Rush Babes Rule America – NAGS Fail

http://www.facebook.com/RushBabesforAmerica

Conservative radio host Rush  Limbaugh’s latest jab at the National Organization for Women has attracted  more Facebook “likes” in 24 hours than NOW’s main page has collected in a  little under four years.

Limbaugh’s new “Rush Babes for America” Facebook page – also known as “The National Organization of Rush Babes” — was open for  public viewing just prior to the beginning of his radio program Tuesday. He  announced it in the third hour of his show, between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. EDT.

Irene, the hurricane that was — well, a tropical storm

Hurricane Irene was downgraded to a tropical storm Sunday morning as it made landfall over New York’s Coney Island with winds clocking 65 mph.

I was watching this yesterday and I am in doubt if it was even a hurricane when it first hit landfall.  If so, it certainly was not after that.  You could see there was no eye, that it had already broken apart.

Which is to be expected.  You just can’t tell what a hurricane will do.  That’s the hard part.  To evacuate or not to evacuate? To leave or ride it out?  This is what happens, over and over again the alarm is sounded and nothing happens.

Bloomberg and Christie are all over the place demanding people leave their homes.  Even Obama got pried out of his vacation to make an appearance at where?  FEMA headquarters.  Has he yet acknowledged Joplin?

At the coordination center, Obama said getting through the storm will be a “tough slog.”  (Get a load of the specially made up FEMA Barack Obama name plate, in case anybody wondered if it was a photo op.)

But what is most interesting is the way the media just keeps up the hype.  All day yesterday you see what has to be staged “reports” and they fog up the camera and splash water on the lenses, maybe even fake wind noise to make it look like they are in the midst of the most ominous storm ever.  They had Julie Banderas on camera in New York in perfect makeup all covered up with cap and designer raincoat and I don’t think there was a drop of water anywhere.  Somebody, I think it might have been the police chief, came on later in shirtsleeves and no hat or cap and shamed her into taking the hood down.

MSNBC calls in the big guns with Brian Williams anchoring and Al Roker on the seashore in rain gear, walking along the shore in Long Island.  Shep Smith working all weekend.  Geraldo wading in puddles in the streets of NYC last night.

Just a big media production.  And this morning, I see they finally downgraded it to a tropical storm.

Ever since Katrina was made into a big political weapon against George Bush, they have boxed themselves in. It’s not about safety, they don’t care a hoot about the safety of the people, it’s not about anything but these politicians trying to cover their asses in case something horrible happens and, of course, these states are all about collecting federal money.  The higher the winds, the more damage, the more disaster money they get.  (I wonder if the number of people without electricity also is a marker as to amount of disaster money.  Seems to be an important number…..)

That’s not to say hurricanes can’t be disastrous and horrific.  They can.  But there have been hurricanes since the beginning of time.  You do the best you can, but nobody, and I mean nobody, knows what they are going to do.

They all need to just get a little humility and admit they missed it this time.

Glenn Beck’s final show and Casey Anthony trial capture high rating numbers

Glenn Beck averaged 2.175 million viewers (542,000 adults 25-54) in his final episode. While up from recent history, far off his highs when he cleared 3 million viewers. Still, Beck was second on Fox News to only The O’Reilly Factor for the night (2.54 million viewers, 559,000 A25-54).

The Casey Anthony trial continues to be a boon for HLN as it again topped adults 25-54 for both total day and primetime. Nancy Grace led the cable news nets in primetime with 677,000 adults 25-54.

Funny: Glenn Beck uncomfortable with Trump

Well.  Donald Trump is making Glenn Beck “a little uncomfortable.”  That is too funny.  Who is he trying to fool?   I laughed out loud at this one.

I’ll tell you what, I like them both.  It is a wonderful thing to hear a man speak out and I don’t much care what he says.  It’s more that he has the guts to do it.  I can sort it all out for myself.  But I cannot stand a mealy mouthed, side-stepping. double-talking man who seems scared of his own shadow.  

So Glenn Beck, for this one time I think you need to shut up.  In fact, when you said this you yourself were a little mealymouthed and didn’t say it with much conviction.  You might want to stay away from Bill O’Reilly because he’s one of the guys who will do anything to get an interview with the president.  He covers it up pretty well, but he craves invites to the white house and will do just about anything to get the ratings. including throwing up the pole dancers every chance he gets.

And Donald Trump, you just keep on talking, baby.  Keep on talking. 

 Fox News host Glenn Beck said Friday night that Donald Trump has been making him “a little uncomfortable recently” with some of the wilder claims he’s made about President Barack Obama.

Leland Yee launches hit job on Limbaugh for joking about leader of communist China

Yee inserted himself in this situation.  Nobody was talking to him.  He just wants to play the victim as he has before.

