Rush Limbaugh Thinks Stephen Colbert's Audience Was Laughing WITH Him

Apparently some things are too subtle for El Rushbo:

RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number one. Last night it was Comedy Central, and it was Colbert Report. I always do that, the Colbert Report. And it was time to make fun of your host, El Rushbo, for my take on the meaning of the election.

LIMBAUGH: The biggest and perhaps the most important mandate a political party has had in the recent era, and it is very simple what that mandate is: It is to stop Barack Obama. Republicans were not elected to govern.

COLBERT: Thank you. Republicans were not elected to govern. Their one job -- (applause) -- huge, huge Rush Limbaugh fans here tonight. (cheers) Republicans were not elected to govern. Their one job is to stop Obama.

RUSH: And that got practically a standing ovation on Comedy Central last night, totally shocking the host, and once again, demonstrating the whole world agrees with me on this. It just does. It's a great validation.

Rush seems to understand, unlike many on the right, that Colbert is not in fact, a genuine conservative, but doesn't seem to grasp the possibility that the people cheering in the audience, probably weren't doing so as legitimate fans. If they were, don't you think they'd probably be booing when they realized Colbert was making fun of Rush?

But hey, don't take my word for it. Watch the segment below and judge for yourselves:
