LOLGOP Winner: Rush Limbaugh

You’re sorry

Congratulations to Rush Limbaugh, winner of the first LOLGOP.

Rush loves attention. But he may have overdosed this week.

You know that last week Rush spent three shows calling law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” because Ms. Fluke chose to assert in public that birth control is part of basic women’s health care.

The idea of a young woman with a healthy, unashamed sex life apparently drove Rush insane. He ranted and raved about how he was paying for this woman’s pleasure betraying his obliviousness at how both insurance and reproduction work. (No, Rush. You don’t need extra birth control for more sex.…

Proflowers.com pulls its ads from Rush Limbaugh’s hate show

It’s working

Proflowers.com just posted this on their Facebook page:

PROFLOWERS STATEMENT
At ProFlowers, our mission is to delight our customers with fresh and long lasting flowers, and that is our singular focus each and every day. We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view or opinion as our employees and customers are as diverse as the USA. Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.

I would hope that they would take the “susp” out of this statement and make it a firm “ProFlowers has ended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.”

Still, it’s a solid step in the right direction.…

Rush Limbaugh: Apology NOT accepted

I don’t think that word means what you think it means

This is what Rush Limbaugh calls an “apology” to Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke:

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.

How Drudge Saves Mitt

How Mitt Romney hides his Mitt Romney-ness

Imagine clicking on the DrudgeReport and seeing this:

MITT ROMNEY SUPPORTED INDIVIDUAL MANDATE FOR OBAMACARE

It would be the end of Mitt Romney’s campaign. Why?

Last year, as pundits wondered how the man who implemented an universal health care plan nearly identical to Obamacare could win the GOP nomination, Mitt Romney had an idea.

He argued: See, I’m really all about states rights. My solution worked for Massachusetts—with tremendous federal aid—but because of the 10th amendment, it shouldn’t be implemented in all 50 states.

Mitt was so sure this was a sound argument that he put together a PowerPoint and came to the University of Michigan to present it to a room filled of people who look like Mitt Romney.…

My letter to Proflowers.com about their support of Rush Limbaugh – UPDATED

Take action. Take action NOW.

This past Valentines Day, I spent over $50 with Proflowers.com to buy my wife two dozen multi-colored roses. It was our tenth Valentines Day together and I wanted to do something extra special for her.

This is the last of my money that Proflowers.com will ever see until they discontinue advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show. They are issuing platitudes on Twitter saying things like, “We would like to assure you that we do not endorse the views expressed by Rush Limbaugh and we appreciate your feedback” and “We understand your concerns and I will ensure that your feedback is communicated to the producers of that show”.…

More of Rush Limbaugh’s remarks re: making women using contraception post sex videos online

Here there be monsters

As I wrote about yesterday, Rush Limbaugh has finally lost it and gone completely off the rails. He has suggested that women that use contraceptives paid for by their insurance companies post videos of themselves having sex so that all of us can watch.

But you know what? That was actually only part it. Here are some excerpts from the transcript so that you can see what I mean. I won’t link to it so you don’t have to worry about accidentally clicking through to his site.

Before we get started, let’s be very clear what this odious pig is doing: he’s demonizing women that want access to contraception as slutty whores.…

Troy Mayor Janice Daniels gets smacked down on multiple fronts, recall language approved

Let me go crazy, crazy on you…

Homophobic tea partier and Troy, MI mayor Janice Daniels has demonstrated her woo-hoo inanity in such a public fashion recently that she’s beginning to get into a hole too deep to dig out of.

The hilarity began when, on January 7th, in violation of city council rules limiting discussion by council members on single issue to five minutes, she read a rambling and nearly comical screed ranting against the transit center the council had recently approved.

Here’s a sampling. Hang on to your hats.

As the duly elected Mayor of the City of Troy, Michigan, I feel compelled to have my opposition to the construction of what is called the Troy Multi-Modal Transit Center project read into the Public Record so that the citizens of Troy, Michigan will have this information available to them for all time.…

Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney expose their hypocrisy on use of government money

Hypocrisy, thy name is ‘Santorum’. Wait. It’s ‘Romney’. No, it’s BOTH!

Both Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney rant and rave about the use of government funds for all sorts of things. However, neither has much of a leg to stand on in this regard.

Rick Santorum took federal funds to home school his kids.

As he presses for the conservative votes he needs to overtake GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum is hammering away at the role state and federal governments play in running schools.Santorum plays up how he and his wife have home-schooled their seven children and says parents should be the ones responsible for educating their kids.…
