In RE: Rep. Slaughter’s comments at the health care summit:
Wealthy, overfed Rush Limbaugh said:
“If you don’t have any teeth, so what? What’s applesauce for?”
And wealthy, overfed Glenn Beck said:
“I’ve read the Constitution … I didn’t see that you had a right to teeth”
Now I know from back in the old days when I was forced to listen to Rush Limbaugh at work that the Dirigible of Darvocet himself has said he pays cash at the dentist’s just like he does at the doctor’s and that’s the way the system should be for everyone. This latest is just more typical rightwing mean-spiritedness toward the poor who, in their view, deserve to be uncomfortable and humiliated because they can’t afford the dental care wingnuts can afford — that is, if wingnuts want it; some, apparently, do not. Here’s two more Cheeto-teethed, Mountain Dew-mouthed, um, mouthbreathers yukking it up over Slaughter’s testimony:
LS: I even had one constituent, you will not believe this, and I know you won’t, but it’s true. Her sister died, this poor woman had no dentures. She wore her dead sister’s teeth.
[Hugh Hewitt]: Mark Steyn…(laughing)
[Mark Steyn]: (laughing) That’s good. That’s good for the environment, isn’t it?
MS: I’m in favor of that. If we can’t at least, if we can’t reduce our carbon footprint, at least we should be able to reduce our mastication mouth print by recycling dentures. I mean, this gets to the heart of why this is…is second-hand dentures, which I believe was the fourth chorus of that Barbra Streisand song, for those with long memories, but is second-hand dentures a huge problem in the United States? What are the number of people going around? There’s 300 million people here. Are 20 million going around with second-hand dentures? Are 5 million going around with second-hand dentures? The idea that you need comprehensive national health care for, to solve this particular lady’s second-hand denture crisis, I think is…
HH: But Mark, we’ve only got 15 seconds. It happened again and again. When the Democrats talked, you just looked the screen and said, “oh my God, they’re running the country.”
HH: Oh my God, they’re running…Mark Steyn, always a pleasure, www.steynonline.com. Second-hand dentures, the chopper stopper, America.
Yeah, bwahahaha. Here’s a pic of Hugh Hewtit, undoctored:
Buy some fuckin toothpaste, Hugh. You can afford it.
