Unfortunate Rush Limbaugh billboard in Tucson
Edited on Thu Jan-13-11 01:40 PM by kpete

This is just north of Ina road on I-10 in north Tucson. I'm not trying to fan the flames, but this is just irresponsible. I know the talking heads (or radio) didn't pull the trigger, but they sure love to wash their hands of their irresponsible behavior, they keep saying they had nothing to do with this. Pump the masses with messages of get rid of or they are destroying our way of life and sure enough one crazy fan will eventually follow thru.

UPDATE: A reporter in Arizona tells us, "KNST tells me they took that billboard down at 9:30 a.m. Monday morning." Not quite quick enough to beat the internet.

2. Arizonans really need to telephone and write that
station telling them to take that sign down right away especially after the shootings on Saturday.

4. That's only metaphorical shooting he's talking about.
You know, the kind of metaphorical shooting that makes bullet holes.

7. Unfortunate, yes...but a very intentional use of imagery
and it is an imagery the right enjoys using.

They could have easily said straight talker (not that he is one)...instead they went for the imagery that appeals to a certain audience.

12. Whatever happened to "in the public interest?"
Maybe we should be asking our Congress crtitters to reform the FCC and make those using the publicly owned airwaves broadcast in the public interest again.

14. Draft-dodging Republicon drug users like Limbaugh always seem...
...to want to associate themselves with Macho crap.

They have sooooo much to compensate for...

17. Why, those aren't bullet holes!
Those are holes made by the rare moth, Arizonicus Shooticus Giganticus! Silly libruls!

21. The rest of the civilized world thinks were crazy.
With all these guns and guns rhetoric.
There's less talk of guns in somalia.
