Speaking of mr. limbaugh...here is an actual word for word transcript from one of his radio talk shows back in 1988...and no, this is not a joke or fraud. I recorded it off Dallas, WBAP 820 AM Talk/News radio.

limbaugh:

"And now the liberals want to stop President Reagan from selling chemical warfare agents and military equipment to Saddam Hussein, and why? Because Saddam 'allegedly' gassed a few Kurds in his own country.

"Mark my words. All of this talk of Saddam Hussein being a 'war criminal' or 'committing crimes against humanity' is the same old thing. LIBERAL HATE SPEECH! And speaking of poison gas . . . I SAY WE ROUND UP ALL THE DRUG ADDICTS AND GAS THEM."

Rush Limbaugh, Nov. 3, 1988


Oh how time and U S politics change. Its a real GAS!

I'm sure that you've heard of the phrase: "A lie, told often enough, somehow becomes the truth." Well, this is a classic example of how that happens. Right before our very eyes. (a different liberal blogger opines that no one can disprove that Limbaugh said it!)

Note that part of Mr. Pearson's comment:

"here is an actual word for word transcript from one of his radio talk shows back in 1988...and no, this is not a joke or fraud. I recorded it off Dallas, WBAP 820 AM Talk/News radio."

Uh huh.

Sure you did Mr. Pearson.

Claim: Talk show host Rush Limbaugh's 3 November 1988 broadcast included a statement approving the selling of chemical warfare agents to Saddam Hussein and the gassing of drug addicts.

Status: False.

Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2004]

And now the liberals want to stop President Reagan from selling chemical warfare agents and military equipment to Saddam Hussein and why? Because Saddam "allegedly" gassed a few Kurds in his own country. Mark my words. All of this talk of Saddam Hussein being a "war criminal" or "committing crimes against humanity" is the same old thing. Liberal hate speech! And speaking of poison gas... I say we round up all the drug addicts and gas them too!

Rush Limbaugh, November 3, 1988

Origins: A time-honored method of discrediting one's political opponents is to put words in their mouths — to make it appear they once said something which now paints them as foolish, hypocritical, or just plain wrong. In that vein comes the current item, a quote that supposedly doubly tags conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh as a hypocrite: first for justifying the sale of chemical warfare agents (i.e., "weapons of mass destruction") to Saddam Hussein and then supporting the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq to rid that country of such weapons, and second for suggesting that drug addicts should be dealt with harshly and then admitting his own addiction to prescription pain medication.

Whatever opinions Mr. Limbaugh may have expressed on his radio program over the years regarding arms sales to Saddam Hussein and the social issue of drug addiction, the item cited at the head of this page is not a genuine transcript of something broadcast on his show on 3 November 1988. It's actually a lampooning taken from the comic strip The Boondocks.

Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder often employs the device of running "Classic Boondocks" strips, which are supposedly past examples of his work dug out of the archives and offered up to his audience once again. The gimmick is that "Classic Boondocks" aren't really older versions of Boondocks strips being run for a second time — they're freshly-created material backdated and presented as strips from years gone by as a method of drawing attention to and commenting upon current political issues. Thus the 1 August 2004 version of the strip purports to be a re-run of a strip "originally printed November 3, 1988" in which the Huey character listens to a radio broadcast by "some guy named Rush Limbaugh," who speaks the words quoted at the head of this page.

Although the political intent of the 1 August 2004 Boondocks strip was clear, the context that it was not really a repeat of a strip from 3 November 1988 and did not report something Rush Limbaugh actually said over the airwaves on that date went missing in action, and the text of the strip has since been passed around the Internet as if it were a genuine transcript of a portion of a 1988 Rush Limbaugh broadcast.

UPDATE on August 29, 2006:

It seems that Tom has created a new blog for himself this month ("On Blogger Since August 2006") but has as of yet to use it at this date:
