The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh Bleeding 3 More Advertisers Over Fluke Slut Slurs

The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh Bleeding 3 More Advertisers Over Fluke Slut Slurs: From Denny:  This week the Rush Limbaugh show bled three more advertisers: Kohler, Fisher Nuts and Reputation.com, an online reputations management and Internet privacy service.  The tally is now up to 145.  Many were regional and local advertisers.  He still enjoys 9 permanent national advertisers, though 3 seem shaky.

It's been a month since the uproar push back from women started with Limbaugh throwing out his slut, prostitute and whore slurs of Sandra Fluke in a three day diatribe that infuriated the nation.

For 53 of Rush Limbaugh's smear attacks on Sandra Fluke, go to this link on youtube. (If you can stomach hearing it all.)

One amusing development is that this uproar forced Limbaugh to hire a crisis consultant.  "Ya think?"

Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Video: Flying Pig, No Wings Necessary


Flying Piglet


Ouch Outrageous Obnoxious and Odd: Funny Video: Flying Pig, No Wings Necessary: From Denny:  This is one of those unexpected videos from real life that catches you off guard.  The piglets and Momma pig were being filmed and discussed as to weaning time for the little guys.

Well, get a shocker as to how Big Pig quickly convinces her piglets to wean themselves.  Now you know where the children's books got the idea for flying pigs.  Watch closely as it happens so fast you might miss it.

Sort of reminds you of Wall Street Bankers where you sure would like to thump them all out, weaning them off corporate welfare and federal bailouts.

The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Mocks The Trayvon Martin Hoodie Threat: From Denny:  Jon Stewart lampoons hoodie wearing supportive journalists and politicians trying to join the trending and popular national conversation demanding a proper investigation into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, a young black man deemed suspicious as he walked through a neighborhood wearing a hoodie.  Amazingly, without the public outcry and national pressure, the police had no intention of investigating the crime.

The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh: 3 Funny Colbert, Stewart Videos, Late Nite Jokes




The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh: 3 Funny Colbert, Stewart Videos, Late Nite Jokes: From Denny:  Did you hear?  Today another advertiser turned tail and ran away from Rush Limbaugh.  This time it was Kohler, manufacturer of those stylish faucets and other kitchen and bath fixtures.  That makes 143 advertisers, with about 9 left in his smelly pervert corner.

Of course, I'm sitting in a diner having lunch today in the red state of Louisiana, with the channel tuned to the ridiculous Fox News, and who is featured?

You guessed it, Fat Boy Blowhard Rush Limbaugh.  The amusing thing is that the love affair with Fox News and Rush Limbaugh is waning even here in the deep South.  "Can I Tell Ya?" that the only person watching the screen was the liberal blogger in the room.  Everyone else was treating Rush like he is so last year fashionista.

The Social Poets: WTF? New York Times 1 Of 10 Still Advertising On Rush Limbaugh This Week?




The Social Poets: WTF? New York Times 1 Of 10 Still Advertising On Rush Limbaugh This Week?: From Denny:  Can you believe it?  This newspaper is supposed to be the bastion of America's best journalism and they have been advertising on the Rush Limbaugh talk radio show.  Worse, they were still advertising this week after all that has happened.  What are they?  Brain dead?

    The Social Poets: Caustic Christians Promoting Hate Endorsed By GOP Candidates

    The Social Poets: Caustic Christians Promoting Hate Endorsed By GOP Candidates: From Denny:  A Louisiana pastor, affiliated with the Rush Limbaugh Hate Merchant class, introduced Rick Santorum at his church when the Republican campaigned here in my town of Baton Rouge.

    Of course, my fellow Democrats across the nation erupted in outrage.  I yawned at the fist-pounding rhetoric reminiscent of Nikita Khrushchev pounding his shoe against President Kennedy in the 1960's.  Apparently, shoe slapping is a popular anger release in many cultures.

