Rush Limbaugh Bleeding 3 More Advertisers Over Fluke Slut Slurs

From Denny:  This week the Rush Limbaugh show bled three more advertisers: Kohler, Fisher Nuts and Reputation.com, an online reputations management and Internet privacy service.  The tally is now up to 145.  Many were regional and local advertisers.  He still enjoys 9 permanent national advertisers, though 3 seem shaky.

It's been a month since the uproar push back from women started with Limbaugh throwing out his slut, prostitute and whore slurs of Sandra Fluke in a three day diatribe that infuriated the nation.

For 53 of Rush Limbaugh's smear attacks on Sandra Fluke, go to this link on youtube. (If you can stomach hearing it all.)

One amusing development is that this uproar forced Limbaugh to hire a crisis consultant.  "Ya think?"

Jon Stewart Mocks The Trayvon Martin Hoodie Threat

Trayvon Martin Protest - Sanford

From Denny:  Jon Stewart lampoons hoodie wearing supportive journalists and politicians trying to join the trending and popular national conversation demanding a proper investigation into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, a young black man deemed suspicious as he walked through a neighborhood wearing a hoodie.  Amazingly, without the public outcry and national pressure, the police had no intention of investigating the crime.

Trayvon's Neighborhood Watch stalker decided the teenager was "suspicious" just because he was wearing a hoodie and walking in his neighborhood.  It turns out that Trayvon was returning home to his parents after visiting the grocery store.  He was minding his own business while carrying a soft drink, a bag of candy and talking on a cell to his girlfriend.

You really do get tired of all this idiotic racial profiling like evidenced by this stalker, an obsessed member of his Neighborhood Watch.  Hell, let's send the entire American public to the CIA school for reading basic body language and micro facial expressions for the utterly clueless.

Then, maybe folks would finally be able to accurately recognize who really is and who totally is not a threat to them.  That type of proper education would go a long way to turning down the national political temperature.

Rush Limbaugh: 3 Funny Colbert, Stewart Videos, Late Nite Jokes

From Denny:  Did you hear?  Today another advertiser turned tail and ran away from Rush Limbaugh.  This time it was Kohler, manufacturer of those stylish faucets and other kitchen and bath fixtures.  That makes 143 advertisers, with about 9 left in his smelly pervert corner.

Of course, I'm sitting in a diner having lunch today in the red state of Louisiana, with the channel tuned to the ridiculous Fox News, and who is featured?  

You guessed it, Fat Boy Blowhard Rush Limbaugh.  The amusing thing is that the love affair with Fox News and Rush Limbaugh is waning even here in the deep South.  "Can I Tell Ya?" that the only person watching the screen was the liberal blogger in the room.  Everyone else was treating Rush like he is so last year fashionista.

WTF? New York Times 1 Of 10 Still Advertising On Rush Limbaugh This Week?

From Denny:  Can you believe it?  This newspaper is supposed to be the bastion of America's best journalism and they have been advertising on the Rush Limbaugh talk radio show.  Worse, they were still advertising this week after all that has happened.  What are they?  Brain dead?

It was bad enough the New York Times went to their petty "You only get to view 20 articles for free a month, bitch, unless you are a paid subscriber" attitude.

This past week they kicked it up a notch to "You only get to view 10 articles for free a month, You Big Bitch, You Whore, You Slut unless you are a paid subscriber" attitude.  New York Times management must be on Self Destruct Drugs.  What is it?  A prescription from their Fox News buddies?  Why would they so cavalierly alienate half of the nation and the world: women?

Have you noticed how all those who have suspended their advertising are making these ridiculous claims and press statements that they didn't know how their ads were being placed?  Come on.  Who believes that story?  Own it, you corporate cowards.

Caustic Christians Promoting Hate Endorsed By GOP Candidates

From Denny:  A Louisiana pastor, affiliated with the Rush Limbaugh Hate Merchant class, introduced Rick Santorum at his church when the Republican campaigned here in my town of Baton Rouge.

