The Real Slut Here is Publicity Whore Rush.....And It's Time For Him To Join His Crazed Pal Beck In Oblivion Hell

The Limbaugh Gila Monster

We already knew, of course, that right-wing radio shock jock reptiles have extremely toxic fangs.  The level of viciousness in which they tear into their prey, however, is another matter altogether.

Those that dare to dispute the almighty pronouncements of these beasts--in this case a woman law student testifying before Congress for the basic right to have birth control--must really stimulate the gland in those reptilian brains to send them into an attack frenzy that has no bounds, no end, no mercy whatsoever.

Definitely looks like this slobbering Limbaugh lizard went beyond his usual name-calling and traveled into the realm of sexual  on-air fantasies, revealing some irresistible craving to see a young woman video sex scenes and present them as a gift so he could have a vicarious visual.

Enough of this.  Just as Glenn Beck was finally sent to walk the plank, let also this stomach-churning sack of bigotry & bile do likewise.  The most deplorable commentary is the existence of millions of cretins inhabiting this country, supporting and encouraging this sick spectacle.  

Of course, as with Beck, the key to purging the airwaves of this grotesque pathogen is to hit their real feeding source: The commercial sponsors who act as official pimps for a demogogue whose publicity whore skills will richly reward their bottom line.
They need to get the message the day of Rush's reckoning has at long last arrived.

The New York Times yesterday ran this story:

Attack by Limbaugh Awakens a ‘Stop Rush’ Campaign

Some of the same activists that persuaded advertisers to boycott Glenn Beck’s television show on Fox News in 2009 are now mobilizing against Rush Limbaugh in the wake of his verbal attacks on a Georgetown University law school student this week.

Actually, they are remobilizing. A Twitter account, “Stop Rush,” which has been dormant since late 2010, woke up on Wednesday, when Mr. Limbaugh first called the student, Sandra Fluke, a “slut.”
On Friday, as complaints from “Stop Rush” and others about Mr. Limbaugh’s comments mounted, a handful of companies said that they had halted their advertising on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” at least temporarily.

One of the companies, Quicken Loans, wrote on Twitter, “Due to continued inflammatory comments — along with valuable feedback from clients and team members — QL has suspended ads on Rush Limbaugh program.”

Two mattress companies, Sleep Train and Sleep Number, made similar statements on Friday. A representative of Sleep Number wrote on Twitter, “Recent comments by Rush Limbaugh do not align w/ our values, so we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program.”

Mr. Limbaugh’s comments on Wednesday about Ms. Fluke, who had testified in support of the Obama administration’s requirement that health insurance plans cover contraceptives for women, were immediately noticed by Media Matters, a liberal media monitoring group that has been raising red flags about Mr. Limbaugh’s language for years.

“What does it say about the college coed Susan Fluke,” Mr. Limbaugh said that day, misstating her name, “who goes before a Congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.”

Mr. Limbaugh followed up again on Thursday and Friday, even as Ms. Fluke defended herself in interviews and President Obama called her to indicate his support for her.  The “Stop Rush” Twitter account asked on Thursday, “Are y’all ready to @StopRush? Getting the strong sense that it’s time and the feedback has been there so far. Spread the word.”

The person behind the account, Angelo Carusone, has subsequently started to contact some of the sponsors of “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” which is distributed by local radio stations across the country.  Mr. Carusone similarly ran a Twitter account called “Stop Beck” in 2009 that targeted Glenn Beck for calling Mr. Obama a racist. He and other activists and groups contacted advertisers, hundreds of whom eventually asked Fox to keep their ads off Mr. Beck’s show.

This link will take you to a stirring address to Congress by a California representative, along with an interview with Sandra Fluke, the law student defamed by the misogynistic maniac.
Below, a list of the beast's advertisers, who you can call, fax, and email.  Don't lose this opportunity, friends.  The only thing corporate entities generally respond to is the profit line.  If they can make a profit sponsoring "The American Nazi Hour," they will.  And if they begin to lose their bottom line, they certainly won't.

Please, make your voices heard.  With numbers and determination,  Limbaugh can begin rooming with Beck in the very same garbage dumpster.

Make it happen--call these advertisers today and tell 'em you'll never, ever patronize them again as long as they are in league with this monster!

"To taste the sweet....I face the pain": Goodnight, shining diva

This is how The Voice touched me.

Passionate, joyous, and poignant.  Tingly feelings when that towering sound ripped through the speakers and flooded the car.  That gorgeous woman's blinding, perfect smile whenever she'd stroll confidently across a stage.

And then there were those music videos.  In Whitney's prime, they were the glittering diamonds that lit up the MTV jewel box.  Of her scores of hits, there were two that enlivened me like none of the others. 


This epic song hits all the right notes, lyrics exploding with pathos, on that journey that starts in childhood but will only be survived with the active ingredient of enough self-love.

"I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all

Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all....."

There has been more than enough written about Whitney's debilitating addictions to drugs and a degenerate punk.  She tragically couldn't find enough of that greatest love to rescue herself from these relentless demons.

And it slowly destroyed her.  The health, then The Voice, and finally the rest of her.

But like so many legendary singers that also succumbed to self-destruction--we know the list--Houston's music will endure, a permanent place in our popular consciousness.  Her story is part of that, yet another cautionary note on the horrifying perils of addiction and how no one on this earth, however rich and famous, is immune to its ravages.

Her other classic is a kind of prophetic one.  Hard to watch through the tears tonight.  I thought about all those moments she did celebrate in the years before her spiritual demons finally caught up with her.  But thank God for the fact that Houston held on long enough to serenade us so we could bask in her ocean of triumphs.

"Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity....."

Let the peace find you once again.
Thank you, Whitney.
