This evening, the Family Guy, a cartoon series that airs on Fox, had a pretty funny episode that starred Rush Limbaugh, the famous radio talk show icon. The show throughout poked fun at liberals especially for forming opinions without any basis in fact.

The show begins with Brian the dog, who is liberal, finding out that Rush was going to be in town for a book signing. He decides to storm the book store to confront Limbaugh. But when he meets Rush, he is given a book so that he can make up his own mind after reading it. On the way home, Brian is confronted by a ‘multiracial tv gang including white guys’ who proceed to beat him up, ‘but not because of his color, cause that doesn’t matter to us.’ Rush intervenes and single-handedly defeats the gang.

Because Limbaugh saved him, Brian reads the book, and to his amazement, finds the book incredibly good. He decides that Rush ‘was right all along; conservative Republicanism is the answer.’ The next morning at breakfast, Brian tries to convince the rest of the family that the book ‘makes an excellent case for personal accountability, fiscal responsibility, and steak eatership.’ He explains that the logic in the book has convinced him to change his ideology.

Brian then meets with Rush again and thanks him for opening his eyes. Limbaugh, in a pretty self-deprecating scene, then tells Brian that a way to show his gratitude would be to say ‘Thank you, Rush, for doing my thinking for me because I lack the ability to think critically and independently.’ Rush then takes Brian to RNC Headquarters.

Limbaugh introduces the dog to President George W. Bush, who is portrayed as a childlike gnome. Rush gives him a lollipop and he goes away. The duo then meets with John McCain. McCain relates a tale of how he and Limbaugh went hunting for a mummy. McCain used a pig as bait to catch the mummy, since no Democrat can resist pork. When they caught the mummy, and unraveled its cloths, it turned out to be Barney Frank.

Rush then goes to the Griffins’ home for dinner, he gets into an argument with Lois about government spending, religion, abortion and global warning. Rush and Brian then sing a song called ‘Republican Town’ (here is a link for the song).

Brian moves in with Rush. The dog takes everything not made in America out of Limbaugh’s home, making it fall apart. The duo then go to the radio station for Limbaugh’s program. Brian tries to interject comments, then two get into a fight about whether Nancy Pelosi’s crack habit should be revealed to the general public, Brian calls Rush a softie, and leaves to confront Pelosi himself.

When the dog gets to her office, he tries to waterboard her, but security forces intervene and he is incarcerated. Rush bails him out and returns him to the Griffin’s household since Brian down deep is not really a conservative since he does not believe children should be executed and he believes that women can sometimes be right.

The closing soliloquy by Rush:

Oh, I’ll be around
Wherever there’s a rich white guy in need of another tax break, I’ll be there.
Wherever there’s a brain-dead woman in need of expensive life support her husband doesn’t want, I’ll be there.
Wherever there’s a country that needs to be invaded for reasons that don’t exactly pan out, I’ll be there too.

Rush then turns into an eagle and soars through the sky as America the Beautiful plays, and a flag unfurls.

One of the great episodes in this show’s history.
