right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

« Rush says the "S" word | Main | Bonneville: drop rush limbaugh from KTTH now! »

March 05, 2012



Limbaugh is addicted to the grotequely huge paycheck that he gets from EIB. iT would be like asking me to quit trading high risk/high reward stocks, as i continue to print out obscene profits. I don't see Rush resigning on his own. How many more years are on his latest contract? According to my research he signed a long term contract for 400 million dollars in 2008. His contracts seem to last five years , from my memory, so im guessing he has another 18 months to go. His time has obviously come and passed. His contract could be bought out a la Tom Leykis although that doesnt seem likely. Leykis'es 5 year contract was for 3 million a year.


the opinion among the old radio and advertising hands seems to be that the only way Bluto Limbaugh could be driven off the air is if the boycott lasted for months and months and more more and more advertisers continue to drop out, and the old hands don't see this happening. Rather they see the boycott thing fizzling out in the short term and other advertisers coming in to replace the lost revenue. That has already started to happen. The only hope would be if Clear Channel refused to offer him another contrace when the current one expires. That decision will have nothing to do with any odious comments he's made on the air from a "principled " point of view. Don't make my snort my coffee up my nose in explosive laughter. The soulless sharks of CC will be simply counting up the cold , hard beans and going from there.

What do you expect from this blow hard slob, who has all the following traits

1) College dropout....empty cans make the most noise

2) Vietnam draft dodger....got a 4F deferment for a Pilonidia cyst....Guess what, that means he had a hair growing up his butt...if he knew the people he knows now back then he could have had one of them pull it out. ()o()

3) Four wives, no kids....must be shooting blankes, "butt" he's an expert on what it takes or doesn't take to an expert.

4) 61 years old and he looks like hell....has a bloated, arsinic induced look.

5) Lastly the companies that are dropping him are only dropping his show, not the network.
Got to be carefull when you effect the bottom line....porky

Can't keep a wife, can't keep his faith and can't keep his big mouth shut!

"Butt" he is still the quickest shot in town....unfourtunatly he's a slow draw and keeps shooting himself in the dick...

What's Mitt got to say about this....Po' boy got to see where the chips fall...Mitt's handlers wouldn't let him let go of his pecker right now.

Let all the lowbrow gop/teabaggers take the headlines...be the cool calm asshole you are...the people will love you! Look at the Nutt...he's mute, to busy looking for that lost hair.....
