Is "grief" some kind of street slang referring to the succulent boy prostitutes of Santo Domingo? Because if so, yes.
 
2013-07-31 01:09:24 PM  
Oh go drug yourself again, Mr Limbaugh.
 
2013-07-31 01:09:57 PM  
You're also louder and more obnoxious. So there's that.

Say what you will about limbaugh...at least he is honest about his goals. That his viewpoints are also helping the GOP to destroy themselves is merely a happy bonus. Gods I hope the republicans never change!
 
2013-07-31 01:13:18 PM  
I liked the part where rush said he wasn't interested in compromise...that's awesome! Please please PLEASE gods let the GOP take that same attitude!

i drive a lot for work and I sometimes flip over to AM radio for sports, but when it's on commercial I click over to these types of shows.

I don't last long in listening, but it's a different universe, different timeline, or whatever analogy works here.  I don't live in the same time space continuim as these people.

Instead of whining about it* maybe he should ask himself "why?"

* I know, I'm being ridiculous by suggesting that a Republican stop whining.

Go home, Rush.  The Dominican boy you are fondling is drunk.

Most sane, rational people don't understand limbaugh. He's becoming a cult leader, and not so much a political force anymore.

I wish I got the kind of grief Rush Limbaugh's gotten over the course of his career. It would certainly help keep Mrs. Howell in the lifestyle to which she is accustomed.
 
2013-07-31 01:16:26 PM  
He should hire a Talibani for a co-host, they can talk about how slutty women are and how gays are doing gay stuff, shoulder the criticism together.

The image of racist, sexist, bigot homophobe has taken hold. They think that's what people think of them. I think they've lost their confidence ... and they have bought into this notion of why they are hated and disliked, and they are trying to change rather than defeat the people responsible for it all. I'm about defeating them within the political arena of ideas.

Yes, I have no idea where people could have gotten an idea that "conservatives" are racist, sexist, bigot homophobes.  Clearly it's just an image problem.  Conservatives need to communicate better while talking about rape being a good thing or passing more anti-abortion laws designed to humiliate women.
 
2013-07-31 01:18:04 PM  
I see this "liberal indoctrination" claim made over and over, but no evidence provided to support it.

What, exactly, in public education curricula do conservatives see as "liberal"? Science? Evolution? Climate change? History? Social studies?

Disclaimer: I wasn't educated in the public school system, so I'm genuinely curious.

Or for that matter, passing voting laws that clearly are meant to make it tougher for poor and ethnic voters to cast their votes.

When asked about the Democratic Party, Limbaugh said that he was interested in "defeating them, not compromising with them."

Fascism 101.
 
2013-07-31 01:22:03 PM  
Well Republicans, ideologically led by him, are more of a threat to each of us than a terrorist.
A terrorist cannot take away your food stamps, unemployment, health care and cannot pay companies to send your job overseas.  A terrorist cannot rig the banking system to horribly fail.  But Republicans have and continue to do so.   So, there is some comparison there.
 
2013-07-31 01:23:09 PM  
Rush has always been a performer.  He has his core audience, knows what they like to hear, and so he gives it to them.  No one with a rational mind could believe half of the stuff he spews.  He doesn't believe it himself, he just knows what sells.

Now his type of performance is starting to hurt his ability to draw a crowd financially.  Promoters want to stand by him, but when what he says affects sales of what advertisers sell, they're going to start questioning their relationship.
 
2013-07-31 01:23:33 PM  
I get more grief than the Taliban gets.
I get more grief than Al Qaeda gets.


MC Limbaugh in the house!
 
2013-07-31 01:24:30 PM  
If rush loses cumulus media...well, that would be his flagship station. He can try to laugh it off all he likes but it's a loss like that is embarrassing to say the least.

Facts, reality... Anything that isn't idiotic right-wing propaganda that has no relationship with what actually is is "liberal indoctrination".

'Republican Party Wants A New Base'


I can't watch the video at work, the Huffpo headline's all that got through the firewall. Is Limbaugh analyzing here, or complaining?

The most remarkable thing about the guy is that, around the time his radio show went national, his point of view didn't completely jibe with the Republican Party's. Over the following six years or so he pretty much made the Republican Party come around to his way of thinking, using entertainer's skillz (thereby making the United States a worse place and influencing World History for the the worse.) And for a megalomaniacal egotist that had to be the best high imaginable.