    Fun St. Patricks Day Facts To Ponder While You Swill Green Beer


     
    From Denny:  Mardi Gras just happened last month, and, well, Lent can be a dull affair while we are waiting for Easter.  So, why not spice it up with some St. Patrick's Day frivolity and celebration?

    South Louisiana is primarily Catholic and we like our champion demon-chasing warrior saints. Honoring him is serious business.

    Here in Louisiana we celebrate with none other than a St. Patrick's Day Parade, complete with official bead-throwing and green beer freely flowing.

    Since all good holy days have a serious component along with the feasting here's some brain food to feed you too.  Be sure to check out my other St. Patrick's Day posts at the end of this post.  Lots of interesting historical trivia, quotes, poems, Irish blessings and funny thoughts too.

    Some fun facts to ponder while you celebrate the holiday and swill crazy green beer:

    The Social Poets: Can The President Control Gas Prices? Yes, If He Learns How

    The Social Poets: Can The President Control Gas Prices? Yes, If He Learns How: From Denny:  As usual this White House gets things as ass backwards as the backward Republicans by just skimming the surface of political issues instead of drilling down into the details to achieve success and truly move the needle.

    The Obama White House goes at everything from a frontal assault, never considering good old-fashioned guerrilla warfare, something women well understand and have practiced out of necessity for centuries.

    Getting gas prices down to normal has not been a priority for this White House for three years and, now, years of ignoring the obvious has backfired.  Americans are furious at the lack of inaction and the high prices as evidenced by the recent polls.

    The Social Poets: Breaking: ALL Rush Ads Suspended. 140 Advertisers Abandon Limbaugh, Conservative Hosts Too: From Denny:  Breaking news at 9:00 PM:  ALL national advertising for the Rush Limbaugh show has been suspended.

    There is nothing like a woman scorned.  American women are fed up with the mean-spiritedness of GOP talk show hosts aimed squarely at all women.

    During the past two weeks women, all across the nation, took measures to let national advertisers know loud and clear they will not purchase their products.  Utilizing social media, the internet and blogging proved to be quite effective for a relentless campaign in real time.

    Dennys Global Politics: Afghanistan: Soldier Killed Civilians. Defund The Army, End The War Now: From Denny:  With Republicans so fond of pleasing their puppeteer war profiteers, they now find themselves in a quandary.  You see, the Republicans have boxed themselves into a corner, and, with it being an election year, they are cooked.

    Republicans are big on deficit plans no matter how unrealistic.  Now they are faced with reducing the size of the active Army troops to the point the military can no longer run a two-front - or soon to be multi-front - war.  Another 100,000 ground troops will have to be slashed to meet the criteria of the $1.2 trillion budget cuts.

    Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno whined to members of the Senate Armed Services Committee about his situation.  However can he secure his status to retire at a high pension and then acquire that all-coveted position of newly found wealth with his handler lobbyists and crappy think tanks?

    Supposedly, it is the failure of the lawmaker supercommittee to agree on a deficit-reduction plan that caused this hardship for the Army.  But is it really?

    The Healing Waters: Why Losing Weight Is Difficult: Carb-Heavy Breakfast


    obesity in U.S.


    The Healing Waters: Why Losing Weight Is Difficult: Carb-Heavy Breakfast: From Denny:  Currently, there is a 36 percent national obesity rate.  For decades now, food manufacturers have outrageously manipulated the food supply by adding so many preservatives and excess sugars into products it has caused a national health epidemic.

    Consumers are overwhelmed trying to find healthy food that is safe to consume and feed our families.

    Romancing The Chocolate: Chef Cookies: Cinnnamon-Espresso Chocolate Chip Vegan Style: From Denny:  Raise your hand if you love the combination of coffee, chocolate and cinnamon.  Yeah, I thought so; me too.   This easy recipe is from Chef Chloe Coscarelli, a winner of the Food Network's "Cupcake Wars."

