Rush Doubles Down on “Slut” Speech

You almost have to wonder whether the Republican Party has forgotten women have the right to vote.

As Senate GOPers tried in vain to let employers deny insurance coverage for contraceptives (and just about anything else they don’t like), party icon Rush Limbaugh kept up his attack on Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student he called a “slut” for defending birth control.

In another sign of Limbaugh’s hold on Republicans, their silence is deafening in the face of his latest madness.

Even by Limbaugh’s wretched standards, this time maybe he has gone too far for his own good.

Sandra Fluke


Fluke Responds To Limbaugh: ‘This language is an attack on all women’
No woman deserves to be disrespected in this manner. This language is an attack on all women, and has been used throughout history to silence our voices. (Sandra Fluke, Think Progress)

[Transcript below]

RUSH LIMBAUGH (3/1): Oh, yeah, I’m gonna deal with this. I’m gonna deal with it. I think this is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. The left has been thrown into an outright conniption fit! This is “phony soldiers” times ten. Oh, ten times worse than phony soldiers. The reaction that they are having to what I said yesterday about Susan Fluke — or Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is — the Georgetown student who went before a congressional committee and said she’s having so much sex, she’s going broke buying contraceptives and wants us to buy them. I said, “Well, what would you call someone who wants us to pay for her to have sex? What would you call that woman? You’d call ‘em a slut, a prostitute or whatever.”

That has sent them into orbit! Pelosi’s in orbit and Sheila Jackson Lee. They’re still talking about it on the House floor. The Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee sent out an immediate fundraising letter with a picture making me look like Dracula. I mean it is… (laughing) I’ve got the original story here that all this feeds off of, so all of you sit tight. Look, at least I didn’t call her “a woman driver,” and I’ll tell you this, you people on the left: I’ll happily buy her all the aspirin she wants. Snerdley, you would agree. We would happily buy Sandra Fluke all the aspirin she wants. What could that possibly cost. But contraceptives? So much sex at Georgetown?

The headline: “Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control, Student Tells Pelosi Hearing Touting Freebie Mandate — A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke, so you and I should pay for their birth control.” Cybercast News Service. So what would you call that? So I called it what it is. And, bam, boy, you nail these people with the truth! So I’m offering a compromise today. I will buy all of the women at Georgetown University as much aspirin to put between their knees as they want. Well, here’s the thing about that. Where are all these guys?

Is it any wonder, Clinton wanted to go to this law school and why Hillary went to Wellesley? Is it any wonder? Where are the guys here? Do they not have a role here? We assume they’re having sex with guys. (interruption) Well, we’re talking about birth control, Snerdley. So you gotta assume having sex with guys. So, do they not have some responsibility? (interruption) Well, two women… I have to ask sex expert Snerdley on this, but I’m not aware that two women without another device can get pregnant on their own using naturally endowed accoutrements. I don’t think times have changed that much. (chuckles)

Now, I am 61. Maybe something I haven’t heard about that two women together would need contraception. That’s a whole new ball game if that’s the case. But I don’t think we’re talking about that. So it means there are men involved and that would mean there’s some responsibility on the part of the men. Do they not have condoms? Why don’t these women go ask the men to buy them contraception? Why go before a congressional committee and demand that all of us — because they want to have sex any time, as many times and as often as they want, with as many partners as they want — should pay for it? Whatever, no limits on this. I mean, they’re going broke having to buy contraception! They’re getting back-alley pills, folks. That’s what this leads up to.

I want to go back and get this out of the way ’cause I’m sure that there is voluminous tune-in today to hear about this controversy that has arisen with my blunt talk about Sandra Fluke. We’ve run some numbers on this. According to Planned Parenthood — and they should know — birth control pills cost between $15 to $50 a month. So, at most, that would be $600 a year. What is Sandra Fluke buying? We then — I didn’t do this, but a member of the staff well-versed in these matters went to Amazon to check the purchase of condoms. And essentially what we found is that you could buy the equivalent of using five condoms a day for $953, and if you paid for it at once you could get free shipping. And everybody’s in a hurry here. So free shipping would matter. Nine hundred fifty-three dollars. So Planned Parenthood, $600 bucks a year. Condoms, $953 a year.

Now, here’s the story that started all this. It’s by a guy name Craig Bannister at Cybercast News Service: “A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke, so you and I should pay for their birth control. Speaking at a hearing held by Pelosi to tout Pres. Obama’s mandate that virtually every health insurance plan cover the full cost of contraception and abortion-inducing products, Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said that it’s too expensive to have sex in law school without mandated insurance coverage. Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, Fluke’s research shows.” And of course what’s sex if the ends aren’t meeting?

But Fluke presented research to the committee: four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception. Have you heard of anything more ridiculous? This is flat-out thievery. It’s outright ridiculous that taxpayers should pay for the personal sexual desires and habits of everybody, including women, at Georgetown Law. Fluke reported: “Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown student insurance not covering contraception).” The poor babes have to buy their own pills. What has gone wrong with our country? What has happened to our country where law students have to buy their own contraceptives? What has happened to us, folks? What have we done with our hearts? How did we become so cruel?

How did we become so heartless? Require each other to pay for the contraceptives of the women law students at Georgetown? Sandra Fluke reported to Pelosi: “It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations. ‘Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,’ Fluke told the hearing. … That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex — and, she wants us to pay for it.” Now, what does that make her? She wants us to buy her sex. She wants us to pay for her sex, and she went to a congressional committee to close the sale.

