Flushing Rush, the titular head of the pariah party

Flushing Rush, the titular head of the pariah party

We're in a new era. Social media allowed citizens to repudiate the war on women launched nine months ago by Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh initiated the climate of hate with his attack on Sandra Fluke in the immediate aftermath of Komen's attempt to defund Planned Parenthood. Now we have irrefutable evidence of where our society stands on women's rights, and on attacks against their dignity:

Joe Walsh, Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Roger Rivard lost their elections. Barack Obama defeated the guy who wouldn't stand up to the haters. Claire McCaskill, Tammy Duckworth, Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Baldwin won.

In one of the most important demographics, single women "far and away the single demographic group most likely" to support Obama, and many of whom Rush routinely refers to as "feminazis" voted against Romney by the astonishing metric of 68 percent.

Big money didn't carry this election, social media did. Social media will dictate who wins and who loses, from now until forever. Social media is people power, in a way that has never before existed. For more of Flushing Rush, click here
