Whoa, we’re getting down to brass tacks here. In one corner, we have Noted Cro-Mag and All Around Conservative H.R. Puff-N-Stuff Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh’s been blathering over the airwaves for years, spewing his particular brand of toxic anti-lady crap. It’s Rush’s completely bombastic misogynistic drivel that’s taken him all the way from the Sweet 16 of our Real March Madness competition down to the Final Four. And what with the drama of Slut/Whoregate 2012, it’s really been a banner year for Ol’ Rush. Even so, does Rush have the stuff to take on what might be one of our most bonafide wackadoodle entries in the competition? I’m talking about Carrie, the cancer-stricken woman who appeared on “My Strange Addiction” to detail how she drinks her own pee in order to stave off the disease. There’s being a jerk and then there’s being absolutely off-the-rails delusional. So, you tell us — which is crazier? Vote now!

After Round One of March Madness, it seems that our fair friend Rush Limbaugh trounced his conservo-pal Kirk Cameron. He beat Cameron in the crazy competition by nearly 6 to 1. Rush’s anti-woman, anti-slut diatribes now go up against our favorite honey boo-boo child, Alana, the Go-Go Juice chugging beauty pageant tyke from “Toddlers and Tiaras.” Rush would no doubt be disgusted by Alana’s antics, and Alana would likely be completely immune to Rush’s taunts (whatever you say about her, she does have insanely high self-esteem). But whose existence is more mind-boggling? More utterly confusing and bewildering? Vote!

In one corner we have Rush Limbaugh, the blowhardy conservative talk radio host who recently referred to law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” because she wanted to testify on Capitol Hill about birth control. To wit, Rush said, “If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch.” Stay classy. In the other corner, we have former “Growing Pains” teen hearthrob Kirk Cameron, who told Piers Morgan that he believes homosexuality is a pox on the Earth. ”I think that it’s … unnatural,” he said. “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

God bless Gloria Allred: the attorney has fired off a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office to notify them that their most noxious resident, Rush Limbaugh, broke the law. (Again.) It turns out Florida has an obscure defamation statue classifying the “false and malicious questioning of a woman’s chastity” as a misdemeanor. Which, of course, is exactly with Limbaugh did when he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his nationally syndicated radio recorded in Florida.
Let’s be real: Florida should repeal such a sexist law. I mean, really, “a woman’s chastity”? But I’m not going to be pretend I would be tickled if Rush Limbaugh did get in trubs for defamation. [Huffington Post]
One spring afternoon when I was in high school in New York City, I had a bizarre health scare. A friend and I had been lounging by the Hudson River pretending to read and philosophize but really gossiping about our schoolmates — acting exactly our age.
That afternoon, I had miserable symptoms as I always did when I had my period. So I popped some handy painkillers, waited for them to work, gritted my teeth, yakked some more with my friend, and then went home. Later that evening I noticed myself itching at the hairline, then on my face. Within an hour, I was completely covered with distinct red polka dots which would have been cute on a dress, but were horrifying on my skin. Hurriedly I showered, took Benadryl, and woke up fine the next morning. I assumed it had been a reaction to something on the ground or a tree.
But then it happened again the next time I had my period. So my mother, like the good Jewish mom that she is, marched me to the doctor. There I learned I was allergic to anti-inflammatory medicines: Aspirin, Advil, Aleeve, Motrin and their equivalents. I could only take Tylenol, which didn’t help nearly as much as the other pills had.
This newly-diagnosed allergy posed a big problem. Keep reading »
This lion Mary is a total whore. She had sex with both a tiger and lion and then gave birth to a tigon cub and a lion cub. It’s a world’s first! But obviously the important part is that this lion has two baby daddies. What. A. Slut.
“I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about. Even ones I may not agree with them on. I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens. And I wanted Sandra to know that I thought her parents should be proud of her. And that we want to send a message to all our young people that being part of a democracy involves arguments and disagreements and debate. And we want you to be engaged. And there’s a way to do it that doesn’t involve you being demeaned and insulted, particularly when you’re a private citizen.”
- Now that he’s wagged his finger at brazen hussies, Rush Limbaugh is fulminating about “overeducated white women.” Yes, today Rush railed against the author Tracie McMillan, who wrote a new book on food inequality called The American Way Of Eating: Undercover At Wal-mart, Applebee’s, Farm Fields, And The Dinner Table. Apparently he is offended that this 1999 NYU grad wrote a book about food inequality when she studied political science in school, or something? I’m not even sure. Anyway, this is what he said today: “What is it with all these young, single white women? Overeducated doesn’t mean intelligent.” But at least he didn’t call her a slut, right? [Media Matters]
- Speaking of Rush, as of this afternoon, a total of 32 advertisers have dropped from Rush’s radio show, including AOL, Sears, Allstate Insurance, Geico, and John Deere. Check the link for the full list. [Think Progress]
- Eight current and former women in the U.S. military allege they were raped, assaulted or harassed while serving their country and retaliated against when they reported the abuse. [AP]

Not sure if you’re what Rush Limbaugh considers a slut? Mother Jones has put together this handy flowchart which should clear up any confusion for you. (Hint: if you have a vagina, things aren’t looking good.) [Mother Jones]
Jon Stewart took on Rush Limbaugh’s “slut” slur on last night’s show and put it best, as always: “Personally, I don’t get too worked up by the things Rush Limbaugh says because he is, and has been for many years, a terrible person.” This is so amazing, I have nothing better to say than put your headphones on and watch it.
