Not Sara

My surgeon said Vitamin E reduces wrinkles! SO, less wrinkles and a broken hip? What to do?

Jack is Back!

Does this also apply to eating oysters?

L!ink U!nder N!ame

Not Sara

JiB, I thought eating oysters served another purpose?!

Jack is Back!

Not Sara,

My point exactly:;)

OT: Over at LI the good Professor is calling it Total. Poliltical. War.

Extraneus

Shouldn't health plans be mandated to cover oysters?

Jack is Back!

Ex,

And golf balls, preferably Titleist ProV's - I seem to go through them as fast as Fluke goes through condoms.

Extraneus

Insurance companies would obviously save big bucks if they could get more geezers out on the course and having lots of sex. It'd strengthen their bones, too.

sbw

It's a damn good thing TM isn't a prog. Imagine the hoops we'd have to jump through, literally, to comment on this blog.

matt

another manufactured crisis out of V.I. Lenin's textbook. Limbaugh, not Vitamin E.

As to Vitamin E, I would refer you back to the alar and other contradictory brouhahas. Vitamins bad. Brawndo good.

Sandra Fluke will be on ABC The View in a few!! (still on my iPad but will try and report)

Jim,MtnViewCA,USA

Instapundit links to a post which notes the crony-capitalist connection--

"The Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate requires health-insurance companies provide contraceptive coverage for all ‘FDA approved contraceptive methods.’ It does not insist on generics. And it does not offer any cost containment. . . . It’s important to point out that among President Obama’s biggest financial backers are precisely the Big Pharma companies who benefit from the mandate"

Ann

She is shocked and stunned at RL. She doesn't want him to call her and apologize. She doesn't believe him.

Obama is such a kind man for calling her ;()$&

She tells everyone to go to MEDIA MATTERS.

Good grief ...Joy says RL is a hypocrite because he takes Viagra. she knows because he was arrested! WHAT


this is just my opinion but Flake is gay and a very angry twit

Rick Ballard

DoT must be sleeping in - RAS has BOzo at -18 this morning.

Danube of Thought

Wow. Minus 18 at Raz today.

Sue

These sons of bitches can call anyone on our side of the political aisle anything they want without consequence. We better by God start fighting back or there won't be anything left to fight for.

Sue

The people calling Rush's advertisers are the 99%. They don't have any money to spend on the product they are boycotting. Good freakin' grief. They can't even afford their own contraceptives.

matt

waiting for Limbaugh to come on the air. Should be interesting.

NK

DoT-- easy there. minus 18 and minus 12 are Raz's outer parameters, the median is about minus 14-15% -- 25% strongly support 40% strongly oppose-- and 44-45% overall approve. Is 'Bam going to get the vote of ALL of the overall approvals PLUS ALL 5+% of the no opinions? No way.

narciso

It's intriguing how despite the full kultursmog, the 'proof is in the pudding' that's why they went deep into the gumbo,
the cook up the poll they have been touting
today.

Sue

I just read somewhere, don't remember where, that one of Rush's advertisers, Carbonite, is not doing well financially. And...we can put them over the edge by withdrawing our patronage.

MarkO

Exactly, Sue. Those advertisers were making money from Rush. Boycott them.

Jack is Back!

Listening to Rush and so far he is only playing a bunch of satirical parodies. He did acknowledge that his sponsors that left were not on his side of the political spectrum but thats okay since it was a mutual business deal. But he also noted that his audience comes first and that that audience created a lot of business for those left sponsors.

He rejects millions of dollars in ad each year including GM. Much to the chagrin of his sales staff. Audience comes first not second or third. His success comes from his listeners.

Sue

“They’ve decided they don’t want you, the audience, or your business.” Rush Limbaugh earlier.

Sue

Rush telling us to boycott them without using the words boycott.

Jack is Back!

He will replace those advertisers who don't want his audiences business. Only the left tries to suppress speech or voices in which they disagree. You the audience make your own choice on the products you buy.

He is now apologizing again and is not waiting for apologies from the left especially Bill Maher - they get rewareded for dispicable things including making movies. The difference between them and us is we apologize and they don't don't.

All our traditions that make this country great are under assault.

