About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

And it just kinda says something - when you do it with a rubber chicken. MUCH better optics, and rawther metaphoric.

Yes. There IS a growing drumbeat about limbaugh's professional demise.

There have been conflicting reports this week that rush limbaugh is being dropped from the big important Chicago AM talker WLS. But the very fact that there are reports of any sort that are now making the rounds means there's clearly something to it. It wouldn't suddenly become the industry talk-of-the-town, as it were, unless something was up.

Indeed, here's another one, which I just found in the excellent LARadio.com! (Wonderful site for SoCal people who follow the local radio scene here. Highly recommended!) And then I went to the link, myself. Its top story:

Rush Limbaugh’s Fall Into Oblivion

The second story on the home page, after the one above, is this - with its hilarious title:
Talk Radio – Becoming the Weekend Laxative for Octogenarians



My mistake! I thought it was a feather duster they were bringing to the gunfight

for too many years. I stand corrected! Looks like it was actually a rubber chicken.

Well Gee Whiz - they're finally waking up about this.

Well whaddya know.

There's also "Advantage 2020" which is being headed by Mark Schauer, that's focusing on this.


I've decided that if I'm going to donate ANYWHERE, to anything, or to anybody in the months ahead, it's gonna be to THIS. Probably ONLY this.

Oh man! You sure this isn't in the Lounge?


LOVE the "Spocking" but nothing beats the "5-Dollar Bill Murray"!!!!!!


Welcome to DU, Geronimoe!

Glad you're here! Point taken. However, I find myself leaning toward the "this is pretty smart strategy by the Dems" camp. In a political world like this one, sometimes one has to hold one's nose to vote for something - explicitly for the sake of keeping the worse of the two OUT of power. And I have yet to see the perfect candidate. Even on our side. Sometimes you have to maneuver and play games. That's something our side traditionally hasn't been that good at doing lately. But they seem to be learning. And it's making the GOP look like somebody the baboons out of the zoo and they're running amok all over town now. At this point, I'll take ANYTHING that manages to paint them into a corner or otherwise hobble their agenda - and especially - ANYTHING that makes them look glaringly idiotic and incompetent to the maximum number of potential voters.

We heard a boatload during the reagan era about the so-called "11th Commandment" - which is "thou shalt not speak ill of another republi-CON." Perhaps it's time the Dems adopted an 11th Commandment of their own: "Thou Shalt Do NOTHING that Helps the Opposition Look Good."

Besides, it toys wickedly with this supposedly sacrosanct "hastert rule" that the GOP seems to cling to - that you-the-GOP-leader can only advance bills in the House if you have a majority of GOP votes behind you. And the "hastert rule" isn't really a cast-in-bronze rule or law or any such thing. It's merely a vanity statement. But the extremists want that, and every time their guy has to violate it to get anything done, it further traumatizes and confounds the whole camp, and anything that throws them into disarray and hissy fits is a good thing for the rest of us. It helps our side prove to America that the other side is spectacularly unfit to govern. And frequent reminders of this do help.

Indeed. I noticed that the clown car "patriots" are all beating that meme - "Failed Policies."

Yeeeeeaaaaaahhhh... let's dig down into that and see...

Hmmm... let's see how much of the bush/cheney mess has finally been cleared up? Let's see... the unemployment numbers keep dropping. What? We're down into the FIVE-PERCENT levels? Wages are rising - slowly, but the trend is now going up, not down. Even at fucking Walmart. Consumer confidence is back up. The deficit is cut by two thirds. He got us out of the TRILLION-DOLLAR level of debt. In six years. With all kinds of dead weight attached, and hurdles and piles of dogshit and other obstacles pushed into his way, and blocking and obstructing everything in sight.

Yep, sure sounds like a whole boatload of "failed policies" to me...

MAN are they tone-deaf on the GOP side.

How many times have we seen this by now, just these two months or so that these idiots and nincompoops have been in charge? How many different ways were they just sure they were about to have either the President or the Democrats at the end of a fork, only to wind up there, themselves?

And THESE are the dingdongs to whom the voters saw fit to hand the reins of power on Capitol Hill. They make the "gang who couldn't shoot straight" look like Olympic shooting champions.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph...

SO impressive, sheshe2 - yet ANOTHER great find.

"...what you tried to destroy, you only made stronger." AMAZING. This young woman is spectacularly eloquent. WONDERFUL read. GOOD for her! And her son. And "so man that really sucks for you bro. I truly hope it was worth it." GREAT statement.

And yes, truly, he IS a coward. Couldn't even look her in the eye, 'eh? They're ALL such cowards. They commit all these atrocities and can't even show their miserable fucking faces. Cowards. I don't care how many people's legs they blow up or heads they slice off. They're truly nothing but pitiful, sniveling, pathetic COWARDS. Hey, assholes, if what you're doing is so fearless and powerful and intimidating and somehow God-sanctioned, then take off your stupid fucking chickenshit coward masks and show your fucking faces to the world.

Does make you wonder, doesn't it.

SHEESH this is screwed! That police chief has to GO. HAS TO!!! He will NEVER change. Very likely because he doesn't see that he's doing anything wrong - at least that's how he strikes me from all the times I've seen him in the news. That mayor has to GO, too. And most of the representatives of that city have to GO, for that matter. The people desperately need to be represented better.

What a disgrace. American exceptionalism...
