Racist, Doped Up On Oxy, And Ignorant Of History Is No Way To Go Through Life, Son.
LIMBAUGH: We're not having much luck here, folks. We've been doing exhaustive research in the last four minutes. We're trying to find out who owned and who sold Sheila Jackson Lee and what they got for her. She just said on the floor of the House of Representatives mere moments ago this morning, and she was standing there as a freed slave because this Congress came together. I didn't think they were coming together at all, but she talked about the Congress during Lincoln. But anyway, she's a freed slave. Somebody had to own her, and I -- we don't know who.
I want to challenge this body to be the kind of Lincolnesque attitude, as yesterday was the official birthday of President Lincoln, February 12. And although it was a tragic time in our history, I can assure you that it showed the greatest promise of America when people could come together and do something great. I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together. Are we going to be able to do it today to free America?
It would be clear to most students of history that she was referring to Congress as an entity (as opposed to the 113th assembly) that at one point came together in the wake of the CIvil War and passed the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery--thanks in some part to Lincoln before he was assassinated. Then, you know she mused about whether the current legislature might do something as meaningful. I'm not entirely certain that Limbaugh knows this, but who the fuck cares? He's objectively just a racist asshole.