Chubby

((Listening to Rush and so far he is only playing a bunch of satirical parodies.))

that's odd, I heard a monologue where he went into great detail about all the background games etc. that that were played in D.C. to orchstrate the Fluke event because Obama's polling is showing a great loss of support by women

and there Rush just said it: The biggest problem facing America today is the absence of a moral core. (paraphrase, I'll grab the exact quote when it's posted on his site.)

narciso

Rush doesn't concede the argument, let him be bullied out of the premise, of course references to De Tocqueville, probably ring
odd to Gregory, since he didn't say with a French accent,

Sue

Derek Hunter ‏ @derekahunter

We spent a week being lectured on civility by people who cheered the death of a 43 year old father of 4. Go to Hell, #p2.

Frau Gartenzwerg

Rush corrects his pronunciation of Ms.Fluke's surname and says it's *fluck." Isn't that worse than fluke? Bill Maher would have a field day if she were a Republican.

Phonics has really gone to hay-ull. Perhaps she is British????

narciso
Sue

Cool, now we can say Fluke You and not offend.

Extraneus

I love the guy, but I thought Rush could have done a better job on that. He mixed too many things into one monologue: Obama's power grab vs. the Church; Democrat dirty tricks and normal low-life behavior; Fluke's inexpert testimony to a non-committee and unverified sob stories about woman who need bc pills for real medical issues; advertisers vs. audience, noted above; de Toqueville on Socialism vs. Democracy, etc.

narciso

Oh, he's now trumpeting the bigfooting of Jill Abramson, by Obama at Barnard.

Captain Hate

I heard part of Rush's opening monologue. Did he ever apologize for getting played and letting himself become the story? Because that's the only one I care about.

Sue

Capt'n,

Yes, he said he became the story and that wasn't his intention.

Chubby

it was an excellent step-by-step chronological narrative imo.

MarkO

Mother Flucker. Or, I guess not mother. That's the point, right?

BB Key

CHate, He also said he was sorry for using the language of thr left

narciso

Didn't need the www in the url.

Ben Franklin

Why are you making it so easy for the Dems to win the WH, and control Congress.

Boycott? When you double down, you should make sure the cards on on your side. Or, are you becoming anarchists who just want to burn it down? I'm sensing that pre-adolescent tendency to pop the pigskin because the game is running away from you.

Chubby

((Because that's the only one I care about.))

he repeated his apology three times. on the third, he said he was not going to say it again. he took full responsiblity for misusing words, that he did not believe she was either of the two names he called her and that his words were wrong.

Chubby

he also said you will never get an apology from the left no matter how vile they are toward a rightie

Chubby

his comment about never getting apologies from the left was not part of his apology, he said that when he was done with apologizing and had moved on to other topics

Jane

He also said he was sorry for using the language of the left

Now that's smart.

Jack is Back!

Chubby,

I am listening on the internet and watching the dittocam. I wonder if instead of ads he plays the satires and parodies during the commercial time outs. Are you hearing ads if on the radio? Plus I missed the first 15 to 20 minutes.

Jim,MtnViewCA,USA

When I was young, during every election Dems would claim that Repubs were about to shut down Social Security.
In more recent years, the claim is that Repubs will institute a theocracy.

Did the old scare tactic run out of gas? Or is it mostly still out there but I see the wrong set of stories and ads?

Gus

Goodafternoon JOM friends.
I have a serious question for most of you.
Do any of you waste your time reading Troll Franklin's comments anymore?

I don't. Haahhahahahahahahahahahaha!

Frau Gesundheit

TM, I'm going right in to hug my kettlebells. Thanks for the health news.

Captain Hate

Yes, he said he became the story and that wasn't his intention.

Good; on to other things and getting back on offense.

henry

Gus, check your mail.

Rick Ballard

"Did the old scare tactic run out of gas?"

It ran out of the improvident Not So Greatest Generation Yellow Dogs whose lack of intestinal fortitude and foresight coupled with an amazing level of credulity gave us FDR and his bastard progeny, LBJ.

The Kendonesian commie is having tough sledding in any direction due to the failure of scientism (as expressed in error plagued modeling) to replicate anything resembling reality. There are parlous times ahead for the credentialed morons over-invested in faith based systems lacking the OPM necessary to maintain belief.