It’s the right place to do that. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Where do you think the insurance companies forced to cover this cost get the money to pay for these co-eds to have sex? It comes from health care insurance premiums that everybody else pays. There isn’t anything free. “‘For a lot of students, like me, who are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary,’ she complains.” A thousand dollars, $3,000, practically an entire summer salary that they now have to spend on sex. So she earns enough money in just one summer to pay for three full years of sex, and they’re full years because she and her co-ed classmates are having sex nearly three times a day for three years straight, apparently.

Well, that’s what the numbers add up to! We’ve run ‘em here: $953 for condoms on Amazon. That’s a year. That’s close to a thousand bucks. Why aren’t condoms provided free by this stupid policy? Why only birth control pills? No, I’m not advocating. I’m just asking the question. At $1 a condom, if she shops at CVS pharmacy’s website, that $3,000 would buy her 3,000 condoms or a thousand of them a year. We’ve done all kinds of research on this. And what about these deadbeat boyfriends or random hookups that these babes are encountering here, having sex with nearly three times a day? While in law school.

If Fluke is gonna ask the government to force anybody to foot the bill for her friends’ birth control, shouldn’t it be these guys? Who pays for the abortions? Oops! We already know that, too. So that’s where this all started, that story. That’s where it all started. A woman who goes to law school at Georgetown goes to a congressional hearing where Pelosi is (crying), “I’m going broke having sex! I need… I need the government to provide me condoms and contraception. It’s not fair.” Okay, so this is a law student at a congressional committee asking for us … to … pay … for … the … things … that … make … it … possible … for … her … to … have … sex.

Therefore we are paying her to have sex.

Therefore we are paying her for having sex.

We are getting screwed even though we don’t meet her personally!

What would you call this?

So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.

RUSH LIMBAUGH (2/29): What does it say about the college coed Susan Fluke [sic], 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.

She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.

The johns, that’s right. We would be the johns — no! We’re not the johns. Well — yeah, that’s right. Pimp’s not the right word.

  1. Her response tonight on the Ed Show, was far more eloquent and compelling than Rush could ever hope to be.
    As long as she keeps talking and he keeps doubling down,
    the out come can not be in doubt.

    Woo Hoo Sandra Fluke!

  2. This doesn’t really surprise me. It seems that Rush Limbaugh (like Santorum and the rest of the hard right) believes that women should not have any opinion that was not put in her empty heads by a man previously. Why women actually listen to him and vote as he tells them, confounds me.

  3. The far right have rules.

    No matter what you say, they can’t back off or apologize, because it shows weakness.

    If white males would say something in the locker room of a country club, it’s fair game as long as you don’t use the seven dirty words

    It’s always fun to make fun of weak people to show that you’re not weak.

    Even though you’re deathly afraid of sex, talk about it either like you’re a well-practiced expert or a Calvinist Pastor. Feel free to switch roles in the same sentence

    No matter what is wrong, liberals did it. If you run a red light and hit a school bus, there is a way to blame anyone else, preferably the government for interfering with your right to drive fast by putting a light where it shouldn’t be

    When complaining about anything, try to work the President into the conversation, like — “It’s a shame that all the Penguins didn’t make it back to the rookery. Obama wants to fund Antarctic stations to study this, and I heard that the bulldozers they used actually killed more than 20,000 of them”

    If the conversation involves casual sex, make sure you intimate that Bill Clinton would do the same thing (male issues) or that Hillary, Nancy Pelosi or Barbara Boxer (if you need a “hottie”) would be promiscuous enough to participate

    The most important rule: Don’t get on Rush’s bad side -- there are 20 million seriously stupid folks out there that will do whatever he says, and they only vote Republican. If they ever wise up it’s all over for us.

    Or something close to this.

  4. Good morning…great work, as usual, Craig.

    I think being republican is a mental illness.

    And Rush only has a woman hanging off of his arm because of the money. He still is a fat oinker with a crappy personality. His carbon footprint is as big as his mouth and ass.

  5. And Rush only has a woman hanging off of his arm because of the money. BW

    I’m thinking the current problem with him is there is no woman hanging off his arm ..even all that money can’t keep a woman with him how many wives??????

    And ewww The coalescing of craptastic people New birther book out Gordo must have gone to work for Joe R-pi hole

    and Ann Coulter on CNN (I’ve changed my mind about Soledad OBrien) eulogizing her friend Andrew Breitbart
    he’s dead move on.

  6. I never thought in my lifetime, religion would play such a great role in my social life. I thought we had moved on from the dark ages. Instead, my government has pissed away trillions of dollars on fighting a society that throws baby girls on a hillside. A society so broiling with testosterone, they have to kill and blow-up humans at amazing numbers. That is their birth control. And just when you thought it was safe at home, the republicans are hijacking my vagina. Forcing their attitudes about birth control on everyone. I wish they would just relax and realize only democrats use birth control and abortion Their voters are safe.

    Remember “Year of the Woman?” Those days are gone.

  7. a) Happy Birthday to Jamie.

    b) First news story on google is Romney/Santorum with thumbnails of vid clips, among them, Criag & KO.

    c) He-who-shall-not-be-named loves attention just as much as the ex-half-Governor. The more he is fed, the more he will crave it.

    It’s sad that such hyperbolic speech gets so much attention. He is beyond ridiculous. However, if I recall, he does know quite a lot about taking pills.

    If his followers don’t mind his hate speech toward women, might they be offended by his pro-condom stance if they are against birth control?

