Limbaugh: 12 Years A Slave Only Won Best Picture Because Of "Magic Word" In The Title

RUSH: Remember, now, all good comedy must be rooted in truth. There's no way that movie was not gonna win. If it was the only thing that movie won, it was gonna win best picture. There was no way. It didn't matter if it was good or bad. I haven't seen it. It was going to be win. It had the magic word in the title, "slave." And here was the announcement by Will Smith some three and a half hours later.

SMITH: And the Oscar goes to... 12 Years a Slave.

RUSH: Oh, yes, such good people. But, folks, why was no conservative name mentioned? Why was no Republican name mentioned? Why was there no bashing of any conservative or Republican? Anybody in there on the other side of the glass want to take a stab at answering the question? Nobody wants to take a stab. See, they know that I have the answer. Oh, no, there's all kinds of targets. They just didn't see it necessary to hit anybody. The reason no Republican or conservative was bashed is 'cause they didn't think it was necessary. Why isn't it necessary? 'Cause they think they're winning everything. They're happy.

That group last night was very happy. That was a very satisfied, happy group of people last night. They were not angry about anything. They were not fit to be tied over things. They were not bashing political opponents. I mean they're sitting on top of the world. They think they're winning and winning big.
