    Default Rush Limbaugh

    Is a Cunt.

    How people like him and Glen Beck even have a voice, numbs me to the core.

    To a large degree Rush and his ilk on BOTH sides of the aisle are the major cause of the deep divide between the two parties and their inability to work together. They play to the lowest common denominators of fear, anger and nationalism and use that to unreasonably polarize otherwise reasonable people to the two political extremes. Many people see through this and use their own minds, these people, who once would have considered themselves moderate democrats/republicans, today are forced to call themselves independents because the two parties have become so divided.

    In years past Rush et al. would have been reviled as yellow journalists and demagogues, today they hide behind terms like 'talk radio host' or 'commentator' or other such doublespeak while simultaneously portraying what they feed the public as news and facts and skewing EVERYTHING to support their brand of extreme-ism.

    I'm all for everyone having their say. I don't care that these assholes spout their metric tonne of ass juice any chance they get.

    What worries me...they have an audience/following...and not a small one.

    His latest outrage has spurred people to go after his sponsors and they are listening and responding by pulling their ads from his show. Calling that woman a slut and a prostitute (he claimed in his later apology that he was merely trying to be funny - HUH?) could possibly be the the last straw. Good riddance Rush, you blowhard hypocrite.

    Yeah... my question to him would have been... did his insurance pay for any of those perscription meds he was abusing a few years ago. And he was bloviating about a woman wanting her insurance company (NOT the Govt.) to pay for her birth control pills, ffs, most of them pay for friggin' Viagra, how much of a disconnect is that?!?

    I have long believed that he is a dirt bag. Says what ever he wants, whether it is fact or fiction, without repercussion, and to the detriment of US politics. Unfortunately, there are people that believe his verbal diarrhea and take it at face value. This is a part of the reason why he is 'dangerous'. People eat up that shit cake he is serving. It would be a delight if his sponsors finally did pull out, when all know he father should have.

    Another of Rush's highlights, He SHOULD have been gone from the American discourse after this little gem...


    Rush Limbaugh On the Offensive Against Ad With Michael J. Fox

    By David Montgomery
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Wednesday, October 25, 2006

    Possibly worse than making fun of someone's disability is saying that it's imaginary. That is not to mock someone's body, but to challenge a person's guts, integrity, sanity.

    To Rush Limbaugh on Monday, Michael J. Fox looked like a faker. The actor, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, has done a series of political ads supporting candidates who favor stem cell research, including Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin, who is running against Republican Michael Steele for the Senate seat being vacated by Paul Sarbanes.

    "He is exaggerating the effects of the disease," Limbaugh told listeners. "He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act. . . . This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting."

    Limbaugh, whose syndicated radio program has a weekly audience of about 10 million, was reacting to Fox's appearance in another one of the spots, for Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill, running against Republican Sen. James M. Talent.


    But the Cardin ad is similar. It is hard to watch, unless, for some reason, you don't believe it. As he speaks, Fox's restless torso weaves and writhes in a private dance. His head bobs from side to side, almost leaving the video frame.

    "This is the only time I've ever seen Michael J. Fox portray any of the symptoms of the disease he has," Limbaugh said. "He can barely control himself."

    Later Monday, still on the air, Limbaugh would apologize, but reaction to his statements from Parkinson's experts and Fox's supporters was swift and angry.

    "It's a shameless statement," John Rogers said yesterday. Rogers, Fox's political adviser, who also serves on the board of the Parkinson's Action Network, added: "It's insulting. It's appallingly sad, at best."

    "Anyone who knows the disease well would regard his movement as classic severe Parkinson's disease," said Elaine Richman, a neuroscientist in Baltimore who co-wrote "Parkinson's Disease and the Family." "Any other interpretation is misinformed."

    Fox was campaigning yesterday for Tammy Duckworth, a congressional candidate, outside Chicago, when he alluded to Limbaugh's remarks. "It's ironic, given some of the things that have been said in the last couple of days, that my pills are working really well right now," he said, according to a report on the CBS2 Web site.

    After his apology, Limbaugh shifted his ground and renewed his attack on Fox.

    "Now people are telling me they have seen Michael J. Fox in interviews and he does appear the same way in the interviews as he does in this commercial," Limbaugh said, according to a transcript on his Web site. "All right then, I stand corrected. . . . So I will bigly, hugely admit that I was wrong, and I will apologize to Michael J. Fox, if I am wrong in characterizing his behavior on this commercial as an act."

    Then Limbaugh pivoted to a different critique: "Michael J. Fox is allowing his illness to be exploited and in the process is shilling for a Democratic politician."

    Limbaugh's shock at Fox's appearance is a measure of the disease's devastation, advocates say. Contrary to the charge that Fox might not take his medicine to enhance his symptoms, the medicine produces some of the uncontrolled body movements.

    "Stem cell research offers hope to millions of Americans with diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's," Fox says in the Cardin ad. "But George Bush and Michael Steele would put limits on the most promising stem cell research."

    Fox has appeared in ABC's "Boston Legal" this season. In his scenes, taped over the summer, Fox does not shake or loll his head as he does in the Cardin commercial, but does appear to be restraining himself, appearing almost rigid at times.

    A source with direct knowledge of Fox's illness who viewed the Cardin ad said Fox is not acting to exaggerate the effects of the disease. The source said Fox's scenes in "Boston Legal" had to be taped around his illness, as he worked to control the tremors associated with Parkinson's for limited periods of time.

    He never lets up. Every time he apologizes for some stupidity on his part, Rush then immediately throws in some sort of left handed insult just to balance things out. I'll never understand what drives someone like that. What a fuckwit.

    Clear Channel, Limbaugh Ink $400 Million New Contract

    By SARAH MCBRIDE
    The Wall Street Journal
    July 3, 2008

    Conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh Wednesday inked an eight-year contract for around $400 million, underscoring how radio is spending big sums on bankable talent to compete in the crowded entertainment field.

    Mr. Limbaugh's compensation of $38 million a year, plus a signing bonus of about $100 million is less in absolute terms than the five-year, $500 million contract Howard Stern cut in 2004 with Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. But Mr. Limbaugh's contract could net him more, as Mr. Stern must pay costs for his cast and production.

    It's a big jump from Mr. Limbaugh's last contract, which at $285 million was a record for a radio personality when he signed it in 2001. Since then, the weekly audience for his three-hour midday show has held steady at about 20 million listeners, according to his syndicator, Clear Channel Communications Inc.'s Premiere Radio Networks. But advertisers are increasingly anxious to reach that audience.

    Mr. Limbaugh's show is the nation's most-listened-to[.]