    It’s easy to see that the GOoPers are standing on a platform of nothingness. That is why they are going to inflate issues like this as much as, and for as long as possible. They love wars, job losses, high gas prices. They have no viable remedies for these things, and they have a loudmouth on the radio, yammering on as a distraction, to prove it.

    Having said that, I’m all for free speech. If he wants to show folks what a fool he is, that’s his right. If his over-lords don’t want to tamp things down, that’s their right, and it speaks volumes about them, as well. It can only help Democrats. Keep talkin’.

  8. KGC…thanks for mentioning sheriff Joe…another tool that makes sure Hispanic girls are fodder for perverts. Another closet woman hater.

    And there are always women for these loathing Lotharios.

    Here at home, we deal with institutional abuse of children. Pedophilia from the very trusted church, university, etc. The hypocrisy makes me ill. And the republican party dresses-up religion and brings it to the table to try to shame women. I am sick of living in bible times.

  9. Blue… that was my thought too… the sad thing about all of this Rush stuff is that he is getting exactly what he wants… attention.

    And what better way to honor a fallen bully (Breitbart) than to continue on with bullying ways.

  10. here’s my ad idea
    Open with a picture of Rush…and a caption and voice over The Voice of the Republican Party and then begin his rant and morph the face into Mittens or Sanctimonious or all three of them

    Another is to follow the marriage timelines of Nudie and Rush Republican family values

  11. Well my bad Rush is still married to his 4th wife
    She must be an Oxycontin addict. I wonder what she thinks of Bigfatliars ranting about a woman about her age and her interest in sex. From looking over this site and reading between the lines I’m thinking Rush not so hot in the sex department.

  12. happy happy, jamie.

    i agree with blue that rash slimeball spoke to get attention. how else would he stay in business, it’s his schtick. he willfully and purposefully slandered an individual who eventualy will be imo the recipient of a very large award (or at least a settlement from bain’s deep pockets).

  13. I agree with all the comments above. I simply cannot understand how rush limbaugh is still in business. Where are the clean, clear, and independent thinking republicans?

  14. Rush did it because the Republicans need to keep the Catholics and rightwingreligious nuts in line they make up a big part of the Republican base. They are
    unenthusiastic about their candidate and since they have lost ground on the economic front the only thing the republicans have left is hate. And who best to deliver that message…the man filled with self-loathing big fat rush

  15. Republicans own most of the major media outlets
    and why would they fire the person delivering their message and earning them a boatload of cash while doing it
    I think Jackie Spiers idea to organize boycotts and protests to his sponsors will have a greater impact

  16. Jamie previous thread : “That young woman has a multi million dollar settlement in her future.”

    1. I think every woman at Georgetown ought to sue limbag, clear channel, bain, and it’s officers. Claim future earnings damages of $100M!LL!ON each. That would get him to make an abject apology or put him out of business. These are law students, and they can pursue the case to the SCOTUS for almost zilch.

    2. Think hate crime, also.

    3. Think of how huey long died. By spouting lies like that, limbag is getting very close to the grave.

  17. Theresa 43: “Where are the clean, clear, and independent thinking republicans?”

    Here I am.

  18. Clean, clear, and independent thinking rippers are all called x-republicans. And, I am legion.

  19. Of course, death would not save limbag’s estate from having toi defend against a B!LL!ON $$$ lawsuit by Georgetown students.

  20. KGC at 8:59am : “Republicans own most of the major media outlets….”

    As far as I can tell, all but Public TV, Public Radio, and Current.

  21. Ahttp://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201111080014 little media matters on Rush and Republican attitudes toward women

    A short film on how revealing the primaries have been about Republican attitudes towards women --
    from pizza pimps cavalier treatment of women, Santorum thinks of women as chattel and of course the Voice of the Republican Party thinks of women as sex objects and wants more porn (probably spends a lot of time with Lynn Chaney)

    I guess they figured out no sentient woman would vote for a republican and that other clown from Maine needs to go to she voted the wrong way yesterday

  22. You would think that a man who is an outed sex tourist — caught with insurance-funded Viagra in his luggage, no less — would be able to tell the difference between a law student and a paid sex worker. And God help whatever paid sex worker got stuck with him…

  23. Received a fund raising notice from Mark Udall this morning asking for “Help” so he could continue fighting. Now I like Mark, but here’s a big 2 x 4 up the side of the head to get attention (men are darling but can be dense at times).

    He and every male in Congress would be more believable on their love and respect for women if THEY were donating to this young woman’s legal fund to sue Rush, his station, and the deep pockets of all of his advertisers for libel. Pogo and our other legal beagles -- if an advertiser knows what they are sponsoring are they financially culpable for the fall out?

  24. Hey X-R
    Pretty sad huh
    There are couple of other things

    Pacifica and Link TV

    There is another cable network I think its Truth TV
    which is more center left --very high on the DISH network dial but still free I think Thom Hartman is involved with it.

