Dumb: Leftist John Cusack to Play Rush Limbaugh in Propaganda Biopic

By Debbie Schlussel

Actor John Cusack’s day has come and gone . . . a long time ago. The last good movie he was in was 1999′s “Being John Malkovich,” and I liked him best in 1985′s “Better Off Dead.” You can say that movie title applies to his showbiz career, too. But he can’t take the hint. His failed leftist, anti-American movies, such as “War Inc.,” went nowhere. But he’s back and up to his old tricks, including a plan to play Rush Limbaugh in a predictably hateful “biopic.”

I asked Jedi Master of Photoshop Art David Lunde of Lundesigns to show us what Cusack would look like as El-Rushbo by putting his face on Rush’s head, and this is what he came up with, below. As you can see, Cusack as Rush ain’t exactly convincing. Probably the same deal with the script. You know it will be a hit piece flick, since liberal Cusack is developing the film as a vehicle for himself. It’s set to be directed by Betty Thomas, who directed Howard Stern’s love letter to himself, “Private Parts.”

Check out David’s pic of Cusack as Rush . . .



John Cusack as Rush Limbaugh by David Lunde/Lundesigns

Yup, even less convincing than the absurd makeup job that transformed Anthony Hopkins into a bizarrely incongruous Alfred Hitchcock for “Hitchcock.”

If you were casting an accurate movie on Rush Limbaugh, whom would you cast to play him? I would pick actor Brian Dennehy (and Rosie O’Donnell or Janeane Garofalo to play Sandra Fluke). (I also know who I would pick to play the cast of “Desperate Petraeus Sister Wives,” too, but I’ll save that for another post.)

If Cusack utters on screen word-for-word Limbaugh’s words spoken on air over the last 10 years, then Cusack may be in for a shock when the audience leaves the theater converted from liberalism toward Tea Party conservative.

I recall Cusak, in an interview, talking about how much he hated retailers who sought his endorsement … that he would, for example, show up at a men’s clothier for a Paid Appearance with a posse of friends, take as many suits as they wished and leave the owner gasping at the callousness of their bile for him. Leave with all those suits and insult him.

His own words. And I have despised him ever since. Because he was laughing about it.

I liked both those Cusick movies you mentioned (and agree) and I liked him best in “The Grifters”. So right…his last great film was “Being John Malkovich”. He’s a hateful Liberal bore. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

All these freaks who hate Rush Limbaugh never even listen to Rush Limbaugh. There has never been a more ignorant army of idiots. Yet he is the “Bete Noir” of the left for their psycho “two minutes hate”.

I met Rush Limbaugh all the way back in 1991 when I was a Liberal. He couldn’t have been more kind and a humble man. He was broadcasting out of WHDH and it was a “Meat Free Friday” and he bought the whole staff burgers from McDonalds. I didn’t eat red meat at the time (LOL…told you I was a dopey Lib!) but I thought it was funny and enjoyed the french fries.

I bought his first book (I think it was after I met him it came out) and even though I was a Liberal I liked it. I still have it. And I have never believed in Global Warming because what he wrote in the book all the way back then. It made 100% sense to even Liberal me at the time.

    Hey Skunky you passed on Mickey Dee’s cheeseburgers. What’s wrong with you girlfriend…LOL. Seriously though I used to like John Cusak but he’s turned into another leftwing buffoon in a long line of leftist buffoons.

    Ken b on November 14, 2012 at 12:18 pm

      Hee-hee Ken B! They prolly tasted even better then without all the PC food prep modifications! I think I really wanted to eat one too. Even when I was a pseudo-vegetarian I ALWAYS loved burgers from “Maccas”! Now I love a #13 off the Mickey D’s menu!

      Skunky on November 14, 2012 at 12:38 pm

        @Skuzzz,

        What do you mean, when you WERE a liberal? Nothing has changed – you’re still stupid, and you STILL vote for liberals.

        The people who hate Rush never even listen to him, you say? How are you any different? You hate me, but you never read any of my posts, LOL.

          From a post on previous blog:

          “I expect Debbie has decided to let me humiliate MM because she was tired of enforcing the ban. However, I for one, disagree with her. It seems clear that MM enjoys being beaten up by those he hates (just about everyone). While I do not waste my time criticizing “50 Shades of Gray” types in general, I do object when their perversion involves me in the activities. Muslim Monkey is rubbing up against me in a commute: if I ignore him, he continues; if I wallop him he spontaneously ejaculates. His actions here are disgusting and inappropriate.”

          skzion on November 14, 2012 at 6:56 pm

          “MM” = “Muslim Monkey”

          skzion on November 14, 2012 at 6:57 pm

          Poor Muslim Monkey contributes nothing, but he sure does make a pest of himself. He’s kind of related to A1. Both are perverts, but A1 is an autistic pervert, whereas MM is a sociopathic one.

          This time, the dope fails to realize that Skunky ignores his garbage NOW because, having read it early on, she found that it was garbage. In contrast, Limbaugh haters are blissfully ignorant of Limbaugh from first experience.

