm Emanuel — we have another crisis simply too good to waste.  This will play right into Obama's hands. He's humanitarian, compassionate.  They'll use this to burnish their, shall we say, "credibility" with the black community — in the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country.  It's made-to-order for them.  That's why he couldn't wait to get out there, could not wait to get out there.

So I guess that's his Media Tweak of the Day. I wonder what it takes to get the conservative movement to disown this guy?