  25. Thank you for the birthday greetings. Somewhere in all of our moves we seem to have lost the “Favorite Movies” list, but as I remember, Casablanca was near the top. In case you want to read why I give my age as “the same as Casablanca’s Oscar”, the story can be found on the blog

  26. President Obama’s greatest legacy will be that his election laid bare the depth of hatred and ignorance in this country.
    From a racist joke about the President and his mother(the punch line of which was clearly meant to dehumanize)to the latest Limbaugh tirade,we’ve been sadly reminded that we tend to bring garbage into our homes instead of hauling it out to the curb.
    The upside of all this is that exposure is toxic to hate. Rush Limbaugh’s words are now public record. They cannot be expunged,forgotten,granted immunity or pardoned. All the money in the world cannot buy them back or cover them up.
    Attacking women is stupid.Everyone had a mother.Most have sisters, wives, partners, daughters. Friends.
    And,Republican Party,women were granted the right to vote.Why on earth would you allow any mouthpiece to alienate them?In reality,this is and will remain a two Party race.
    Mr. Limbaugh makes a crack about President Clinton wanting to attend Georgetown(for all the unlimited sex)& even more telling,about Mrs. Clinton going to Wellesley(allusions of Lesbianism).In the netherworld of Limbaugh & his followers,any woman who is independent,intelligent,outspoken must be labelled so as to be identified as an enemy:Feminazi,Slut,Prostitute. Highly offensive,degrading.This mentality also holds that being a Lesbian(!)is a bad thing.Uh,no Rush,they’re people and they vote,too.Probably in higher numbers than other groups.
    Boycotts,calls for his firing are all good,but the best action is to vote come November.Fill out a ballot. And remember.

  27. From a racist joke about the President and his mother(the punch line of which was clearly meant to dehumanize)

    sjwny good for bringing this up --it’s getting lost

    And a federal judge told the joke. He’s lucky the limpballs flap has taken the heat off him but it should be turned up.

  28. What a busy day yesterday politically! While Rush and the GOP (with far too many Dems voting yes) were busy relegating women to 1910, the governing party to your north was getting caught making calls to suppress the vote in our general election last May. This isn’t the usual campaign dirty tricks — those are legendary. These are things like calling people ONLY on opposition lists (how’d they get them?) and telling them their polls had changed when they hadn’t. Calling ppl on those same lists in the middle of the night — nuisance calls — huge banks of phone lines calling across provinces to commit voting fraud. This is serious stuff, and yesterday, Dean Del Mastro, MP and parliamentary secretary to the Prime Minister, got caught in a huge web of lies on national tv. It’s been fun to watch them all twist in the wind, but it has also made us pretty frigging angry. WE (Canadians) are the ones asked to oversee elections in other countries to ensure that they are fair and accessible. This guy, Rick Mercer, is our version of Jon Stewart, and he pretty much spoke for most of us on his show Tuesday night. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDPaRKXoVeA Oh to live in interesting times.

  29. It’s time for some irate Georgetown dad to shoot the bastard, and claim the cheney defense.

    No jury with more than one woman (ie, lizard cheney) would convict him.

  30. How come no one has asked Donald Trump what he thinks of the limpy rant — they ask him about everything else
    why not this

  31. Tylenol

    What is really sad is that this voter suppression disease was probably a contracted from your still deathly ill southern neighbor.

  32. Wishing Jamie a very special Happy Birthday.

    Theresa43,
    The far right wing of the Republican Party has purged all of the clean, clear, and independent thinking republicans from the party including myself.

    Rush is being Rush and his loyal audience is the far right wing that is today’s Republican Party and they treat him like a pastor in their church and do as they are told. That is why the republican politicians bow with reverence to the Limbaugh.

  33. The Obama Administration has carried on the Bush Administration’s cover-up of the government of Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks including the Justice Department joining the kingdom in trying to have the lawsuits thrown out of court even after an appellate court reversed an earlier court decision in November 2011 which stated that foreign nations were not immune to lawsuits under certain terrorism claims.

    Saudi Arabia May Be Tied to 9/11, 2 Ex-Senators Say

    “I am convinced that there was a direct line between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the September 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia,” former Senator Bob Graham, Democrat of Florida, said in an affidavit filed as part of a lawsuit brought against the Saudi government and dozens of institutions in the country by families of Sept. 11 victims and others. Mr. Graham led a joint 2002 Congressional inquiry into the attacks.

    His former Senate colleague, Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, a Democrat who served on the separate 9/11 Commission, said in a sworn affidavit of his own in the case that “significant questions remain unanswered” about the role of Saudi institutions. “Evidence relating to the plausible involvement of possible Saudi government agents in the September 11th attacks has never been fully pursued,” Mr. Kerrey said.

    Still, Washington has continued to stand behind Saudi Arabia publicly, with the Justice Department joining the kingdom in trying to have the lawsuits thrown out of court on the grounds that the Saudis are protected by international immunity.

    Saudi Arabian Government Tied To 9/11 Attacks! “Is ANYONE Surprised By This?” Answer: Slience

  34. What’s wrong with being a slut? I’ve always had a soft place in my heart for sluts. Bless Sandra Fluke’s heart.

  35. Rush Limbaugh….thank U.!!

    When people like him are in the spotlight…makes me happy b/c it also spot lights RELIGION…..all religions, all churches want the females to kneel down before them….the Limbaugh of the world want to keep their power over them…they want them to do just what the bible tells them to do…..honor thy husband…father…priest…brother, and pimp,etc, etc,….but most of all….that fkn pedophile pope, cardinal, and the lowest priest…..they must be obeyed no matter what they do…..not my words….it is all in the book of myths….

    Blonde Wino,

    We have never left the age of religious intolerance towards women, all attitudes towards them are the same, nothing has changed…just the gas mileage of the chariot got a little better, and the roads….but they all lead to a better place….churches, and heaven….

    >>>>Just a little side note….whenever some shit like briebart…or someone like him dies….why do you want to send him down to us satan worshipers?…what did we do to deserve him….let him go to heaven with the rest of the bible people…name one thing one bad thing that us devils are responsible for….Nada..<<<

    The reason that the churches, religion fear women is that if they are not kept in place…is that they would have the powers to raise the young to be independent thinkers, and would encourage the males to think women as their equals…..they have to control the female mind in order to keep the powers that they cherish so much…and religion is the only way that they can do it…..

