Rush Limbaugh is the spokesperson for the 35 to 45% of America that is right wing, and he is the spokesperson for the Republican Party.
He is insane, the people he speaks for are batshit crazy, and the lockstep GOP does exactly what he tells them to do, without exception. Most of us would prefer to see Limbaugh and his followers shipped off to some other land because we really don’t want them or need them here. But, they do buy stuff so Limbaugh;s over the top offensive and idiotic show has a lot of sponsors.
Or did, anyway. As you know, recently, Limbaugh jumped the shark and went so overboard in his senseless, mean spirited and verbally offensive and violent attack on a fellow citizen who was merely speaking her mind (which is mostly still legal in this country despite the efforts of the aforementioned 34 – 45% batshit crazy faction to see otherwise), and those advertisers left him when the rest of the country told them that we’ve had enough the idiot.
And that is when Westboro Baptist Church moved in to buy an ad spot for its “God Hates Fags” campaign. The church has made the claim that Limbaugh and Wesboro Baptist have some sort of link. This does not surprise.
Apparently, the company that owns Limbaugh’s show has stepped in and refused to take the offensive drek that Westboro had proposed to air on Limbaugh’s failing show.
