Sure it's classless, but no more so than Rush is. He does not deserve a place beside Twain or Truman, and if he is still a famous Missourian 50 years after his death, I shudder to think what Missouri will be like then,

Not at the Church of St Mary of Magdala.

The left is already caving. Look at this:

After Limbaugh, Maybe It’s Finally Time To Ignore The ‘Slut’ Slur
By Megan Gibson
March 8, 2012
Time - Newsfeed

Despite the blah blah blah in this article, the tenor is pretty obvious spin to cover up the message that lefties can't use the word "slut" to attack anymore because too many lefites also use the word.

This thing already backfired and if the backfire grows and Obama's super PAC actually returns Maher's cool million to quell the outrage the left itself stirred up, that will be a major PR disaster for Obama's campaign. But so is Maher in the current narrative.

They're facing the choice between bad and rotten right now, and retreating while thumping on their chest and crying victory seems to be the best strategy.

The Left Really Knows How To Treat A Lady (WARNING! ADULT CONTENT!)

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Meet teen Madeline McAulay, aka “psycho b**** c***” to the Left.

Just ask 16 year old girl Madeline McAulay:


Last week, following the intense North Carolina Primary, I decided to make a YouTube video regarding the passing of the NC Constitutional Amendment “to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.” I knew that posting this video was going to be controversial, but I had no idea how vulgar the responses were going to get.

How vulgar? You’ve been warned...


“Hey, you really seem like one stupid c**t. That being said, I’d still let you wrap yours lips around my c**k.” via UniversalHourglass


“This b**** is Psycho!” via TheAtheist79

There’s much, MUCH more. All for a 16-year-old girl.
Then there’s S.E. Cupp, a regular on MSNBC and Fox, an Ivy-League educated woman who leans right on most political issues. She’s no Ann Coulter—in fact, she’s barely an Ann Romney. Calm, cool and collected but—conservative. So this is what the Left does to her:
Posted Image
The first liberal to say “That’s Larry Flynt—not us!” will have to provide me with a link to you denouncing Flynt for offering millions to anyone digging up dirt on Republicans on behalf of Team Obama and the Democrats in the past. Chances are—you can’t.
Now watch this video of what an AFL-CIO leader does to a piñata with the face of SC Governor Nikki Haley:
And I assume you remember how Boston liberals treated Sarah Palin when she came to town in 2010?

Posted Image Posted Image

Interestingly, I couldn’t find any references in these stories to Gabby Giffords...
Click here for an excellent overview of the treatment of conservative women by liberal activists—both in the big-time media and down on the street. And I ask: Can you name any treatment of liberals women even close to this by the Right?
Yes—Rush Limbaugh’s attack on the free-birth-control activist. I agree. Over the top. And it stands out, too, because there are no other obvious, similar examples.
Of course, the best part of all this is that the same Lefties calling Sarah Palin a [ahem] and attacking teenaged girls are accusing the GOP of waging a “war on women.”
You know, if we had an actual, independent mainstream media, someone might actually do a story on this blatant hypocrisy.
=========================================

The tolerance of the left and the so called "Velvet Mafia" never ceases to amaze me.

Posted 24 May 2012 - 01:36 PM

Reviewing this thread for new material on the Whoring in Congressional Committees (one of the embedded commonly-hated things raised in this thread) I come across some material evidence of The Left at it again. I am mightily ticked off at The Left, let me tell you. Annoyed would not be too strong a word.

Let us look at what The Left has come up with in the context of this thread. I divide the tale into two 'competing narratives.' The caricature of the narratives is Objective: calibrated to achieve the full effect of Political Beer Goggles. Although most of us here are above average, handsome, kind and rational, we need to peer throught the holes into the fires of the furnace. We have to put on the goggles to even grasp what the hell the maniacs see when they peer out at the world.

Firstly, the left operatives try to squirm out of an exposure of their ugly tactics before Congress. They trotted out their ready-mix tart to the phoney committee meeting, pressed 'send' on their leftist smart phones and ten minutes later the Mainstream Media (MSNBC, etc) trots out the pre-ordained 'shock' response. Rush did nothing but point out hypocrisy. The sluts and whores and operatives of the left tried to add something to take away the stink of their own shoddy manipulations. Having had their machinations exposed ("Pelosi, bring out the slut. Let's raise irrelevant issues and cry foul at normal politics. Let's milk this. Tweety, Rachel, MSM guys, see the memo from last week. Plan C. Go."), they simply uncapped the "bogus outrage" button and began repeatedly, annoyingly thumbing it hard. Gah.

