I have this crazy old dude who lives down the block from me that did way too many drugs in the 60s and is now paying for it. Everytime I see him, he launches into this monologue about the time he saw the Castros, Pope John Paul II, the Kennedy’s, Barack Obama and Josef Stalin having a secret meeting at the baseball field in town. If I wasn’t afraid he was going to try and bite my dick off, I’d definitely stick around and hear how the story ends. But I’m pretty afraid the dude is going to bite my dick off. The question I always struggle with, however, is whether this guy was hallucinating/on drugs like 30 years ago when he saw this mirage and still believes it’s true, or is just hallucinating because of drugs now and has no idea what even goes on in his own mind.
Regardless of the answer, that’s pretty much the exact same conundrum I come up against when dealing with Rush Limbaugh. Take this fire take Rush had about how he doesn’t understand how people can still believe in evolution when, clearly, Harambe has more than proved its inaccuracy.
