    He didn't sound very tolerant. What's the definition of 'bigot' again?

    Do bigots sound like self aware people to you?
    I would ask you to review your recent posts with these definitions in mind, but if you're correct about bigots then I doubt you would perceive the irony.

    If thinking that being bigoted is bad, I plead guilty. I don't buy the argument that being critical of bigots is bigotry. That is a silly ploy intended to keep bigots from being held accountable for what they say or do. I have heard Rush and read many of his quotes and I know he is a bigot, or pretends to be one in the media. Most significantly, I saw all the fools who joined him in claiming that Sandra Fluke was a slut because she dared to advocate for subsidized birth control, which was an intentional threat to other younger women to shut up about politics or be slut-shamed.

    I see no reason to lower myself with that sort of grade school bravado. Although I can see how it fits in with Limbaugh and the tactics of the far right that appeal to you.

    You will have to ask him, as its apparently up to him to determine as he sees fit.

    The sentiment of Rush's comments were spot on, I dont think I should have to subsidize anyone's contraception (or abortion for that matter), especially not an Ivy league college student. His choice to make it a personal attack was not.

    Sandra Fluke isn't a slut; that is true. She's an attention whore.

    I'll admit, I haven't read them, nor do I care to.. However, I cannot picture Rush writing a book that didn't have some sort of bias to it, even (perhaps especially) being a childrens book.
