    I bet Don Imus is laughing his ass off at the muck Rush Limbaugh is in right now!

    ANY apology from Mr L certainly indicates he is under some heat from sponsors............kind of ironic when you think about it --- "Hey Rush -- MONEY pal speaks louder than conviction!"

    Rush is like a cockroach... he will be around after all the radiation of the nuke wears off.

    He'll be around awhile. Maybe he will go off the air for a time like a lot do but in a year or 2 he will be back. Remember Imus wasn't expected to ever make it back either. Marv Albert wasn't expected to make it back on air either.

    Happens all the time. Right now sponsors have pulled out there will be others that will fill the slots left empty.

    People clearly want to hear his comedy show or it wouldn't have lasted this long. I still remember back in 1993 when he had the television show on regular broadcast (non-cable) and each day he was doing day counts of how long Clonton had been President or maybe it was the countdown until he would be out....no matter. Back then people said he'd be gone in a month or 2. Instead he just got more air time.

    Rush is a hatemonger; unfortunately a minority of Americans love on the hate.

    He's not going anywhere.

    Agree with Bbucko. There is a huge market for what he sells.

    Looks like he pretty much stuck it back to the media and Demos this afternoon.

    He'll be around to get rid of BO. He'll be here when BO is gone.

    People don't like the truth.

    If calling someone a slut, because she wishes to testify about a lesbian friend who is on birth control pills to alleviate cysts and who's health insurance wouldn't cover them is the truth, then I don't know how much hope there is in the world.

    Agreed. Obviously they prefer lies, innuendo and slander. Which is why he has the most popular show in American talk radio. Lowbrow crap like what Rush pedals always sells.

    So what Maher, Schultz and every other Leftist/Marxist/Communist/Socialist commentator says about people of the right, middle america, or any other Conservative that speaks up is ok?

    I hate to break it to most on this board, but the left wing is the minority in this country. But seeing as they make up the most of news commentators, opinion writers, college professors, etc. they control the message. And will "beat down" any opposition opinion, but when one of their own does something that they accuse the right of doing they look the other way.....or call it a "distraction".

    Once the left treats their own like they do the right.......they need to get off their high hypocritical horse.

    FYI......Miss Fluke was a plant by the democrats on that day, just to cause mis-direction and change the big news stories of the day or week. She mis-represented herself during her little presentation, she's actually 30 and apply to Georgetown, not for the education....but to change their policies. Instead of finding an institution that shared her values...she decided to go to one she didn't agree with and change it.

    Yeah, it's called activism. Imagine where we'd be now without it.

    So misrepresentation is called activism, now???

    I can only imagine if someone from the right got up in front of congress and mis-represented themselves.......:rolleyes2:

    Four More Advertisers Ditching Rush Limbaugh | ThinkProgress

    "In total, this makes 26 advertisers who have taken steps to end ads on LimbaughÂ’s show since last week."

    Non sequitur (logic) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It takes considerable ignorance to believe that anyone here is unaware of that fact. But then, if your understanding of the term "left wing" is shifted as far to the right as terms like "socialist" are shifted in the speech of self-described conservatives of today (a use of terms under which, e.g., President Eisenhower comes out as a leftie), then what you say is indeed not widely known, but also not true.
    This is such silly and puerile paranoid nonsense that I can't bring myself to give it a serious reply. Maybe someone else will.
    A "plant"? How is she a "plant"? Apparently, you agree with Darrel Issa that a hearing on the coverage of female contraception by insurance policies is a process in which only celibate Catholic clergymen can give testimony and in which women have no business.
    If your claims have a basis in fact, provide it.

    SWEET.....we have a winner!!!

    Here's a link to the "plant" issue

    Sandra Fluke Is Really 30 Years Old And Went to Georgetown Knowing Contraception Wasn’t Covered | Video | TheBlaze.com

    Granted most on this board will probably dismiss the story because of the source, but if you look at the links and articles the story does reference.....makes you wonder.

    Nice reference of Wiki......

    On Rush's backers.....its call reactionary policies. Its like when that commentator said "chink in armor" headline with ESPN. Who own's ESPN? Disney, they will do whatever it takes to protect business. So when something could be taking out of context or see as offensive....just get rid of it. Don't ask quesitons.....just fix it. You know that the author of that headline is also married to an asia woman, right? Must be a huge racist :rolleyes:

    To me it seems as your view of what is left and right wing is so far to the left you thing fascists are right wing.

    And as far as my "paranoid nonsense", who are the ones protecting the democrats? Or won't question the presidents policies? Who are the biggest contributors to the democratic/leftist parties?

    My goodness a different thread and same ol' crap. It's like a ping pong game, but I would rather watch the game.
    The left is right....no the right is right. Fuck it, both sides are lost in their pathetic lies or dream worlds. Whatever it may be.
