Pig Boy Breaks Through Bottom of Barrel, Trough
Lord only knows why Rush Limbaugh still works for Clear Channel. Here's my theory:
Somewhere in his $25,000,000 West Palm Beach, Florida mansion Limbaugh must have locked away in a wall safe that sits behind a massive oil painting of Ronald Reagan videotaped and/or photographic evidence of the Mays brothers in bed with a dead Dominican boy hooker and/or a donkey, with Lowry and Mark Mays both passed out among empty tequila bottles with dildos sticking out every which way like heroin syringes. Perhaps Limbaugh himself decided not to go stag during his occasional sex tours and was in a position to train his camcorder on someone else's moral putrefaction for a change.
That's my theory because it doesn't make sense that Clear Channel Communications, the mouthpiece for the Texas Republican Party, would be paying a bloated racist like Rush Limbaugh $400,000,000 at a time when they're laying off thousands of employees and no longer matching the 401(k) plans of those who survived at a time when they're struggling to find $400,000,000.
Limbaugh's latest statements about Sonia Sotormayor can't but make a sane person scratch their head and wonder why this man is even allowed to get anywhere near a microphone or a keyboard after offering to send the Latina Supreme Court nominee a vacuum cleaner and a job cleaning his house.
I guess pig boy heard through the grapevine that her Catholic upbringing may not impel her to try to overturn Roe v Wade. Apparently, Limbaugh is squealing like an Arkansas razorback being led to slaughter because Judge Sotomayor belonged to an all women's club named the Belizean Grove. To the detriment of our brain cells, the Civil Rights and the women's rights movement, Limbaugh wonders aloud if it would've been OK if a male Supreme Court nominee was revealed to have been part of an all male club.
Therefore, one can only conclude that Limbaugh's crippled short-term memory can only be attributable to 1) Oxycontin and Viagra poisoning, 2) early onset of incipient dementia or 3) that he is quite simply the stupidest man in the solar system.
This kind of self-victimizing, eliminationist rhetoric is still endemic throughout right wing radio but its very presence should not in any way be considered mainstream much less be tolerated. To speak in such a fashion of a federal judge of 17 years and Supreme Court nominee simply for belonging to an all women's club at the same university that had no problem with creating an organization whose sole purpose was to exclude women and minorities such as Judge Sotomayor is typical of the GOP and in right wing radio.
Its ubiquity doesn't mean it ought to be tolerated or challenged. Limbaugh's $400,000,000 contract should not be confused with him representing the American mainstream of thought. To Limbaugh and others of his reeking ilk, woman and minorities should not only be barred from trying to crack old boy clubs like the Supreme Court, they shouldn't even organize according to gender, race or political affiliation, especially if they vote Democratic. They're supposed to remain not only separate and unequal but disorganized, to boot.
This is why Republicans and wingnut bloggers snear every summer when progressive bloggers flock to one hotel or another for the annual Netroots convention. This is why they shriek hysterically of liberal media bias whenever a network or newspaper is caught employing more than one liberal at a time. And they make racist jokes that only a pork rind-crunching redneck would laugh at when a female Supreme Court nominee was found to have once been part of an all women's club.
Because God knows there are no all women's clubs in Republican circles.
