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.

The ninth company was Tax Resolution who tweeted “We have decided to join other advertisers and suspend our sponsorship of The Rush Limbaugh Show” this morning.…

Santorum continues fight for that one Michigan delegate – UPDATED

Dele-gate

Honestly, I never thought that Michigan GOP Primary Clown Show™ would still be the gift to Democrats that keeps on giving a week later but, well, it is.

Though the state’s primary was almost a week ago, the Rick Santorum campaign is continuing to dispute the primary’s results. The campaign has taken their fight over the way the Michigan Republican Party apportioned two of the state’s at-large delegates to the Republican National Committee.The campaign is also organizing a rally to be held later today in front of the Michigan Republican headquarters in Lansing. Santorum supporters will call on Michigan GOP leaders to reconsider their decision to award both the party’s statewide delegates to Mitt Romney.

Nolan Finley is shocked – SHOCKED! – that union members support President Obama

It’s just SHOCKING!

Nolan Finley, editorial page editor of The Detroit News is positively astonished that the UAW and other unions will be supporting President Obama’s reelection campaign.

Now we know how United Auto Workers President Bob King will repay Barack Obama for holding the union harmless from the Detroit automakers’ bankruptcy: He’ll provide the ground troops for the president’s class war.

The Daily Caller blog says it found evidence that King and the UAW are behind the “99 Percent Spring,” which aims to train and deploy 100,000 Americans for “non-violent direct action” in the months leading up to November’s presidential election.

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.…
