Talk radio's leading misogynist, Rush Limbaugh, called Sandra Fluke, the woman who the Republicons refused to allow to testify at the hearing on women's health, a "slut" and a "prostitute" yesterday.

"What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex. What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex." Link 1


This is not the only misogynistic statement Limbaugh has made this week. Female NASCAR driver, Danica Patrick, who had supported the Obama Administration's position on contraception rule. During his show on Monday Rush said,

"She was talking, Danica Patrick was talking about Obama’s contraception ruling. She was not speaking in general though it applies generally… She said, 'I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for America.'” … What do you expect from a woman driver? I don’t know why everybody was so shocked."


These quotes are only the two latest of many misogynistic statement Limbaugh has made. Link 2

"The right of voting for representatives is the primary right by which other rights are protected. To take away this right is to reduce a man to slavery, for slavery consists in being subject to the will of another, and he that has not a vote in the election of representatives is in this case." Thomas Paine:
Dissertation on First Principles of Government (July 1795)

That's what one would expect from a drug addled gas bag. A guy that vacations in countries where he can get underage sex workers shouldn't be judging the lives of others. The guy is such a fool that I have to question the sanity of anyone that believes a word he says.

I support Rush Limbaugh's right to free speach.


But I don't care a damn about what he has to say.

Unfortunately I know someone (someone I have to interact with on a regular basis), that listen to Limbaugh, everyday. Makes me cringe to think about it.

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

I get to listen to the radio only while in my car.


I listen to Limbaugh on occassion for comic relief. 


Otherwise, I tune in either to the local heavy metal station, or NPR.

I wonder if the man is suffering from some manner of mental degeneration.


He is getting progressively outrageous as the years go by.