    History shows that religion feared witches…so they burned them.!! ( don't know if this women Fluke is a church going person…but if she is)…..but are women that practice any religion….getting what they ask for??

    The end of All religion = the end of 98% terrorism, wars, slavery of women….and all kinds of bad stuff…..

    ps…if people like breibart die of hate….why hasn't the Dick Cheney, limbaugh. Beck, and the most religious women of them all……..whats her name……………Phyllis Schlafly….I would rejoice……

  36. Who in hell is rush to call any other person a slut ?

    He’s a monster of a Kreepy Kloset Kweer, twisted and mutated by his dirty festering secrets into giant howling slime.

    Where are all the terrorists when there is a worthy target ? The existence of clear channel is an affront to G!d and man. Ain’t no justice.

  37. Religion feared witches….so they burned women…….what more proof do women need to see that religion is not on their side….

  38. Patsi,and my sister maria, just slapped me a cpl upside the ol cabeza….but im going to have to take it….stick by it…I don’t know or not…do women that belong to a religion asking for the Limbauh, beck, attitude towards them?….later

  39. ps…if people like breibart die of hate….why hasn’t the Dick Cheney, limbaugh.

    Ah, one of the great mysteries of life.

  40. Last night I told the wife that Breibart had died of heart problems. She told me that there was no way his heart could have been a cause of death.

    Jack

  41. with this Republican party, I noticed a serious need. We need some one to invent a pig slapping machine. There are so many in need of the service that it wears on the hand.

    Jack

  42. Who in hell is rush to call any other person a slut

    Hey, xrep, you have to admit he is the expert at slut.

    Jack

  43. Let Limbaugh talk his foul mouth off without interference. But, encourage some bright individual with the savvy to prepare a publicly accessible database of Rush’s advertisers, to prepare such a database.

    The listing should provide Rush’s national and local advertisers. The locals should be tied to Zip Codes. How an individual uses this information is up to each person accessing it. I know what I would do with it. :)

  44. Solar… Diablito… finally you make an appearance.
    We have a new member that is a male of Mexican descent… maybe he’ll show up and introduce himself to you.

    As for women and religion… my last sojourn into religion was as a Bahai a little over 30 yrs ago. I was attracted to it in the first place because of their emphasis on the equality of men and women. After a year of “indoctrination” I was informed that women were equal but could not sit in the highest house of worship. It didn’t take me (or Rick) long to realize why they didn’t tell newbies this bullshit and we promptly left the faith. I’ve never joined a religion since, nor will I ever again join one. I respect others’ rights to do so… hope they respect mine to not do so.

  45. “Solar… Diablito… finally you make an appearance.
    We have a new member that is a male of Mexican descent… maybe he’ll show up and introduce himself to you.”

    Oh yeah….does that make us a gang? (I hate them suckers)….U seen one of em (me, I am Solar) u seen em all……I haven’t read any of the past threads like I would normally, and won’t…..but will take a peek at the last cple…ifin he doesn’t sound like me….he is an imposter…

  47. Sarah Palin, Expert in Bickering, Responds to HBO’s “Game Change”, Ignores Sandra Fluke
    by Taylor Marsh

    This is just too rich.

    Sarah Palin whining about GOP bickering, of all things, while SarahPAC has an argument with HBO about their film “Game Change,” which debuts next week.

    Sarah Palin’s “advisers” are also complaining about the film.

    Meanwhile, there is radio silence from Sarah Palin about what Rush Limbaugh said about private citizen Sandra Fluke.

    The first female to benefit from the Hillary Effect, Sarah Palin, reveals that whatever the Palin effect is today it revolves around narcissism and ignoring an issue where a young woman in the private sector speaking out is targeted, smeared and libeled by right-wing Republicans.

  48. Renee,

    “I’ve never joined a religion since, nor will I ever again join one. I respect others’ rights to do so… hope they respect mine to not do so.”

    Spider-gal-pal…..here is the thing as i see it: This is like what some people say about other religions (not saying that U did) they say foolish things like: ” I have no problem with anyone practicing their religion, as long as they don’t have a problem with me practicing mine”…what they leave out is “mine is the only right one”…so they don;t have a problem bombing the hell out of the others…..I think that is just one way of enabling them to keep all of the hatred going……so we must speak out against even the smallest churches….and i do know that some are trying to do the right thing:

    In our hood, we have one that feeds the hungry, and won;t turn anyone down regardless of faith, or non-faith…but if it wasn’t them doing it….some one would fill that need……us human apes will look out for each other when we can….but the large empty buildings won;t…they are cold and empty whit attitudes of the past……….ok talked enough again….later

  49. Not sure if anyone else has said it, but Breitbart’s dying is just God’s way of saying “Shut up!”

  50. from HuffPo: After being bombarded on Twitter, mattress store Sleep Train said that it would no longer advertise during Limbaugh’s top-rated show following days of outrage over Limbaugh’s statements about Sandra Fluke: “We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community’s feedback,” the company wrote in a tweet.

  51. I continue to maintain that Rush is the world’s greatest argument for retroactive birth control….

    ♫♪♫ Happy, happy birthday, Ms. Jamie! ♪♫♪

  52. The inerrant or infallible bible, religious right’s belief, says that women are subservient to men.

    Genesis 3:16:
    1 Corinthians 11:3:
    1 Corinthians 14:34:
    Ephesians 5:22:
    1 Timothy 2:11-12:
    Titus 2:3-5

  53. Sorta got interrupted in my ranting at various sponsors & etc. of the vile El Rushboor--we got some heavy weather going on around Knobite Corner--tornadoes spotted at Etowah & around Tellico Plains.

