The thread he is talking about is here and worth the read.

10. Limbaugh's current contract terms have not been revealed. Previously, he got $60 million a year.

Yet he was actually losing money in many markets because advertisers did not want to be associated with him.

I wonder if his continuance is paid for by private entities.

9. Try *The Ladykillers*...

...alas, since I love Tom Hanks. I also am no admirer of *Brother, Where Art Thou*, though I'm well aware I'm in a small minority here...

8. Not only did the GOP sell out their country

They sold it cheap. The Soviet Union never realized that they could have won the Cold War for less than the cost of one missile if they had just invested it in bribing Republican leaders instead.

Russians Used Greed to ‘Capture’ NRA, Senator Alleges in New Report

When the NRA visited Moscow in 2015, it wasn’t just to strengthen ties to Putin allies. A new Senate report says it was about making money, too.

15. That pic is cropped: Pence is in the left with just his shoulder jutting in. Not your fault...

...but unforgettable once seen. That holier-than-thou bastard is in this up to his neck.

16. Makes perfect sense.. getting elected is expensive.. If you had a sugar daddy to help pay..

Politicians are always complaining that half their time in washington is spent on the phone begging for money.. If you have a sugar daddy to pay for your elections you can spend more time getting down to business... Repukes have this down to a science.
