What Happens When You Tie Half Your Brain Behind Your Back?

Now we know what can happen when Rush Limbaugh ties half his brain behind his back...

...he gets co-oped by an organization that stands for much of what he and his listeners stand against.

Rush Limbaugh recently did two radio spots for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), helping drive traffic to the organization's website and, presumably, donations to its coffers.

Limbaugh, who frequently boasts that he can beat liberals in a debate with half his brain tied behind his back, apparently overlooked the fact that HSUS is a radical animal rights group. Think People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, only they keep their clothes on.

Here are a few select quotes from HSUS leaders, past and present...
"Human beings aren't superior, we're just different..." - Dr. Michael W. Fox, former HSUS Scientific Director

"Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting. Our opponents say that hunting is a tradition. We say traditions can change." - Wayne Pacelle, HSUS CEO

"...In promoting the rights of animals, we are doing so in a world where animals do not have equal status... The human species... will never concede equality to animals and will, I predict, resist with increasing vehemence all attempts to endow them with such." - John A. Hoyt, former HSUS president

"...We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States... We will take it species by species... state by state." - Wayne Pacelle, HSUS CEO
Perhaps Limbaugh confused HSUS with local Humane Societies, which are completely independent entities and tend to be less political, providing shelters and spay and neutering programs.

Confusion can occur when oxygen to your brain is cut off for extended periods.

Just ask Colin Powell.