    Romancing The Chocolate: Cookies: Almond Nuggets with Chocolate Drizzle




    Romancing The Chocolate: Cookies: Almond Nuggets with Chocolate Drizzle: From Denny:  Chocolate and almonds are the ideal combination for a cookie.  This is basically a sugar cookie with sliced almonds that makes for a stiff dough.

    It is a simple exercise of dropping the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet - so that makes it easy even for beginner bakers.  The chocolate comes in when you ice the cookie with bittersweet chocolate that has been melted together with real butter and almond extract.

    What's amusing is how the recipe creator actually thinks these mere 24 cookies will last long enough to make it into a covered container.  Bring your friends! :)

    The Social Poets: International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World




    The Social Poets: International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World: From Denny:  Women are in crisis around the globe this year - from the Middle East to Europe to America.  For the Middle East it is about torture, malicious prosecution, unjust imprisonment and the selling into prostitution and slavery of both women and their children.

    For America it is about dealing with the Hate Merchants women are expected to shrug off and endure as it contributes to domestic abuse, unequal pay and hiring in the work place and vicious gang rape in our military.  In Europe women are dealing with a deep economic crisis that is rocking the foundations of society, robbing hope for the next generation's prosperity.

    Dennys Global Politics: Egypt: Revolution Loses Meaning As Women Denied Rights, Role in Society


    photo by Fatma Naib


    Dennys Global Politics: Egypt: Revolution Loses Meaning As Women Denied Rights, Role in Society: From Denny:  Egypt held so much hope for the world when the Arab Spring broke out last year, toppling the regime.

    Then reality set in.  The very women that protected the men who marched, the very women who gave medical aid and money to help the revolution, were turned upon and denied their respect and freedom.

    The protesters took it all and gave nothing in return by denying women a seat at the table while they restructured the national government.  The former male protesters and the Egyptian military council refused the concepts of generosity, kindness, partnership and equality.  To the women, the protesters and the military are no different than the regime:  all deny freedom and equal rights to women.

    The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh: Who Are Still Running Ads? 49 Companies Left: From Denny:  As Rush Limbaugh denies his advertisers are leaving like rats off a sinking ship, to date there are 49 companies, two radio stations and one advertising agency no longer willing to place ads with his show.

    There are also some porn industry sites that have stepped up to support their fellow Pervert in Chief Limbaugh.

    Check out the perverts stepping up to advertise on Limbaugh's show.  Perverts support other perverts:

    The Social Poets: 10 Advertisers Flee Pervert Rush Limbaugh After Weekend Excuses Speech Masquerades As Apology: From Denny: In an attempt to stem the angry national tsunami against him, Rush Limbaugh offered up a Pandora's box of lame excuses, claiming it was a sincere apology. His excuses came this weekend when the media wasn't watching closely - or so he thought.


    What is the truth about number of Rush listeners?


    For a radio talk show host that will not publicly verify his claim of 20 million listeners on 600 stations nationally, Rush Limbaugh's boat is rocking fast and furious as advertisers flee from the firestorm. To date, sometimes literally abandoning ship by the hour, there are now ten advertisers to leave his show or suspend their advertising.

    Dennys Global Politics: Is Rush Limbaugh Rhetoric Reason for Violence Against Women In Military?

    Dennys Global Politics: Is Rush Limbaugh Rhetoric Reason for Violence Against Women In Military?: From Denny: In another version of stupid, the Pentagon continues to air the Rush Limbaugh Show, refusing to cancel it, insulting American women in and out of uniform. Pentagon press secretary, George Little, sees no reason why the American Forces Network should stop broadcasting Rush Limbaugh's show.

    Little claims the show is popular with service members and that there is no plan to review that decision. Because this incendiary crap is popular you refuse to get rid of it? It's no wonder the Afghans are so furious with your insensitivity.

