RUSH AND OPRAH - AN UNHOLY MARRIAGE

Frankenstein and Bride- Is this marriage doomed to fail?

Rush Limbaugh and Oprah Winfrey are the two pleasantly plump, (see, I'm not fat shaming) over opinionated talk show hosts who defined an era. They are the ying and yang of political sexual hysteria. I respect and admire both Rush and Oprah and have greatly benefitted from both their opinion shows over the years, as I know we all have. But Oprah leans toward the manhating side of things and Rush leans toward misogyny.

Like a bad marriage, Oprah, the epitome of a Democrat, and Rush, Mr. Republican, have been yelling loud and long at each other, with increasing hysteria, for the last twenty-five years. We the public have unwittingly been caught in the middle of this shouting match. Isn't hysteria the result of unresolved sexual problems? Hum.

And here's the kicker. If you had to imagine that unholy marriage producing a talk show child, wouldn't that poor child be a lot like Ellen DeGeneres? How could those two produce anything but a person who seems uncomfortable with the trappings of either sex, but has a terrific sense of humor? And very surely with those two warring people for parents, their offspring would need a superb sense of humor just to survive. It's all makes perfect sense, in an American talk show way.

Trump has been the ideal antidote to both. The primaries were the Rush Republicans having their hissy fit and nervous breakdown. And what a bunch of pantywaist, preachy, chicken hawks they turned out to be, once Trump upset their apple cart. Has a country ever in the history of the world been presented with fourteen sadder creatures running for the highest office in the land?

The Democrats presidential candidate was a woman who seemed to be auditioning for the role of Zombie dictator in the Walking Dead series. Now, they are showing their hysterical true colors. Whipped into a frenzy, the MSM has morphed into the cartoon network, where Boris Badenov has stolen the election for Donald Duck. Next they'll be hunting Elmer Fudd dressed as a Nazi hacker in Argentina as the culprit who stole their imaginary votes.

Trump seems a person happily free of political sexual hysteria. He never uses science to frighten the uneducated, neither global warming nor evolution are boogie men he pops on the unsuspecting. His libido seems in harmony with his biology. And he doesn't care a fig leaf about anyone's sexuality, no matter what it is, as long as they get the job done. He's so friggin American, this guy. Brash, honest, unapologetic Mr. Can do.

What a relief to turn off the howling hysterics. Now I just want to live my life in peace and freedom and make up my own mind about things.