So now if he's complaining that the Republican Party doesn't like him so much anymore and he's bemoaning a loss of influence and importance, a slide that looks like it might go on forever (best part.......... heh, heh), that's got to be the worst imaginable crushing blow for someone like him.

Schadenfreude time.

'I say crap to piss off and sucker people everyday so people will pay attention to me. I am more commonly heard on air than news of Taliban. Wah wah!! People are giving me too much attention and rude reactions even though I only say what I say in order to get attention and rude reactions.'

He cries for the spotlight and then cries when the light burns. Nothing worse than an asshole who acts like a bully AND victim at the same time. He is a loathesome person, regardless if he believes his crap or not.

I became a liberal after being a conservative for years.  Who was it that indoctrinated me, it was some obscure writings called the Gospels.  After really coming to understand them, I had no other choice than care about my fellow humans and see the humanity in everyone.

That's correct, you don't. They've created a whole echo chamber of misinformation for themselves that the rest of us who choose to live in the bright world of facts and common sense are oblivious to. I can only take those talk radio guys for a few minutes at a time, and my reaction is typically 1) laughter at their insanity, which transitions to 2) hollering some permutation of "No it's not" or "No s/he's not" or "No we're not" at the radio, which results in me switching back to NPR for relief and sanity. If I'm out on the highway and NPR isn't on the air, it's either oldies or whatever non-Jesus music station is available.

Reality has a liberal bias.  As a college educated man (though during college, strangely I was conservative, at least fiscally), the anti-intellectual sentiment the right gives off is more or less what drove me away from them.  That and seeing the struggles of others and having empathy.

For example, you can believe in a deity if you please, but don't try to convince me that the Earth is 6,000 years old or that the Native Americans came from Israel 600 years before Christ.  Both are demonstrably untrue.  Believe it all you want, but don't you dare try to teach my child that in school.  Rick Santorum flat out said "we're never going to get the smart people", and that's probably the most intelligent thing he's ever said.

Oddly enough it was the evangelicals that helped convince me I was pagan and not Christian. So I should thank them for that.

We need to get the blacks off the Democrat plantation.  For example, they can get themselves off the plantation and go to work for once in their lives!  Or to drive their blinged out caddy to Shaqueefa's house to visit their.....hey, where are you going?  Don't you know that this is how we welcome you into our big tent?

There do seem to be parts of the curriculum that they don't like, but the whole idea of public education is problematic from a conservative standpoint. If it works, it's proof that the government can do something right and help people. That doesn't play well with Reagan's "9 most terrifying words" rhetoric. If it doesn't, it fails our children and wastes taxpayer dollars. It's lose-lose for them.

BTW, that you can replace "public education" with any government program and "children" with whoever that program is designed to help is a feature in the above logic, not a bug.

Changing their image, at least?

The new usnkewing is that millions of (mostly older white male) conservatives stayed home because Romney was not sufficiently conservative.

Any excuse to keep screaming at Sandra Fluke about her slut pills and at non-Asian minorities to get jobs.

I was a conservative during my upbringing and attended a Lutheran elementary school and subsequently a private college-prep high school. I don't believe that my schooling had much of an influence on my political beliefs, and looking at the Facebooks of former schoolmates, they tend to fall liberal and conservative about equally. My parents had the most influence on my politics at the time, of course.

After leaving home, I had a girlfriend and a lot friends who tended to be liberal, and my politics shifted toward the center because I began to understand liberals better than I ever could while living at home in the right-wing echo chamber of my family. A lot of the liberal issues they discussed just made more sense to me than the stuff I'd been brought up with.

I'd say that 9/11 (specifically, the United States' reaction to the event) and the Iraq War pushed me to the left for good, and in addition to that, being raised in a science-friendly household (mom made sure I had plenty of science books to read and I consumed them eagerly), the anti- or pseudo-science positions many in the GOP have taken over the last decade or so has me pretty confounded.

Largely it consists of "everything".  But specific complaints I have seen are about Evolution, climate change, non-patriotic History, removing classical authors for less talented women/minorities (or for filthy books), grade inflation, comprehensive sex-ed, and gym classes that either don't keep score, or avoid competitive sports altogether.
