She’s worse than Rush Limbaugh. She’s worse than Karl Rove. She’s even worse than Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. She’s worse than any person that has lived on the planet since Judas Iscariot. She’s vile and perverse and wicked and she needs to be muzzled and imprisoned and sealed in a small little cage where school children can throw rotten eggs at her for all eternity. She’s sickening and reprehensible and I wish she did not have any sort of following because all of her followers are just as perverse as she is for supporting her.
Why? Because amidst all her hate-speech she has now stooped to the absolute gutter and called a person a ‘retard’, thereby demonstrating her total depravity.
And why hasn’t the media called her on it?

He is such a simpleton. Truly. So what sort of person could ‘follow’ him and maintain any sense of self respect?
Rush Limbaugh, while repeatedly insisting he is “not alleging a conspiracy,” suggested Monday that the National Hurricane Center’s forecast models for Tropical Storm Isaac were altered to help President Barack Obama and “cast a pall” over the Republican National Convention. “I’m not alleging conspiracies here. The Hurricane Center is the regime; the Hurricane Center is the Commerce Department,” Limbaugh said on his talk show. “It’s the government. It’s Obama.” The conservative talker suggested early forecasts, which showed the storm hitting Tampa, the convention’s host city, were intended to cause Republicans to cancel the first day of their convention. Newer models showing the storm striking New Orleans, he said, are intended to link the convention to memories of Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall seven years ago this week.
I used to think the guy was just a bloated loud mouthed publicity whore. Now, I actually feel sorry for him. He has no sense. He has the same capacity for reason and intellectual discourse as Pat Robertson. He’s sad and tragic and the years of Oxy abuse have destroyed what few brain cells he used to have.
To all who are on the cusp of becoming Oxy users- be warned: Rush Limbaugh-ianity is your future.

As reported by Towleroad, a Cleveland radio personality–Dominic Dieter of WMMS 100.7’s show Rover’s Morning Glory–told the father of a possibly lesbian girl to have his daughter raped by a man until she’s straight.
The comment came after he received an e-mail from a father who had found his teenage daughter kissing another girl. Dieter decided to dispense his advice: Have one of your friends “—–” her. That’s right. According to Dieter, the father should get one of his grown adult friends to “—–” his teenage daughter because she kissed a girl.
First, the Dieter creature is a vile and totally depraved reprobate. And second, that sounds exactly like something Rush Limbaugh would say. America’s airwaves are occupied by the lowest sorts of miscreants. I’m not a talk radio fan and every month there are more reasons just to listen to NPR in the morning and some CD or other from my collection the rest of the day.

I don’t believe Fox for half a second and if some ‘witness’ is coming forward via the police report, now, nearly a month after the fact you have to wonder 1) why it took so long for the inept cops to mention it and 2) which racist organization has paid him (and the police) for his ‘testimony’ because at this point there’s no cause to believe it’s legitimate.
A witness we haven’t heard from before paints a much different picture than we’ve seen so far of what happened the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed. The night of that shooting, police say there was a witness who saw it all.
“The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said. Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red. The witness only wanted to be identified as “John,” and didn’t not want to be shown on camera. His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman. “When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point,” John said.
Oh sure- the slight little fellow jumped the fat guy and was getting the best of him, forcing the poor fat guy to shoot him. Pure unadulterated nonsense. Yet Fox, and the people who live and breath by every word that comes out of the mouth of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera will pounce on it and say ‘see, poor Zimmerman is the real victim’. Racists, happy to imagine a black kid being the victimizer rather than the provenly evil guy with a history of escapades of a questionable nature being a cold blooded murderer.
The Limbaugh advertising stampede is now officially an exodus. What was “only” 45 companies listed last week has expanded into a mass migration of 141 advertisers, according to an internal Premiere Radio Networks memo obtained by the Traffic Directors Guild of America. The memo lists 96 national companies that “specifically asked” not to have their ads play during the Rush Limbaugh Show—91 of them new additions to the list.
The companies also asked that their ads not play on shows hosted by other right-wing shock jocks, including Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage,ThinkProgress reports. Among those in the advertising stampede:
- American Express
- US Army
- US Postal Service
And the list goes on.
When Limbaugh has 0 advertisers except for Westboro Baptist, the North American Taliban Society, and the Harold Camping Ministry Center, then we’ll know that American business has some sense.