    However, yes, Craig, I’m telling off everybody I can think of for Patsi--

  54. Happy Birthday Jamie!

    A friend of mine and I ascribe to a theory that March babies are among the most intelligent.

    It is only coincidence that we happen to also be March babies.

  55. Craig… remember when pundits were saying that Rush had become irrelevant to the GOP. Well, now he’s found an issue which makes him important again. I expect him to triple and quadruple down on this as long as he’s getting attention.

  56. National Organization for Women (NOW) calls on Rush radio syndicator (co-owned by Bain Capital) to pull the plug on him:

    “Bigoted bully Rush Limbaugh has been rewarded for his hostile, hate-filled speech for far too long. The National Organization for Women calls on Clear Channel Communications to pull the plug on Limbaugh’s gilded microphone immediately. In addition, we call on Limbaugh’s conservative comrades in the media to fully denounce, with no excuses, his derogatory comments.”

  57. I just got emails from both the DNC and the DSCC using the Limbaugh stuff to ask me for campaign contributions. They get money… Limbaugh gets money. All the political programs will use this for ratings… all the meanwhile giving Limbaugh more ratings. And so it goes….

    It’s all one big effing farce… to make money.

    ps… Craig, I do know that you are sincere in your efforts here. I do know that you really care about women’s rights.

  58. I have undressed Rush with my eyes and it is the most effective birth control I have ever used.

  59. OD

    Another March springing eternal.

    I share the date with Dr. Seuss which may explain the tongue firmly in cheek and of course Casablanca’s Oscar which explains the dramatic flare. Not quite sure who deposited the horse racing gene. :-)

  60. Confirmed a tornado touched down in Tellico Plains a block from my best friend of 40 yrs. home--and I can’t get hold of her by phone or internet--Say a prayer, light a candle or something. I’ll be back attacking El Rushboor’s sponsors as soon as I find out where Wendy’s gotten to--

  61. I hear ya Rebellious. Been think today about how Patsi always griped about the left name-calling Palin. For one thing makes it harder to crititize the right for something like this, and of course today on his show in his typical deflection routine Rush brought up nasty words used against Palin, and how Dem leaders didn’t denounce that

  62. oh god, Faire… I hope your friend and everyone else manages to stay safe. I just heard on Ratigan’s show that a couple of small towns in southern Indiana have been completely obliterated by a tornado.

    My heart goes out to everyone affected by these storms.

  63. I hope the DNC and anyone who denounces the big fat pig
    raised a ton of money. I hope every time he opens his porcine trap money flows into the Democrats

    If pig face wants to be the voice of the republicans
    Democrats should broadcast far and wide what he has to say. He’s only doing to gin up support on the religious right. He just a tool of the party (albeit well paid tool)

    I hope every single sponsor drops him. If pro flowers does not drop him — women should tell any man that if send they flowers from them it will be just like an insult

    What do women who are part of the GOP think especially ones with daughters the same age as Ms. Fluke…say Sarah Palin for example

  64. Still praying--Wendy & family may have been evacuated to Tellico’s jr. high, but Lord, the damage is massive--& there are reports of fatalities I haven’t been able to confirm--Am also keeping an eye on Indiana, friends in that area--

    Thx Blonde & Renee--

    Rumor going around Twitter that Oreck (I’d love to have one of their fancy vacuums) has pulled ads from El Rushboor--Another sponsor to heckle: Autozone--

  65. What Democratic did to Palin, while unacceptable imo, was much like some of the attacks directed against HRC. Nasty yes, not called for in political discourse yes, but politics ain’t bean bag. But I have never heard any attack raise to the level the Limbaugh has done with this young woman. To call this young woman a slut, a prostitute, to ask her to produce porn films for your pleasure, it is beyond the pale and is something that no decent adult man would do. This young woman could be one of our daughters or sisters who chose to speak her mind. And Limbaugh is using his mega phone to trash her just for speaking.
    The Democrats shouldn’t have needed to lead the charge against Limbaugh. Every decent moral Republican should have already shouldered them aside. Where is Olympia Snow, the sniveling coward, like all the rest of the “moral” bunch. They are hiding scared to do what is right.

    Jack

  66. The difference between Hillary, Palin, and Ms Fluke is that the first 2 are politicians that voluntarily put themselves into the line of fire when they decided to run for office. Sandra Fluke is an ordinary citizen… and no one… man or woman… should have to put up with what is happening to her just because they’ve been granted the “privilege” of testifying before Congress.

    I too have emailed those sponsors.

  67. From AutoZone’s FB page--

    AutoZone would like to clarify that we do not purchase advertising on Rush Limbaugh websites, nor do we sponsor the Rush Limbaugh radio show.

    If a commercial did run, then it did so in error.

    Okay--

  68. Tellico mayor held a press conference with Channel 6 (WATE TV Knoxville) a few minutes ago and confirmed: NO FATALITIES (thank you, Lord!) although there were some minor injuries. The whole town has been blocked off though, and communications are nonexistent.

  69. Suspending advertising?? What about ending it.

    I just heard Manboob say “oh that rush --he’s an entertainer” Rick Sanctimonious finds Rush Limbaugh entertaining. I wonder if his wife and daughters find Rush amusing.

