A 30-year-old poses as a 23-year-old, chooses a Catholic University to attend at $65,000 per year and can not afford ALL the birth control pills she needs… so she wants the US taxpayers to pay for her rampant sexual activity. By all accounts she is banging it five times a day. She sounds more like a prostitute to me. She must have an gyno bill to choke a horse (pun intended). Slut was a softball.

Obama calls her and tells Sandra Slut Fluke that her parents should be so proud of her.
He’s a pimp.

Rabiner's quote is from Pamela Geller, one of the most hateful people I've ever encounter on the Internet. She makes Ann Coulter sound like a paragon of reasonable discourse.

Geller is one person who, if she suddenly died, I'd have a hard time living up to the standard I laid out in the Breitbart thread.

There's an acquaintance / casual friend I used to have, whom I no longer associate with, in part because of his support for Pamela Geller. That's about as clear as I can describe my feelings about that woman.

Today Rush issues an apology, but not without a sideways swipe at the left...Losing a bunch of advertisers makes it much, much more difficult to justify $35 million a year from his syndicator. It's hard out there for a pimp:

Quote

"I descended to [the left's] level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke," Limbaugh said. "I've always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity and independence on this program. Nevertheless, those two words were inappropriate. They were uncalled for. They distracted from the point that I was actually trying to make, and I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those two words to describe her. I do not think she is either of those two words. I did not think last week that she is either of those two words."

He goes on to say:

Quote

It was way beneath me, and way beneath you.
Nothing is beneath Rush. Nothing.

And just in case we're thinking that- for once- this is the right's politicians forcing Rush to apologize instead of them groveling at his feet...

Quote

Limbaugh claimed he was not forced into issuing an apology to Fluke, despite calls from prominent conservatives—including House Speaker John Boehner and GOP candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum—to do so, as advertisers of his show fled in droves.
"The apology was sincere and heartfelt ... pure, simple, heartfelt," he said. "All the theories, all the experts are wrong."

EDIT: Maybe so, but something tells me that he chose to slander the wrong private citizen/law student, and his lawyers have spoken just like his advertisers.

Well if he says it, it must be true. I mean, Rush wouldn't lie, would he?

(When I say something that I regret, I apologize for it immediately. If Limbaugh had done so, nobody would have these other theories, would they?)

The funny thing about saying that he shouldn't have used certain words is that he wasn't put on the spot, he wasn't caught off guard. It's his show. He brought her up and framed the entire subject. So to suggest that he didn't intend to call this woman a slut and a prostitute is beyond ridiculous.

Limbaugh said. "I've always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity and independence on this program."

CMK- you once started a thread here on TRS devoted to Limbaugh and his "very high degree of integrity" with the things he said. Pop it up, if you can remamber the one, so that people can be reminded of Rush's integrity.

Found it. A nice thread on Limbaugh's "integrity" from an examination of his racist content.
http://www.talkradio...out-his-racism/

Limbaugh "integrity": Calling President Obama "boy" "halfrican" "Oreo"

and some nice quotes of Rush's on air dedication to "integrity":

-- "Have you ever noticed how all composit pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"
---"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor sotr and practice robberies"
---[to a black female caller]: "Take that bone our of your nose and call me back"

None of this happens in a vacuum. 20 million people a week tune in for the crap. If this is Rush's attempt at on-air integrity, I'd hate to hear him when he wasn't making an effort.

I kid you not.

I don't know why these people don't understand that you take birth control pills, an IUD, the ring, or Depo, the exact same amount whether you have sex five times a day or five times a year.

So much it must be said as well for the objection to contraception being a religious objection, those comments on Ms. Geller's site clearly reveal it is all about control.

Wow.

Radio Station Cancels Limbaugh's Show


On a day when the number of companies fleeing from Rush Limbaugh has snowballed, the conservative talk radio personality's program is being immediately discontinued by a Hawaii-based station. Chris Leonard, the President and General Manager of New West Broadcasting, announced today that Limbaugh's program will no longer be broadcast on KPUA AM 670 in Hilo, HI.
In a written statement, Leonard said that Limbaugh's disparaging remarks about Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student who testified before the U.S. House of Representatives, "crossed a line of decency and a standard that we expect of programming on KPUA whether it is locally produced or a syndicated program like the Rush Limbaugh show."
KPUA is reportedly the first station to cancel Limbaugh's program in the wake of his controversial comments.

There's a very happy station manager at one of KPUA's competitors today.

