The LA Times contributor Andrew Klavan challenged the Liberal Left to listen to Rush’s show before bashing him. This sounds like good advice, especially for those of us on the Path. Attachment to either Mr. Limbaugh’s opinions or the opinions that are in opposition to Mr. Limbaugh will certainly veil awakening from our sight. Right?
Mr. Klavan argues that he has “never heard the man [Limbaugh] utter a single racist, hateful or stupid word!” and therefore, lefty Rush bashers should just listen more deeply to the content in order to find the edifying truth in his daily verbal offerings.
Jason Linkins, it looks like, decided to take Mr. Klavan at his word and came up with the following:
Limbaugh went waaaaaay over the top in insulting Gordon Brown with a mental image that one must work at to un-think about, warning that if the British Prime Minister keeps “slobbering” over President Barack Obama, he’ll “come down with anal poisoning and may die from it.”
I’m not really sure where to go with this as a practitioner of stillness. What kind of clinging leads to this kind of imagery? Anal poisoning? What would Freud do with this? What would Buddha do? Jesus? Would they be laughing as hard as I am right now?
May all beings be healthy, happy, and may their undercarriages be free from any and all toxins.
