33. Last week Clear Channel announced it would lay off 1,850 employees.

Yet, they signed a contract with Limbu$h in July for $400 million dollars.

What is wrong with this picture? This more than anything begs for us to bring back the high tier IRS tax rate of 90% so dickwads like him won't make those obscene salaries. This is what kept paychecks down back in the sixties for overrated entertainers, executives and other over payed nobodies. No one is worth that kind of money, especially him. It seems to me that his wages could pay to rehire all those laid off employees, who would stimulate the economy by spending their checks. You know Limbaugh can only spend so much and put the rest away in his nameless accounts in the Cayman Islands and Dubai.
