The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh Bleeding 3 More Advertisers Over Fluke Slut Slurs: From Denny:  This week the Rush Limbaugh show bled three more advertisers: Kohler, Fisher Nuts and Reputation.com, an online reputations management and Internet privacy service.  The tally is now up to 145.  Many were regional and local advertisers.  He still enjoys 9 permanent national advertisers, though 3 seem shaky.

It's been a month since the uproar push back from women started with Limbaugh throwing out his slut, prostitute and whore slurs of Sandra Fluke in a three day diatribe that infuriated the nation.

For 53 of Rush Limbaugh's smear attacks on Sandra Fluke, go to this link on youtube. (If you can stomach hearing it all.)

One amusing development is that this uproar forced Limbaugh to hire a crisis consultant.  "Ya think?"

The Social Poets: Jon Stewart Mocks The Trayvon Martin Hoodie Threat: From Denny:  Jon Stewart lampoons hoodie wearing supportive journalists and politicians trying to join the trending and popular national conversation demanding a proper investigation into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, a young black man deemed suspicious as he walked through a neighborhood wearing a hoodie.  Amazingly, without the public outcry and national pressure, the police had no intention of investigating the crime.

The Social Poets: Caustic Christians Promoting Hate Endorsed By GOP Candidates

The Social Poets: Caustic Christians Promoting Hate Endorsed By GOP Candidates: From Denny:  A Louisiana pastor, affiliated with the Rush Limbaugh Hate Merchant class, introduced Rick Santorum at his church when the Republican campaigned here in my town of Baton Rouge.

Of course, my fellow Democrats across the nation erupted in outrage.  I yawned at the fist-pounding rhetoric reminiscent of Nikita Khrushchev pounding his shoe against President Kennedy in the 1960's.  Apparently, shoe slapping is a popular anger release in many cultures.

Dennys: News Politics Comedy Science Arts & Food: Fun St. Patricks Day Facts To Ponder While You Swill Green Beer: From Denny:  Mardi Gras just happened last month, and, well, Lent can be a dull affair while we are waiting for Easter.  So, why not spice it up with some St. Patrick's Day frivolity and celebration?

South Louisiana is primarily Catholic and we like our champion demon-chasing warrior saints. Honoring him is serious business.

Here in Louisiana we celebrate with none other than a St. Patrick's Day Parade, complete with official bead-throwing and green beer freely flowing.

Since all good holy days have a serious component along with the feasting here's some brain food to feed you too.  Be sure to check out my other St. Patrick's Day posts at the end of this post.  Lots of interesting historical trivia, quotes, poems, Irish blessings and funny thoughts too.

The Social Poets: International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World




The Social Poets: International Womens Day: Whats Happening Around The World: From Denny:  Women are in crisis around the globe this year - from the Middle East to Europe to America.  For the Middle East it is about torture, malicious prosecution, unjust imprisonment and the selling into prostitution and slavery of both women and their children.

For America it is about dealing with the Hate Merchants women are expected to shrug off and endure as it contributes to domestic abuse, unequal pay and hiring in the work place and vicious gang rape in our military.  In Europe women are dealing with a deep economic crisis that is rocking the foundations of society, robbing hope for the next generation's prosperity.

Dennys Global Politics: Egypt: Revolution Loses Meaning As Women Denied Rights, Role in Society

Dennys Global Politics: Egypt: Revolution Loses Meaning As Women Denied Rights, Role in Society: From Denny:  Egypt held so much hope for the world when the Arab Spring broke out last year, toppling the regime.

Then reality set in.  The very women that protected the men who marched, the very women who gave medical aid and money to help the revolution, were turned upon and denied their respect and freedom.

The protesters took it all and gave nothing in return by denying women a seat at the table while they restructured the national government.  The former male protesters and the Egyptian military council refused the concepts of generosity, kindness, partnership and equality.  To the women, the protesters and the military are no different than the regime:  all deny freedom and equal rights to women.

The Social Poets: Rush Limbaugh: Who Are Still Running Ads? 49 Companies Left: From Denny:  As Rush Limbaugh denies his advertisers are leaving like rats off a sinking ship, to date there are 49 companies, two radio stations and one advertising agency no longer willing to place ads with his show.

There are also some porn industry sites that have stepped up to support their fellow Pervert in Chief Limbaugh.

Check out the perverts stepping up to advertise on Limbaugh's show.  Perverts support other perverts:

Dennys Global Politics: Is Rush Limbaugh Rhetoric Reason for Violence Against Women In Military?

Dennys Global Politics: Is Rush Limbaugh Rhetoric Reason for Violence Against Women In Military?: From Denny: In another version of stupid, the Pentagon continues to air the Rush Limbaugh Show, refusing to cancel it, insulting American women in and out of uniform. Pentagon press secretary, George Little, sees no reason why the American Forces Network should stop broadcasting Rush Limbaugh's show.

Little claims the show is popular with service members and that there is no plan to review that decision. Because this incendiary crap is popular you refuse to get rid of it? It's no wonder the Afghans are so furious with your insensitivity.

You see, it is apparently the Defense Department's policy to broadcast shows that "reflect a wide range of opinion." So, I guess they should consider giving air time to the Ku Klux Klan? How is this situation any different than inciting violence against blacks? Hey, let's give air time to The Taliban. I'm sure there are plenty of service members who want to hear from their warped point of view too.

The Social Poets: 10 Advertisers Flee Pervert Rush Limbaugh After Weekend Excuses Speech Masquerades As Apology

The Social Poets: 10 Advertisers Flee Pervert Rush Limbaugh After Weekend Excuses Speech Masquerades As Apology: From Denny: In an attempt to stem the angry national tsunami against him, Rush Limbaugh offered up a Pandora's box of lame excuses, claiming it was a sincere apology. His excuses came this weekend when the media wasn't watching closely - or so he thought.


What is the truth about number of Rush listeners?


For a radio talk show host that will not publicly verify his claim of 20 million listeners on 600 stations nationally, Rush Limbaugh's boat is rocking fast and furious as advertisers flee from the firestorm. To date, sometimes literally abandoning ship by the hour, there are now ten advertisers to leave his show or suspend their advertising.

The Social Poets: Obama Speaks To Hate Merchants, Rush Limbaugh Insults To Women

The Social Poets: Obama Speaks To Hate Merchants, Rush Limbaugh Insults To Women: From Denny: Rush Limbaugh refuses to apologize for "slut, prostitute and whore" comments against American women in general and against Sandra Fluke in particular. President Obama jumped into the fray, denying Limbaugh any satisfaction, phoning law student Fluke for an encouraging conversation.

Georgetown law student, Sandra Fluke, was prohibited from testifying to a House committee about support of government mandated contraceptive health care coverage.

The Republicans refused to allow any woman to testify unless they chose said woman for the all male religious panel that amounted to a predetermined outcome kangaroo court. The female politicians in the House were outraged so they held their own hearing for Fluke to testify publicly and honestly without editing from the Republicans preventing her liberty and free speech.
