Take Bill Maher for instance. He came out and defended rush yesterday, and he admonished rush's advertisers for pulling out of his show.
"Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting," Maher tweeted. "Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout." [Source]
Bill, with all due respect, STFU! Who cares if we look bad for not accepting his apology? Do you really believe that rush's apology was sincere? Give me a break!
And do you really believe that republicans would not be doing the same thing if rush was a crazy talking left wing radio host? If you believe that I have a beautiful antique bell in my hometown with a slight crack on the side that I would love to sell you.
Rush is free to say what he wants, and his sponsors have every right to pull out if they find what he says offensive. I have two words for you: Dixie Chicks. Do you remember what the right did to them? Bill, in case you haven't heard, rush says that he doesn't care. It's business as usual over at Oxycotin central.
This Mr. Nice Guy act that you liberals like to play makes me sick to my stomach, and it's why wingnuts always have the upper hand in this political tug of war here in A-merry-ca. Liberals always back off and give away the upper hand when they don't have to.
"Limbaugh told his listeners today that "everything's cool," noting that many of the advertisers that have yanked their support are local and thus have little if any impact on the show's revenues.
"Nobody is losing money here, including us, in all this," Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday. "[The advertisers] are not canceling the business on our stations. They're just saying they don't want their spots to appear in my show. We don't get any revenue from 'em anyway. The whole effort is to dispirit you."
The conservative commentator estimated that as many as 18,000 companies could be advertising on any one of the 600 or so stations that broadcast his three-hour radio program." [Source]
"Everything is cool" rush, because your political enemies are defending you now.
This is how it works in A-merry-ca. At the end of the day, left or right, it doesn't really matter; we are all just one big happy family. Frankly, it makes me want to puke.
Flipper won last night, but I see that he is still flipping.
"It didn't get much notice amid the buildup to Super Tuesday. But after conservative outcry over his support for raising the minimum wage, Mitt Romney quietly reversed his position this week.
"There's probably not a need to raise the minimum wage," the Republican front-runner told CNBC's Larry Kudlow on Monday.
As recently as January, Romney said he was in favor of a hike in the minimum wage. "My view has been to allow the minimum wage to rise with the CPI [Consumer Price Index] or with another index so that it adjusts automatically over time," he told a staffer for a labor-backed group that supports a raise. And he confirmed that stance last month, telling reporters: "I haven't changed my thoughts on that."
Romney took the same position as governor of Massachusetts, an office he held from 2003 to 2007, and as a candidate for president in 2008." [Source]
Finally, I guess President Obama really did attend Harvard after all. Unless that tape was doctored and someone did some fancy editing to stick that lanky black dude in there; that looks a lot like Barack Obama to me.
Wingnuts are calling this tape a "bomb shell" because it shows a young Obama speaking at a law school rally (BTW, no teleprompter). I looked at the tape, and I am really trying to find the smoking gun that says that O is some kind of secret Muslim who wants to do harm to A-merry-ca. But unless there are some secret signals in the video that I am not picking up, I just don't see it.
Just keep digging wingnuts, I am sure that you will find something (think of a black bogeyman like Willie Horton) to scare your base before November.