Of course, my fellow Democrats across the nation erupted in outrage.  I yawned at the fist-pounding rhetoric reminiscent of Nikita Khrushchev pounding his shoe against President Kennedy in the 1960's.  Apparently, shoe slapping is a popular anger release in many cultures.

Southern Baptist Pastor Dennis Terry said when he introduced Sen. Santorum:  "I don't care what the liberals say, I don't care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation...There is only one God and his name is Jesus. I'm tired of people telling me that I can't say those words.. Listen to me, If you don't love America, If you don't like the way we do things I have one thing to say - GET OUT. We don't worship Buddha, we don't worship Mohammad, we don't worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God's son Jesus Christ."

Caustic Christians are so far removed from what Jesus Christ taught that I'm immune to their constant propaganda because it sounds like the ravings of a mad man.  Think current mad man like former Fox News conservative talk show host, Glenn Beck, who is clearly in need of medication to restore him to a sound mind.

Think of the ravings of the above quote from Dennis Terry.  Clearly, he wants to control what Americans think, feel and how we worship.  This country was founded upon religious freedom for all, not just Christians.  And, no, Mr. Terry, this liberal Louisiana journalist blogger is not leaving.  Neither is the rest of the country who knows what you said was erroneous at best and cruelly unacceptable at worst.  Get used to your neighbors; we are all different, with different ideas, different religions: one America.

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Fun St. Patricks Day Facts To Ponder While You Swill Green Beer: From Denny:  Mardi Gras just happened last month, and, well, Lent can be a dull affair while we are waiting for Easter.  So, why not spice it up with some St. Patrick's Day frivolity and celebration?

South Louisiana is primarily Catholic and we like our champion demon-chasing warrior saints. Honoring him is serious business.

Here in Louisiana we celebrate with none other than a St. Patrick's Day Parade, complete with official bead-throwing and green beer freely flowing.

Since all good holy days have a serious component along with the feasting here's some brain food to feed you too.  Be sure to check out my other St. Patrick's Day posts at the end of this post.  Lots of interesting historical trivia, quotes, poems, Irish blessings and funny thoughts too.

Can The President Control Gas Prices? Yes, If He Learns How

From Denny:  As usual this White House gets things as ass backwards as the backward Republicans by just skimming the surface of political issues instead of drilling down into the details to achieve success and truly move the needle.

The Obama White House goes at everything from a frontal assault, never considering good old-fashioned guerrilla warfare, something women well understand and have practiced out of necessity for centuries.

Getting gas prices down to normal has not been a priority for this White House for three years and, now, years of ignoring the obvious has backfired.  Americans are furious at the lack of inaction and the high prices as evidenced by the recent polls.

Breaking: ALL Rush Ads Suspended. 140 Advertisers Abandon Limbaugh, Conservative Hosts Too

From Denny:  Breaking news at 9:00 PM:  ALL national advertising for the Rush Limbaugh show has been suspended for two weeks.

Keep up the pressure on the advertisers.  Right now this looks like an attempt to cool down the national temperature so they can return to business as usual.  Don't count on it, Good Ol' Boys Network.

There is nothing like a woman scorned.  American women are fed up with the mean-spiritedness of GOP talk show hosts aimed squarely at all women.

During the past two weeks women, all across the nation, took measures to let national advertisers know loud and clear they will not purchase their products.  Utilizing social media, the internet and blogging proved to be quite effective for a relentless campaign in real time.

As a result of the campaigns of liberal groups emailing and phoning in their complaints to the various targeted companies, more advertisers fled the controversy.  By Friday when I was posting about this advertiser runaway it was 50 companies.  This Monday morning it was 98 companies.  By nightfall the tally grew to 140 advertisers abandoning the Rush Limbaugh ship and other conservative talk show hosts.  There are only 350 advertisers on the entire Premiere Radio Networks for a variety of shows.

Dennys Global Politics: Afghanistan: Soldier Killed Civilians. Defund The Army, End The War Now: From Denny:  With Republicans so fond of pleasing their puppeteer war profiteers, they now find themselves in a quandary.  You see, the Republicans have boxed themselves into a corner, and, with it being an election year, they are cooked.

