I only did an hour of show prep, but I feel like I'm skipping school today. I feel like I'm not fulfilling expectations, so we'll see. This is what I know. Mitt Romney was not at Chappaquiddick. Mitt Romney has not been accused of rape. Mitt Romney did not have an affair with a mob babe. He didn't have an affair...
  • Limbaugh takes on Shep Smith’s ’21st century’ reaction to Obama gay marriage announcement [Video]

    The Daily Caller ^ | 5-10-2012 | Jeff Poor
    Fox News’ Shepard Smith didn’t hide his feelings after ABC aired a snippet of the interview in which President Obama came out in favor of gay marriage. “The president of the United States, now in the 21st century,” Smith said. Later on his “Studio B” show, in a segment with “Special Report” host Bret Baier, Smith doubled down by saying Republicans were on “the wrong side of history.” On the Thursday broadcast of his radio show, however, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh challenged Smith’s statement, and asked where the anchor thought gay marriage been a winner electorally. “Republicans on the wrong...

    ‘Rush Babes for America’: Limbaugh launches Facebook campaign for conservative women By Dylan Stableford | The Cutline – 1 hr 33 mins ago In an effort to counter the National Organization for Women's campaign against him, Rush Limbaugh has launched "Rush Babes for America," a Facebook page dedicated to "the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American values and not being told by faux feminist groups how to think." "I've been tired for a long time of these faux female groups, which are really nothing but groups of liberals," Limbaugh said on his radio show...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Americans, ladies and gentlemen, are taking their country back -- and they're doing it one election at a time. As was evidenced in Wisconsin, Americans are not afraid of union goons. They're not impressed with a slow-jamming Preezy. They aren't intimidated by the media anymore. From reconfirming the meaning of marriage, to showing support for a great Wisconsin governor, to humiliating a sitting Democrat president with a huge turnout for a convicted felon, voters demonstrated that the power attributed to Barack Obama and the State-Controlled Media has been overestimated. Conventional wisdom was nuked yesterday. Tea Party dead...

    Over at the left-wing Politico, the headline is "Limbaugh Boycott Cost 'Millions." But once you actually click on the story, you get the real story: ------ "It hit us pretty hard," Dickey said during a call with financial analysts yesterday. "A couple of million bucks in the first quarter and a couple of million bucks in quarter two." Dickey would not give exact figures, but said the "millions" accounted for "about one percent" of the roughly $245 million in first quarter revenues, and said he expected revenue to return to normal in June. Cumulus owns just 38 of the 600...

    “Start listening to Rush Limbaugh.” That was the message representatives from Media Matters for America and the National Organization for Women delivered to NOW chapter leaders in a secret, narrowly focused strategy session Wednesday night. In audio of the NOW/MMFA strategy webinar obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, the liberal organizations plotted the best ways to get the radio giant and veritable burr in their collective saddles off the air.

  • Are Hannity, Rush, and the big talkers playing us for $$$? (vanity)

    Do you ever get the feeling that Rush and Hannity don't really care who wins, just as long as their dollars keep rolling in from us tea party saps. Besides Mark Levin, what prominent talker has gone out on a limb and endorsed true conservative candidates? Everyday we have to here Hannity interview the John McCains of the world. If he truly believed in the conservative movement, wouldn't he be out there trumpeting Richard Mourdock and Don Stenberg like Levin is? As for Rush, he is more interested in commercializing the tea party movement with his "Two if by tea"...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Junior Seau. Junior Seau's suicide. I met Junior Seau just one time. It was one year at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic Golf Tournament. Dean Spanos, the Chargers owner, was playing in the tournament and I was playing with Fuzzy Zoeller and his crew that year. And we all had dinner one night after that day's round. And Junior Seau was everything everybody is saying about him. He was uplifting, he was funny, he was in a great mood. He was kind of in my face humorously over politics. He was a big believer in the government...

    After years of verbally combating Media Matters’ ceaseless assaults, Rush Limbaugh has taken a more concrete step towards refuting the vocal leftist organization. On his website, Limbaugh now has an entire section dedicated solely to setting the record straight on dubious Media Matters allegations.

