Rush Limbaugh has a crush on Chris Kluwe
|Rush is feeling slightly bromantic about Kluwe.|
-- Chris Kluwe to Emmett Burns: Gay marriage "won't magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster"
-- Chris Kluwe says politician is "literally an asshole" for anti-gay marriage stance
-- Chris Kluwe coins "turdsloth" while defending Crossfit on Gawker
Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh devoted a few minutes of his radio show to the Emmett Burns-Chris Kluwe beef.
Think Rush ripped Kluwe a new one for being a staunch gay marriage advocate? Not quite. In fact, Rush seems to have taken a bit of a shining to the Vikings' outspoken, profane punter.
I was having a good day and didn't want to spoil it, so I didn't actually listen to Rush's show. But fortunately for folks like me, a transcript of each and every precious word Rush utters is promptly posted to his website, so we can fill you in on the details without putting our ears and mood at risk.
Rush characterized Kluwe's Deadspin address to Burns as "profane," "funny," and "humorous."
"Everybody loves [the letter] because it excoriates Emmett Burns as being an absolute toad and an idiot... The guy's [i.e., Kluwe] got a way with words," Rush said.
Sounds like a budding bromance, doesn't it? (A full transcript of Limbaugh's Burns-Kluwe remarks can be read on page two.)
Over the weekend, Burns actually backtracked from his demand that Baltimore Ravens ownership silence linebacker and outspoken gay marriage advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo.
"Upon reflection, [Ayanbadejo] has his First Amendment rights," Burns told The Baltimore Sun. "And I have my First Amendment rights. ... Each of us has the right to speak our opinions. The football player and I have a right to speak our minds."
That's true, Emmett, but only one of the two of you has the ability to speak out without sounding like a total turdsloth.
