Rush Limbaugh described a nightmare scenario on Thursday’s radio broadcast when he commented on the breaking news of Attorney General Eric Holder’s sudden resignation announcement.
Limbaugh told his audience to prepare for different possibilities, including this disturbing one:
There may be a Supreme Court vacancy, and I can see Barack Obama nominating Eric Holder to fill it, and it would be much easier for Eric Holder to make the jump from private sector law firm rainmaker after six years at DOJ to the Supreme Court, than from DOJ straight to the Supreme Court. I don’t know how much that would matter, but don’t rule any of that out. I don’t think there’s any scandal. I don’t think it’s Fast and Furious. I don’t think he’s worried about the Republicans investigating anything if they win the Senate.
A little later in the broadcast, he announced more predictable bad news.
I was making a joke earlier. And when I make jokes, they come true. Get this. Al Sharpton said that he is engaged in immediate conversations with the White House as they work to name a successor to Eric Holder. I was making a joke that the next attorney general would be Sharpton or somebody. And Sharpton says that he is involved in intimate conversations at the White House to find the new attorney general.

Let’s all hope Limbaugh steers clear of jokes about Holder on the Supreme Court.
