    is porch monkey a commonly used (and accepted) terminology to state that something is silly, idiotic or stupid?

    You are being ridiculously obtuse just by trying to draw parallels to the 2.

    You just misunderstood Rush. A lot of people do that, but that's caused by selective hearing. Unfortunately, it's a trait illustrated by both the Reps and Dems.

    So when Limbaugh said:

    I mean, these liberal activists are kooks. They are loony tunes. And I'm not going to apologize for it, I'm just quoting Emanuel. It's in the news. I think the news is that he's out there calling Obama's number one supporters effing retards. So now there's going to be a meeting. There's going to be a retard summit at the White House, much like the beer summit between Obama and Gates and that cop in Cambridge.
    What was Limbaugh referring to? It was a meeting between Emanuel and disability advocates. Do you get that? Do you get that unlike Emanuel who was calling part of the Democratic Base retards, Rush in that statement was calling those with mental disabilities, retards?

    You don't get sarcastic hyperbole.... If you listen to him he will often demonstrated hypocrisy by utilizing the terms that are in question in the news to a sarcastic extreme.

    "our politically correct society is acting like some giant insult has taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards"

    "So now there is going to be a meeting, there is going to be a retard summit at the white house"

    Those Limbaugh statements were quoting Emanuel?

    Regardless, just as with Rahnm I dont think it is a big deal he said what he said, what is a big deal is dismissing his statements while harping on similar from another.

    This whole issue of who is justified in their usage of the term retard is much ado about nothing, the insult of it all is the opportunistic use of a mentally handicapped child for selective indignation and political shots.

    No, you're putting words into what Rush said. He's merely equating Obama's supporters to being retarded. Perhaps, you are expressing your dismay at using an analogy to retarded people, but they will not complain. After all, they are retarded.
