“Trying to reason with hurricane season.”

Conservative loudmouth Rush Limbaugh ranted about a funny Obama for President ad featuring HBO TV show “Girls” actress Lena Dunham, titled “First Time.” Yes, the same Rush Limbaugh who lost a ton of advertisers not too many months ago after calling Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a “slut.” Turns out college dropout Limbaugh didn’t fare well in that exchange.… [Read more]

After several of his large sponsors fled the scene under duress, Rush issued a half-arsed apology. Consumer money talked and sponsors walked. Hopefully, this isn’t the end of that, um, incident; I’m waiting for news that Clear Channel Communications, his corporate overlord, drops Rush on his rather ample arse.… [Read more]
If you can’t say something nice…
Authorities said a suspicious package was sent to the South Florida home of right-wing radio ‘personality’ Rush Limbaugh. They reported that the contents weren’t dangerous and didn’t contain hazardous materials. It turns out that the package contained materials for a business proposal that a fan and supporter didn’t make Rush aware of prior to shipping it to Rush’s home.… [Read more]
