Quote of the Day

"Four years ago, the Mitt Romneys of the world nearly destroyed the global economy with their greed, shortsightedness and – most notably – wildly irresponsible use of debt in pursuit of personal profit. The sight was so disgusting that people everywhere were ready to drop an H-bomb on Lower Manhattan and bayonet the survivors. But today that same insane greed ethos, that same belief in the lunatic pursuit of instant borrowed millions – it's dusted itself off, it's had a shave and a shoeshine, and it's back out there running for president."
Matt Taibbi

Stop Rush Now

There's a very good post over at KOS outlining the present status of Rush Limpdick and ClearChannel entertainment after the old Mittster socked it to them this spring:

Big Trouble in Limbaugh Land

it inspired this open letter to Pillowman.

Dear Pillowman,

I wonder if you realize that you are supporting a radio program which regularly includes abusive language that may negatively impact your brand, sales, and corporate image with millions of Americans. I'm talking about the Rush Limbaugh show specifically. His attacks on Sandra Fluke are not only ongoing, they are the worst kind of disgusting, victim blaming, barrage of garbage.

Rush Limbaugh looked at a decent young college student, who was engaging an issue that is serious and life threatening, and made up a fantasy that included sex, dirty slutty women who have sex ..and not much else. It says nothing about Sandra Fluke or her serious issue, but speaks volumes about Rush Limbaugh. It seems that's all he can keep on his mind these days. Moreover, his comments show that he knows little about what he's pontificating on.

It's not our goal to silence anyone. Broadcasters have a right to say what they please. But consumers have a right to speak too, and we are saying to those who offend us, "We've had enough of your ad-hominem attacks, vitriol and dehumanizing language." It' time to clear up the airwaves, and I would hope that your company would have enough sense to avoid the kind of controversy that this small man with a dirty mind insists upon creating.

Please stop supporting his garbage before the stink rubs off onto your product.

PS: If you have time to write a letter or three, stop over at Stop Rush . net and get the list of those who are still to this day advertising on his program.