    You see, it is apparently the Defense Department's policy to broadcast shows that "reflect a wide range of opinion." So, I guess they should consider giving air time to the Ku Klux Klan? How is this situation any different than inciting violence against blacks? Hey, let's give air time to The Taliban. I'm sure there are plenty of service members who want to hear from their warped point of view too.

    The Social Poets: Obama Speaks To Hate Merchants, Rush Limbaugh Insults To Women

    Image via Wikipedia
    The Social Poets: Obama Speaks To Hate Merchants, Rush Limbaugh Insults To Women: From Denny: Rush Limbaugh refuses to apologize for "slut, prostitute and whore" comments against American women in general and against Sandra Fluke in particular. President Obama jumped into the fray, denying Limbaugh any satisfaction, phoning law student Fluke for an encouraging conversation.

    Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, was prohibited from testifying to a House committee about support of government mandated contraceptive health care coverage.

    The Republicans refused to allow any woman to testify unless they chose said woman for the all male religious panel that amounted to a predetermined outcome kangaroo court. The female politicians in the House were outraged so they held their own hearing for Fluke to testify publicly and honestly without editing from the Republicans preventing her liberty and free speech.

    The Social Poets: GOP Slut and Pervert Rush Limbaugh Labels ALL Women Sluts




    The Social Poets: GOP Slut and Pervert Rush Limbaugh Labels ALL Women Sluts: From Denny: The latest stupidity from the so-called GOP Intellectual Corner comes from talk show host Rush Limbaugh labeling women as sluts and prostitutes for taking birth control. His current insult is his constant railing against any woman who stands up for her rights.

    From his point of view, "How dare women think they are allowed to be first class citizens in their own country? Why should women be allowed to make their own decisions, especially about birth control?"

    OK, that was the polite version. This guy is as nutty as Glenn Beck that went into a slow motion dive of a psychotic breakdown on TV. It went on for months. Must we all be witness to the same losing his mind process of watching Limbaugh implode? He should be taken off the air and quickly. His mind is already cooked.

    The Social Poets: Funny Late Nite Jokes About GOP Rick Santorum




    The Social Poets: Funny Late Nite Jokes About GOP Rick Santorum: From Denny: At the beginning of this leap year month it was "Rick Santorum -who?!" In just the past two weeks he climbed the GOP primary charts. With that sudden rise in popularity came the late night jokes to prove he was noticed by national voters.

    Of course, never mind he achieved that notice by screaming out the most weirdo conservative positions. He took a page out of the Gingrich Playbook. If it worked for him, maybe it would work for Santorum.

    Then came the rambling undisciplined speeches from Santorum that left the voters wondering what he said. Republican political strategists wildly started pulling out their already thinning hair at the notion of Santorum making it to their convention.

    Forget my fellow journalists. The best guys to vett any political candidates are the comedians in my book. Since I'm the publishing and journalism industry's dreaded hybrid they have yet to catch up to or understand, - a journalist blogger - I'm delivering the unvarnished truth to my loyal readers with a dash of spicy opinion and a liberal dose of humor. After all, who said we can't enjoy some funnies along with our consideration of who we will consider not voting for in the November election?

    Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Monday Morning Work Cartoons

    Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Monday Morning Work Cartoons: From Denny: Check out these funny work day cartoons I found hanging around in the draft section of this blog. Better yet, the cartoonists still have the embed codes enabled - which certainly makes me do a little Sesame Street Elmo Happy Dance.

    Almost two years ago it was when a stable of famous cartoonists quit enabling the embed codes to their political cartoons on thousands of blogs and sites. Considering how much traffic we bloggers sent them that could not have been too smart a business move. Oh, well. :) It also explains why you will see blank areas in a post or web page and maybe a few cartoons still left to view.

    One of these days I'll get around to doodling my own cartoons and put the embed codes up on flickr - free to bloggers forever. So, while you are waiting for Her Greatness to find the time to doodle you can enjoy these smart cartoonists who are still available for viewing, enjoy!
