It took about that long to realize they were complete and total douchebags and to not waste another ounce of my time with them. Rush Limbaugh is a caricature(but at least he is original)...and you and people like you have kept him on the airwaves and made him the top radio show host in history and made him wealthy beyond words. Because...you know...you hate him so much.
    This is not some personal crusade where I want to get him off the air because he says nasty things that hurt my feelings... This is about the effects of his propaganda. You don't seem to believe that what he and others like him do have any kind of effect on America? Propaganda is one of the most powerful tools in the history of civilization... Look at the role it played in WWII. It plays a major role in every aspect of our lives and the very fabric of our society.

    I don't listen to his show or any other similar show. I do however keep tabs on the crap he spews and the effect it has on his victims.

    I'm noticing the stories are only on leftwing news and scum sites. Let's see, what is it that the lefties always say about anything form rightwing sites? Oh yeah, let's wait and see or it's just rightwing noise machine or some other imbecile rant.

    So this makes how many times that the end was near for Rush Limbaugh? His last contract was for 400 million. Which means whoever is paying him is making MORE than 400 million off him. I understand why top advertisers want to avoid controversy. They have a lot to lose, and they don't want to be harassed by congress whenever he says something. But given hes the most popular show on radio, advertising with him gets you major exposure. Its just dumb not to take advantage of that.

    The fact that you'd call her a slut indicates that you listen to Rush Limbaugh too much. What other opinions has he spoon fed you?

    So tell me again how this ISN'T about silencing those you disagree with?
    You don't have a constitutional right to advertising dollars, but I see you've retreated from the previous "free speech" argument.

    If you don't buy something from MSNBCs advertisers, are you trying to silence MSNBC?

    Hell, some of these companies advertise on all sorts of programs. I guess this means I'm trying to silence everyone at one!

    The effects of anyones propaganda is equivalent to the fuel you give it. If Limbaugh has 12 million listeners, I'd say its a good bet 1/4 of them are liberals that hate his guts. Thats...kinda funny when you think about it.

    Reeeeeeeeeeally? So...the fact that there were a dozen or so threads on the matter or that THAT was what the topic was...that couldnt by any chance have ANYthing to do with it, eh DD?

    I believe my opinion on it at the time was not that she was a 'slut' but that she was a liar. Her own words indicted her. but you have to be extraordinarily dishonest to think that the furor and indignation was not centered around the word 'slut'.

    (oh...and before you get your silkies twisted too much...I happen to agree with you on the advertising ban. People can and should vote with their dollars. Its the best voice consumers have)

    I really hope this is the beginning of the end for Rush. I also really hope this is a signal that the country is sick and tired of political garbage for entertainment and is more interested in real discussion.
    I don't know why you want him gone, if you don't like his program, don't turn it on. The simple truth is that he doesn't help the electoral chances of the GOP. I remember when Bill Clinton was elected for the first time, Rush started a day count where each day he would announce how many days were remaining. Clinton was re-elected just the same. When I started listening to him, I was a registered Republican and voted straight Republican, today I'm just the opposite.

    Rush Limbaugh is an institution who will be behind the golden microphone until the day he dies.

    Laughable

    If you want clear examples of blatant propaganda, all you have to do is listen to Jay Carney answer questions at a press conference.

    From what source do you "keep tabs on Limbaugh"?

    She testified before Congress she was having so much sex it was making her go broke, therefore she needed taxpayers to subsidize her birth control

    Fluke = slut

    Heh, you just described the now defunct Air America. If minds are being "poisoned" it's a voluntary poisoning. Much like MSNBC watchers.
