My Dear America:
Well, Super Tuesday is finally here. Yay.
And while the conversations should be dominated by talk of the Republican Candidates for President battling it out all across the country, the conversation still seems to be mainly about Rush Limbaugh's rude and obnoxoius comments about Susan Fluke, A Georgetown Law Student who had the nerve to testify before a congressional hearing in favor of contraception.
Her reward for her audacity was to be called by Rush Limbaugh not only a "Slut" but also a "Prostitute." Mr Limbaugh also stated that she should have sex and put it on the World Wide Web.
Senator Al Franken said it best when he tagged Mr. Limbaugh as a "Big Fat Idiot" but this BFI has continued his lunatic fringe rants for many, many years now favoring the Republicans, defending every stupid thing that President Bush ever did and ranting and raving about how bad every thing was that President Obama has done.
Nothing seems to have been able to stop this Multi Millionaire Drug Addled Monster up to now. His "Dittoheads" (I would sibstitute SH for the beginning D in that word) follow his every rant and apparently say "Ditto Rush" to every maniacal thing he says.
But the truth is that Rush may have finally gone too far. Although Republicans have been timid in their reactions to Rush's comments none of them are being Dittoheads on this matter of calling a smart, sensible Law Student a prostitute. In addition Rush's sponsors seem to be rushing out the door at what must be, to Rush, an alarming rate. They are leaving or have left at such a rapid rate that Rush has even apologized. Translation, he has been forced to say he was wrong in this case because he was trying to be "humorous."
Hey Rush. What in God's name is so funny about calling anyone a Slut and a Prostitute?
Those of us on the right side of sanity may be hoping right now that Rush's days of being an American Demagogue may be over but I don't think we should be doing too much rejoicing yet. This BFI has sailed through other scandals with slimy ease and knowing Rush he will be continuing to paint himself as the Victim in this case instead of the Real Victim in this case, who to her credit, has made it clear that she does not accept Rush's half baked apology.
Good for her.
Living in the Land of The Free does have it's drawbacks. Certainly in many less than free Nations of the World a Super Critic of the Government would be short lived. But we live in America where the only thing that seems to be able to stop a Super Critic like Limbaugh is the sound of his sponsors slamming the door on him.
Unfortunately the price of being free in America is that you need to put up with Madmen like Rush Limbaugh spewing their poison over the airwaves. Would we want it any other way?
I Think Not.
