boycott the alphabet, telling them the inclusion of the letter "O" in the ancient writing scheme was "proof that this whole thing has been a Leftist conspiracy from the getgo."
“Do you think that it is accidental, that the alphabet has a letter in it that just happens to be the first letter of Barack Obama's last name?" Limbaugh said Thursday.
“The alphabet, the number of people who use it is huge, a lot of people are going to use this alphabet. And it’s a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the college crowd,” Limbaugh continued. “And they’re going to see 'O' in the alphabet, and they are going to associate Obama. And the thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep using the alphabet, and the letter 'O', that these people will think back to Obama."
So far, more than five million of Limbaugh's followers have signed on to his "Boycott the Olphabet" campaign.
One caller to the show noted that the word "boycott" has two "Os" in it, and that Limbaugh's own website is still using the alphabet. Limbaugh cut the caller's line before he could go on.
"You know what else," Limbaugh added, "'O' is a vowel, and everyone knows vowels are the gays of the alphabet."
