Rush Limbaugh is at it ... again. The talk show host, well, .. host is a too expensive word for an overweight old man with callus on his tongue from too much trash talking.
Over time his consistent abhorrent behavior and exaggerations into "la la land" finally come to a screeching halt. And screeching it is with many advertisers fleeing the scene. His word choices like "slut" and "prostitute" regarding Sandra Fluke is not just rude and a false claim, he also shows himself to be a pervert as he loudly asks her to send her sex videos to him. Thank you kindly Rush and the beauty is ... I did not call you that, you did that yourself.
I saw his handwriting in 2007 or so when he was arrested with drugs in his possession under his doctor's name. His character traits were revealed in his police statement that included his handwriting as well as his signature. Let's have a look:
People that write vertical and with block letters write much slower. They do that so they have time to think. Even his speech pattern has many pauses in between words.
Many letters have structures that are disconnected where they should be connected. This is called "segmentation" and an indication of "weak social boundaries". Certainly true in his case.
In the bottom signature we see an over inflated first capital letter R which suggest a "healthy" or an "overinflated self esteem". Since his "small i's " are relatively small, this suggest his self esteem is below average and the R is a compensatory technique to make himself feel better about himself. And yes, any exaggeration in behavior is a sign of the opposite.
The "X formation" in his signature implies he is confrontational and embraces conflict. He has numerous such formations. Such signs can be found in Kimon Iannetta's book "Danger between the lines".
The A's have strokes that go well below the baseline where they don't belong which means that he goes on where others would stop. The baseline's nickname is "the line of society" and Rush certainly exaggerates and constantly oversteps social boundaries.
(Remember my blog about Dominique Strauss Kahn?)
People that write in such a manner it is not legible (the "told this" sample and the second signature) lack clarity in communication and do that deliberately. They don't want to reveal their hidden agenda. Note his second signature that is utterly illegible and implies "secrecy" and "privacy". This is not in line with taking responsibility.
Rush, now "Limbo", is back tracking. Finally. He is has been, was and will be rude and irrelevant with his constant exaggeration and lies. His sponsors certainly think so.
The joke is not on Rush. He is controversial so he is heard and that is what he gets paid for. The joke is on his listeners who actually believe all his rhetoric and that is in fact the sad part.