    Obama Attacks Rush Limbaugh, Grover Norquist "I think Jon Stewart's brilliant." Daniel Halper April 25, 2012 9:08 AM President Barack Obama sat down with Rolling Stone for an hour long interview, which the editors there are billing the "most substantive interview the president has granted in over a year." The president used the opportunity to single out two conservative Americans for attack. The president was asked, "Is there any way to break through that obstructionism by Republicans?" He responded by attacking conservatives Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist: My hope is that if the American people send a message to them...

    In 1990 I knew everything I needed to know about Rush Limbaugh. He was a racist. He was sexist. He was an arrogant, rich SOB who didn’t care about the poor. He was a fool who knew nothing about how the world worked. How did I know these things despite never once having listened to his program? Via the media of course. Despite having a Bachelor’s in Political Science, I paid very little attention to actual politics. As a grad student I paid cursory attention to the news and didn’t much venture beyond what I saw on ABC news. One...
  • Misunderstanding Free Speech

    04/19/2012 1:01:48 PM PDT · by Michael Tergent
    Recently Ozzie Guillen, the manager of the Miami Marlins baseball team, said that he admired Fidel Castro. It was ignorant and perhaps stupid, and has created a mini firestorm in southern Florida. The comment has caused a fairly predictable reaction from many including the media, particularly in this case, the sports media. The belief that we are constitutionally guaranteed the right to free speech, and with that freedom we can say whatever we want without consequence is false.

Limbaugh says he was about a quarter-mile away from his home, and while using his iPhone with a voice-transcription feature that turns spoken words into printed text, a mysterious message suddenly showed up.

    Excerpt: "Now on Sunday night Romney was here in Palm Beach for a big fundraiser. Word has leaked out about some of the things that he said to the donors. These are things that he's not said publicly in terms of specifics on policy, and one of the things that he talked about was a tax plan. He wants to lower rates but eliminate some deductions for the rich. And I have to tell you, folks, I'm not comfortable with the Republican nominee talking about special plans for "the rich," special plans for "Hispanics." That was part of it, too....

    ...........The other week we profiled how this game was being played with business executive Mark Stevens. Stevens' business -- and Stevens himself -- was abruptly inundated with threatening calls and e-mails demanding he remove his company's advertising from Rush's show as broadcast in the New York area -- or else. An incensed and decidedly heroic Stevens not only doubled down on his advertising as a result, he went on Fox News to directly take on the thugs -- saying in part that what was happening to him was part of a "Battle for America." Stevens is right -- this is...

    Wow. As we often say here: you just can't make it up. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee took his first phone call of his new talk radio call-in show yesterday. From "Mike in San Francisco." Remember: the show is being positioned by the Cumulus Media Network as the conservative show with "more conversation, less confrontation." Or, as it is certainly being pushed in the anti-Rush Limbaugh media, the show for moderate Republicans that will Take Rush Out. RINO Radio, as we noted here last week. But there seemed to be something slightly out of whack. That something? The very first...

    Remember all the self-righteous chest thumping that went on after conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh made fun of the 30-year old Georgetown activist Sandra Fluke? I’m sure you do. Politicians, celebrities, and major companies all got in on the “Censure Limbaugh” action. And why not? It was all the rage. Everyone was doing it. And just like any good fad, somebody’s always late to the party. In this particular story, that “somebody” is Arby’s. Yep: the third-tier fast food chain announced yesterday (again, about a month late) that it would be removing advertisements from Limbaugh’s program. Odd: “Limbaugh notes...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Judge Napolitano was on Fox this morning, America's newsroom. That's the show with Martha MacCallum and Bill Hemmer. And Martha MacCallum did this segment. She had Napolitano on, and she played a clip of me defining judicial activism, as I did on this program yesterday. I said, "Judicial activism does not happen when you follow the law. Judicial activism is when you don't follow the law. Obama is trying to redefine that, too," and after playing a couple of sound bites of me, Martha turned to the judge and said, "Judge, I know you have a lot...