Republicans are big on deficit plans no matter how unrealistic.  Now they are faced with reducing the size of the active Army troops to the point the military can no longer run a two-front - or soon to be multi-front - war.  Another 100,000 ground troops will have to be slashed to meet the criteria of the $1.2 trillion budget cuts.

Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno whined to members of the Senate Armed Services Committee about his situation.  However can he secure his status to retire at a high pension and then acquire that all-coveted position of newly found wealth with his handler lobbyists and crappy think tanks?

Supposedly, it is the failure of the lawmaker supercommittee to agree on a deficit-reduction plan that caused this hardship for the Army.  But is it really?

International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World

From Denny:  Women are in crisis around the globe this year - from the Middle East to Europe to America.  For the Middle East it is about torture, malicious prosecution, unjust imprisonment and the selling into prostitution and slavery of both women and their children.

For America it is about dealing with the Hate Merchants women are expected to shrug off and endure as it contributes to domestic abuse, unequal pay and hiring in the work place and vicious gang rape in our military.  In Europe women are dealing with a deep economic crisis that is rocking the foundations of society, robbing hope for the next generation's prosperity.

Today is meant to celebrate the achievements and progress of women on a global scale.  It began 100 years ago in 1911 and was first celebrated in four European countries, drawing thousands of supporters in rallies.

By the decade of the 1970's the IWD gained momentum in the United States, expanding after 1975 when the United Nations created March 8th as the official date.  Since then, IWD has been the marking point for creating awareness for various women's issues from voting rights to the world health crisis of AIDS.

Dennys Global Politics: Egypt: Revolution Loses Meaning As Women Denied Rights, Role in Society

Dennys Global Politics: Egypt: Revolution Loses Meaning As Women Denied Rights, Role in Society: From Denny:  Egypt held so much hope for the world when the Arab Spring broke out last year, toppling the regime.

Then reality set in.  The very women that protected the men who marched, the very women who gave medical aid and money to help the revolution, were turned upon and denied their respect and freedom.

The protesters took it all and gave nothing in return by denying women a seat at the table while they restructured the national government.  The former male protesters and the Egyptian military council refused the concepts of generosity, kindness, partnership and equality.  To the women, the protesters and the military are no different than the regime:  all deny freedom and equal rights to women.

Rush Limbaugh: Who Are Still Running Ads? 49 Companies Left

Rush Limbaugh - Caricature

From Denny:  As Rush Limbaugh denies his advertisers are leaving like rats off a sinking ship, to date there are 49 companies, two radio stations and one advertising agency no longer willing to place ads with his show.

There are also some porn industry sites that have stepped up to support their fellow Pervert in Chief Limbaugh.

Check out the perverts stepping up to advertise on Limbaugh's show.  Perverts support other perverts:

SeekingArrangement: bills itself as "the world's largest sugar daddy and sugar baby dating website."

Ashley Madison: online "dating" website "willing to step into the void left by other advertisers." And their company philosophy as stated on their site is "Life is too short.  Have an affair."

Here is the amusing but desperate denial of Limbaugh about the fleeing advertisers:  "Everything is fine on the business side.  Everything's cool.  There is not a thing to worry about. What you're seeing on television about this program and sponsors and advertisers is just incorrect."

Yeah?  Below is first the list of those advertisers crazy enough to still advertise with him.  The second list is the growing column of advertisers that have permanently left him or temporarily suspended their ads with his show.  Even as I was compiling this post I had to constantly recheck to pull advertisers out of the "still advertising with Limbaugh" column and place them into the second one.  

The world of Rush Limbaugh is changing that fast.  Goodbye, Rush, it was nice not knowing you.

10 Advertisers Flee Pervert Rush Limbaugh After Weekend Excuses Speech Masquerades As Apology

Rush Limbaugh Loses More Advertisers, But Protests: ‘The Left Made Me Do It’

From Denny:  In an attempt to stem the angry national tsunami against him, Rush Limbaugh offered up a Pandora's box of lame excuses, claiming it was a sincere apology.  His excuses came this weekend when the media wasn't watching closely - or so he thought.

