    ...even "controversial" opinions I don't like. It smacks of suppression of speech.

    I make a few exceptions in exceptional circumstances. Rush Limbaugh meets those criteria in spades and has for years now. Rush Limbaugh, in the great scheme of things, is a nobody. An extremely fortunate, right place-right time, had-an-idea-which-paid-off, RICH nobody, but a nobody nonetheless.

    But he is a dangerous nobody, to my ears. I don't feel alone in that opinion.

    He's dangerous because the few idiots who still listen to him are boiling down to a dedicated few. He is likely to say something over-the-top inflammatory in desperation of keeping ratings. One of his True Believers may act upon it.

    His attitudes towards women as chattel is unambiguously the most repugnant thing about him, and from there the list long. He says things about my daughter and granddaughters which cannot be allowed to continue. He may not have mentioned them by name, but he means them as well as every other woman on earth. His True Believers then go home from their jobs, if they have one, and proceed to treat their women "lahk Rush sayez......"

    Time to send that waste of oxygen nobody packing. Flush Rush is so apropos. It's what you do with shit.
