Isn't Randy Rhodes a wrestler?

A self-described "liberal" whom nobody's ever heard of said something dumb on the radio. Let's present that as the face of liberalism, and watch the fun.

RIP Dusty Rhodes.

If Limbaugh is so lacking in influence as Rhodes claims, why did liberals go ballistic last year when he labeled perennial student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and "prostitute" for wanting government to mandate free contraception?

Because it served them to paint a right wing nut bar AM radio host as the voice of the GOP in two ways. First, they got to paint a right wing nut bar AM radio host of the voice of the GOP.
Second, nobody in the GOP has the balls to challenge him publicly, so they all had to fall in line behind a right wing nut bar AM radio host.
 
His numbers have little to do with anything. Their opposition's weak leadership was dictating this action.

Rush Limbaugh is a man who can use the term 'Feminazi' in all seriousness and without a hint of irony.

Which, really, tells you all you need to know about him.

Randi Rhodes.. oh yeah, I used to listen to her in 2004 on Air America Radio via RealPlayer.  Got tired of her in a few months.

I've been mistaken for Randy Rhodes on tape before, so I'm getting a kick out of this.

It probably had something to do with that not being at all what Fluke wanted.  Her complaint was that her university required her to buy health insurance, and yet that insurance did not cover one of the most commonly used medicines - specifically that Georgetown said their insurance would cover treatment for PcOS while at the same time refusing to cover the medication for that condition.

I disagree with her.   He is the primary voice of the conservative movement and the GOP.     I remember growing up in Texas before and after Rush hit the airwaves, and it hasn't been the same since.   He's more influential to the modern conservative movement than Reagan  was.   The current GOP platform way more resembles Rush's than Reagan's.   After Obama won in 2008, everyone was standing around wondering what the GOP was going to do.  Rush went to the airwaves and said he actively hopes that the sitting President of the United States of America fails.    The GOP followed suit.   When Obama won in a runaway again in 2012, all the politicos and talkingheads said the GOP simply must pass immmigration reform and extend the tent.  Rush went on the airwaves the next day and said the tent will not be extended and immigration reform will not be supported, no matter what.    Immigration is now dead in the Republican House.

Oh, it's been expanded way past just Rush Limbaugh.  Go hunting for a corner of the internet devoted to men's rights and you'll quickly run into a flock of men ranting about Feminazi's trying to trick them out of their sperm, their money, and their rights.

For me, it's just become a quick identifier.  I actually like it when someone uses that term (or most racial epithets).  It lets me know right away that I'm dealing with a jackass and that I can safely ignore whatever he's spewing while missing out on nothing whatsoever of importance.

InmanRoshi: He is the primary voice of the conservative movement and the GOP.


But his influence doesn't extend beyond the GOP, a shrinking political party. And the reason it's shrinking is because of Limbaugh and his fellow ultra-rightists.

Not only that, he became the model for how all conservative pundits in radio and on television communicate their ideals to the public. Coulter, O'Reilly, Hannity, all owe their schtick to Rush. Belligerent, insulting, trying for humorous but ending up offensive, his brand of conservative communication poisoned the political discourse and made it impossible for Republicans to work in a bi-partisan manner with Democratic politicians, like Clinton and Obama.Under Rush rhetoric, adopted by every major conservative pundit, Democrats are evil traitors hellbent on America's destruction, and any Republican who dares work with Democrats are as well.  This further alienates the Republicans party from actual independents and moderates who value political compromise more than rhetorical bomb-throwing and cripples Washington.

Reagan's at a bit of a disadvantage there, what with him being dead and all.

Liberal talk radio is almost as tedious as conservative talk radio.  The only mitigating factor is its relative rareness.

If you'd spent less time biatching about LImbaugh, Beck, Hannity, O'Reily and such and more time soaking in the truth and beauty that was Air America perhaps it wouldn't have been flushed down the great radio toilet. For shame.

The good thing with Randi is he will put his money where his mouth is - if you prove him wrong under controlled scientific conditions there's a substantial cash reward up for grabs.

I care about Air America losing to Rush, Hannity, et.al. about as much as I care about WCW and ECW losing to WWE.  And for the same reason.

Something right wingers never get. Air america didn't make it because "liberals" desire more depth to discussion. Right wingers LOVE Rush and his ilk, because there is no depth.

The biggest take-home from that particular kerfuffle was that a shocking number of right-wingers lack even a basic understanding of the female reproductive system.

Apparently you're pretty ignorant of female biology. Despite your assertion, fertility is not PcOS. They cover treatment of an abnormality. Fertility is not an abnormality. This is a pretty wildly known fact. How'd you get out of high school without knowing basic female anatomy?

Huh? Fluke wanted birth control to "treat" her fertility.

It's exactly like complaining that insurance will pay for a rental if I get into a wreck but unfairly denies me a rental for just cruising around town.
