Rush is down at least 36 advertisers, and radio insiders think they’re not coming back, so it’s audience preservation time for him. Since Sandra Fluke is a radioactive topic, he found another woman, Traci McMillan, whose book on the politics and economics of food inspired Rush to say:
What is it with all of these young single white women, overeducated — doesn’t mean intelligent.
My guess is that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have phrased it quite that way, Rick Santorum thought it was entertaining, and Newt Gingrich would call the act of cutting and pasting Rush’s words from yesterday’s transcript another example of how coastal elites are ruining this country.
There is one piece of good news for Rush: Ashley Madison offered to buy his canceled ad inventory. Ashley Madison is like OK Cupid for married people who want to cheat. Going from Geico, Citrix and Quicken to an adultery hook-up site in less than a week tells you all you need to know about the Rush’s near future on the radio.
