News Roundup for 5/9/12

Rush Babes for America

-Headline of the Day-
"Limbaugh launches ‘babe’ outreach effort."

Faced with an ongoing boycott that's reportedly costing his affiliates millions, Rush Limbaugh has launched a counter-offensive -- a Facebook group called "Rush Babes for America." I'm not real clear on why they aren't "Babes for Rush" or what being for Limbaugh has to do with being for America, but whatever. At least he's finally figured out that something like "Rush Sluts for America" isn't going to fly. "Babes" is so much more classy and respectful.

And, according to the report, the whole effort has Rush's own brand of class all over it; "The group’s logo features a woman’s outline similar to the frolicking nude female figures cast in chrome on a trucker’s mud flaps. She is provocatively straddling Limbaugh’s 'EIB' seal, which stands for 'Excellence in Broadcasting.' The 'Rush Babes' Facebook profile photo features the logo printed on a yellow plastic 'Baby on Board' sign, emblazoned with the slogan, 'Rush Babe on Board.'" This is Trump-level class, to say the least, and is totally not sexist at all.

The fact that Rush is even trying at all shows you how badly the boycott is hurting. But I think he's probably going to have to try harder.

And maybe try being a little less of a sexist dick. (Raw Story)

These people set the standard for everyone else's textbooks.

Just sayin'. (Raw Story)
