    This is a guppy-nibble on a blue whale. He's that big. Love him, hate him, ignore him, whatever... this whole "slut" thing is ultimately going to be trivial.

    Rush Limbaugh has drawn the ire of celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who sent a letter to the Palm Beach County state attorney requesting an investigation into whether the popular radio host should be prosecuted for calling a law student a “slut” and “prostitute” last week.“Mr. Limbaugh targeted his attack on a young law student who was simply exercised her free speech and her right to testify before congress on a very important issue to millions of American women and he vilified her. He defamed her and engaged in unwarranted, tasteless and exceptionally damaging attacks on her,” Allred told POLITICO Friday afternoon. “He needs to face the consequences of his conduct in every way that is meaningful.”

    I wouldn't want this woman pissed at me. I hope she succeeds and sues the oxycodone out of him. Serves him right.

    I think that has to do with die hard anti-Limbaugh tards threatening the sponsors, not listeners changing the station.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I didn't realize we've had an Arbitron ratings survey in the past week.

    I'll probably never be able to prove it, but I would be good money that his listening audience was larger than usual due to the "controversy".

    Yeah, it no longer is the behind the scenes the way liberals attack, and attempt to silence those voices they don't like....The tolerant, oh so tolerant libs sees their tolerance end at the point where their ideology differs with anyone else. And their Alenski playbook is unmasked.

    A group calling itself "The Women of the 99 Percent" is making robocalls across the United States in an attempt to link Republican members of the House of Representatives to "the war on women led by Rush Limbaugh".

    The automated calls are illegal because they do not state who they are from (there is no known group called The Women of the 99 Percent) or provide a callback number, as required under the US Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991.

    Here is a good artcle that explains Rush:
    just happened to cross the tracks when a train was coming through: Making patently offensive comments about birth control, at a moment when many Americans were already patently offended by the attack on birth control.

    You hate Rush because he tears your talking points to absolute shreds and wins every debate. I don't like his style either, but the man is 10 steps ahead of liberals on every front.
    They don't debate they simply yell at each other. All pundits are retarded taking heads for their respective masters.

    Yes, I posted an opinion from a progressive article.
    I don't agree with the whole article but I do agree with the opinion that Rush did say offensive comments about birth control at a time when many Americans were already offended by the attack on birth control. I believe that is why there was such outcry at this time.
    That was the point I was trying to make.

    BTW: i meant to say "good quote" or "quote I agree with" instead of "good article"

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.
    Joe The Plunber wasn't a public figure. Look how the Libbos treated him. He had his rights violated like a mother****er and it didn't seem to bother any of the folks in Libbo Land.

    Oh wait; let me guess..."that's different"...too?

    The only, "difference", here for the folks that have their panties in a knot, is that Rush is a Conservative and Fluke is some kind of Left wing heroine.