Al Jazeera has a perfectly scathing, perfectly phrased, perfectly accurate expose of the pill popping perv-
Rush Limbaugh’s recent meltdown – his three-day sex-crazed rant/attack against Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, whose congressional testimony made no mention of her own sex life – has a rich and strange collection of backstories to it, none of which include the sort of follow-on this story has had, complete with pseudo-apologies and the subsequent, ongoing loss of sponsors, which might even conceivably damage or imperil his career. Of those backstories, his own shady past as a pill-popping sex tourist is only the most lurid, not the most instructive. That only goes to underscore what’s already self-evident: that Limbaugh’s diatribes are heavily implicated in what psychologists call “projection” and the rest of know as “the pot calling the kettle black”.
Much more instructive, to get things headed in a more fruitful direction, is Limbaugh’s long history of similar sorts of vindictive, name-calling attacks. Media Matters has provided several illustrative lists, such as “Rush Limbaugh’s Decades Of Sexism And Misogyny“, “The 20 Worst Racial Attacks Limbaugh’s Advertisers Have Sponsored“, “Ten Of Limbaugh’s Worst Advertiser-Sponsored Attacks On The Poor” , “Limbaugh’s Advertisers Sponsored These Ten Attacks On Unions” – and a more all-purpose list – “15 Of The Worst Comments Limbaugh’s Advertisers Have Sponsored Since 2004“. These collections served to illustrate how continually Limbaugh resorts to similarly themed name-calling, thus reinforcing the point Media Matters made early on, that Limbaugh hadn’t just used a couple of “poorly chosen words” to describe Fluke, he had engaged in three days of prolonged haranguing including 46 separate attacks.
What’s more, they were all based on a lie, since Fluke never said anything about her own sex life. Fluke is a past president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and her testimony reflected that role – it was not about her, personally, but about the experience of other law students, individually and collectively, and about the broad impact of the denial of reproductive health care, not just with respect to preventing unwanted pregnancy. In fact, Fluke specifically cited other health impacts, such as cancer prevention.
Surprising in all this is the fact that he still has sponsors. But that’s easily explained- he has followers and those followers buy what he sells. Indicating only one thing- they are as immoral as he is.
Here, it’s reported that Rush (unsurprisingly) said something misogynistic:
Rush is down at least 36 advertisers, and radio insiders think they’re not coming back, so it’s audience preservation time for him. Since Sandra Fluke is a radioactive topic, he found another woman, Traci McMillan, whose book on the politics and economics of food inspired Rush to say:
What is it with all of these young single white women, overeducated—doesn’t mean intelligent.
My guess is that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have phrased it quite that way, Rick Santorum thought it was entertaining, and Newt Gingrich would call the act of cutting and pasting Rush’s words from yesterday’s transcript another example of how coastal elites are ruining this country.
There is one piece of good news for Rush: Ashley Madison offered to buy his canceled ad inventory. Ashley Madison is like OK Cupid for married people who want to cheat. Going from Geico, Citrix and Quicken to an adultery hook-up site in less than a week tells you all you need to know about the Rush’s near future on the radio.
It also tells you all you need to know about Limbaugh’s audience.

After all, if he can criticize a law student for contraceptive use, he’s liable to the same critique- so we need to know: are insurance dollars going to pay for his Viagra?
If Rush Limbaugh doesn’t want to absorb some of the cost of female contraception as a health insurance consumer, others are wondering: Why should we pay for Limbaugh’s Viagra? “We know” Limbaugh “has used Viagra, which is covered by medical insurance plans,” Dr. Nancy Snyderman points out on MSNBC.Limbaugh was detained in 2006 by Customs agents for a mislabeled bottle of the little blue pills crossing the border from the Dominican Republic. Limbaugh said at the time that they were for his personal use, even though a prescription for them was made out to his physician to “protect” his privacy, “given the potential embarrassing nature of Viagra,” according to a note from Limbaugh obtained by the Smoking Gun.
Snyderman also notes that Limbaugh has been married four times, and has no children, so “I assume he has used some form of contraception.”
Well not necessarily. He could just be infertile along with being impotent….

Why? Because anyone who attempts to drop the label ‘Prophet’ on a person like Rush Limbaugh is either as ignorant as a lump of dirt or a deceiver.
When the prophetic voice mutes itself the stones will clatter and shake. The sound is cacophonic and confusing, but the core of truth the prophets refuse to speak will throb its way out on the thudding stones. Rush Limbaugh proves it all.
First, who says prophetic voices are muted? Maybe they’re muted at the place where Henry panders to the mega-church ‘serve me, God’ crowd but in the rest of Christianity prophetic voices are alive and well.
Second, Rush Limbaugh isn’t a prophetic voice crying out to the world- he is a self serving narcotic addict who cares only to stir controversy and appeal to the far right wing of pseudo-Christianity.
Henry’s essay is an example of the worst sort of false-theology parading itself as legitimate. He’s either incompetent as an exegete of scripture or a deceiver.
