Jack LaLanne died on January 23 at the age of 96. Rush Limbaugh - always eager and never missing a chance to remind us that he is a pompous, obese, venom spewing fool - had these words to say about the man who inspired millions to take better care of themselves:
All this gobbledygook about nutrition and exercise, I've always pooh-poohed it, and I've always laughed at it and the Center for Science in the Public Interest and all this healthy Nazi eating lifestyle, all that rotgut. Over the course of the years, the SUV is gonna kill us, that kind of stuff, it just offends my sensibilities, it's an insult to my intelligence, and it's always amused me. It doesn't surprise me because I know a lot of people are sheep, but it's always amused me. Jack LaLanne was a vegetarian, look what happened to him? He died. Jack LaLanne was a vegetarian exercise freak and look what happened to him. He passed away. It's amazing, isn't it?
When Jack LaLanne was Rush Limbaugh's age he swam the length of the Golden Gate Bridge -- under water -- while towing one thousand pounds. Oh. He was also handcuffed. He was a vegetarian who ate only organic, unprocessed foods. Limbaugh, on the other hand, is a bottom feeder who gorges himself on lies and hypocrisy.
We are the sum total of everything we put into our mouths. Unfortunately for old Rush we are also the sum total of everything that comes out of our mouths.
