From HOT AIR to DEAD AIR.......
Dead Air During Two Limbaugh Commercial Breaks (VIDEOS)
.......any Rush Limbaugh "fans" left beyond the description in the title of this post, would be afraid to publicly admit they are "dittoheads" for fear of losing/alienating their wife/girlfriend/daughter/mother.......and their fear is well-warranted!!!!!!!
UPDATE: Let me interpret Rush Limbaugh's APOLOGY for you, I put it through the "Rush Limbaugh Propaganda Decoder 3000":
After preaching hatred towards all women for decades by calling them feminazis, sluts, & prostitutes to my LOSER all white male unmarried and without children woman hating "DITTOHEADS"...I'm sorry if I offended anyone. And by "anyone", I mean people who don't listen to my show but are causing advertisers to leave. I KNOW I didn't offend "DITTOHEADS". They feel the same way I do. Actually, they feel the way I "PRETEND" to. I'm "PRETENDING" to feel a certain way so I get half-BILLION dollar contracts and DUPES believe what I say. Why do you think they call themselves "DITTOHEADS"? DUH! But if I offended any non-DITTOHEADS who are causing advertisers to leave my show, I hope they all fall for my FAKE APOLOGY and come back on board the Rush Limbaugh Hate Train which will not be changing any time soon. After all, this formula scored me a half-BILLION dollar contract, I'm one of the 1% and these "DITTOHEADS" don't even realise they're in the 99%. They think they're like ME! I'm laughing all the way to the bank, where my 1% bankster friends are! Dividing people by inflaming stupid "DITTOHEADS" & religious fanatics really pays off. I'm filthy rich and married, so do you think I care if I cause "DITTOHEADS" to alienate their wives/girlfriends/daughters/mothers for political purposes? btw, DITTOHEADS, if I'm married and don't have any kids, duh ya tink my wife's taking birth control, or I just have a low sperm count or using the RYTHYM METHOD?END DECODING
UPDATE II - the MISLEADING DEFENSE of Rush Limbaugh people on the right are rolling out this week: comparing this to Breitbart's death
(and why is no one on the right OR the left bringing up the FACT that Breitbart is famous for making/participating in/promoting PROVEN HIGHLY EDITED FAKE HOAX VIDEOS, proven IN COURT? which are "stings" that particularly attacked BLACK people and women...Breitbart never met a filthy rich Republican white guy he didn't like! which qualifies him as a revered "HERO" in rightwing circles)
Here's how rightwing media is trying to put out the Rush fire: comparing Rush calling that woman a slut and having a multi-day JIHAD against her using his MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR MEDIA MACHINE AND NATIONWIDE COVERAGE, to comments about the death of fellow hatemonger Andrew Breitbart's death. btw, Breitbart TWITTERED this on the day of Ted Kennedy's death, which rightwing radio shows will NOT tell you this week as they defend Rush: Breitbart TWITTERED on the day of Ted Kennedy's death that Kennedy was a "villiain," a "prick," "a big ass mothe*******," and a "duplicitous bastard." Breitbart even called Kennedy a "special pile of human excrement." Are rightwing radio stations like WILK telling you this as they roll out THE BREITBART DEFENSE this week? Of course not. And as a sidenote, Breitbart was only famous in the inner bubble world of rightwing media. When he died, I mentioned it to several people, and all of them said, "Who the hell is Breitbart?" Now in their little FAKE world they've created, he's really famous but SSSSSSSssshhhhhhh...don't tell them... Another thing Breitbart is know for, is making highly edited (like the ACORN videos) hoax "sting" videos (with his buddy James O'Keefe, a convicted criminal) to take down people or organizations he dislikes. Maybe he would've made one of these videos about the woman testifying, if he didn't die. But of course, rightwing radio won't tell you that, either, this week in their Breitbart defense of Rush Limbaugh. Breitbart's "sting" videos focused a lot on taking down black people (Shirley Sherrod) and black organizations (ACORN), and white women (Mary Landrieu, which caused James O'Keefe's arrest). Never a "sting" video on the military industrial complex, rich white guys, etc... Before Breitbart died, he said he was coming out with damning video of Obama (black), which btw is causing speculation that his death was not natural. Now where was Breitbart when we needed a "sting" video about Bush/Cheney lying us int 10 years of endless wars? SORRY IF I'M BLOWING YOU AWAY WITH FACTS HERE, DITTOHEADS!!!
