Rush Limbaugh is saying that U.S. media types are really content right about now. “I swear, I’ve never seen them or heard them so happy. I think this is the happiest they have been in recorded history. Certainly in the modern era,” said Limbaugh on his show today.

“There is is no — not even the pretense in the media anymore of being dispassionate or objective” toward President Obama, Limbaugh says. Proof? Limbaugh ran an audio medley of various prominent media figures — big-time ones, too — saying how exciting and amazing were the events of the inauguration. Listen to the mash-up: If it doesn’t say that media types are shills for Obama, then it surely says that media types are shills for a parade.
