Rush Limbaugh cites 007, U.N.C.L.E. villains in commentary

NOTE: This isn’t a political commentary and isn’t intended to start arguments/debates over political issues.

On his March 25 show, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh did a commentary about the situation in Libya starting around 12:30 p.m. New York time. He said the North Atlantic Treaty Organization had “James Bond villain-sounding guys” running it. After a brief audio clip from Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the commentator said, “He could be running SPECTRE. He could be running Thrush.”

SPECTRE, of course, was the organization run by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, which was involved in six of the first seven films of the James Bond movie series and the Ian Fleming novels Thunderball, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and You Only Live Twice. Thrush was the large villainous organization that provided the opposition to the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

  1. This is not meant as a political comment. Limbaugh doesn’t know his Bonds from his UNCLE’s.