    The canard that Rush is just an entertainer is unacceptable. OMG if a Democrat had said something like this the entire party would be in the process of resigning but for the goopers it is just another day at beach. Here’s what Santorum meant to say “Insulting…sure maybe but it was only said by a minor comedian — I’m sure no one thought he meant it. And he and I are so different.”

    Not really Rick

  70. The Gingrich daughters have been going on talk shows for Dad maybe someone should ask them what they think about this

    And what about asking Liz Chaney or Mary Matalin or any of the talking heads who are Republicans what they think about Rush Limbaugh’s comments. I’d like to hear the frozen face of the goopers explain this and not using the excuse that he is just an an entertainer. It would be great to put together a series of clips of Republicans trying to stammer their way out of saying anything meaningul (fear of Rush)

    If there is a brain among them They should just say he was wrong and should apologize. But noooooooooo

  71. Bay Buchanan proves she is just like her brother completely delusional

    she said the birth control issue was being raised by the Democrats — only on planet Buchanan

    and Rush is a genius but an entertainer

    So the goopers are lining up with the entertainer excuse…

  72. Thanks Katherine--Knobite Corner’s under a tornado warning until 7:15. Nothing here (we’re about five miles outside Madisonville) although a funnel tried to form in town. Hopefully we’ll only get rain & wind, no rotation--

  73. http://craigcrawford.com/2012/03/02/rush-doubles-down-on-slut-speech/#comment-282751

    gradysu…

    You forgot a couple things in your comment above.

    1: Rush was caught with Viagra that belonged to someone else. The prescription was actually in his doctors name and a violation of his drug probation.

    2: Rush had just returned from a visit to an island that is or so I have read to be a top spot for child prostitution.

    Now I’m not saying that Rush is a child sex predator (pedophile), but one has to wonder why he needed somebody’s Viagra for a trip to a island known for the child sex trade.

    Nor am I saying that he goes there to have sex with little boys or girls, but one does have to wonder.

    Also lets just think about what Rush did say.

    1: All his Republican male supporters by staying silent on this is also quite telling. They are saying that their wife’s and daughters who did go to college are all sluts and fucked everybody on the campus while they attended college.

    Of course since they all have the money to pay for their own birth control pills they must have been the sluttiest women on campus.

    Please Mr. Reporter ask Rick Santorum if his wife or daughters are sluts and if they went to college so they could get fucked. After all they probably didn’t get any at home.

    Have a great day

  74. Craig…

    How much do I owe the swear jar for my comment above.

    Sorry, but I could not resist thinking that the Republicans in the House and Senate have wife’s and daughters who are all sluts.

    Have a great day.

  75. I’ll pay anon-paranoid’s fine
    It would be an honor and well worth it

  76. Republican Family Values
    Sex, Drugs and As—--s
    That’s entertainment

  77. Calling Rush an entertainer is saying all the GOP like XXX Pay Per View on a regular basis.

    Thank you for all the good wishes. Casablanca and I thank you. :-)

  78. The republicans have lost control of the economic issue

    and they’ve gone insane and now they are trying to blame this on Democrats — oh puleeze

    Goopers take responsibility for your spokesman he’s your Baghdad Bob

    There must have been a republican blast memo saying Rush is just a entertainer and he does better when the Republicans are out office — what a pile of poop
    trying to separate themselves from him without making the old pig angry

  79. Giving credit where credit is due but just two?

    Other Republicans voiced stronger repudiations.

    “Rush Limbaugh’s comments are reprehensible,”Sen. Scott Brown(R-Mass.) wrote on Twitter. “He should apologize.”

    California Republican Carly Fiorina said the statements were “insulting.”

    “It’s incendiary, and most of all it’s a distraction,” the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard said in an interview with CBS News.

  80. KGC…

    Thanks for paying my fine for me.

    Sorry to say that Baghdad Bob was funny. Rush Limpballs is not.

    One could almost believe that Rush has Joseph Goebbels DNA and if Rush is Jewish than he’s a self hating Jew for supporting Republican ideas, morals and values.

    Have a great day. Time to watch Ed live on the internet tubee thing.

  81. Good idea Jack. We should recognize the Republicans who do the right thing..even if there are only two

  82. KGC

    Scott Brown is trying to save his rear end. His first statement on the subject was barely up to the description of “wishy washy”. This “he should apologize” barely qualifies as wimp speaking. Where is the outrage from the GOP.

  83. I heard Scott Brown had for unknown reasons pulled ahead of Elizabeth Warren --what’s up with that

  84. KGC -- Look for the internals on the poll.

    Important: Make sure all of the GOP knows that this is not a “Friday Dump” and that you will be back on Monday calling for their heads and anyone referring to Rush as an “entertainer”.

  85. I do not know if I’m right or not, but I do believe that Rush’s show is not heard in Germany since they have laws against hate speech like the crap he spews all the time.

    They lived through that kind of talk already under the Rise and Fall of Hitler’s Nazi Germany. That kind of speech is banned.

    As to the scare at Limpballs home the other day, I often wonder if his private protection could keep him safe from someone with a shoulder rocket launcher rocket fired at his house.

    Have a great day.

  86. Important: Make sure all of the GOP knows that this is not a “Friday Dump” and that you will be back on Monday calling for their heads and anyone referring to Rush as an “entertainer”.

    Jamie

    Sounds good to me

  87. Craig,

    Nice but short on Olbie. If possible you need to plug the blog especially on days like to today when the place explodes.