Here's why that's comparing apples to oranges: insulting hatemonger talk show hosts is different than the most powerful talk show host engaging in a SLUT JIHAD against a non-talk show host and non-politician testifying in front of congress. FALSE COMPARISON. NICE TRY. Using your multi-million dollar media machine for a SLUT JIHAD against someone without the means to fight back is POWERFUL INTIMIDATION also meant to intimidate future testimony by people like this woman. A good apples to apples comparison would be if left radio talk show hosts engaged in a SLUT JIHAD against a non-talk show host/non-politician conservative women testifying in front of congress for something she believes in. That doesn't and will never happen. Rightwing hosts are FAMOUS for this intimidation tactic, left hosts do not do a JIHAD on average people. You can't compare Ed Schultz attacking Laura Ingraham, because she is a rightwing neo-con hatemonger talk show host. Talk show host vs talk show host is fair game. Ed Schultz ≠ Rush Limbaugh (3 decades of attacking women), and Sandra Fluke ≠ Laura Ingraham (establishment GOP neo-con talking head show host). Attacking hatemonger talk show hosts is fair game. Politicians are fair game, too. Rush Limbaugh commonly attacks other talk show hosts and politicians, as do hosts on the left. And there is no firestorm about it on either side. When you use your media bully pulpit for a SLUT JIHAD against someone who's not a talk show host or a politician, that's when you get the firestorm. SO DON'T FALSELY COMPARE APPLES TO ORANGES, nice try. But bigtime FAIL!
UPDATE: Here's the BIG BREITBART video he was supposed to release at the time of his death to "take down" Obama -
How Can The Republican Party And Rightwing Media Be Staging A "War On Women" And Be Getting Away With It? During March 8 International Women's Day, No Less? (Rush Limbaugh & rightwing radio body count up to 141 advertisers) This was broadcast on WILK, (turn off WILK): WORSE than a real-life Archie Bunker WASHINGTON TIMES: Who knows, even now we may be watching the death throes of the Republican Party. Every single woman, every single minority member, every single civilized human being, should fall on Rush like so many bricks, forcing a collapse on his house of sludge. Rush Limbaugh aside, the assault on the rights of women is alive and well all over this country. Every single GOP controlled legislature in the United States has passed laws to limit the rights of women to control their own bodies. This latest outrage, - the attempt to limit women’s access to contraception is only one skirmish in a war that promises to put American women back in the kitchen where they belong, barefoot and pregnant. If you're EVER going to read an essay on abortion, this is it: (If a woman doesn't have the right to decide over things concerning her own body, she really has no other rights, and a bunch of corrupt men politicians shouldn't be deciding anything over a woman's body.) Of Abortion, and Women as the Ultimate Source of Evil Everyone forgets that this whole thing started with House Republicans framing women's contraception as a "religious freedom" issue and holding a congressional hearing with an ALL-MALE CLERGY PANEL - NO WOMEN ALLOWED TO TESTIFY! Democrats then had to hold a non-official forum to let Sandra Fluke speak. IE: REPUBLICANS = RUSH LIMBAUGH = NO WOMEN ALLOWED!!! The all-male/all clergy contraception hearing called by House Republicans (picture below). This is really where all of this started. Rush Limbaugh's attacks on women were only Part II of the GOP attack on women:

Joseph Kony and Rush Limbaugh: "Hi Rush! I'm a first time caller from Uganda, a black guy, and a Christian. Joseph Kony attends my church. He's actually a great guy and I want to thank you for defending him well in advance of this hateful video against him that's now received over 52 MILLION views on YouTube." Rush's greatest crime is that he taught his followers to be devoid of EMPATHY. They cannot watch this viral video (below: KONY 2012) that has over
