This week’s winner of The Biggest Damned Lie is Rush Limbaugh. On Wednesday, he floated the idea that al-Qaeda “gave up” Osama bin Laden to the Navy SEALs so Pres. Obama could be reelected?
But it’s what he said earlier this week that teed him up for “the biggest damn liar.” Limbaugh stated that polls are conducted by people who what President Obama reelected and want an Obama agenda.
MR. MARTIN: His name has come up a few times already. You’ve got to hand it to blabbermouth himself, Rush Limbaugh. On Wednesday, he floated the idea that
al-Qaeda “gave up” Osama bin Laden to the Navy SEALs so Pres. Obama could be reelected?
MS. BERNARD: Oh, God.
MR. MARTIN: Dude, seriously?
MR. MARTIN: Seriously. But it’s what he said earlier this week that teed him up for “the biggest damn liar.”

MR. RUSH LIMBAUGH: I have never seen this intense an effort by the Democrat machine, including the pollsters – we know these polls are all conducted by people who want Obama reelected, who want the Obama agenda. The polls now are just being used as another tool of voter suppression. The polls are an attempt to ref- — not reflect public opinion, but to shape it – yours. They wanna depress the heck out of you!
[END OF VIDEO CLIP.]
MR. MARTIN: No sooner had Rush said that when, sure enough, another left-wing media outlet came out with a poll showing Pres. Obama up five points over Mitt Romney, 48-43, among likely voters. The name of that left-wing media outlet trying to suppress the vote of conservatives – according to Rush Limbaugh? Fox News. Yes, Fox News released their own poll.
I’ve never seen them called “left-wing media” or, as Sarah Palin says, the “lamestream media.”
MR. MARTIN: So, Rush, this week – and seemingly every week – you brought …
[… “THE BIGGEST DAMN LIE” BANNER AND FANFARE.]
MR. MARTIN: Elroy, seriously.
MR. SAILOR: All right. Fir- —
MR. MARTIN: The man just lies!
MR. MARTIN: Ju-u-ust lies!
MR. BELCHER: Then he attacked us pollsters!
MR. SAILOR: Some- —
MR. BELCHER: What – what –
MR. SAILOR: — sometimes –
MR. BELCHER: — is that?
MR. SAILOR: — sometimes you just can’t defend brothers, and I’m not –
MR. SAILOR: — going to defend him on that today.
MR. MADISON: Now – now, wait a minute.
MR. SAILOR: But –
MR. MADISON: You did not use the word “brother.”
MR. SAILOR: — hey, White brothers. Everybody – [crosstalk] –
MR. SAILOR: — is a brother. Whether you’re White, Black, red, yellow, brown –
MR. MADISON: Okay.
MR. SAILOR: — you’re my brother. That’s just how I – that’s how I get down.
MS. BERNARD: [Chuckles.]
MR. MADISON: Yeah.
MR. SAILOR: But, you know. And I get in trouble with my party, because I’m always promoting and pushing quotas. But we need some quotas on “The Biggest Damn Lie.”
MR. SAILOR: I mean this is the second time that I’ve been on the show, and you keep getting the Republicans.
MR. MARTIN: But here’s –
MR. SAILOR: Democrats don’t lie?
MR. MARTIN: — here’s the problem. The problem –
MR. SAILOR: [Chuckles.]
MR. MARTIN: — is a Democrat might have a small lie. Republicans got a huge lie, and it’s called “The Biggest Damn Lie”!
MR. MARTIN: So, my suggestion: go back where y’all have y’all party conferences and barbecues and say, “Can we stop lyin’ so Roland can stop callin’ us out?”
MR. MARTIN: Michelle, Cornell, Elroy –
MS. BERNARD: Thank you.
MR. MARTIN: — Joe, we appreciate it.