He has accused Sarah Palin supporters of making threats to him, he tried to link a threat he claims to have received to the Tucson shooting, and now he is trying to blame a Rush Limbaugh fan for a threat.  Give me a break.  Reeks to High Heaven

You just never know what you might run across.  I was looking for comparisons of Reagan to Palin and found this website called “Reagan to Palin.”  So I got distracted on this:

Leland Yee is all in a silly little dither over Rush Limbaugh trying to sound like Hu without an interpreter.  Mr. Yee seems to be offended over this and demands an apology (which, thank goodness, is not forthcoming) and since that didn’t work, he is calling for a boycott on Rush’s sponsors.  That hasn’t gotten much traction so he now claims he got a very nasty fax threatening him from “a Rush fan.”  I don’t know, maybe it’s real but I wouldn’t put money on it.  I started to say, “Oh, no, he caught me!”  (Smile)  Not really.  Not really.  I’m kidding.  Don’t send out the FBI.  I would bet money it turns out to be a plant or was sent by someone from the loving left.

Mr. Yee seems to be a literal magnet for threats.  He received threats a few years ago because he sponsored a bill to ban or limit violent video games.  You can’t take away the children’s video games without raising some anger, he should know that, even though it may be a good idea.

Then he claims to have received threats by Palin supporters in regards to this dumpster diving incident where they supposedly found a contract or something in the trash.  Don’t remember it and don’t know all the details, but I’m linking to this post at Reagan to Palin.com.

I see where he also claimed to receive death threats he thought were connected to the Tucson shooting.  Sarah Palin again, I guess.  Now, he’s in San Francisco, mind you, but he has Arizona looking into it.  But you just never know whose hands that map with targets on it may have fallen into.  Maybe one actually made it to San Francisco, who knows.  Or did somebody say “reload.”

Of course, you ask Glenn Beck how many threats he gets, and he says he has 15 or more at any given moment.  And I’m sure all public figures get them.  Just imagine, if you can, the number of death threats Sarah Palin has received, along with her children who are hated for no reason whatsoever.   Michelle Malkin has published a lot of her’s.

I do believe Mr. Yee is just looking for attention. If he thought he was in danger, he should report it, but does he have to make it a big media event? No.

I don’t know Mr. Yee, never heard of him, but this article says he is a democrat darling along the lines of Nancy Pelosi and that just about says it all.  Somebody dug up some background on him as follows:

First of all the California legislative member, and political friend of Nancy Pelosi, is Sen. Leland Yee.  He is little more than a far-left gadfly who helped preside over the pending financial collapse of the state of California.  But, that’s not all.  Mr. Yee, now an American citizen but Chinese by birth, attended college at UC BERKLEY which would account for many of his radical views.  He represents a politically carved out district in San Francisco and served on the School Board there at one time.

Over the years, however, Senator Yee has engaged in questionable conduct:  Three police encounters over cruising for prostitutes in San Francisco’s Mission District, a 1993 shop lifting incident, and an investigation found that Lee’s taxpayer owned computers were the source for repeated attempts to re-write Lee’s WIKIPEDIA biography to exclude his legal problems and build up his reputation.

Palin hater & Pelosi friend, radical and discredited California State Senator Leland Yee (Police run-ins over prostitution & shop lifting)

Mr. Yee got his feelings hurt over something he probably did not hear to begin with.  And it’s really too bad.  He is the one who brought attention to himself.  If these people  would just stop listening to someone or some program they don’t like, they would save themselves a world of grief.  But I can tell you that it hurts my feelings when he and others vilify and lie about Sarah Palin, because she represents me.  And I like Rush, too, a lot.  He and Palin both build up the country that gives these mean-spirited people the right to speak their minds.  But for some reason, they don’t want anybody else to speak.

So, there you go.  Mr. Leland Yee.  Lay off Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.  You know, it’s not civil nor nice to try to hurt somebody because they don’t agree with you or because some of us can laugh at ourselves and take a joke, or because you think it might elevate you to link to their names.  Maybe you should not take yourself quite so seriously.  Like I said before, some of you are wrapped way too tight.  Had you just laughed it off, nobody would have ever linked you to Rush Limbaugh.  And, again, he was not talking about YOU.  He was making a joke about the leader of Communist China, Hu Jintao.

To quote AWR Hawkin at Big Journalism on January 31, 2011:

“Hu Jintao carries on the “proud” tradition of Mao Tse-Tung and the real shame is not that Limbaugh translated the speech phonically, but that Democrats continue to defend Communist thugs and dictators.

Limbaugh has successfully outsmarted the CHICOMS and their sympathizers once more.”

MONDAY MORNING HIGHLIGHTS

Just caught a few points from Morning Joe:

Mike Allen, Politico and Journolist, said the democrats were saying “What republican surge?” because early voters seem to be heavily registered democrat.  Only thing is they are voting Republican!!  Ha.

For that, Mika says the country is in decline.  She’s going to need to be deprogrammed.

Latest poll:  Alan Grayson  36 – Daniel Webster – 43

They think NPR made a mistake in firing Juan Williams. Bigger mistake to stand by the decision.   Joe says the CEO should be fired.   I guess that would be Ms. Shiller.

Joe kept saying he is appalled that Obama did not meet with Mitch Mc’Connell until August – a full 18 months.
