The childless, four-times-married Rush Limbaugh is a loathsome, misogynistic pig. If this were some aberration in Limbaugh’s behavior, fair-minded people might be tempted to accept his grudging and very limited apology. But it is nothing new. This is how he has “entertained” day after day for years. He doesn’t debate. He doesn’t inform. He vilifies, insults, smears, slanders, distorts and misleads. Rush is a schoolyard bully who specializes in picking on girls – or “feminazis,” as he loves to call them. Limbaugh has led the way in destroying civility in politics. It’s bad enough that his overbearing pseudo-patriotism has been emulated by other right-wing radio and TV commentators; worse is the fact he has become the oracle of the dominant wing of the Republican Party.

The numbers are at the link. His statement follows:

“For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week.  In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.”

I find it really rich that Limbaugh would consider union workers pampered and overpaid. This, coming from a mega-millionaire whose idea of “work” is to sit on his fat ass in his air-conditioned studio, spewing lies into a microphone for a few hours a day. No wonder Limbaugh pulls down hundreds of millions of dollars from anti-union corporate America. Memo to Limbaugh: you don’t have a f*cking clue as to what real work is. I’m talking about the sort of physically demanding work done every day by millions of ordinary blue collar union workers across America.

Colbert on Rush Limbaugh: “Every time he’s slept with a woman, he’s had to slip her a pill first.” Scathing.

As we await news on how the the NBA will handle LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, there is no shortage of Republicans defending him. Rush Limbaugh lashed out calling him a “typical” democrat.

“This guy is a big Democrat. The only reason he’s in trouble right now is he did not give enough money to Obama. This guy was gonna get a leadership award from the NAACP L.A. chapter. The second one. This guy is a typically Hollywood Democrat.”

Donald Trump claims Sterling was setup by his “girlfriend from hell” speaking on Fox News last Sunday.

“She’s called the girlfriend from hell, but what he said was terrible and despicable and very strong action is going to be taken. There’s no question about it,” Trump said of Sterling’s girlfriend. “She’s a terrible human being and he gave horrible answers and disgusting answers.”

After so many segments stating racism isn’t a rampant problem anymore, Bill O’Reilly claimed “It’s An Individual Problem … Not A Country Problem.”

The fact as Rush Limbaugh sees it is simple. Democrats are trying to make Republicans look like dishonorable criminals. Well, Rush, here’s the thing. You ARE dishonorable criminals. We don’t have to make you look that way. All we have to do is get the hell out of the way and let the people finally see it for themselves. Over and over again as Republicans lose their grasp on positions of power the curtain begins to fall on the once great and powerful Oz. Want to see more of it? I sure do. And you can rest assured that when it happens that Rush Limbaugh will be there to whine about it from his own little broadcasting cubicle.
