…the more this entire farce has the potential to backfire spectacularly on both the democrats and Rush’s Advertisers who ran away.
Now, imagine Fluke trying to defend this language about “heterosexist” policies in a public hearing, with Republican members of the committee questioning her about whether religious institutions (or private businesses, or taxpayers) should also be required to foot the bill for “gender reassignment.”
Congratulations, America: You’ve been scammed!
Ah but it has only been a short term scam, because of the increased interest in Rush’s show and the power of the new media the populace will shortly know the facts on Miss Fluke much to the determent of the left. I’m sure Rush’s late lamented advertisers will be delighted to be proudly defending the state mandating sex change coverage.
And even worse, I suspect that while “public” women will continue to pretend they are shocked SHOCKED by Limbaugh’s words, the seed that the dems are looking to get business and taxpayers to support an interesting set of sexual proclivities for young women is there.
I strongly suggest that women have a dim view of this. I know Roxeanne does:
Back in the Dark Ages, men used to buy women diamonds before getting them into bed. Now that you’ve done away with that requirement, how about at least asking men to buy your Ortho Tri Cyclen? If you’re an equal partner, negotiating a sexual encounter, why are you so unequal that you’re the ones crying to rich men in Congress for help, like Oliver Twist asking for another serving of food, while all the guys on Law Review are writing their Notes and applying to clerkships without a care in the world? And whose fault is that? Rick Santorum’s? Pope Benedict? or yours, for not having the basic self-respect to tell Mr. Law Review that he’s not getting any unless he understands that “equality” doesn’t mean that the woman buys the Pill and the condoms, too?
Read that whole post, it’s really something
Update: Adrienne (who I should link to more often) kindly does a service for Carbonite employees who handle chats who might be wondering what your day is going to be like for the foreseeable future. (Via NiceDeb)
Adrienne : Thank you. Since your CEO has made it clear that he doesn’t care about my business because I listen to Rush Limbaugh (who is the one responsible for my subscribing to Carbonite in the first place) , I have decided to take my business elsewhere. Please convey the message to your managers and CEO.
Rinse and repeat
Update 2: Cause, meet effect:
As of the closing bell on Monday, March 5th, 2012, Carbonite’s stock dropped to $9.15 per share. They actually hit their 52 week (or one year) low during the trading session of $9.09 per share. Oh, and the 52 week high for Carbonite stock was $21.10. Seems like they have quite a business model running there huh?
Maybe Carbonite can restore their old business model from a previous backup?
Update 3: I wonder how many former Rush advertisers carry ads on Mike Malloy’s show:
Their God, if this is the way they want to look at it, keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement
Hey picking on victims of people slaughtered and left homeless by tornadoes is one thing but it certainly doesn’t rise to the level of calling a political operative masquerading as a poor student a ‘slut’, particularly since the dead and homeless are in flyover country.
