    Enlighten us how "con whiners" who claim they hold Columbia Law School Degrees whining about lib whiners is somehow different?

    Sponsors pulling out like this are a joke. We have seen it before. They dont want to be associated while there is a controversy going on but give it a month and they will all be back. When things die down, they will be wanting to target that audience again. These companies don't give 2 shi** about what he said. They are doing it to look good for the moment. Nothing new here, see Kobe or Tiger Woods or any other scandal where advertisers dropped off.

Also, Americans all over the spectrum realize how full of crap politicians all over the spectrum really are, so vitriol thrown against them is fine.

    But this Georgetown student isn't seeking office nor is she a public figure. She's just an advocate wanting to speak out on this issue to the legislators who will be deciding this issue. So it comes across as a bitter mean dickhead picking on a young woman who just wanted to speak up.

    And if it's one thing Americans root for it's an underdog or someone who looks like they're being bullied, even if you disagree with their stance. And it comes across as if Rush was bullying this young woman.

    That's the difference if you ask me.
    Well, I am also surprised that this is what is seriously hurting Rush as he has made extremely racist comments (Hey Rush, when it comes to sports ... shhh! - CBSSports.com) (Limbaugh Brings Baggage with his ESPN Blabber) (Limbaugh: A Color Man Who Has a Problem With Color?) in the past. Thus, why were those things never dealt with and ignored, but as soon as he called a woman a "slut," there is so much uproar about it?

    Basically you're making an absurd argument. Like, it would be okay for me to walk up and punch a stranger in the stomach ... as long as that person wasn't someone who had advocated against assault and battery.
    Sarah Fluke ceased to be a private citizen when she took part in that sham "hearing" (which was nothing more than a press conference). She inserted herself into the public arena.

    And as we well know (just to add to X's comment) once she's in the public arena, anything goes.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    So Congress is a sham? Well I suppose you're right. Anything led by republicans certainly is that.

    So calling you a pedophile would be ok?
