  • Army email advising use of 'average looking women' in photos draws fire

    The U.S. Army is drawing some unfriendly fire about an email obtained by POLITICO recommending that photos of “average-looking women” should be used for stories about female soldiers. The email, written by Col. Lynette Arnhart, was meant to advise Army spokespeople about how they should educate the public about the Army’s integration of women into combat. “In general, ugly women are perceived as competent while pretty women are perceived as having used their looks to get ahead,” Arnhart wrote. “There is a general tendency to select nice looking women when we select a photo to go with an article (where...

    President Obama is apparently tired of pretending he opposes gay marriage. Good. Good, because lying to the American people is always wrong, and because now the American people will have a clear choice: a president who supports gay marriage, or a president who sides with the majority of the American people, including 61 percent of North Carolinians. I'm tired of pretending, too. Conservative elites, including those at Fox News, have shamefully kowtowed to the politically correct opinion on gay marriage. Some do so reluctantly because they have been cowed into believing defeat is inevitable. Some do so because they think...
  • UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER ECONOMIST: Rush Limbaugh Is Right, Sandra Fluke Is A 'Prostitute'

    Business Insider ^ | Mar. 8, 2012, 5:29 PM | Grace Wyler
    It has been one week since Rush Limbaugh first called Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," but the controversy shows no sign of dying down. Now University of Rochester economist and former Slate blogger Steven Landsburg has jumped to Limbaugh's defense. In a blog post, Landsburg argued that while the talk radio host's language may have been off-color, Limbaugh's logic was analytically shrewd. Fluke, Landsburg writes, "deserves only to be ridiculed, mocked, and jeered" for saying that women should have access to contraception." He adds that Limbaugh's demand that Fluke and other Georgetown students post...

    NEW YORK (AP) - A flower company is the 7th advertiser in recent days to say it is pulling ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's radio program. ProFlowers says on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh's program because his comments about Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke "went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company."

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum labeled Rush Limbaugh "absurd" over disparaging remarks from the radio talk show host directed at a law student who testified before a House panel in support of access to contraceptives. "He's being absurd, but that's you know, an entertainer can be absurd," Santorum told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday. "He's in a very different business than I am."

    The Georgetown University law student who was called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh for testifying on Capitol Hill about women’s access to contraception condemned the conservative radio host Thursday night for remarks “outside the bounds of civil discourse.” “I’m not the first woman to be treated this way by numerous conservative media outlets, and hopefully I’ll be the last,” Sandra Fluke said on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show.” “This is really inappropriate. This is outside the bounds of civil discourse.” Fluke described to Schultz the experience of receiving a barrage of public attacks from Limbaugh on Wednesday and Thursday. “My reaction...
  • Limbaugh: Obama may reverse contraception mandate since even Muslims oppose it

    Folks, let me tell you something. Don’t be surprised if the regime reverses this. I’ve heard that they’re rethinking it, that Obama might be rethinking this ban that he’s put in effect on the Catholic church and the schools and so forth. And it could be true. It could be true. I mean even Muslim clerics have come out against this decision. If Muslim clerics have come out against this decision, then Obama will hear that, much more than he’ll hear Catholics being upset about it. ~ Rush Limbaugh weighing in on the controversy surrounding the contraception mandate in the...

    SNIP...I’ll reserve final judgment until I read the entire piece. But based on these excerpts — which presumably reflect the thrust of the 10,000-word article — what is striking is the degree of self-pity we find in Obama’s advisers, which is reflected in the president’s words and attitude as well. Team Obama sounds nothing so much as overmatched and overwhelmed, unable to understand what has gone wrong, and increasingly bitter toward the nation’s capital and the pace and nature of politics.

    Nice catch by Andrea Nill — Queen’s Medical Center, where Rush Limbaugh is being treated after experiencing chest pains yesterday, happens to be a crucial location in the birther mythos. A UPI article mistakenly identified that hospital, not the Kapi’olani Medical Center, as the birthplace of Barack Obama. And even though the article was corrected, the “no one can say where Obama was born” myth has persisted.

    Rush is an Inspiration. The morning of New Years Eve 2009 and reports from Honolulu are sketchy at best. They indicate that Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized for chest pains. For more than twenty years Rush has provided lessons from his perch in front of the Golden EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) microphone articulating and sometimes embellishing a conservative perspective. Rush has never been shy about describing the incongruence as he found it which, articulate the difference between the political right and left. When he had a bone to pick with a liberal newsmaker, he went out of his way to...

