You could hear the fear…

It is not my habit to listen to Wingnut blowhards. I don’t think I’ve listen to Rush Limbaugh for years, but on Friday afternoon I was driving around and noticed that it was about ten to three. So, I thought I would catch the last segment of his show. What I noticed was commercials–a lot of them. And that reminded me how the Limbaugh show was mostly a grift about getting rubes to open their wallets for this, that or the other pitch. Some were legitimate businesses–your mattress companies, your computer software or gadget and the like. Others were multi-level marketing deals with referral kick-backs for anybody who mentions the show when placing an order. And others–most of them it seems–were straight up grifts to fluff up Rushbo’s wallet and fund this or that aspect of the wingnut money machine. The legitimate advertisers are the cover for the grifters. They are the honey pot to attract the rubes to scams to fund the cons funding the CONsevative movement–and Rush is the sideshow barker saying anything to pull the rubes in the door so that their wallets can be relieved of their Dead Presidents.

By Friday afternoon, Rush had already double down on his slander of Sandra Fluke and he was feeling the pressure of the blowback. Sponsors/advertisers–the real businesses and not the wingnut grifters–were pulling their ads. Republicans everywhere were under pressure to condemn Rush’s slander and their fear of Rush was beginning to be offset by fears of an angry electorate in November. Within 24 hours, Rush would be forced to issue a non-apology apology and look weak. It would not stop the storm of outrage, but even that lame-ass word string was a signal of weakness from the Leader of the Republican Party and the CONservative movement. When the commercials finally ended and the Master blowhard took to the mic, you could hear his fear.

It was in every phrase. Every word. He was pleading. Whinny. And full of self-pity. He verbally thrashed and sought a scapegoat. Naturally he decided that all of his actions were President Obama’s fault. Fear was in his voice as he tried to craft an alternate reality where President Obama’s support for women to be in control of their health care choices forced poor old Rushbo to call Sandra Fluke a slut and a whore.

Doug is spot on. Limbaugh’s apology is a clear sign that we are winning and that it is time to kick them while they are down and hand them anchors, anvils and millstones.

The effort to get advertisers to pull their ads from Limbaugh’s show is working. If you haven’t joined the fun, I urge your to get involved. Here is a link to one Boycott Rush effort, and another, and another. I’m certain that there are more and that more will surface.

Getting the advertiser to separate from Rush is important. It hits him in the wallet, but more than that it removes the cover for all the other grifts he runs on his minions day after day. And it exposes every local radio station that caries the rat bastard to financial pressure and can send a warning flag to any advertiser supporting these stations. And Soonergrunt is correct to point out the effort to get Armed Forces Radio to stop carrying somebody who is so actively anti-American (you can help that effort here).

Every bully goes too far one day. For Joe McCarthy it was the Army-McCarthy Hearings. For Bobby Knight it was choking a player.. Perhaps–if our Nation is lucky–this is the end of the line for Rush Limbaugh. He knows he stepped in it. You can hear the fear in his voice. There is no justification for his bullshit any longer and anybody who defends him is a coward, a fool or both.

I could hear the fear in his voice and I think we should all do what we can do to make that fear grow in the coming weeks.

He is down from a self-inflicted wound and it is time to kick him.

Cheers

    I have never been able to understand the economic basis for RL’s income… his market share is drastically exaggerated, and most of his advertisers are not incredibly successful companies that are making a mint off a range of well designed, high margin goods. It is radio.

    My theory for over a decade now is that Clear Channel is paying RL a couple orders of magnitude more than he is worth, as a matter of puffing up a marquis star that enables the organization as a whole to demand higher fees for fees in other channels, billboards, and so on. It is the ultimate case of wingnut welfare.

    Yes indeed, it’s way past time to kick the Rushbo when he’s teetering.

    But it is even MORE important that Progressives have a counter-narrative. And quite honestly, we don’t have one that addresses the big problems facing Americans—jobs, fuel prices, climate change, ETC. FDR had the Keynesians generating an alternative narrative to the right-wing bullies. Who is today’s Keynes? Where are the universities that are teaching the new Keynes?

    I don’t see it either.

    Rush’s show is all about touting how brilliant he is, and how brilliant his dittoheads are for being willing to subject themselves to his brilliance each day, despite mind numbing repetitiveness and self-congratulatory babble.

    He’s in a tough spot, because he’s going to have to play the victim card hard to tell people why his advertisers are fleeing, and it’s hard to look brilliant when you’re playing the victim card too hard.

  4. 4

    I’m warming to the idea–but slowly. The fuel of the right wing imagination is often resentment and anger, and my sense in part is that Rush’s doubling-down is in part, martyr-baiting. He’s looking to be censured by the Left machine as an example of the kind of First Amendment-haters we “really” are. Not that he’s any more entitled to his radio show after using it to bully a college student and activist who has shown considerable poise in the face of it,, than he was entitled to a tv show or a place commenting on football (I had been awaiting an “Obama can’t quarterback” moment, but that is just too lightweight for his radio show’s general hate-viscosity). He’d just spread his hate to Sirius (perhaps, like Dr Laura) but retain a following of hardened acolytes.

    But then again, so what? At least a line would be drawn regarding what we can’t find acceptable as a society. Some part of his audience would possibly wake up without his voice in their heads. Long run, pulling the tick off the body politic is probably the right thing to do. And it serves as an example (just as he wanted to make of Ms. Fluke).

    Yawn, the truth is that Limbaugh’s influence has been waning for years. I honestly don’t know why you people keep giving him more attention than he deserves. You are only helping him. There is no such thing as bad attention when it comes to him. Boycott or not, if he get’s more attention he gets more listeners. If he gets more listeners the free market eventually responds with more advertising dollars.

