    I'd have never thought that they would approach this the same way I think about it:



    and he's absolutely correct.

    never mind that the decision to include Rush in the hall was most likely made months ago (if a bust is already being worked on).
    If you go just by the definition "people who are famous and from Missouri" then a lot of people from this list should probably get a bust too.

    Limbaugh hasn't killed anybody as far as we know, but this basically says "Missouri is proud of this person being born here". I think if the state of Missouri is proud of someone who spews incredibly vile stuff about women and minorities then they might as well fancy one or two serial killers.

    oh. . and we should add Peter Gabriel to the list of folks who have yanked their stuff from Rush's show.

    apparently he's furious that "Sledgehammer" can be heard in the background of his first rant on Wed.

    I forgot that some musicians could do that, mainly cause they don't exercise that right to often. If musicians are having their songs pulled from your segway or show intro, you know you've done fucked up.

    Segue. I don't think that Rush would ride a Segway because it advertises itself as being environmentally-friendly.

With birth control women can have sex as they like without fear of getting pregnant. It also means that, for the first time, men had to negotiate with women over pregnancy -- i.e. if the woman didn't WANT to have a child then the woman doesn't HAVE to have a child so if the man wants a child it has to be a decision made deliberately by BOTH.

    There is a Puritanical aspect though because to those with a stick up their butts it means women can have sex as they please without the potential consequences of a child out of wedlock. It means pleasure without potential consequences.

    Basically what it all boils down to is -- women got completely outside the control of men. A single woman can live without any male supervision, on her own, make her own money, live her own life and control her own reproductive issues. There are some men who just never got over the idea that women need to be under male control. And if women can't be put back under direct MALE control then at least they can be put under GOVERNMENT control -- which is mostly run by men anyway.
    This is an attitude which has an undercurrent in a lot of society, which is why it's so important to come down so hard on Limbaugh. That legislation about the tests and procedures imposed on men wanting Viagra may have been done as a joke but I didn't find it funny because it was so spot on. I've had a vagina probe for an ultrasound shoved into me and, trust me, it ain't fun. But it was *my* choice and I gave my consent.

    I cannot imagine what it feels like being *forced* to have that procedure. If that's not a war on women, I don't know what is.

    As I said, it's an attitude that goes through society, leading to comments like creepy bearded guy from Comic Book Men telling me to lick someone's taint as an insult. That's something said to assert power and make women feel powerless.

    As are some of the comments on my "Dear DC: Why Do You Keep Fridging Me?" by Lois Lane on Wired yesterday. Pretty vile stuff but it says way more about the mindset of a small but vocal subset of men who are just like Rush. Lois, that troublemaker, is probably pretty damn pleased at the result.

    This is a fight and a stand worth taking and women in comics and their treatment *is* related to the general attitude exposed by Rush and his millions of listeners.

    So far, it's something like 25 advertisers have dropped Rush.

    Doesn't seem to have broken his stride though, heard him yacking this afternoon like nothing had happened. Then again it could have been a rerun. Not sure to be honest, I but in my head phones and drowned him out with my PSP 3 minutes down the road.

    I think you've hit upon a paradox.

    On one hand, it's eco-friendly. On the other hand, it's a sign of affluence for people who are too lazy to walk.

    BTW, the last count I saw was seventeen pulled sponsors.

    I'm predicting Rush goes to a podcast format or satellite radio subscription service under the proud pretense that he's too innovative and honest for mainstream broadcast, with a lame cover story about pursuing a broadcast model that promotes exceptionalism.

    That or he ODs and people who think Breitbart was "Vince Foster'd" claim an assassin squad got to Rush too.

    25???

    Here's the thing: he had enough money and rich backers to stay on the air awhile. And I think he'll keep the radio show going as though nothing happened until the uproar dies down, out of sheer pride, before going to a podcast or satellite radio service so that he claim he's too good for radio, rather than admit defeat.
