The Persistence of Memory

goldfishYou probably don't realize this but the Rush Limbaugh Show is given to radio stations to play for free.

That's right, free.

In exchange, the stations have to devote several minutes during breaks in the show to national advertising, the revenue of which mostly funnels directly into Rush's pockets.

Today Premier Networks, Limbaugh's syndicator, told its affiliate stations that they would be suspending national ads for two weeks, so the resultant dead air during his show is now the local stations problem to deal with.

Two weeks is an odd number to pull out of a hat but, as likely as not, it's the bean-counters was of saying "You morons out there are incapable of sustaining disgust for anything for more than two weeks."

Wanna bet?

The oddest thing to result from this debacle is that, for now anyway, I have more national ads on this web site than Rush has on his radio program. <Grin>.

you're a slutMany newspapers have chosen to censor or remove this week's Doonesbury cartoon from the comics pages as it had the audacity to satirize the new and onerous abortion laws being rammed down our throats by overzealous Republicans nimrods.

Note 1: How real people use Windows 8. (Bonus: Adorable two-year-old child using iPad.)

Note 2: While we're playing "Dog-Pile On Rush Limbaugh" how about a few examples of his habitual dishonesty?

Note 3: If all of the people arrested on drug charges refused to accept plea bargains it would crash the legal system. I LIKE that idea!

Note 4: The pink tabs are for murder, purple for human or animal sacrifice, blue for rape, yellow for slavery, and green for misogyny.

Note 5: Holy crap! A 3D printer with nanoscale precision!

Note 6: Say "Hello!" to Rick Santorum!

Me: Golly! That Sandra Fluke is certainly one virtuous and wholesome human!

Typically poor-as-all-fuck cartoonist mistakenly assuming that if Rush Limbaugh lost all of his advertisers after calling
Ms. Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” then casting her in a more favorable light will inevitably result in a flood of lavish corporate sponsorships for himself.