What is the truth about number of Rush listeners?

For a radio talk show host that will not publicly verify his claim of 20 million listeners on 600 stations nationally, Rush Limbaugh's boat is rocking fast and furious as advertisers flee from the firestorm.  To date, sometimes literally abandoning ship by the hour, there are now ten advertisers to leave his show or suspend their advertising.

Dennys Global Politics: Is Rush Limbaugh Rhetoric Reason for Violence Against Women In Military?

Dennys Global Politics: Is Rush Limbaugh Rhetoric Reason for Violence Against Women In Military?: From Denny: In another version of stupid, the Pentagon continues to air the Rush Limbaugh Show, refusing to cancel it, insulting American women in and out of uniform. Pentagon press secretary, George Little, sees no reason why the American Forces Network should stop broadcasting Rush Limbaugh's show.

Little claims the show is popular with service members and that there is no plan to review that decision. Because this incendiary crap is popular you refuse to get rid of it? It's no wonder the Afghans are so furious with your insensitivity.

You see, it is apparently the Defense Department's policy to broadcast shows that "reflect a wide range of opinion." So, I guess they should consider giving air time to the Ku Klux Klan? How is this situation any different than inciting violence against blacks? Hey, let's give air time to The Taliban. I'm sure there are plenty of service members who want to hear from their warped point of view too.

Obama Speaks To Hate Merchants, Rush Limbaugh Insults To Women

Rush Limbaugh Cartoon by Ian D. Marsden of mar...
Image via Wikipedia

From Denny:  Rush Limbaugh refuses to apologize for "slut, prostitute and whore" comments against American women in general and against Sandra Fluke in particular.  President Obama jumped into the fray, denying Limbaugh any satisfaction, phoning law student Fluke for an encouraging conversation.

Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, was prohibited from testifying to a House committee about support of government mandated contraceptive health care coverage.

The Republicans refused to allow any woman to testify unless they chose said woman for the all male religious panel that amounted to a predetermined outcome kangaroo court.  The female politicians in the House were outraged so they held their own hearing for Fluke to testify publicly and honestly without editing from the Republicans preventing her liberty and free speech.

GOP Hate Merchants hurl accusations against women and minorities

GOP Slut and Pervert Rush Limbaugh Labels ALL Women Sluts

From Denny:  The latest stupidity from the so-called GOP Intellectual Corner comes from talk show host Rush Limbaugh labeling women as sluts and prostitutes for taking birth control.  His current insult is his constant railing against any woman who stands up for her rights.

From his point of view, "How dare women think they are allowed to be first class citizens in their own country?  Why should women be allowed to make their own decisions, especially about birth control?"

OK, that was the polite version.  This guy is as nutty as Glenn Beck that went into a slow motion dive of a psychotic breakdown on TV.  It went on for months.  Must we all be witness to the same losing his mind process of watching Limbaugh implode?  He should be taken off the air and quickly.  His mind is already cooked.

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Monday Morning Work Cartoons

somebody give this cat some coffee quick! :)

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Monday Morning Work Cartoons: From Denny: Check out these funny work day cartoons I found hanging around in the draft section of this blog. Better yet, the cartoonists still have the embed codes enabled - which certainly makes me do a little Sesame Street Elmo Happy Dance.

Almost two years ago it was when a stable of famous cartoonists quit enabling the embed codes to their political cartoons on thousands of blogs and sites. Considering how much traffic we bloggers sent them that could not have been too smart a business move. Oh, well. :) It also explains why you will see blank areas in a post or web page and maybe a few cartoons still left to view.

One of these days I'll get around to doodling my own cartoons and put the embed codes up on flickr - free to bloggers forever. So, while you are waiting for Her Greatness to find the time to doodle you can enjoy these smart cartoonists who are still available for viewing, enjoy!
