You won't find any of them under Fatso's big tent.

4. Hmm. If Rush thinks women have been ruined

 

I guess that must mean he no longer likes women.

Wow, I never saw that coming.

6. Submission women

I've been married to Republican for 38 years, and believe me, it hasn't been because I have been SUBMISSION. Marriage is a mutual aide society, which he found out when he was 60 and I was gone in another state for 3 years.

7. I listened to the bloviator in this clip.

 

He's quoting from an op-ed written by what he calls a prominent feminist named Camille Paglia. Very little of what he's saying is his own opinion here, he's using her words to back up his viewpoint.

Not that I want to pick up for pigboy but those are the facts.

9. If you Google Paglia, you'll find that she has an impressive background but has often

been criticized by other well known, intellectual feminists. Not that Limbaugh would know that. It is amusing that this would be the Limbaugh show's selection.

12. Deliberate. Rush's writers know that Paglia's material offers lots of opportunities

to ridicule feminists for extremist viewpoints. By choosing an academic feminist who writes things that most feminists consider extreme, it provides fodder for Rush's "feminazi" thesis that all feminists are extremists.

14. Undoubtedly! Extreme or erroneous.

Just think of the decades of misinformation and hatred this man has distributed. Decades! There are people who have grown up listening to him.

24. Camille Paglia

is a fraud and a hack. She represents feminists about as much as Arne Duncan represents education reform. The MSM, which wouldn't know a real feminist if they burned their bras in front of them, call on her from time to time every time they want a feminists viewpoint. Apparently, they've never heard of Gloria Steinem --the REAL thing.

8. No, Rush.

Women aren't ruined, at least not in general. Perhaps for you they are, though. Pig.

11. Reworded he is saying that female intellectuals ruined women.

So women ruined themselves.

One little flaw in that statement. They're not ruined, at least no more than men are. I am a grad student and know lots of feminists (some of whom are men) and they are all fucking brilliant.

So if that makes them ruined, then I hope we can all be thoroughly and irreversibly ruined.

If "ruining" means they got smart enough to not put up with him.

19. I understand Limbaugh's schtick and the way he has made his money,

but considering his problems with women, coupled with his lack of higher education--could this be somewhat personal?

30. He's just ticked we voted in such large numbers for Obama.

With surrogates like Rush speaking for the GOP, that will not change anytime soon.
