Today, Rush Limbaugh lampooned a tweet from CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta celebrating the reopening of the (partially) shutdown government. Once again, it was Rush Revere riding in to the rescue of conservatives feeling beaten down over the latest battle with Big Government. So for those in need of a pick-me-up, here are Rush's remarks in full:
I look around, and I find all kinds of things to laugh at in this. For example, Jim Acosta, CNN. He went to work today, and he was so excited!
He was so excited that the government's not shut down anymore. He was so excited. Here's what he tweeted, and I'm not making this up. This is word-for-word, is a verbatim quote for a CNN info guy. This is Jim Acosta. He's a senior White House correspondent.
"Hearing the roar of the federal government coming to life. Our WH crew tells us NPS employees are back w[ith] their leaf blowers."
Aw. Be still my beating heart! All is right with the world.
A CNN info guy is rejuvenated, life is worth living again because the federal government has come back to life, as typified by leaf blowers being used by the National Park Service. Right. They're probably aiming them at World War II vets as they try now to get into the World War II Memorial. They probably turn off the leaf blowers when the illegal aliens show up to protest the World War II vets.
Can you imagine, folks? This guy's dead serious. Can you imagine that kind of life?