    For some strange reason, the Daily Kos has gained the reputation in the mainstream media for somehow being composed of "reasonable progressives" in stark contrast to their Democratic Underground cousins whom even many in the MSM will admit are flat out loons. However, certain events prove that the Kossacks are every bit as crazed and full of hate as the DUers. And one such event that has proved this to be true is the reaction of the two sites to the news that Rush Limbaugh has been hospitalized in Hawaii. Of course there was a DU thread full of hate...

    President Obama is pursuing a "radical" agenda that is putting the economy and national security in peril, talk show host Rush Limbaugh told "Fox News Sunday," giving the young president failing grades across the board and standing by his sustained criticism of the administration. The conservative radio host assailed the administration for its economic stimulus package, health care reform plan and alleged uncertainty over the way forward in Afghanistan. In a wide-ranging interview, he called Obama a "child" driven by his "out-of-this-world ego." And he predicted that Obama, who built a broad-based majority over Republican candidate John McCain a year...

    Rush Limbaugh said that he hopes that Barack Obama fails, but clarified his message by saying that he hopes that Obama's policies fail. Rush is right: we support Obama but not his policies. 1.) Obama's "stimulus" plan is nothing more than pork-barrel spending disguised as a "stimulus" plan. This "stimulus" plan gives Democrats all of the pork that they have desired for years and wraps it all into one package - like $200 million for contraceptives. FDR tried to spend his way out of a depression and it didn't work, something which UCLA economists discovered after 4 years of research....

    According to an account in the New York Post, President Barack Obama yesterday told Republican leaders, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." With George W. Bush now off the stage, it may be that Obama and some of his fellow Democrats view Limbaugh, and not John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, or any other elected official, as the true leader of the Republican opposition. This morning I asked Rush for his thoughts on all this, and here is his response: There are two things going on here. One prong of the Great Unifier's plan is to isolate...

    The world's most listened-to talk radio host, Rush Limbaugh (over 30 million regular listeners) has developed a program known as "Operation Chaos." This program is designed to get conservatives, Republicans and others to register as Democrats and cross over to vote in primary states, to keep the contest going up until the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. Many feel that "Operation Chaos" has helped to keep Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY), the former First Lady and wife of former President William "Bill" Clinton, in the race against the neophyte candidate Senator Barack Hussein Obama (D-IL). With Senator Clinton still...

As I listened to your show last week, you chose to criticize and attack conservative Americans like myself who feel the Republican Party does not deserve to win in November.

    In the past three weeks, there has been a political firestorm caused by misreported facts about the purchase of P&O by Dubai Port Works, and scurrilous attacks on the UAE by pundits, which has led to the betrayal of America's most loyal and useful an ally in the Persian Gulf. The fallout from this betrayal will make it difficult to recruit future allies in the war on terror. The attacks on the UAE have the potential to do what Osama bin Laden has not been able to do with over a decade of bombings, the hijacked airliners, and fatwas. Just...

    Rush is floundering. He cannot find and hold a position on Specter and sounds utterly incoherent. This post is to counter Rush's rare defalcation and remind his listeners of the importance of acting now to eliminate Senator Specter before he assumes the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and does great mischief to any pro-life nominee.

    Reading from articles about Barney Frank and by Ken Schrag about the SF mayor, it is clear that the "gay marriage" issue is becoming a time bomb. Dems such as Schrag and Frank are warning this is a big problem, especially if the Dem Party as a whole gets tagged with this issue. Folks, while I've always thought this would break the GOP's way, I never thought it would be a "defining" issue. But Rush was quoting info on the "Defense of Marriage" bill that CALIFORNIANS passed by an overwhelming margin not long ago. This issue by itself puts California...

    Rush Limbaugh needs to resolve this malicious prosecution as quickly as possible and do so to the benefit everyone. The case the prosecutors are building against Rush appears likely to be trumped up charge of money laundering and doctor shopping. Rush’s real crime was becoming addicted to pain-medication, which he has admitted and has sought appropriate treatment for. Rush is a first-time offender and should be punished as such. The prosecutor however has given immunity to the maid for much more serious charges to pursue these minor charges against Rush. It is unheard of that a prosecutor would do this,...