Secondly, the Christian-cult in control of Republicans pushed intrusive laws on women. They stacked a committee hearing on the Blunt Amendment. All committee members were male. All witnesses were men. All those testifying before the committee on Vaginas,Ovaries,Reproduction,Religion were men. Moreover, all the men testifying were cut-outs for the Christian nutters who are jammed nose-first into other people's crotches. Most American catholics want non-discriminatory access to birth control. For everyone. Not on the top-shelf of medical care reserved for Special Cases. Just plain fucking birth control covered by the same fucking policies that cover anti-fucking biotics. Only the nutter-wing of the Republicans gives a shit about your gonads.

-- Does anyone need to tell us or give us goggles to see which side of the bread the butter is on, in Objectivish terms? I think not. But.


Let me try this out on my friends here: 'Well, the left (I mean The Left) blew it. We saw their soiled knickers as they danced their slutty media dance after the Blunt hearings. They hijacked the hearings with their bullshit stunts. It was all planned in advance. The tired old slogans, the tired old socialist whores -- and the fresh-looking but equally-depraved young slut from Georgetown was rolled out like a pinata in a chair. A clear and present provocation to the Windbag.

Rush (whom I greatly admire for turning a drug-dependency into a PR triumph) is a side-issue. Love him or not (I clearly love him, coming to love him late, but loving him nonetheless), Rush does the same thing he has always done. He did nothing 'wrong' or different from any given Wednesday in his long career on Talk Radio. He talks, he rambles, he goes wild. He shows his tits. Like Beck, that is what they pay him for.

The rest is sewage trying to escape the lagoon, to outfall, and beyond -- not even fit for a salmon farm. I am sorry for having been briefly stunned by the left's (The Left's) theatrics, sound effects, fireworks and serried masses of robotic claqueurs in attendance. I was fooled, again. Like Pearson fooled everyone on earth. Fooled again, but by my own 'people' so to speak.

If you OLers know, with me, just how deformed were my ordinary perceptions before I became aware --with OL benevolence -- of my Brave New World upraising up here in the hellhole, if you know, with me, just how far I have come to seeing without my customary state-issue socialist slave goggles, you would be surprised. Or not.

So, there is not much more to say now.** My struggle to understand is over. I have simplified things to aid my understanding, and I have ripped the Canucki Lenses off my face. The Left plays dirty. There is no 'the right.' There are only individual Freedom-loving Americans battling a foul socialist plot to enslave each one before a final planetary doom.

The 'right' do not need to coordinate their activities -- unlike the rigid Five Year Plans of the left (sorry), they are free and want to stay that way, of many minds and shades of opinion and preferences and attitudes. The LEFT is the nazi-like goose-stepping horde of Them, unified, breathing from the same tank, wearing the same masks and goggles, the same Little Red Book burned in their brains. Every last one of Them, a Leftist.

So, all my earlier blabbering about independents, women, vaginas, yadda yadda?

Inoperative. Under advisement. Recalled for safety examination. Scottish Verdict. Whatever. That was then and this is now. We have a Party to get ready for. Like a good wedding, like a big fat gypsy wedding, this thing takes time and focus and committees and tears to prepare.

I must release myself from the Slave Harness as I have freed my sight by removing the goggles. I must totter toward November like a new colt. What fun to ignore the actual politicking of Them and focus on the snacks and drinks. With Carol at my side in the Party Chair, we move forward, calmly, like pinatas.

As I said in an earlier comment, the USA is the only game in town for social politics and libertarian issues. We have a front row but no blood spatters up here. We are fans. Fanatics even. And yet. And yet. Somehow our stunned overlords forgot about the Supreme Court and their Yoda-like minions. Along with our Royalist Slavery we now have pinko-libertarian 'rights' that clearly beat out the USA accross the board. To eternal shame or flames of remembrance or whatever.

This is a bug, not a feature, our Canadian liberties, and henceforth totally irrelevant to the needs and wants and desires of The Party, whether with vagina or not.

I now live for the Party. Not for The Left or the right. I am reborn.'

Yes, quite a reach to think I might re-read you and be cheered. Not up. But cheered. In the video version of the post that made you wonder, Michael, Jonathan's wish or Ninth, the screams of the Good Mrs Doctor made sexy, and the lavish sprawl of my comment made pink and glistening.

I use Diana's screams, the Pink Tresses of Jan Crouch, depth charges, and some sleazy Las Vegas show tricks to doll up my words.

I even put them in the voice of a calm, drunken Objective-ess.

And yet.

Whatever happened to Sandra Fluke? She seems to have vanished faster than you can say "Anita Hill." This despite her pro bono representation by a high-powered Washington PR firm (one of whose principals was Anita Dunn, former White House Communications Director). I guess you get what you pay for.

http://dailycaller.c...s-e-cupp-image/

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Sandra Fluke have condemned Hustler Magazine’s treatment of conservative commentator S.E. Cupp.

