There’s little to no leftie fodder to mock on his radio show, according to Rush. Just “two shows or three shows” on MSNBC.

Here’s what the conservative radio blowhard had to say on November 9, 2011, in a rant about how America will continue to decline unless the GOP establishment embraces conservative ideology.

Transcript taken from his own website:

If it weren’t for MSNBC we wouldn’t have any liberal sound bites. ¬†I’ve told Cookie I’m sick of it, ban MSNBC, and we can’t, ‘cause there’s no other place to get liberal sound bites. ¬†There isn’t any other place. ¬†I mean CNN is just insane over there. ¬†They emphasize their hosts, they have guests, but just roll tape on ‘em and it’s so boring. It’s not worth putting anything from CNN on the air.

If it weren’t for MSNBC there wouldn’t be any liberal sound bites. ¬†Now, that has to mean something. ¬†That has to mean that they’re rare, that they’re not everywhere. ¬†They may be everywhere in print, but, you know, left-wingers on the radio, genuine cuckoo’s nest. ¬†You wouldn’t even want to go there. ¬†I wouldn’t play that stuff. ¬†MSNBC’s it, and it’s two shows or three shows. ¬†It’s it is morning thing with Scarborough, it’s the Larry O’Donnell show at night, and maybe occasionally something from Reverend Sharpton. (interruption) Well, yeah, sometimes Sergeant Schultz. ¬†Sergeant Schultz is out there walking amongst abandoned railroad cars looking for the future of America. I know there’s Al Gore’s channel, but that’s nothing worth highlighting. It really says something. MSNBC is the only place in the media to get these liberals.

There it is. He done let the cat out of the bag.

Curiously he left Rachel Maddow out of these comments, but maybe not so curiously because she’s generally so circumspect and fact-based in the arguments she makes on air as to be impervious to attacks from Limbaugh on a regular basis.

Ed Schultz, Rev. Al Sharpton and Lawrence O’Donnell, with their more bombastic (and yes, male) styles I can see providing easy targets for Limbaugh (a service he provides for them, too, of course) but I think his instincts to perhaps stay away from commenting too much on Maddow is a smart one on his part.