          What a lazy moron this guy is.

          skzion on November 14, 2012 at 7:06 pm

        Sorry, messed up text. It should be:

        “In contrast, Limbaugh haters are blissfully ignorant of Limbaugh, having had no first experience.”

        skzion on November 14, 2012 at 7:08 pm

          Absolutely, Skzion. It is so easy to ignore him. Even if I didn’t he isn’t worth my time. He’s an absolute nutter and anyone who STILL reads his posts (if they don’t fall asleep) can see he is all over the place. Like a kinetic mental case!

          I don’t care what he says and I don’t read what he says. Luckily DS has many interesting regulars who’s posts are informative and interesting. I glide right over his boredom and enjoy the intelligent (and funny) posts!

          Skunky on November 14, 2012 at 8:54 pm

          @Gay Obama,

          LOL at your repost. If that’s one of your greatest hits, your albums must all be made out of poo.

          That skeezer has been “ignoring” (and also responding to) me since long before you earned your well-deserved moniker…which she now BAAAWs about. Recommence pretend “shunning.”

          You’ve really got a death grip on that “sociopath” label – it’s like your security blanket, man. As someone who actually MEETS the clinical definition of a sexual psychopath, you certainly bring some knowledge of the subject to the table – LOL!

          Status Monkey on November 14, 2012 at 10:14 pm

          Those who want to see me take apart Muslim Monkey yet again–and specifically address his ludicrous understanding of conservatism and the absurdity of his likening me to Obama–can visit the “Harvard” blog entry.

          Debbie, if you need a blog pervert, A1 is a better choice.

          skzion on November 14, 2012 at 10:40 pm

          @Debs,

          Translation of Gay Obama’s last message to you: “MOMMMM! MAKE IT STOPPPP! BAN HIM, PLEAAASE!”

          I’d be a little leery of feeling sorry for the dingleberry, if I were you. Fight those maternal instincts. If he hates his REAL mother, he certainly doesn’t care about you.

          And

          @Gay Obama,

          The only thing we proved on the “Harvard” page is that you’ve been living a lie (one of many, I suspect) by falsely claiming that you attended a school you know nothing about – and one that isn’t all that impressive anyway. I would definitely choose EITHER of Schlussel’s alma maters over your counterfeit one.

          Status Monkey on November 14, 2012 at 11:03 pm

          I knew Muslim Monkey was a serial liar, but I did not know he was a compulsive liar. This fellow is sick.

          Of course, he went to prep school.

          skzion on November 15, 2012 at 10:14 am

          “I would definitely choose EITHER of Schlussel’s alma maters over your counterfeit one.”

          Lol, Muslim Monkey is now sucking up to Debbie. Course, I happen to share one of her alma maters. Oops! What will our blog pervert do now (besides masturbate at this new humiliationg, that is)?

          @Gay Obama,

          Suuure you did. I’m a little confused – I thought you attended both law school and medical school at Princeton. Yes, that should do – Princeton Law in particular is out of sight. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to hear that you graduated from that exemplary institution.

          Keep on begging Schlussel to ban me and delete my comments, dingleberry. Isn’t that what the person who “wins” the arguments always does? LOL

          Status Monkey on November 15, 2012 at 1:03 pm

          Poor Muslim Monkey, with his dopey at-signs and his dingleberries. This sociopath actually thinks he makes arguments! It’s that prep school training at work! But he doesn’t argue anything. He just asserts nonsense or flat out lies. He refuses to attend to evidence or someone else’s arguments.

          Now he puts words in my mouth regarding Princeton! Uh oh.

          However, of course, I’d like Debbie to ban the guy. I also wanted her to ban A1. I guess I feared A1′s ability to “win the argument” as well.

          skzion on November 15, 2012 at 7:42 pm

          @Gay Obama,

          Haha, everyone on this board knows that you lost the argument. Consider yourself BUSTED, fake “Maroon.”

          It wouldn’t surprise me if you DID claim to go to medical school at Princeton. Or perhaps law school at Dartmouth, LOL.

          Hmm, would you rather your @ name be “Gay Obama” or “Fake Maroon?”

          As for dingleberries, they probably pay you with the smelly things instead of giving you money. You’ve probably got enough of them saved up by now to fill up a mineshaft.

    GREAT STORY. THANK YOU!

    As goes... on November 14, 2012 at 1:08 pm

What’s next…..Hillary Clinton playing Jenna Jameson in her bio pic? When does this insidious crap stop?

IceNoMore on November 14, 2012 at 11:44 am

I started listening to Rush back when I was stationed in the Oakland area of California in the early 90′s. It was cool because his show came on at 9am and it drove the liberals in the office nuts. They would screech there’s Ken again listening to the commmie on the radio. Back then they called the man a commie and they just didn’t get it. Fast foward to my new job today with a boss who listens to NPR and calls Rush wait for it a commie. Liberals no matter how nice they are are still brain dead. Anyway I did like John Cusak in “Say Anything” and “Better Off Dead”. He was annoying in “Con Air” and if if was Colm Meaney I would’ve “crushed his larynx with my boot” but I digress. To have someone like Rush Limbaugh being portrayed by the hack Cusak is like his sister Joan playing someone like Nancy Reagan. Oh and Debbie tell Mr Lunde that the photoshopped picture looks alot like Joe Pesci.

