    Dude –
    This is absolutely asinine, and should frighten people. But your reader has an ass so tight you couldn’t pull a pin out of it with a tractor.
    People have a right to express their opinion. You don’t need to agree with it, but you should defend their right to say it. Like this Kirk Cameron dude:

    Do I agree with him? No. But I prefer to know what he really thinks. Then you can deal with it. Piers Morgan asked him what he thought. So he told him. It would be better if he lied, and just said what is P.C.? How frigging stupid is that? But it seems like that is what most people want. Morons.
    You ever see “Inglorious Bastards”? Great flick. They carve a Swastika in the Nazi’s heads, so they can tell who they are after they take off the uniform. THAT makes sense. It allows you to see people for what they are. Not cloaked behind all this P.C bullshit.
    I am boycotting every sponsor who boycotts Rush. And I don’t even listen to Rush. Plus I don’t really even buy things. But I will feel better.
    Your Pal,
    Walt

    What is this world coming to when a man as esteemed as El Rushbo is crucified for calling a young lady a “slut” to millions of his radio listeners without having a torrent of left-wing harridans come raining down on him? Shed a tear, won’t you, for poor, aggrieved Rushbo, who stands athwart history, proudly and courageously teaching the PC police and a bunch of cranky, humorless liberals a thing or two about free expression in our culture. Why can’t these ladies just lighten up a little? Fret not, oh Rush, Clear Channel and your friends CF and pals at the Fountain have your back. Besides, its all Obama’s fault for trying to shove Kenyan socialism down our throat. Rush is blameless.

    • Besides, its all Obama’s fault for trying to shove Kenyan socialism down our throat. Rush is blameless.

      Finally ypu get it, Bill – Rush is indeed not the one trying to force kenyan socialism down our throat – when did this revelation strike you? Regardless of your slowness on the uptake I do find it encouraging that you are showing some progress in acquiring the ability to think Good for you, and hang in there – next week, we’ll teach you those two letters of the alphabet Head Start equips its graduates with.

    Everyone should leave AOL to save themselves from having their email list hacked.

    Limbaugh has always been offensive; it’s what he’s famous for. And AOL is just discovering this?

  5. Inagua

    DB – It gets worse. Someone actually criticsized Bill Maher for calling Sarah Palin a dumb twat and a cunt.

    Enough already! Goodness, gracious. It is the Right that for decades has used threats of boycotts to get companies to withdraw sponsorships. I do not remember even one little peep here. Oh, but heaven forbid the target is Conservative! Then, and only then, do we hear anything about freedom of speech.

  7. AJ

    It’s not the Kenyan socialism I’m worried about, DB. But his Keynesian socialism is an entirely different matter.

  8. Dollar Bill

    The bloody onset of Kenyan socialism that has Wall Street at 13,000 just quaking in its boots right? Where will Jamie Dimon hide? When will the 1% take matters into their own hands and fight back vs. Obama’s war on capitalism? I blame all those greedy public sector workers, and immigrants for our troubles, how about you?

  9. Greenwich Gal

    You morons!
    And you Walt – really. I thought you transcended this kind of stupidity.
    Why can’t I, a woman, have a problem with that fat, asswipe Rush Limbaugh? I mean we should all be for free speech here. Do I not have any rights to express my opinion to him and his cronies? Really? He can say what he wants but he also has to pay the price of his crudeness, his ignorance and his verbal vomit. I therefore, can also say what I want and and can choose to boycott those companies who think he is one cool dude. ‘Cause I don’t think he is one cool dude. I will defend to the death his right to say what he wants – but I also will defend the others who disagree with him. They are in turn excercising their free speech. Live by the sword die by the sword ol’ Rushie. I think the whole thing is pretty funny because he really did sound like an idiot. Advertisers realize this and are walking. Why would anyone want to be associated with a fool like him? Freedom, baby! It is what it’s all about.

  10. Walt

    GG –
    Your right to disagree is what I support. Go at it Baby. But don’t deny his right to say it. I don’t like him either. But I allow him to say what he wants. And you are right, he sounds like an idiot. Which is why you want him to say it. People need to understand the messsage, and not get caught up on words. I think we are saying the same thing. At least I hope so.
    Your Pal,
    Walt

  11. Greenwich Gal

    You know I love you Walt, darlin’, but it sounded to me like you were taking offense at the people who were taking offense! And I am supporting their right to be offended!
    Your gal,
    GG

  12. Walt

    GG –
    I love you to Sweetheart. This is a fine, but also a very important point. I have NO problem with people who took offense to what he said. That is their right and I support it. But I support his right to say it. I disagree with the Butt Boy all the time (that would be Chris, just to be crystal clear), but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be allowed to say what he wants. If I disagree, I disagree.
    Not allowing differing points of view is the danger. Disagreement, in a candid forum is actually a good thing.
    What do you think, Weasel Boy?
    Your Pal,
    Walt

  13. Greenwich Gal

    Crystal.

    GG –
    I admire you senseablilites. Rong time. Delving too!! Want to rub nasty’s?
    Your Pal,
    Walt

    Walt, my darling, I don’t think you could handle me! After all, I am a smokin’ hot 40ish trophy wife, built like a brick s*** house with a Private Equity Stud husband who has quite the temper.

  16. DollarBill

    Now it’s Allstate that’s pulled its ads from El Rushbo. Good on Allstate. Keep up the pressure, everybody!

  17. How is calling a woman a “slut” any different than using a racial slur?

  18. Walt

    GG –
    I left Private Equity when I realized there were more important things in life, and I have never regretted it. The temper is yours to deal with. I hope you are happy with that choice. I am a lover and a clown. Probably inept at both, but it doesn’t stop me from trying. Now let’s cut this gay crap out and get back to fighting. Weasel Boy – start an arguement!! You loser.
    Fondly,
    Walt

    40ish=49. Time is a cruel master.

  20. Walt, get peeps and we’ll make it a threesome. 😉

  21. AJ

    GG you’re much too young for me; probably way too high maintenance, too. Besides I’ve been accused of treating a girl like an old shoe on the first date. But then I don’t do dates.

  22. Greenwich Gal

    AJ – If you want to drive a Ferrari – you have to pay the maintenance.

  23. AJ

    Ferraris are built to be light weight: they usually blow apart when crashed usually killing the occupants. Most of my cars are old used German tanks that I keep ’till I find another one that I talk someone into giving me for almost free then sell one my old ones for more than I paid for it or keep it around for a few more years. I’m not big on spending money.

  24. Rude Poster

    AJ- If you drive a Ferrari you are a cheeseball!

  25. Greenwich Gal

    AJ – it is not so much fun to drive old German tanks!
    I suggest you take a spin in a beautiful, lightweight and smooth handling Italian or German sports car. You’ll never go back. Ask Walt.

  26. Rude Poster

    Beautiful, lightweight, and smooth handling sound lovely although that is often just the advertising pitch and NOT the real deal. Anyway, It is the maintenance that kills you. For most of us, it is just not worth the hassle.
    PS
    Renting is also a pretty nice option. You can try out any model you want and turn them back in as soon as your are done taking your spin.

    Here’s one of my tanks, adjustable suspension, turbo charged, four banger (to keep the front end light) e36 with a skeleton reminder:
