I figure. That's why I have never listened to him. I suppose I heard a few snips on the news, but I'd never tune in to him.

Edit: Holy crap, I just had a peak at that site. That guy's worse than I figured. What a creep. Blows my mind that he made a handsome living saying shit like that on the radio. I do a volunteer radio show... music, never made a dime.
He tells people what they wanna hear and they eat it up. In case you didnt know, we have millions of bigots in this country.

Sad but true. He's had the top commercial talk show since 1987 when record keeping began. Spewing hateful & demeaning shit the entire time. I'm sure there are young conservatives out there who learned some of their first words from Rush on the radio.

God pity the woman married to a man who listens to Rush. I get that from a 5 minute perusal of that site. Sheesh.

Well, babies born now will be spared that, apparently. :rolleyes: I'd post one of the snippets from that link but they aren't allowing COPY to work. I'll be damned before I'll type it out, I'll just paraphrase it. He said there's no proof of an association between tobacco products and cancer. I kinda think he smoked himself to death (he has stage 4 lung cancer). Bye bye Rush, STFU and RIP.

Limbaugh broadcasts during a time few people listened to the radio. Maybe that was smart. Howard Stern when on terrestrial broadcasted during a time everyone listened to the radio. If Limbaugh was on in the morning his ratings would have been appreciably lower.

If Nancy should be king then there's something new here :D
I suppose there's a finite chance that Pelosi will be the Democratic candidate in November if the party can't agree on another candidate. I may be wrong, there are some restrictions. Maybe the convention has wiggle room, I don't know. I read a column in the SF Chronicle around a year ago (Joe Garofoli, IIRC) saying she could be the one to dump Trump. She's busy being SOTH, hasn't shown any of the vast weird DNA that the 20+ candidates have shown. She would have to be drafted, as it were. I don't know that she'd show the mettle of Warren/Sanders wing of the party in pressing for major reforms in America. But she would be a breath of fresh air in terms of not obfuscating what's going on.

Counterpoint: it'll never be cleansed. The GOP through Trump has normalized extremism, and whomever the next Republican candidate will be, will be far, far worse. Best case scenario, the GOP falls into obscurity as boomers die out.
Folks tend to blame the GOP on us boomers, but at least 80-90% of the boomers I know or encounter absolutely detest Trump and the GOP. OTOH most GOP followers/Trump backers I know are our 30-50 y.o. self-centered off-spring.

Meh. Boomer bashing is a fashion statement among edgy young progressives the same way that packing heat is a fashion statement for young rednecks. Endless variations are possible on the theme of "Fuck your feelings".

Any of them hateful racist gasbags ginning up same sentiments in millions of people?

Don't be deliberately obtuse. I'm sure there are some white nationalists on Trump's short list for the next PMOF

I dig Pelosi. I like Adam Schiff too.
The Fox News/RNC Combine has done a wonderful job of smearing her but if you look at Nancy's career objectively she's actually got a lot done and most of it genuinely good.
But out of pure hate she will never be elected president, same as Hilary.

She's 79 years old. I doubt she wants to be President at this point in her life. Bernie & Joe are outliers.

From a GOP point of view, Rush deserves the medal. They wouldn't be where they are today w/o him. 30 years of his bitter & derisive hate & discontent have molded the minds of millions to serve their purposes entirely.

So apparently cheeto is now "Mr. Man"

Rush Limbaugh: ‘Mr. Man’ Trump Will ‘Have Fun’ With ‘Gay Guy’ Buttigieg Kissing His Husband

"“They’re sitting there and they’re looking at Mayor Pete, 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage,” continued Limbaugh, who has previously declared that heterosexuals are “under assault.” "

So in that article, rush says no less that 5 times "A gay guy, 37 years old, loves kissing his husband on debate stages "
Think he has issues?

rush is a POS.

Trump has contract-enforced long term liaisons in lieu of marriage; of course he'll try and mock and dismiss an example of what he isn't capable of (a loving relationship).

He raped one of his wives, dreams about fucking his daughter, and rawdogs pornstars with a 'wife' at home. A 'wife' whose name he has gotten wrong, a 'wife' who won't hold his hand in public. Seems Il Douche is as much an authority on relationships and human behavior as he is with diplomacy or geography. Yeah there will be shock everywhere.

Obama's relationship with Michelle always seemed to rile up Trump and other banana republicans too come to think of it. Came across as not enough husband deference, too much actual friendship, with discourse and behavior to match. Let's not forget what a terrorist fist jab can do to tender snowflake feels. That and Obama had foreign females fawning over him constantly, I'm sure we've all seen the irritated Michelle pics. That's man cred that people like Trump crave.

Seeing as he's on tape bragging about it, should it be "admitted" sex criminal?

Almost every story about Limbaugh going back 40 years can be summarized as "Media clown who claims to be a Patriot of Freedom is outraged that people are exercising their freedom in ways that he disagrees with."

Your willful (or just ingrained) ignorance never ceases to amaze me.
Outside of being pop culture icons, I can't really give you a valid reason/argument why those people received it
But I can give you valid reasons why Rush should have not received it.

And that's why observations don't reflect reality. In 2016 a full 28% (!) of people who voted fit in the demographic of age 45+ AND voted for Trump. Compare that to about 16% of people who voted fitting in the demographic of age 18-39 and voting Trump. Boomers and their parents contributed to Trumps election at a rate about 1.75x that of Gen X and Gen Y.

Data from Cornell.