Ken b on November 14, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Lunde’s picture of Cusack in makeup is hilarious. I LOLed.

DS_ROCKS! on November 14, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Chris Christie might be good. They do have something in common.

Little Al on November 14, 2012 at 1:32 pm

And seeing how former presidents are treated, given your prior post, I can just imagine how Rush will be treated in the film.

Little Al on November 14, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Are you referring to Bush the war criminal? If we were treating him the way he should be treated he would be in jail awaiting war crimes trials.

    marky212 on August 23, 2013 at 8:54 pm

skunky go to junk science and look at their take on man made glow bull worming while it is a dry read you will see that there is no correlation between co2 and temperature.they offer a lot of money to any one who can prove it but no takers yet.all you need to do to is look at the history of atmospheric co2 and temperature.the truth is right now we have the least amount of co2 in our atmosphere in earths history.co2 is life with out it we will die because we are carbon base life.no co2 no plant growth,no plants,no eat.this will be another commie movie that will loose money.

bruce on November 14, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Ooooooo! Is “The Cu” ,is “the Sack”,gonna do a DeNiro,and put on 50 pounds, to show what an “artiste” he’s still under the delusion that he thinks he is?

CharlesMartelReborn on November 14, 2012 at 2:31 pm

“Being John Malkovich” was an awful movie. The same scenes were repeated ad nauseum ala “Ground Hog Day”. Better Cusack movies were “High Fidelity” and “Grosse Point Blank”.

Better go back to Film Review school Debbie.

NormCBS on November 14, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Hollywood is nothing but a bunch of douchebags, and that includes Hollywood brown noser Howard Stern.

Jonathan E. Grant on November 14, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Another great example of the left talking to itself. Boring. Guaranteed flop with Cusack, not that he’s a bad actor, it’s just that he needs a movie with heart and basically Hollywood doesn’t really know how to do that anymore.

Frankz on November 14, 2012 at 4:59 pm

He siuuuuuuuuucked in “The Raven”. It was him being a bad impersonation of a small weaselly sickly introvert. Poe wasn’t a larger than average, screaming obnoxious brawler. Which is exactly how he portrayed Poe. Hated it. Haven’t paid to watch anything of his since I bought “Grosse Pointe Blank”. Detestable bastard.

samurai on November 14, 2012 at 6:03 pm

I like his act a film that came out in 1999, ”Taxi Driver” (I assume that was the name of the title?). Anyway, speaking of Limbaugh, if Jesse Ventura were in Hollywood, Id think he;ll play the role other conservative talk show host, ”Jerry Doyle”?

”A nation is defined by its borders, languague & culture!”

Sean R. on November 14, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Rosie O’Donnell sounds just fine playing Limbaugh himself, actually.

dee on November 14, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Even though I didn’t always agree with Rush,he used to be funny and he had an infectious laugh. He hasn’t been funny since around 1999, when he said he couldn’t laugh because of an undisclosed medical condition he had at the time (his hearing loss came later).Not only did he lose his laugh,he lost his sense of humor at the same time.

Not only does Rush seldom ever discuss the Islamic threat to America and the West,he’s become a boring grouch.

Rush is an industrial-strength hypocrite.

Here’s a guy who not only called drug users losers who should be sent to prison,he endlessly blasted Bill Clinton for not only breaking the law,but also using high-priced lawyers to stonewall a criminal investigation.

Of course,we found out that not only did Rush use drugs,he used high-priced lawyers to stonewall his OWN criminal case. Although it wasn’t part of his criminal case,there’s evidence he did more than simply “doctor shop”,he bought drugs from drug dealers via his housekeeper.She apparently was given enough money to go away.

Scott on November 14, 2012 at 9:28 pm

I was a big fan of Rush throughout the 90s, and the initial 2000s. However, he disappointed me badly by getting back to the issue of Democrats, instead of focussing on the problem of Muslims, including his backing of the Dubai ports deal.

That said, I don’t count on Hollywood to ever do an accurate portrayal of Rush.

I: I couldn’t agree more. As I pointed out many times on this site, his backing of the Dubai Ports deal was absurd. Ditto for his gushing over pro-Muslim “24″ and “Homeland.” Blind partisanship, especially to the point of ignoring the Islamic threat, is the death of us. DS

Infidel on November 15, 2012 at 2:10 am

    Nicely summed up Infidel! That’s an apt critique. Too bad the retardo Libs can’t construct an apt critique that is true as you did.

    Skunky on November 15, 2012 at 8:11 am

Brian Dennehy?
He’s much older than Rush Limbaugh.

MH on November 15, 2012 at 3:33 am

cusack is utterly vile, radical, ultra left-wing pathetic, propagandistic,extremist, radical garbage, period……I’m sure Rush will have a few things to say about this nonsense!!

Dave on November 15, 2012 at 4:16 am

I wouldn’t be surprised if a biopic on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was planned with Sean Penn in the lead.

Kurt Toy on November 16, 2012 at 10:26 am

Why would Cusack want to play the role of Limbaugh the junkie retard?
