This is at Salon this week: Limbaugh, in case you’d forgotten, called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” after the Georgetown University student spoke out in support of insurance mandates for contraceptives. He later apologized – profusely so – but the damage was done. … Continue reading

Obamageddon Cancelled: Rush Limbaugh’s and Sean Hannity’s Chicken Little Hysteria Act Over What an Obama Cabinet Would Look Like Proves Utterly Divorced from Reality
All through 2008, the far-right cried like Chicken Little about Obama being a secret Muslim, communist, and terrorist, and in their racism insinuated that he’d appoint a cabinet full of scary names (to conservatives) like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. … Continue reading