I honestly do think all of this stuff will blow over. The only real lasting impact this has is in terms of Limbaugh's image, and that of talk radio overall. Even among people who weren't big talk radio fans, I think there was always a tier system in terms of how seriously people took the various hosts, and how (relatively) respectable they were. I mean, Savage and Levin made comments like this all the time and nobody cared, but they were second-tier players. Limbaugh is the Big Kahuna (to keep on the Hawai'ian theme) and with this incident, he has basically put himself in the same category with other "shock jocks", and lowered the reputation of his entire industry.

I have been reading and waiting but I now believe that Liberals are conditioned with a selective memory.

Ready for alittle memory lane you Alzheimer's patients???

Wasn't all that long ago you all were chuckling about Michele Bachmann being called a bitch on national tv.

Michelle Malkin receives a large dose of Liberal tolerance from a Lib jounalist, and I use that term loosely, who thought she would be a great hate F@@@. And of course Olbermann who refers to her as a bag of meat with lip stick.

That was really funny, anyone of you demanding a boycott yet????

How about Big Ed Shultz, referring to a Fox News female commentator as a SLUT, OHHH NOOO.
Anyone demand a boycott then????

Guess the selective outrage is a Liberal trait as well.

How about Carrie Prejean? Any Liberal think she was treated better or worse than Fluke?

And let's not forget the Big Obama supporter, HBO host and foul mouthed, when it involves conservative women, BILL MAHER.

Ole BIll has referred to conservative women as Sluts, Cunts, Twats and generally every demeaning slur possible.

Any outrage on the Liberal Left who are ohhh sooo concerned about women???

Any boycott of sponsors to Ole Bill's show, you Lefties who won't tolerate hateful slurs???

Generally the selective outrage is stomached by the Right as a matter of course. That's just the way the media/Liberals operate. But really this group of comments implies a level of stupidity that rivals Frum's Forum.

sdspringy:

Schultz was suspended and gave an on-air apology.

Bill Maher is on cable and he criticizes Obama plenty. He doesn't have any noticeable sponsors outside of HBO letting him do his show.

Olbermann would routinely get suspended and no longer works for MSNBC.

Carrie Prejean did not deserve to be called a bitch by Perez Hilton simply for her opinion on same-sex marriage given during a beauty pageant being something he didn't agree with.

But I wouldn't really say a woman being called a bitch by a catty pageant judge/blogger is the same thing as a national talk show host with millions of listeners spending 3 days on his top-rated radio show making lurid and baseless accusations about Sandra Fluke's sex life just because she advocated insurance coverage for contraception at a Congressional hearing.

SD Springy also gets confused about a key issue. Women liberals have never liked any of these approaches. If you want to call for a boycott of Matt Taibibi, go ahead, I'll sign the petition. I think he's a sexist idiot and am regularly offended by his smarmy self-satisfaction. But here is the thing, other than Bill Mahrer, none of them are as popular as Rush Limbaugh, and to steal a line from Mr. Frum, none are feared by Dems.


As to His Girl Friday's point:

Advertisers lost are up to 12, and two stations - just heard on the tv.

http://www.usatoday....58/1?csp=34news

Quote

At least a dozen companies, including AOL, Allstate and Sears, said Monday that they would no longer advertise on Limbaugh's show, which reaches an estimated 15 million listeners weekly. Tractor maker John Deere, solar panel maker Verengo Solar and postage website Stamps.com ran ads during Monday's broadcast, as aired on WABC radio in New York, the largest station carrying the show, but the three companies said Monday afternoon that they would no longer advertise.

...

Musician Peter Gabriel, whose Sledgehammer played during Limbaugh's show, told the show host to stop using his music.

sdspringy's post seems to be long on insults and low on logic. I'd rip it to pieces but again, that was his first post in two months and was obviously just intended as drive-by flame-bait. Not worth the bother.

As for the advertisers, I think what we're seeing now is a lemming effect: some of them are quitting because others quit, afraid that if they don't do something when others did, they'll look bad. I bet some of them started out going "well, it's just Rush being Rush", and only realized this was different when other companies bailed. Whoever was first, that was the real leader and deserves great credit for this.

Weird, never heard that before.

Now if Chrissy Hynde asked him to stop using her theme for his iconic bumper music, that would be something. :D ETA: "According to Rush Limbaugh, he pays royalties each year to BMI to use this song. Chrissie Hynde never said she didn't want him to use it. She is no fan, but her parents are and that is why she has allowed him to use it.(5) Hynde receives $100,000 per year from Limbaugh for use of the song, which she donates to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)."
