Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Jerk (see I know how to get attention, too!)
When I was in college my brother told me that there was a guy on talk radio that I had to listen to, he was amazed to hear someone actually state conservative ideas on the air. I listened a lot to Rush Limbaugh. It was so fun to hear someone state what I had been thinking all these years. I laughed when he would demolish | Read More »
Are all the scandals finally starting to catch up with Obama?
There was an interesting comment made by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show today: RUSH: I know. In a way I’m conflicted, because you say — and I know what you mean — that he’s getting away with it. And, yeah, where we are certainly means he’s gotten away with it. I have to catch myself sometimes and grab myself before I get too far | Read More »
Flip Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals Against Far-Left Activists: A Global Warming Case Study for Not being Polite Anymore
Rush Limbaugh regularly points out how liberals employ Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to portray conservatives as villains, and he berates GOP politicians for the combined mistakes of seeking mainstream media approval / failing to comprehend how their positions cannot take root when they allow reporters to frame the discussion – as in, ‘tea-partiers aren’t worthy of consideration because they are racist, sexist homophobes.’ GOP politicians | Read More »
The Liberal Media Shutdown
Liberal Media Shutdown Rather than engaging the in the crisis mode editorializing on the government shutdown I would like to speculate on a more productive course of action.

On Thursday’s edition of “PoliticsNation,” the MSNBC outlet for celebrated race-baiter Al Sharpton, his two panelists were liberal radio talk show host Joe Madison and MSNBC something Krystal Ball.

Mountains, Mole Hills, Rush, and Hannity
Liberals in the press are soiling themselves in excitement that Cumulus might drop Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, the nation’s most popular and second most popular radio programs. “Sandra Fluke’s revenge,” they claim giddily.That’s nonsense and what is actually happening is quite simple.Cumulus made some business mistakes and some large acquisitions that have both affected its bottom line.

Stupid Liberal Quote of the Day- July 24th Edition
After playing snippets of such conservative voices as Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Dana Perino and others, my favorite liberal ass- the supremely moronic Martin Bashier, had this to say: “After that river of sewage, let’s get right to our panel… I wish we had more time but you both have provided a wonderful explanation of that sewer of absolute crap that we just had to | Read More »

Bill O’Reilly vs The Bible Thumpers
“. . . the other side hasn’t been able to do anything but thump the Bible.” – Bill O’Reilly talking about people who oppose homosexual marriage.

Now playing the role of George Washington… Neal Boortz?
Neal Boortz will be calling it quits this week after 42 years in the radio business.

As he rides off into the sunset to play golf, drive around in the Boortzmobile, and most importantly, visit Disney World, we | Read More »
