Rush Limbaugh is an ass. I doubt many people would argue that premise. Rush Limbaugh has been an ass for at least as long as there’s been a public figure named “Rush Limbaugh.”
About two weeks ago, even his fans began to have it with Rush’s assitude when he went on a three-day rant against private citizen and girl-next door type college student, Sandra Fluke, because she had the audacity to stand up for her reproductive and healthcare rights.
Since then, Limbaugh has lost nearly every single sponsor. His syndicator put his show on a two-week national commercial hiatus, although I’m not sure what the intent behind that is, exactly.
Rush, in the meantime, has been trying to spin his way out of it. First he apologized for two words from the three-day rant, “slut” and “prostitute.” That didn’t work. His sponsors kept fleeing. Then he blamed it on the liberals. That didn’t help.
Now, as his show is grasping for a lifeline, he’s blaming it on none other than the President. From the Daily Kos:
By the way, the movie Game Change, the HBO movie that premiered on Saturday night (that’s designed, once again, to castigate and destroy Sarah Palin all over again)? The same public relations firm representing Sandra Fluke represents Game Change. The same PR firm that handled Sandra Fluke’s episode is handling Game Change, and you know who it is? Anita Dunn, formerly of the White House! The Mao Tse-tung admirer, by her own admission. Anita Dunn, Obama’s former adviser, is the PR firm for the movie Game Change and for Sandra Fluke. It’s all part of a plan. It is not accidental. None of this stuff just happened. “Whoa, looky over there what just happened!” It’s all orchestrated.
The so-called Republican war on women is page two of the Democrat Party playbook. So they may well go back to it. They may very well convince themselves that the New York Times and Washington Post polls are wrong. They may ignore them. They may take a couple days off and then gin it all back up again. Who knows? But they’ll do something. It will be something along the order of, “This fill-in-the-blank Republican is the enemy of women, is the enemy of minorities, is the enemy of the poor; has got to be stopped, has got to be banned, has got to be shutdown.” The Democrat Party creates victims so that they can then portray themselves as heroes riding to the rescue.
Yes, it was Limbaugh who personally attacked Sandra Fluke. Yes, Republicans in state after state are voting for legislation that would set women back 50 years. None of that matters because it’s all a great big conspiracy by the President. Who says he’s not playing three-dimensional chess?
The truth is that Rush loves women. He loves them so much that he was given the honor of officially rating their bikini wearing abilities in the Miss America Contest of 2010.
“Now, how can I be anti-woman?” he asked. “I even judged the Miss America pageant.”
Oh, but he’s even more woman lovin’ than that. He has nothing but affection for the National Organization for Women (NOW). He even has a sweet little pet name for them, NAGs.
“I have affectionately referred to the NOW gang as the NAGs, the National Organization of Gals, for over 15 years,” Limbaugh said on Wednesday. “And the head NOW-gang babe was asked what she thinks about that yesterday on television after 15 years. Outraged! They are outraged!”
“I’m a huge supporter of women!” the radio host declared. “What I’m not is a supporter of liberalism. Feminism is what I oppose and feminism has led women astray. I love women. I don’t know where this gets started.”
“I love the women’s movement — especially when walking behind it.”
Rush, now you’re just tuggin’ at this little ole’ feminazi’s heart-strings.