Chubby

JiB

the first ad I heard was an ad for Carbonite :)

jimmyk

Rush corrects his pronunciation of Ms.Fluke's surname and says it's *fluck."

Gregory seemed to be pronouncing it as "flook" (rhymes with "book," or, more apropos, "hook" or "schnook").

Gus

Hello Henry 10-4

Chubby

Jack, I'm listening to WABC radio live stream

jimmyk

Re Carbonite, I'm a big fan of online backup since I started doing it a year ago. I'm sure if I was more of a tech person I could have made better use of the external 1T drive I got for the purpose, but as one who uses three different computers in multiple locations, plus a smartphone, online backup allows even a tech simpleton like me easy access to any file on any of my computers anywhere I have internet access, in addition to letting me sleep better at night knowing that if a hard drive crashes I won't lose anything.

But I use Sugarsync, not Carbonite. So there are good alternatives.

centralcal

No advertisements are ever played when you stream the Ditto cam or just listen to audio - only parodies play during the breaks. Ads are only for radio listeners.

Jack is Back!

Fluke, like in kook.

I thing this was a strategic marketing move on the part of Carbonite. As I noted before, they are today's buggy-whip manufacturer. With the various Cloud systems and the low cost of externat tetra-drives, who needs to keep paying a monthly subscription fee to Carbonite?

Extraneus

Carbonite is down 1.27% today.

Jack is Back!

Didn't finish my thought: So, by doing this and leaving Rush they got more free publicity than if they had stayed. It may save them for another month but they are serioiusly toast. Can't vouch for the others but if I ever need their type of service or product I will make sure to find althernative providers.

pagar

"The biggest problem facing America today is the absence of a moral core."

IMO, one can not have a moral core and be a leftist. What can possibly be moral about killing inconvenient babies? What can possibly be moral about lying about every thing that you discuss?

daddy

Here's Rush's De Tocqueville quote from this mornings first hour if it hasn't been posted up above yet:

"It is indeed difficult to imagine how men who have entirely renounced the habit of managing their own affairs could be successful in choosing those who ought to lead them. It is impossible to believe that a liberal, energetic, and wise government can ever emerge from the ballots of a nation of servants."

Man was a genius.

NK

RickB-- fantastic use of the word 'parlous'. I thought only high end Brit speakers used that word properly. Congrats.

glasater

Here's a "Carbonite" explanation.

May have been linked previously.

Clarice

We should stop paying any attention to what happens on theThe View. No one with an IQ over room temp ever watches it and appeals to reason with such idiots are as time wasting as trying to teach a dog to stop chasing cars.

If you tried to buy a Breitbart shirt and failed because of website problems big fur hat says anthem is unprepared for the volume of purchasers and we should just be patient. Actually, that's wonderful news.

Danube of Thought

I have Rush on the radio. Commercial for Lear Capital at the moment.

Gus

Carbonite, Sleep number/MattressTrain/ProFlowers, will never get my business. And I have patronized some of the aforementioned.
The cowardice involved is not my cup of tea.
Bad business decision and their free choice.

Ignatz

I think this George Neumayer article on Rush at AmSpec was linked earlier.

Contains this gem;

If anybody deserves an apology from Rush, it is prostitutes. They pay for their birth control themselves, and, unlike Fluke, they don't demand that the clergy underwrite their carnal activities.

Not Sara

I think Rush has addressed all very well. Now, on to the fight.

Danube of Thought

minus 18 and minus 12 are Raz's outer parameters, the median is about minus 14-15%

Depends how far you rewind the movie. Look at August through November.

OT-- ZeroHedge has a post about a Fed member inflation 'Hawk, ' Richard Fisher criticizing Wall Street for demanding more QE, and treating Fed money printing like a drug. really Mr Fisher? No Shite, you give someone free money (or anything else) and they become hooked. Who would have ever imagined! You know; it turns out these geniuses at the Fed are well credentialled morons. A crack street dealer had a better understanding of human nature than these idiots back in 2008-2009. The link:

DoT-- you are correct. But the 'strongly approve' numbers improved for 'Bam starting in December when he went ALL LEFT ALL THE TIME. he is predictably consolidating the leftwing base which will get him 45% of the vote -- as you know IMO that will also alienate at least 52% of the vote.

