Rush Limbaugh's Diet Plan

Rush has some advice for you eggheaded liberals out there: eat sh*t and you'll live longer and healthier:
I told you I was gonna have fun with this story: "Twinkie Diet Helps Nutrition Professor Lose 27 Pounds." I love stirring the conventional wisdom pot, as you know. And I love being right. Folks, it's a thrill. I have to tell you, you don't know what it's like to be right as often as I am, particularly when you're simply following instincts, when being right really doesn't have that much to do with formal education, just being street-wise smart, just having common sense, having the guts to say what you know to be true regardless what the reaction to it is gonna be and when it eventually is all proven like "I hope he fails," all this stuff.

What have I told you about diet and exercise? Exercise is irrelevant.... "How do you know all this?" One of the reasons I know what I know is that I know liberals, and I know liberals lie, and if Michelle Obama's gonna be out there ripping into "food desserts" and saying, "This is why people are fat," I know it's not true. "Rush, do you really believe that? It's that simple to you, liberals lie?" Yes, it is, folks. Once you learn that, once you come to grips with that, once you accept that, the rest is easy. Very, very simple. Now, my doctor has never told me to restrict any intake of salt, but if he did, I wouldn't. I'd just spend more time in the steam or the sauna sweating it out.
My emphasis.

Rrrrright. So, when I die of a heart attack at age 40, or a stroke from high triglycerides at age 43, can my widow sue the f**king pants off of Mr. Limbaugh?

'I told you so' my ass.

I am so unbelievably tired of Rush Limbaugh (and others like him) telling their listeners/followers/fans that stupidity is okay. Stupidity is cool. Being educated makes you a lying liberal.

'Hey look kids! You can play video games all day and eat junk food all day and not only will you be healthy, you can lose some extra pounds too!'

Ugh. It's almost as if he wants Americans to embrace stupidity. Being smart is no longer a valued attribute to people like Limbaugh.

Oh sure, some guy goes on a 'Convenience Store Diet' and loses some weight. There are also runners in near-perfect physical condition who drop dead from heart attacks. So what? So, sometimes sh*t just happens.

Just because one guy lost some weight eating nothing but Twinkies (and other junk food), does not mean that everyone will have the same results. I understand his point (that counting calories is the way to go), but surely the human body needs some kind of real nourishment.

To prove my point, I have a challenge for Rush (HA! as if he reads this blog)...

Rush Limbaugh. I propose that you LITERALLY put your money where your mouth is and eat nothing but Twinkies for six months. Hey, it's only one-half of a year! At the end of the challenge, if your triglycerides have not risen, if you weight has not risen, I will admit on this site that you are right. Oh, and since "exercise is irrelevant", you shouldn't do any of that either.

If I win this challenge, you must publicly admit that you are wrong. You must make a donation to the charity of my choosing and you must say on the air that you were "bested by a blogger".

The ball is in your corner Rush. Grab a Twinkie...