The most recent issue of Hustler reportedly features a fake image of Cupp with a phallus in her mouth, citing her opposition to abortion and Planned Parenthood as reasons for the image.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Sandra Fluke have condemned Hustler Magazine’s treatment of conservative commentator S.E. Cupp.
The most recent issue of Hustler reportedly features a fake image of Cupp with a phallus in her mouth, citing her opposition to abortion and Planned Parenthood as reasons for the image.

“S.E. Cupp is a lovely young lady who read too much Ayn Rand in high school and ended up joining the dark side,” the caption reads. “Cupp, an author and media commentator who often shows up on Fox News programs, is undeniably cute. But her hotness is diminished when she espouses dumb ideas like defunding Planned Parenthood. Perhaps the method pictured here is Ms. Cupp’s suggestion for avoiding an unwanted pregnancy.”

Wednesday afternoon both Planned Parenthood Action Fund (the self-described political arm of Planned Parenthood) and contraception activist Sandra Fluke tweeted in support of Cupp.

“Sexist attacks made against women like @SandraFluke and recently @secupp are disgraceful and cannot be tolerated http://bit.ly/KCz6VE,” PPAF tweeted.

“.@HustlerMag depiction of @secupp so offensive. Sexualization of female public figs attempts 2 limit them 2 being sexual figures & not more,” Fluke added.

Cupp responded to the image on Glenn Beck’s radio program Wednesday.

“It’s uncomfortable. I’m not in this business to talk about myself, I’m not in this business to talk about my character,” she said in part. “I‘d much rather be talking about Obama’s economic record or his foreign policy than myself and having to defend myself against [this photo].”
Hustler did not respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

The magazine clowns actually worked Ayn Rand into the issue...!!!!



Now I am sure that both Planned Parenthood and Sandy the Fluke are planning to lead a nationwide boycott of Hustler and demand that each advertiser withdraw their ads from Hustler...right?

Rush Limbaugh insists it’s not his fault that ad revenue has dropped at his flagship WABC radio station — and if his boss keeps saying it is, Rush just may pack up his megadittoes and leave.

 

In New York, that would very likely take him to WOR, which would create the biggest shakeup in city talk radio since WOR scooped up Bob Grant after WABC fired him in 1995.

 

RELATED: SANDRA FLUKE TO INTRODUCE OBAMA AT RALLY

Limbaugh’s contract with WABC expires at the end of the year.

 

Lew Dickey, the CEO of WABC parent company Cumulus, has said Limbaugh’s controversial comments have diminished ad revenue for the past year — and the slump remains a “residual hangover” for the station.

 
Frankly, I believe it is because of the two (2) horrendous hours by a first grade mediocre character called Giraldo...[sp?] and drop of Seah Hannity's because his show has become repetitive and boring. 
 
Hell I never listen to it at all unless he has a guest like Ann Coulter, or, the Cajun James Carville, one of the smartest campaign strategists that I ever met.

Adam,
 
I see something else entirely, but then again, I constantly look for subtexts. See this and think about how it may apply:
 
Michael Savage wins landmark case in federal court
May 6, 2013
WND 

 

In a ruling that is being compared to the case that led to free agency in baseball, a federal judge in California upheld an arbitration panel’s decision to release talk-radio host Michael Savage from a contract with his former syndicator, Talk Radio Network.
 
Savage’s lawyer, Dan Horowitz, called it a landmark case for talk radio.
 
“Michael is to talk radio what Curt Flood was to Major League Baseball,” Horowitz told WND, referring to the player who challenged baseball’s reserve clause, which kept a player bound to his team even after fulfillment of his contract.
 
Savage told WND the ruling “should free talent from the threats and extortionist behavior of ruthless Old-Hollywood types who can still be found in the corners of the radio industry.”
 
“For me, personally, it finalizes a struggle to perform for my audience in an atmosphere of freedom, not working on a ‘radio plantation,’” he said.

 

It's a hell of a coincidence that Rush might be thinking of moving on right as this decision came out.

 

I think Dickey is not going to be around too much longer if he loses Rush. And I think Rush will do just fine in the advertiser department wherever he goes. Probably better if he has greater control instead of the syndication suits.

 

Michael

Michael:

 

Actually I am not surprised at all and thanks for the info.  

 

I have been meaning to read the decision and now I will forthwith. 

 

I have followed Savage for years. 

 

We grew up in the same neighborhood and went to the same school.  We met a few times in different political campaigns.

 

Brilliant man.  Great talk show.  He is banned from entering Great Britain because he is on their terrorist watch list!
