Romney has a better Iran Plan than Obama’s except that IT’S THE SAME PLAN!

Exactly the same, only different

Mitt Romney has been going to town frightening anyone who will listen about how President Obama’s plan to deal with the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran is endangering the USA. He’s been saying on the stump, “If Barack Obama gets re-elected, Iran will have a nuclear weapon.” We can’t risk that, he said, so we must be afraid enough to vote for Mitt Romney.

So, what is Mitt Romney’s plan to deal with Iran? How will he keep them from getting a nuclear weapon?

He’ll do exactly the same thing President Obama is doing.

To rein in Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, Mitt Romney says he would conduct naval exercises in the Persian Gulf to remind Iran of American military might.…

A second radio station drops Rush Limbaugh’s Hate Show

Another one bites the dust..

A second radio station has dropped Rush Limbaugh’s Hate Show. It’s WBEC 95.9FM/1420AM out of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Their statement is worth a read:

A commercial radio station in Pittsfield, Massachusetts _ 96.9 [sic] FM, WBEC – says it is dropping the Rush Limbaugh show in the wake of Limbaugh’s comments on contraception last week. […]

WBEC’s General Manager Peter Barry says his station hadn’t yet lost any local advertisers as a result of Rush’s comments, and no more than a handful of callers had voiced complaints. But he says over the years he and station staff have grown increasingly uncomfortable with Limbaugh’s rhetoric.

Santorum campaign protest rally outside Mich GOP HQ for that ONE delegate draws three. People.

The never-ending Clown Show™

As I wrote about yesterday, Rick Santorum is fighting tooth and nail for that one Michigan delegate that they believe was inappropriately awarded to Mitt Romney. So, they staged a protest rally outside the headquarters of the Michigan Republican Party (MRP) headquarters.

It drew three. Not three busloads. Not three dozen.

Three. People.

These Republicans could sure learn a thing or two about how to protest, amirite?

Only three people showed up to a rally at Michigan GOP headquarters in Lansing to show their dissatisfaction with the party’s allocation of delegates between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum following the Feb.

Rush Limbaugh says he called Sandra Fluke a slut & a prostitute because “he became like the left”

Oh, brother…

First, I want to say a bit about why this whole Rush Limbaugh thing has me so incensed. I have a daughter who is just about Sandra Fluke’s age. She’s in graduate school and a highly-intelligent young woman.

And she’s on the pill.

I know this because she told me about it. We have a good relationship and, though I gulped when the conversation about it started, I know she’s going to be sexually active and that’s not only fine by me, I hope she has fun. She should have fun. Sex is fun, especially when you’re young. It’s not shameful or something to be ashamed of.…

Predictions: Super Tuesday

Time to ship the Santorum Surge to the Smithsonian’s collection of Unfortunate Metaphors

With Eric Cantor, Tom Coburn and John Ashcroft’s endorsements, Barbara Bush making robocalls and the Drudge Report ignoring the biggest story of the campaign, the GOP establishment is determined to make Super Tuesday Mitt Romney’s big night. And it will probably work.

I think the story of the night will be that Rick Santorum would have won Ohio if he’d been on the ballot all over the state. He’s not. Instead, Mitt will take most of the delegates and Gingrich will do second best.…

Peter Gabriel hammers Rush Limbaugh for using his music during the attack on Sandra Fluke

Sledge!

Peter Gabriel has learned that it was his song “Sledgehammer” that was being played during the segment of Rush Limbaugh’s Hate Show where he said that women like Sandra Fluke who get their contraceptives paid for by their insurance company should film themselves having sex and put it on the internet.

Peter Gabriel is not amused. He issued this statement on Monday afternoon on his Facebook page:

Peter Gabriel has asked that this response be published when he found out that his track ‘Sledgehammer’ has been used on the Rush Limbaugh show:

Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary attack on Sandra Flute.

It’s still working

Two more national advertisers have pulled their advertising dollars from Rush Limbaugh’s odious hate show: AOL and Tax Resolution.

AOL, parent company of the Huffington Post, became the eighth advertiser to pull its ads issuing this statement:

At AOL one of our core values is that we act with integrity. We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values. As a result we have made the decision to suspend advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Radio show.