    So you can keep fantasizing that by making him toxic you are somehow accomplishing something…you’re not in the long term. The best thing you can do is ignore him. Lack of attention is what hurts him. If he sees an increase in listeners over this he will only try come up with more outrageous stuff to piss you all off. That’s what he does. That’s all he does.

    It would be really really nice to get rid of Limbaugh.

    I think Rush affects the ditto-heads like a drug. If he were to be taken off the air, they would have to detox. After a period, they might even have to start thinking for themselves but that might be asking too much.

    IF Rush’s snit fit about making sure women have access to birth control destroys him, do you think the rest of the world just might think twice about fighting about contraception?

    We give him negative attention for the same reason that Rs try to say every D is cozy with moveon.org while highlighting the extreme positions moveon has taken — because it makes independents NOT want to be guilty by association.

    It doesn’t matter if Rush is “taken down.” In fact, he’s probably more useful than not to the Ds at this point. Let him play large turd, small bowl and stink up the R room so thoroughly that nobody with functioning neurons will want to go in there.

    So I wonder how many other people tweeted, Facebooked, blogged, whatevered their disgust, including names of advertisers. Is this the first social media takedown?

    its not about most of his listeners, be they many or a dwindle.

    its about the fact that actual people with actual power do not defy the limbaugh.

    its about him leading the onslaught from pundits bloggers trolls etc that push what he deals.

    @Watson: That doesn’t make any sense.

    First, how exactly is Dennis criticizing Rush supposed to lead to Rush getting more listeners? I seriously doubt anyone here was inspired by this post to start listening to his show, and it’s not as if there are a bunch of wingnuts out there who had never tried listening to Rush and are now going to do it because some random liberal blog doesn’t like him.

    But really it doesn’t matter how you explain your theory, because it’s being proven wrong right now. The kind of attention Rush is getting is demonstrably hurting him. Advertisers have pulled their business, and they wouldn’t have done it if lots of people hadn’t publicly made a stink. Even if Rush somehow gained listeners due to this negative attention, he can’t make money from those listeners without advertisers.

    Interesting theory, but probably wrong. Although some commercials are tailored for Rush, the bulk of the inventory is repeated on other Clear Channel radio stations, including, for example progressive radio station KTLK in the Los Angeles market.

    If you listen to more radio, you might notice stations bragging that they have more long commercial free segments. This, as well as the increasing number of crap commercials, is a direct reflection of the bad economy. There are fewer good advertisers around. Rush’s wingnuts are fed grift, but probably not much more than the goobers who listen to sports radio.

    I agree with others that Rush may be losing his appeal, even though he continues to attract a loyal core. Dr Laura got kicked to the curb because she was no longer pulling big numbers in major markets. And one of the things keeping Rush going is the sad fact that much of the potential competition is incredibly weak.

    Comrade Baron Elmo says:

    I honestly wonder if Rushbo isn’t doing a little freelance sabotage on the GOP. He’s certainly causing them more damage than good these days, and I’m beginning to suspect that it’s intentional – that his true motive is to poison the Republican well for everyone but millionaires, bible-beaters and straight white guys who think America would be a great country if it weren’t for all the damn blacks, beaners and homos.

    After all, an Obama victory would be a much happier outcome for Rush-the-pundit than a win from one of the Repub goobers scrambling for the throne… just as Obama’s win in 2008 revitalized Rush’s show and ratings like nothing in years. Which is more satisfying for a man like Limbaugh: calling down plague and pestilence on the Kenyan Usurper, or resignedly pumping stale air into the leaky tire of a President Romney?

    The Bobby Knight example is just not fair. I watched that incident several times, and from what I can conclude, the kid was being a deliberately disrespectful little shitbag by calling Knight by his last name only, not Coach Knight, but just Knight, like he was back on the block, and not playing for Bobby’s team. My father is one of those old school teachers, he used to pick up kids by their hair, throw chalk & erasers at them, and stuff wet paper towels in their mouths when they were talking during his class. My Dad moved to Lubbock when I joined the Marine Corps back in 1986, & when Bobby Knight came to Texas Tech to coach basketball, became a pretty good friend of my Dad’s. From what I can see, the cocky little asswipe deserved it, & my father agrees with me. From what Bobby told us, he didn’t mean to grab the kid by the throat, he was trying to grab his jersey, but the shithead wiggled away from him just as he was reaching for him, & you know the rest. Say what you will, I have a pretty finely tuned asshole-detector from my years in the Marines, but I think Bob Knight’s an okay guy.

    Anyone who ever saw the movie, “A Face in the Crowd”, remembers the bad ending that came to Lonesome Rhodes. But the best part was the last speech by Walter Matthau, who told old Lonesome that people would eventually forget his horrible actions on the air, that he would get another chance at a program, but next time it wouldn’t be in prime time or with so many trimmings…that eventually he’d just sort of fade away until the day someone asked, “Whatever happened to Lonesome Rhodes?” But he also said that by that time there would be another clown that would come along, even bigger and better. I think that Rush will fade away, just as his audience of old white guys is fading away. But there is always the next big thing to come along, the next really awful shock jock, which is really all that he is. But I will certainly enjoy the process of watching him fade. He is one of the worst human beings I’ve ever run across, a real sociopath.

    As for this and other comments minimizing the importance of taking down Limbaugh or expending effort on him, I just have to ask: really? I mean, really?

    Sure, if we manage to take Limbaugh off the air or even severely diminish him, some other right-wing gasbag will step in to fill the niche. They are meeting a real demand, after all.

    But no other gasbag has the influence, connections, market penetration or aura of untouchability that Limbaugh has enjoyed for decades. No one could simply step into Limbaugh’s role and inherit his credibility among wingnuts.