Not Sara

FWIW, McCain on a program this am said that Rush's comments were totally unacceptable and should be condemned.

narciso

I'm sure even Pt. Barnum is saying, I didn't mean it so literally when it comes to the View, Clarice. But as with Brooks, they are worth a mild unintended chuckle.

Good job on Megyn's Show just now by Kirsten Powers. Have to give her kudo's when she is bold enough to be honest.

Megyn: "Why do they get away with it (on the Left) when somebody like Rush does not?"

Powers: "Because this isn't really about mysogony Megyn, this is about the Democratic Party, and that's what it always comes down to. It's a proxy war for the Democratic Party. They can use it for the Election, for part of the War on Women, and they can attack Rush Limbaugh because they hate Rush Limbaugh because he's Conservative. It has nothing to do with mysogony or sexisim or anything like that because if it did they would flip out over Ed Schultz, over Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone who has said stuff literally you cannot repeat on the air it's so disgusting and he's done so much more than I even included in the article...So look they overlook it because they're Liberals and Liberal men are allowed to be mysogonists apparently."


Megyn: "So you don't think they are genuinely offended then by Rush, and they're not offended when they hear Bill Maher say these things, but they see an opportunity when a Conservative does it."

Powers: "Yeah. They see an opportunity. It's not that they're not offended. I do think they actually probably find it offensive. I can't imagine how you would read most of this stuff on somebody and they would say its not offensive."

Better watch out Kirsten you stupid s@#t. You're next.

I'm reminded of a very chatty and often wrong

Tammy Bruce claims that HBO is gripping on the backlash to Palin's portrayal in "Game Change" will torpedo their ratings so now they're pretending it's really more favorable toward her. Throughout a clip of some of the people involved in producing it backpeddling, teh Tam was just saying "Screw you".

centralcal

I just ordered my Breitbart t-shirt. I know some were having trouble getting in to the website, but it worked for me.

maryrose

The View is a prog arm of the Obama re-elect campaign. They can put show ponies like Fluke on and Obama can pretend to woo the ladies by singing but that does not insure his re-election. I agree with Rick Ballard. Obeewon's numbers must be horrific if they are resorting to these amateur tactics for the women's vote. He'll have his base and we must be vigilant to insure he doesn't steal that 5% he so desperately needs.

Jack is Back!

daddy,

As I pointed out yesterday, Kirsten Powers is a Bill and Hill cheerleader and apologist. This gives her a platform to show how badly Hillary has been maligned also by the left. With the Clintons, every story is in a way about them and don't you forget it.

OT: I did not know this but Barry Soetero had a Transgender Nanny when he lived in Indonesia.

When I was there even the little town where I was there was a collection of them that dressed up to the nines every night and hustled out on the main drag. They were called "billie boys". Any guy on R&R in Singapore is also familiar with Bugis Street in Singapore. Same guys:)

Oh c'mon. How can anybody miss Barbara telling you how to sleep your way to the top while having a speech defect which a modicum (not emoticom, McCanzz) of professionalism would dictate you correct;
Wawa is understandably sensitive about the term "slut", having been the Other Woman during the jungle fever phase of her bang the Senate period.

Well yes, that's true, and anyone who writes in the same publication as Andrew Sullivan,

NY Daily News:

Rush Limbaugh has lost three more advertisers after making caustic remarks about a female law student who advocated for expanded birth control insurance, showing that his bid to contain the firestorm - a rare public apology - has floundered.

Internet giant AOL and online tax consultant Tax Resolution Services said Monday they would suspend advertising on Limbaugh’s radio program, bringing to nine the tally of companies that have broken ties with the GOP pundit since he branded 30-year-old Sandra Fluke a “slut."

“At AOL one of our core values is that we act with integrity. We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values,” AOL said in a statement.

Michael Rozbruch, the founder and CEO of Tax Resolution Services, announced his decision on Twitter: “We have decided to join other advertisers and suspend our sponsorship of The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

Jack is Back!

Considering "whores", Moe Lane reminds us of this guy.

Wonder if TM will drop him as a sponsor?

Janet

From JiB's link -

"Evie, also known as Turdi, the former nanny of U.S. President Barack Obama, stands at the doorway of her room at a boarding house in Jakarta, Indonesia."