  88. Mary Matalin it’s satire don’t you get it

    and Rush is right 99.7% of the time

    and questioning the right of the woman to testify

    Mary Matalin you suck at pig face’s tit

  89. Ari Fleisher is trying to make this about everything
    but what happened typical republican deflection
    Ask frozen face what do your daughters think I’ll bet they agree with their father on this not you --and you brought them up

    The reason the Huffpo doesn’t have to apologize is because the piece was satire as opposed to Fatpig which was not
    Matalin and Fleisher is the one the doesn’t know the difference

    And Matalin once again mouthing the party line even though it makes no sense. No one wants to get it rid of Rush they want to hang him around your neck

  90. 2: Rush had just returned from a visit to an island that is or so I have read to be a top spot for child prostitution.

    anon@1902

    What the hell is child prostitution? Do little kids say I’m going to go out and have some childish fun by prostituting myself to dirty old men?

    In fact, call it what it is: systemic rape.

  91. And Anderson Cooper did a crappy job
    the panel sucked and his moderation of it sucked

  92. The Piers Morgan attempt to minimize the Rush flap is to call him a tired old man

    Piers Morgan just called out Rush and wants to know what his record of sex is..who and how often. Looking forward to this conversation after all doesn’t he get a tax break for medical expenses either he or his employer and doesn’t he need ED drugs…I’m paying for Rush’s sex ewwwwwwwwwwww

    He has on Penn Gillette who thinks the whole conversation is very anti-sex…

  93. A facebook friend sent me a present. You all get to indulge my obsession until 12/7 when Les Miserables finally premiers for me camped out overnight at the IMAX. :-)

  94. Piers Morgan has an editorial moment at the end of his show. He called Limbaugh an irrelevant dinosaur and wondered why he was still on the air. He made the point that this was someone testifying before a congressional hearing and deserved respect.

  95. Interesting contrast in ideologies can be seen in boycott petitions.

    Conservatives call for boycotts against companies and broadcasts that promote compassion, whereas progressives champion boycotts against companies and broadcasts that espouse intolerance.

  96. http://craigcrawford.com/2012/03/02/rush-doubles-down-on-slut-speech/#comment-282848

    Flatus…

    There’s an island, though at this moment I can not remember the name, were child prostitution is common. I believe it has to do with both the poverty level and adults whom take advantage of children for financial gain.

    It’s no different from right here in the good ole US of A except for the fact here its runaway teens being taken advantage as well for financial gain.

    The greatest difference is the fact that we have a better economy then they do and the poverty level is greater there than here.

    Some have no other choice as they may see it at the time depending on their age, however there are plenty of scumbags out there that won’t hesitate to do harm to the most vulnerable no matter their age.

    Have a great day.

  97. KGC
    This is not directed at you.
    Sorry but I’ve got to rant here.

    someone testifying before a congressional hearing and deserved respect.

    WTF?
    They just don’t get it, do they. A civilized human being does not behave toward another one as Limbaugh did toward this woman. The respect has nothing to do with what she was doing, it has everything to do with her being another human being.

    The man called her a slut, a prostitute, and ask her to make a porn movie for him.
    Can’t these people just come out and say it like it is. Any one who would do that is a piece of shit, period!
    How simple is that?
    Jack

  98. Hum, comparing Limbaugh to shit isn’t a fair comparison. After all shit does have it’s uses.

    Jack

  99. There is already a video up of the Tellico plains tornado Faire was talking about earlier.

    Jack

  100. Dang crazy hillbillies, out makin’ movies of the big storm-- ;-)

    My niece took some astoundingly eerie shots of a funnel cloud that never completely formed out in her neighborhood out in town--would post them if I could, may do so at my blog--

    Anyway, the remnants of this front are rumbling through now--low thunder & a moderate rain--supposed to be twenty degrees cooler & certainly less flamboyant tomorrow. This wasn’t as scary as April 27 2011 or that ghastly February series of storms that killed fifty plus in TN in 2008, but it was memorable--

    Legal Zoom apparently has dropped El Rushboor--now ProFlowers & Carbonite are the big social media targets--

    Sweet dreams, all--

  101. happy birthday to jamie, and i’m really sorry these subjects have to be discussed on it.

    Anon Paranoid and Flatus: Human trafficking is a real problem around the world. Those who do not know this and state slavery is over are uninformed. Those who know of it and state slavery is over are pricks. Women not only little kids but teens and adults are taken by men and sold around the world into brothels, strip clubs, and massage parlors. Major spots where these girls or women are grabbed are Nepal and Eastern Europe. However, they are grabbed in the US and other places. Major way stations for trafficking are Houston, Texas; Bangkok, Thailand; and London, Great Britain. Unfortunately, many in this country refuse to have their massages stopped. Evidence of this is that The New Yorker article where they said human trafficking is blown out of proportion. Of course, perhaps i’m wrong…but…one person being trafficked IS TOO MUCH. There are others, who refuse to have their lap dances taken away from this. This is evidenced by the anti-human trafficking laws that were shot down in the Honolulu state government because if trafficking were to stop, it would destroy strip clubs in Honolulu. And why on earth would we want to shut down a small business like that… Again…Perhaps, I’m off but to me, if you are forcing trafficked women in order to bring your business online; YOU SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS.

  102. Rush is a twisted, drugged, probably Viagra saturated old ham. The birth control pills are prescribed for more than birth control. It doesn’t all have to do with sex, except Rush’s preoccupation with it. How much it costs isn’t what the argument is about, Limbaugh, it’s about fair access to prescription medication. Viagra is covered, OxyContin is covered…
